First and foremost I want to say thank you to each and every one of you who come and hang out in my corner of blog land on a daily basis. I never thought people would care to read my musings and now I feel like I have a little bloggy family. I joined the Fitblogger community a little while ago and guess who is their featured post today?! ME!!! You should go read the article, I really enjoyed writing it – It is called “How To Fake It Until You Make It” so go now and read it and let me know what you think.
Moving on… I made something new yesterday! Brussell sprouts! The one picture I took is pretty ugly so I am not going to share it with you. So I have tried to cook brussel sprouts a few times and have never liked them. I decided to go nuts and buy a giant bag of them and figure out a way to cook them that I like. I started out by setting my oven to 350F. I chopped off the bottom of the sprout and got rid of any brown / yellow leaves. Then I tossed them in EVOO, salt, and pepper, I popped them in the oven for about 30 minutes and shook them up a few times. How were they? Okay… Do you know what I did love though? The leaves that went in by themselves. They turned into potato chips basically. I would have made up an entire batch of these sprout chips but I had soccer last night and I can’t eat that much before soccer or my dinner will resurface and no one wants that. So tonight I will be making brussel sprout chips and I seriously can not wait.
I mentioned yesterday I was in severe need of doing some laundry and I was able to get it all done yesterday, victory! While my clothes were washing I hopped on the treadmill for an easy 3 miles (6.5). I switched the clothes over and then hit the weight room. I haven’t lifted in a while so this was all quite humbling, I am losing strength and that is NOT cool. My weight session looked like this:
10 x 3 @30lbs chest press 15 x 4 @10lbs chest fly 12 x 2 @10lbs shoulder raises 20 x 2 @20lbs bicep curls 12 x 2 @30lbs side bends
Nothing crazy exciting but my chest is rather sore this fine morning! Speaking of sore my entire body is basically screaming at me. I had about an hour between finishing lifting and soccer last night. We had no subs so it was constant sprinting for 40 minutes. I thought my heart was going beat out of my chest and that my legs were going to give out. My legs are mighty sore today as well. I wish I played soccer every night, it is seriously such a killer work out when there are no subs. You are just constantly running and its sprinting not cruising so your heart rate is sky high. Even when I feel like I am about to collapse I still love it! I am waiting to hear some info about rugby, maybe that will be my answer!
