I haven’t turned off the news or stopped stalking Twitter. Staying up to date on this horrible tragedy seems to be the only thing I can focus on this week. I just cannot fathom what all of those people are going through.
It leaves me in this weird place where I don’t want to focus or care about anything else. It all just seems insignificant but I know that we will all have to move forward.
It was a somber day at work. Nothing of consequence happened and the day passed in a haze. Once I arrived home I headed for the gym for a tough upper body workout that I came up with on the fly.
My arms, back, and chest hurt today, not going to sugar coat it. I used a heavy weights and pushed hard through the sets so my DOMS is well deserved.
I came up with dinner on the fly as well last night. I am really trying to actually cook after work rather than throw random contents of the fridge/freezer on a plate and call it a meal. I think it is an important part of work/life balance. I enjoy cooking once I actually start…I just need to remember that.
I sautéed kale in olive oil with salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast, and added in a bit of shredded chicken while the pasta was cooking. Once drained I added the pasta to the kale mixture, added in a bit more EVOO, and sat down to a lovely meal.
One last thing before I go…
It was a big day for my plus one! After a long hiatus he tied up his new Nike’s and headed out for his first run in years. I am beyond proud and so excited to welcome a new running buddy.
This is the beginning of a beautiful career for him!
Question: Do you cook dinner during the week or rely on quick staple foods?
