I’m pleased to announce the winner of my Coles Gift Card as Ms Kerryn Woods aka the fit and fabulous one at 50. I chose Kek as the winner because she not only supplied me with one recipe, she outdid herself and supplied four! If you haven’t visited Fitbodies Food before, you’re in for a treat – lots of healthy recipes made from easily sourced ingredients.
This week has been the week to get back into some training. With my girls being on school holidays, strength training has had to take a backseat, however, I’ll be back on it next week.
Here’s what I did:
Monday: Teach RPM
Tuesday: Run with Emma approx 45 minutes. Strength training canned due to all day migraine that came on shortly after I got home..bummer!
Wednesday: RPM with John, deadlifts with Emma. I was rather impressed by my 70kg lift this morning. Even more impressed that Emma can lift 80kg, no problem.
Thursday: Run #2 with Emma – approx 45 minutes and a little hillier. Didn’t stop to walk until I hit the upward climb home (and that is one nasty sucker). Teach pilates, including some very concentrated tricep work. Today my abdominals, glutes and triceps know they’ve had a little workout!
Friday: Outdoor cycling session – 50 minutes, focus – consistency of pedal stroke and using the glutes. Teach Cycle – today was the “Yellow Jersey” ride of endurance – 70 minutes of fun and frivolity. Was disappointed that my HRM has started to play up – according to it, I was in tachycardia for most of it (220 bpm..NOT)
Saturday: I’m teaching Cycle again in the morning – the format is currently as much of a surprise to me as it will be to my participants – meaning I’ve got to hop off the blog and hop onto Itunes.
My grocery buying challenge has gone fairly well with the following results:
$40.00 fruit and vegetables
$20.00 meat (including some really tasty dog bones)
Where do carrots that are slowly becoming flexible and snow peas that are starting to lose their zip go instead of being thrown out? Into a left over rice and chicken concoction – that’s what.
How to make:
Grab an onion, some ginger and garlic paste and saute until fragrant. Add whatever protein you want – I added 300g chicken breast mince that was hiding in the recesses of the freezer. Add as many leftover vegetables as you like and 200g of brown rice. To make it taste even better, throw in a mixture of tamari and honey.
What are your favourite uses for leftover vegetables?
Hope everyone in blogworld has a wonderful weekend!
