Sometimes I like to make a big batch of something that James can take with him to work for lunch or just eat whenever he’s hungry.
The other night I decided to make him some baked pasta. I thought it would be something he could eat throughout the week.
That was my fault.
I failed to remember that James can eat. A lot.
It was gone in about a day.
At least I know he likes it! And it was ridiculously easy to make.
I used some wheat pasta I got from TJ’s and boiled it until tender. Then I spread it out in a baking dish with some defrosted frozen broccoli and peas as well as some fresh mushrooms chopped up. Then I poured some marinara sauce over it all and mixed it up.
I sprinkled some part skim pizza blend shredded cheese on top (maybe 3/4 of a c.) and popped it into a 350* oven for 25 minutes.
and voila! You have a happy guy clamoring to eat up some pasta.
I’m sure I will be making this many, many more times. (Like our new bowls?? James’ mom gave of an old set of Blue Willow China she no longer uses! I love it!)
When I came home from work today, I did about 30 minutes of Yoga. It felt so wonderful! I really need to start doing Yoga more often. I’d love to do it 3-4 times a week.
Does anyone else with dogs have problems exercising/yoga-ing with them around?? Whenever i get down on the floor to do a move, Toby promptly takes that as a sign that’ it’s time to play.
Here’s me pushing him away with my feet while he tries to bring duckie over:
This mostly happens at the beginning when I’m in child’s pose and he comes over and starts head butting me! haha
It’s supposed to rain ALL WEEKEND! On Saturday it says “heavy rain” !! And I can tell you right now there’s no way I’m doing a long run on the treadmill… Let’s hope it all works out.
I got a comment from In My Tummy the other day about which training plan I was doing for my half. Well I kind of fell off the training plan wagon. I got sick one weekend and didn’t run then I just kept revising. Basically, I’m doing one day a week of speedwork, one day of crosstraining, one rest day, 3 days of 3.8-4.2 mile runs and 1 long run.
So a typical week looks like this:
|XT||Rest||3.8 mi||3.8 mi||4.2 mi||speedwork||10 mi|
XT is usually some time on the elliptical.
For my long runs, my weeks ended up going like this:
|8 miles||sick||~ 9.5 miles||10 miles||8 miles||11 miles||12 miles||6 miles||RACE!|
So that’s my plan! Wow this was a longer post then I thought it would be!!
What’s your favorite ice cream topping?? Mine is chocolate chips and strawberries! yummmm…..
