Terrible Tuesday! I only say this because the week is draggggging.
I wish there could be more than just 24 hours in a single day. Between work and the holidays coming up I feel like I can’t get everything done that I need to – which tends to stress me out a bit. What else stresses me out? Walking outside to snow on the ground.. especially when I had NO IDEA it was suppose to snow. Bye bye fall, hello winter!
After a long and stressful day at the office, I came home and made a pretty amazing dinner and had some left over for my lunch tomorrow. Double win!
I made a little spicy stir fry. I simply added about 6 oz of steak, fried this in a pan with some oil until it was cooked the whole way through. Meanwhile I chopped up 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 yellow pepper, 1/4 of a red onion, and added some corn and added it into the pan until the veggies were sauteed. To add a little kick, I sprinkled some McCormick taco seasoning with some water and left it simmer for about 5 minutes. Then I added some salt, pepper, paprika, and chili powder to give it even more flavor. It was amazing and gave me the energy I needed to workout!
Tonight’s workout was intense.. I completed Turbo Fire – Fire 30 and P90X Arms & Shoulders. I was drenched in sweat but it felt so good! With each workout, I know I am getting closer to my goal and that is the mindset I plan on sticking with. I’ve noticed the more involved you get in your workouts and nutrition, the more you will be able to stick with it.
What better way to workout like an athlete than to represent them while doing your workout? Steelers pride – especially for my favorite quarterback (even if he probably won’t play for rest of the season.) It’s the little things that keep me motivated.
Time for me to unwind, cuddle up in bed, catch up on some Gossip Girl while drinking some green tea, and relaxing. I hope everyone is safe out in this weather! 🙂
