Andrea got a puppy!! Meet Logan!
He’s such a sweetheart!
There was a little bit of drama and uncertainty earlier this week with the adoption. The woman was worried that Andrea had two roommates and thought we might party too much for the puppy. Andrea quickly let her know that we’re actually quite lame and like to spend our weekends waking up early for the gym, and assured her that the puppy would be in an excellent environment. So Tuesday night he was ours!!
He’s super smart and already learned how to sit in one day! Such a great addition to the family
Today was a busy day at work followed by a pretty good workout. I modified a 30 minute treadmill interval into a 45 minute interval that looked like this:
I actually beefed up the incline to 8.0 at the end. This is a workout I used to do more often about a month ago. I figured since Monday was pretty difficult for me, I would ease my way into more challenging intervals. Although I worked up a pretty good sweat, this workout definitely was no longer a challenge for me. Time to throw it away and up the ante for tomorrow’s workout. After the gym I drove home to do Ripped in 30. So far so good!
Lunch today was absolutely delicious! I made buffalo chicken salad as part of my plan to amp up my protein intake throughout the day.
Yum! Here’s the recipe:
Buffalo Chicken Salad (serves 4):
1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
0.5 cup of Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce
2 tbsp of Light Mayonnaise
0.5 cup of Carrots, chopped
Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. Place chicken breasts in the boiling water for 15 – 20 minutes until cooked through the center. Use a fork to pull the chicken apart. Combine the hot sauce, mayonnaise, and chopped carrots in a bowl with the shredded chicken. Refrigerate overnight and serve over lettuce! Add some ranch dressing or blue cheese to the salad if you wish. The calorie information below does not include any additional dressings.
A delicious lunch with lots of protein!
Dinner was the same as yesterday, more salmon with a Thai chile roasted garlic glaze and jasmine rice. I had a homemade “ice cream” sandwich for dessert too. I followed this recipe from Southern Plate and have had a TON of these in my freezer for awhile now. They’ll get eaten eventually!
Now it’s time to relax and catch up on my DVR!
