I got up first thing this morning and hit up the treadmill at the gym for a run. I debated 4ish miles. As I got moving, I began to think that 3 miles would be a good run. I felt the strength training from yesterday in my arms, chest and abs as I ran. (A good ache.) Also, the person on the treadmill next to me started coughing like crazy...so as soon as I hit 3, I was done.
The weather forecast for this evening had the chance for some slick precipitation, so while my original plan was to hit the gym for a yoga class tonight, I changed my plan and focus for the afternoon/evening.
I had a cup of tea, and found a good quiche recipe. I thought I had seen a roasted butternut squash and goat cheese quiche recipe in Runners World...turns out it was a roasted butternut, caramelized onion and feta cheese frittata. So I tweaked it.
I found this recipe on Pinterest http://www.tasteandtellblog.com/quiche-recipe-butternut-squash-kale/ With no kale in the house and a desire to add goat cheese to a quiche, I adjusted the recipe and it came out fantastic. The fact that I had made the crust ahead of time was a bonus.
And in other news, I should make quiche more often....
Oh yeah, and since I was famished while it was cooking, I started with a salad. It was a tasty and healthy homemade dinner. When I focus on cooking, I enjoy the food I eat so much more. I'm thankful for the shift in focus this afternoon.
I also enjoyed having Zootoopia on in the background as I prepped dinner. A great movie that I will watch a few more times at least. The tears in the kitchen tonight came from some great scenes, not when I sliced the onion.
I’m definitely feeling the muscle soreness from yesterday’s strength training….from chest, to shoulders, to tris and abs. I'm glad I feel it in those muscles because that means I lifted correctly yesterday. I'm glad that strength training is a focus for me right now.
**PS….also slept like a champ last night, thanks to a solid strength workout and a bit of cardio yesterday. My goal tonight is another solid night’s sleep. My body is ready for bed…..and now I can hit the bed now that the Huskies have just won their 90th game in a row, to tie their old record! Woo hoo!
Good night everyone.
