Well, today is technically the 2nd day of Spring. Which is a crock of bull considering this is my current view….
Tomorrow was supposed to be the high school season opener for the softball team and we were all excited, but it doesn’t seem likely that it’s gonna happen.
And because I refuse to accept that Spring is still eluding us, Sugar Dog and I ventured out for a walk. And it was pretty much miserable, but we did it.
I got a couple of loads of laundry done on this snow day, which was supposed to actually be a snow makeup day for the kids, and my workout. Speaking of which, I have discovered a new workout plan. Actually, it’s not new at all, but perhaps it has been forgotten. It’s calisthenics! Old school exercise. And more specifically, it is this book, Convict Conditioning. It has completely changed the way I am currently going about my fitness. Mainly because I hit a major wall with weightlifting. My joints were constantly hurting and I was just really burnt out on the whole thing. So I somehow stumbled across this book and ordered it mainly because I was looking for a way to stay fit without killing my joints. And I absolutely LOVE it! I will update my progress in another post, but I am just a little over a month in and definitely plan to continue this method for the foreseeable future.
And just because it is rare that we are all here and able to sit down at the table together at the same time, and even rarer that EVERYONE loves the same thing, here is the recipe for what we had tonight. Chicken Quesadillas. Nothing fancy, but a simple and quick weeknight meal. (Forgot to get a pic, sorry)
- 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
- small onion, sliced
- red bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 C salsa
- 1/2 C canned black beans, rinsed
- 6″ tortillas
- 1 1/2 C shredded cheese
- Spray skillet and cook chicken.
- Add peppers and onion & cook until crisp-tender.
- Stir in salsa.
- Spoon 1/4 C chicken mixture onto half of tortilla.
- Fold over & cook on sprayed griddle or skillet until lightly browned on both sides.
- Enjoy with your favorite sides!
