Here’s a workout to try. Spend 30-45 minutes on the cardio equipment of your choice. After the cardio, do 15 minutes of my whatever-you-can-think-of routine. Basically, set a timer for 15 minutes and change your exercise each minute. Do push-ups, sit-ups, squats, bicep curls. JUST KEEP MOVING!
Today, I tried something new. I spent about five minutes rotating in what I will start calling the circle of death.
- 20 sit-ups
- 10 hip dips on the right side
- 5 push-ups
- 10 hip dips on the left side
I just went in a circle without resting in between. It was awesome/awful. I received a text from a friend during the process asking what I was doing. Usually, I don’t take my phone in the gym, but I had it today. Instead of answering, I sent a picture. This is how awful/awesome it was:
When I left the gym, I had to make a Christmas gift run, so by the time I made it back home I was nauseatingly hungry. I almost stopped at Chipotle on my way home, but then decided I could make my own salad at home. By the time I walked in the door, I already had it planned out. I used:
- the leftover rotisserie chicken
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1/2 onion
- 1 green pepper
- garlic salt
- 1/2 cup of canned corn
- 1/2 cup of black beans
- 1 tablespoon of sour cream
Put the tomatoes, onion, pepper, cumin, and garlic salt in the food processor and use the pulse button to chop. I did this because, for some reason, the jar salsa just didn’t sound good to me. At Chipotle, they always spoon out the pico. I really like that, so I made my own version.
Heat the chicken, the beans, and the corn in the microwave. Fill a bowl with all the lettuce and spinach you want.
Top the spinach and lettuce with a few spoonfuls of the salsa mixture.
Spoon on the beans, corn and chicken and put the sour cream on top!
Mix it all together. Take that Chipotle!
