This is my new favorite place, The Salty Pig. Somehow I have been there three times and I finally managed to take a couple of pics. Love everything I’ve eaten there and an awesome wine list. Also, you can practically drink the olive oil, it is SO amazing.
Although this pizza almost made me, but I haven’t forgotten to release my workout plan, here it is…
Mon – Accidental rest day
Tues – Run 2m
Wed – Quality treadmill time
Thurs – Strength training
Fri – Cardio, including some miles
Sat – Run, run, run
Sun – Run, run, run
You know that I HATE the treadmill, right? Serious hatred.
Well, this morning I was loving it so I thought, for those that hate the treadmill as much as me, try this plan out (6.0 is my typical pace, so you might want to increase or decrease the MPH as needed.)
I did this with my usual 1% incline. Try it out and let me know what you think!
How was your weekend? It was amazingly warm here on Saturday. Ben and I had a nice and easy run around our new neighborhood, couldn’t pass up the awesome temperatures in January.
So it’s Sunday and you know what that means! Time to make the lunches. As usual I’ll be having salad, but so will Ben this week. What do you have your lunch? Do you dine out or bring in your lunch? Anyone else have a routine like me on Sunday afternoons?
I often get asked how I actually keep my lettuce in edible condition for the week. I think the key is buying fresh (non pre-packaged) lettuce, chopping, washing and then drying with a salad spinner. I’ve seriously never had a problem with my salad greens wilting.
Ben’s salad of the week – green leaf and red leaf lettuce, shredded rotisserie chicken, lemon & garlic olives, cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella.
My salad of the week – green leaf lettuce, cucumber, kalamata olives, 1/4 cup hummus and 1/4 cup tabouli. If you ever need to make a quick and easy salad and don’t have dressing on hand (or want something healthy), add hummus and shake, shake, shake. Each leafs gets a nice hummus coating.
I have to say, my new commute is pretty awesome. Not only do I have a guaranteed two miles of walking every day, but the majority of my walk is along Newbury Street. Pretty awesome, except maybe for my bank account.
Other than the Somerville Jingle Bell, this has really been the coldest day we’ve had so far. Brrrrrr, definitely a night for soup.
I realized after I shared my resolutions yesterday, that I totally disregarded my workout plans for the week. Not surprising that resulted in not working out today. Great job kicking off that New Year Jess! Well, I still have the opportunity to win a gold star this week, it’s not over yet.
