Another week and weekend has come and gone. Back to work tomorrow. It has been a pretty laid back weekend, due to the fact I had a headache for most of it. I hate not feeling good on the weekend. This past few days I have been trying to give my left foot a break. After running on the treadmill Wednesday and Thursday, my left foot was hurting around the ankle so I figured I would give it a break. I still went to the gym, but I stuck with the exercise bikes and arc trainer. I also did the 30 minute workout express which includes cardio and weights.
Yesterday I made a favorite recipe "Zucchini and Spaghetti Squash Lasagna." I had a package of sliced white mushrooms in the fridge so I added a layer of mushrooms to the lasagna. I was worried that it would add excess water, but it turned out delicious. I had all the ingrediants laid out on the counter of my small kitchen and while I had my back turned assembling the lasagna my cat knocked the mozzarella cheese to the floor. He was happy! I didn't have any more mozzarella so I had to use a Mexican blend for part of it. Still good though!
This past week I found a large package of chopped kale at the local Wal-Mart. Earlier in the week I experimented with kale chips. They turned out ok, but I used too much salt. So I still have a ton of kale in the fridge. Tonight I cooked a turkey burger on the George Foreman. While it was cooking I sauteed some onion, green pepper, mushrooms, garlic, and kale with balmasic vinegar. I put it on top of the turkey burger with some Laughing Cow light swiss cheese on a sandwich thin bun. It wasn't too bad. It just needed something to hold it together a little better.
Tomorrow is a new week and hopefully it will be a good week, healthy week.
