Workout Wednesday

I've been talking about food a lot lately...and not to worry I have a dinner recap for you...but I thought I would discuss my typical workout plan in case you were wondering.  Most mornings I walk with my workout buddy Rebecca which is a great start to the morning.  We usually cover 1.5 - 1.7 miles and we try to go each morning, but it is rare that we make it all five days.

At lunch time I usually spend that hour in the gym at work.  I work on a college campus, so the gym is easily accessible and it offers yoga which I take at lunch time on Monday.  I have two office gym buddies and we hit the gym at lunch on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Today I am trying something new and I am heading to Memorial Park with my friend Roberta after work for a walk (and maybe a tiny bit of jogging).  I am looking forward to that since she is taking me to a path I have never tried over there before.  YAY!

On Saturdays I come to the gym on campus in the morning and try and do 45 minutes to an hour of cardio and then some strength training.  On Sunday, I rest.  I like Sundays.  :)  And that about sums up how I get my calorie burn on during the week.

Now back to food.  Last night for dinner we made steak, salad, roasted broccoli and couscous (provided by Rebecca, she joined us for dinner).  She sauteed zucchini and onion and mixed it into her couscous.  It was delicious.

The steak was extra yummy last night.  We were eating later than normal, so I put it in Allegro to marinate.  This stuff is amazing.  I suggest you try it, you will not regret it.



The broccoli I roasted the same way I do my other roasted veggies, little olive oil, garlic salt, 400 degrees, toss mid roasting, roast about 30 minutes.

And of course the side salad with the Awesome Balsamic Dressing.

The whole dinner came in at 12 weight watchers points.  Not bad at all.

Today the pen color shall be pink...because really, how can you go wrong with pink?

And Trixie wanted to say hello.  She said she is not featured nearly enough on the blog and that I needed to fix that.

"It's about time."
I told her she needed to up her game of doing silly things like Sammy does.  I think she was offended at the suggestion.

Have a great day!  We are halfway to the weekend!


  1. your workout plan and that dinner are inspiring!

    I bought some couscous to try out on one of my solo nights - will try it out to see if I like it and then if I do, try to sell K on it :)

  2. Oh, I think you will love the couscous! It is great. Have you tried quinoa?


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments make my day and I do my very best to respond to each and every one of them.
