Hope your Monday was a good one?  Mine was okay for Monday.  Monday’s get such a bad rap, don’t they?  It’s a day when all dentist appointments should be scheduled because that way, the appointment doesn’t ruin a better day of the week, like a Thursday.  Ever notice that people at work begin getting a little more cheerful around Wednesday afternoon, Thursday morning?  On Friday, everyone is wearing a smile.  We just LUV our weekends!

What to do for a Monday dinner?  I followed someone elses recipe for a Frittata. It didn’t work out for me because instead of using the 9 x 9 dish as suggested, I used my great big, high sided stove top pan that I would typically saute the ingredients then put directly into the oven.  It was too large of a diameter and consequently, the Frittata remained flat and overcooked.  The original recipe can be found at Danzante Wines and make sure you cook in that 9 x 9 dish so it will be thick and moist.

I boiled some green beans with a little salt, pepper and parsley.

I added some nice hot salsa because, as I said, the dish turned out a bit dry and needed some more flavor.

Lets SALSA!

It’s still fairly early and I am going to take advantage of that and get some fun things accomplished.  So you all take care and keep smiling because it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.

Can you believe it is already Monday?!  Get up and get energized because the week begins again (technically, some start the week on Sunday.. not me).

The alarm went off and I was NOT ready for it, but up I got.  Ted insists I mumbled something, which I am denying but then again, I could have been sleep walking to the bathroom. 

Today was a chest workout with biceps.  I could not, in any way, get my pre-workout shake down. I ate too many greens and beans last night which apparently had not digested, at least they didn’t feel digested.  Not having the shake didn’t seem to bother me because I was able to get through 4 miles on the treadmill and a good 42 minutes of chest and biceps.  Shane and I walked about 3 miles.

Chest and Biceps:  4 sets 12 repetitions each.

  • Using the cable machine and incline bench: Incline chest press + concentration curls.
  • Using the incline bench and dumb bells, incline flies + hammer curls
  • Using the cable machine, standing chest press + incline bench bicep curls.
  • Again, cable machine, pec crossovers + curl bar bicep curls.
  • Feet up on bench, push ups + ball crunches.

Not a bad workout for a Monday.

Breakfast was Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Cereal with an Oolong orange-mango tea bag. I added 1 tsp raisins.  A Jay Robb shake with raspberries. 1/2 a grapefruit.

We watched a pretty good DVD last night:  Appaloosa.   I fell asleep about 3/4 way through, not because it was boring but because I was pretty tired.  I really like Rene Zellweger and can’t wait to see her new movie that’s out.

Hope your day goes well.
