Friday’s Food & Fitness: Rosemary Chicken + Working It
May 13, 2016
Hello friends!! Happy Friday! How was your week? Mine seemed to fly by and it seems like every week I have yet another thing to fit into my schedule, but who can complain?
Welcome to Friday’s Food & Fitness!
The winner this week is for sure this Rosemary Chicken Salad. Now, I can’t take credit for the recipe because it is from Skinnytaste but what I can tell you is that it is delicious!
I made it for dinner and it was the perfect balance between light salad and healthy protein. It was filling without being overfilling and tasty but simple. Definitely give the recipe a try!
Another win for the week was a pesto I made to top my spinach fettuccine. I made it with the usual suspects: basil, lemon, pine nuts, parmesan cheese and garlic and then I added in some extra oomph with argula, kale and avocado. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo because I was so focused on eating it, but give it a try and let me know if you like it!
Has anyone else noticed this except me? You find something you love, whether it be barre, yoga, running, pilates, CrossFit, whatever, and you do it all the time. But then, you slowly stop seeing the same results or maybe you get a little bored or you just aren’t being pushed as hard as you were in the beginning? This has happened to me on countless occasions. So how do you push through? You work at it.
Seriously, this week, I recommitted to some of my favorite workouts and I rediscovered why I love them so much. I spent time making new playlists, coming up with new and challenging moves and exploring ways I could take my workouts further. And it worked, I felt energized and I could feel the results. Like everything in life, you just have to keep working at it!
Readers, what was your favorite meal from the week? Where do you get your meal inspiration from? How do you push past plateaus and stay committed to your workouts?
Having a buddy with whom to workout gets me past a plateau and to have more fun with the workout. If I am in a lull, then no self-motivation kicks in–I need an intervention! My intervention is good conversation and enjoyment of the routine with someone who likes it, too!
