Good morning, friends! It’s weird that it’s already Thursday, huh? Short weeks go by so quickly!
On Tuesday night, which felt like Monday, it was Matt’s night to make dinner per our weekly dinner challenge. (Every Tuesday, we alternate one person being in charge of finding a cool new dinner recipe to try, just to keep things interesting!) He decided to follow a recipe he found online for Chinese Walnut Chicken.
Not the most beautiful meal, but it was seriously delicious! We would definitely make this again. Matt followed the recipe (which is linked to above) more or less but used shallots instead of scallions, and added garlic. He also added some fresh sprouts into the final product.
He said it was pretty easy to make and it was so, so good! Two thumbs up.
Thanks to Matt for the yummy and creative dinner. If you guys want to mix it up, definitely recommend that recipe! It was kind of like cashew chicken, but more interesting.
On the workout front this week, on Tuesday morning I got in a nice swim, which felt good for my poor bruised knee. Yesterday morning, I made it to 6 a.m. CrossFit – still really loving the vibe and instructors at the early classes. Here I am working on my Toes to Bar (TTB) skills!
Those things are tough! As for our WOD, we did 2 rounds for time of: 50 wallballs (I used a 12 pound ball) and 25 step ups onto a box. It was tough!
On the running front, I was supposed to get in a run with my friend Sokphal this morning but I unfortunately had to bail – my right knee is feeling pretty tender still from my bike crash on Friday and I figured a day of rest would be a good thing. I’m crossing my fingers big time that it will be okay for next weekend’s Runner’s World Festival!
How have your workouts been this week? Any great ones? And any good meals/new recipes to report? I’ll be back tomorrow to share a quick healthy dinner recipe!
Zara says: have a nice day! Clearly she is.
