Monday morning started off as usual, an early morning trip to the gym. I was going to do the Stairmaster again but when I got there I was just rubber legged walking up the steps so I figured there was no way I would be able to do a full workout. So instead of doing something lazy I decided to make myself sweat by putting together a mini spin class. Though it was only 25 minutes I was dripping by the end of it and proud of myself for pushing the workout further than I had planned.
Man what a difference a weekend makes! Though I got frustrated at some things during the day, I was so recharged from the weekend I didn’t let it phase me. I cruised through the work day and after went to the store to pick up a few things for dinner.
I had taken leftover meat out of the freezer to grill but needed a side and some vegetables so I went to see what looked good. I obviously couldn’t pass up some fresh corn and there was also a big sale on avocados so I grabbed two of those as well along with some couscous.
I made a simple marinade for the chicken (recipe below) and the boyfriend did the grilling while I made an avocado and tomato salad and prepared the couscous and corn. Everything tasted so fresh and delicious it was hard for me to stop, I”m glad I did though because now I have leftovers for lunch!
