crazy cabbage stir-fry

I headed to the gym after work (I love Friday nights when I have nothing to do) and had a super workout.  I started with weights and then moved to the treadmill for a tempo run.  Here’s what I did:

Upper Body Weights (30 minutes, circuit style)

  • 21’s (10 lb weights, 3 sets)
  • Overhead press (10 lb weights, 3 sets of 12)
  • Fly’s (7.5 lb weights, 3 sets of 12)
  • Front raises (7.5 lb weights, 3 sets of 12
  • Lunges (3 sets of 12, 10 lb weights,alternating legs)
  • Tricep dips on bench (3 sets of 12)
  • V-ups (3 sets of 12)
  • Squats (7.5 lb weights, 3 sets of 12)
  • Hammer curl (7.5 lb weights, 3 sets of 12)
  • Chest press (12.5 lb weights, 3 sets of 12)
  • Crunches (3 sets of 12)
  • Bicycles (25 sets)
  • Tricep kickbacks (7.5 lb weights, 3 sets of 12)
  • Deadlifts (10 lb weights, 3 sets of 12)
  • Upright rows (10 lb weights, 3 sets of 12)

6 Mile Tempo Run

  • Mile 1 – 9:30
  • Mile 2 – 9:00
  • Mile 3 – 8:30
  • Mile 4 – 8:00
  • Mile 5 – 7:30
  • Mile 6 – 9:13
  • Total = 51:47

What a workout!

Before my workout I snacked on a Clif Mojo Mountain Mix bar.

I had never had one of these before, but I was excited when I opened it because of all of the chunks of stuff in the bar!

It was ok, but I didn’t love it.  It did the trick for my workout though.

Once I got home, I was famished!  Time to cook something up with random stuff in our fridge – that is exactly what I did.  It was a crazy, but great mix!

Crazy Cabbage Stir-fry

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 head green cabbage
  • 1/4 head purple cabbage
  • 1 orange pepper
  • Juice from 1 orange
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1 cup cooked wheatberries
  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 1/4 cup raisins

I chopped up the cabbage and pepper into bite size pieces.

Then, heated the cabbage over medium high heat with a dash of olive oil.

Once heated through and wilted a bit, I added the pepper, salt and pepper, thyme and orange juice.

I had cooked wheatberries in the fridge, so I just nuked them in the microwave for a minute until warm.  I put the cooked cabbage on a plate and topped it with the wheatberries, raisins and peanuts.

Served with Trader Joe’s herb flatbread.

And, white wine.

It was an all around great quick meal for a Friday night at home!
