simple supper

By the time I got home from the gym tonight, I was starving!  I was shaky and dizzy and needed food asap.  I whipped all of this up pretty quickly – I love when I can do that with healthy food.

While I was putting together this delicious and healthy meal, I munched on some hummus and crackers.

It held me over for about 10 minutes until my dinner plate was full of food.  Last week when I made my Black Bean Burgers, I put one in the freezer to save for when I needed a quick meal.  Today was the day!  I popped the burger in the microwave for 1 minute to heat it up and toasted a whole wheat sandwich thin.  While those were heating up, I made a quick salad with romaine, sliced almonds, raisins and apricot stilton.  Then, I spread my sandwich thin with a laughing cow wedge and added the veggie burger.  I served the burger and salad along with some veggie chips.

This was a great healthy and quick meal – I’m stuffed!

Backing up to the gym.  I did a quick 45 minute easy 5 mile run when I got there, then hit up the weights.  The treadmill was torture!  I am so ready to run outside in warm weather again.  But, I made it.  For my weight session, I used circuit training and tried to hit the major muscles without overdoing it, since I haven’t lifted weights in about a week!

Circuit Weight Session

  • Bicep Curls
  • Overhead press with squat
  • Bicycles
  • Lunge with alternating front and side raises
  • Tricep kickback
  • V-ups
  • Hammer curls
  • Upright row with deadlift
  • Fly’s and tricep row
  • Situps

This workout felt great.  I plan to do one more weight session this week and then take next week off while I taper for my half marathon!!

I updated my Running Laps page with some running and workout tips, which I plan to update often!  Check it out here.

I also added some Weight Loss & Healthy Living Tips to my About me page!  Be sure to check them out.  I use a lot of these tips now, even though i’m not trying to lose weight.  They are good healthy living and maintenance tips as well.

Have a great night blog friends!
