A little bit better...

Monday's workout got rained out, so we had to workout from home. As bummed as I was that we couldn't go to the park for Body Back, there was one silver lining here... NO SCALE!!! Phewwwww! Saved by the RAIN!

So as we got the email of the exercises to do I got started. I completed it, but let me tell you, it was MUCH MUCH harder to give it my all when I was all alone. I thrive off of all the other energy from the group, these girls push me to go farther, faster, and become stronger. So needless to say it wasn't the best workout I've had, maybe because I was so careful not to be too loud with the grunting since Blake and Eric were fast asleep in the other room. And we all know that the grunting helps you keep up the pace (that's why all the porn stars and tennis pros do it).

As far as Monday went, I felt a little better about falling off the train last week when I got a note from one of my fellow body backers. Turns out she read my blog and was having an equally tough time staying on track. Imagine that! You mean, I'm not the only one feeling guilty about eating so poorly this week??! Hallelujah! Ladies, Its amazing what a little support can do. I instantly felt re-energized and ready for a fresh start. We made a pact to stick together, eat better this week, and get back on track. I love me some Amy!

So in order to do this, I went to the grocery store to stock up on all the good stuff, threw away all the bad stuff, and planned out my meals for the week. In honor of my new pact with my sweat sister, I will share what we are having for dinner tonight:

Crock Pot Chicken Verde

4 Chicken Breasts
16 oz jar of Salsa Verde
1 can pinto beans (drained)
1 can corn (drained)
1 onion (chopped)
** optional brown rice

Place Chicken and other ingredients into Slow Cooker (except for the cilantro, rice). Cook on low for 6-8 hours (until chicken is cooked through). Serve alone or on a bed of brown rice and Enjoy!

I can smell it cooking now and I CANNOT wait for dinner!!!
