So a few weeks ago as I started my workout Monday, I noticed on the board, one of my favorite exercises. The dead lift. Most women cringe at lifting, I live for it. I get so much energy and power from it, that it lasts for days on end. So two weeks ago I stopped at 130 lbs. My trainer noted that I could go MUCH heavier. So today we revisited the dead lift for the first part of the workout and I reached a personal best of 195 lbs. Love it!!!
Then it was off to a local farm for veggie shopping. I picked up scallions, a lemon cucumber, normal cucumbers, tomatoes, fennel, plums, bananas and fresh jalapenos.
Then it was down to Providence to pick up my daughter and a great short visit with my sister and my newborn niece. My sister commented on how good I looked and we both smiled and I went into detail about my morning at the gym.
So now to dinner..I made a great salad with spinach, red cabbage, red pepper, fennel, red onion, avocado, tomatoes and chicken.
For the chicken I used a covered skillet and one chicken breast, sea salt to taste, pepper, ginger, one diced jalapeno and the juice from one quarter of a lime. Turn it to medium heat, cover and flip after 10 minutes to finish cooking for an additional 5-10 minutes. Cut up and serve on the salad. I always use a vinaigrette dressing with my salads, and this was just so good.
