I've been keeping busy, using my extra hour to shop at Goodwill. I got a couple more pair of short pants (what do you call shorts that go to your knee? Long shorts? Short pants?). I scored a cute pink pair a few weeks ago and have been loving them. Monday I picked up a blue pair and a black pair. I got some inexpensive t-shirts last week at Forever 21 (the type of store I could *never* shop at before) so I'm fairly solid in the summer clothes department. Maybe by next summer I can wear tank tops (gasp!).
The other health/fitness related activity has been the arrival of the George Foreman challenge material. I am excited that it cooks more than 1-2 servings.
So I got right to work. I took the kids to the library for story time this morning and then we walked to a local bakery for snacks. The bakery gives a free cookie to the kids that go to story time, which is nice. I steered clear of the baked goods and had a Fage 0% yogurt with a Del Monte canned lite mixed fruit. I'd packed this and snacks for the kids before we left. I was happy to get home and make a real lunch.
I washed the (removable) grill plates and then plugged it in to heat up (8 minutes). Then I plopped my frozen chicken breast on there (Foster Farms, thin sliced from Costco) with a little salt and garlic powder. I had nothing to go on in terms of how long it might take so I guessed at around 15 minutes. The top puts pressure on the chicken so I figured it'd cook pretty quick, and it did.

I put the chicken on my dressed up sandwich thin and voila!
|Sandwich thin, mache, tomatoes, honey mustard, chicken breast - YUM!|
|Brushed on a hint of olive oil, then salt and pepper.|
But I am seriously itching to go to the gym. I'm going to see if Miguel will clear me to go tonight. I just want to get inside and do something.
