Is it Monday.........YES!

It's starting off to be a GREAT Monday! I got up and ran first thing this morning without even a drop of coffee in me...insane! I never do that! But I was feeling antsy to get out there since it's starting to get light out at like 6:15am.

My hip felt a little tight when I woke up. I stretched out before I ran and kept it to a 30 minute run. So I probably ran just under 4 miles. I came home and did some stretching and put ice on my hip right away while I drank a cup of coffee! It still feels little tight but it doesn't hurt. I am going to yoga this morning after I lift weights so hopefully I will feel 100% again in the morning and be able to run some distance.

I got a great recipe from a blog I read. She made chicken with carrots, zucchini and new potatoes; tossed in olive oil, whole grain mustard, rosemary, salt and pepper. Well, I didn't have rosemary, carrots, zucchini, or red potatoes, OR whole grain mustard! LOL! So, I made this:

My version is chicken breasts and chicken thighs, regular potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, onion, red bell pepper, and asparagus; all tossed in olive oil, dijon mustard, salt and pepper. All three dishes went in to the oven at 400 for 25 minutes then I tossed the veggies around and turned the chicken and set the timer for another 20 minutes. It was sooooo good. I made A LOT. It took 3 dishes to cook all of it!! The picture is after Justin and I had both had a serving and I combined it all into one dish. I ate that for 2 meals yesterday, Justin ate it for one and then we have tons left over for today! Awesome.

This morning I had 1 slice of gluten free bread and egg whites for breakfast:

It was fabulous!

I have decided that I am definitely starting the P90X today! I have my little calendar all made up of what DVD to do on what day and it's color coded by phase and I can "X" off each day as I do it!! I work well with systems in place like that!! ha! We'll see how it goes.
P90X is always hard for me to stick with for the 90 days because it's a lot of the same thing over and over. I do great for the first 60 days and then I get bored. It's an awesome workout, but I need variety!! I am still going to give a shot (again!). I am more structured with my workouts now than in years past when I have done the program.

After P90X is YOGA! I can't wait to go to YOGA!!

Hope everyone is having a great start to the day!! Happy Monday!
