One of the main benefits of Matt working from home means we get to eat lunch together most days. He had thrown together a quick pasta dish that included some whole wheat penne, some tomato sauce and the remainder of my roasted eggplant & red peppers. I added a dollop of pesto for some flavor.
I had planned to go for a run/walk after work but the skies literally opened up on the state of Iowa around lunch time yesterday. Thunder, lightning, flash flooding, hail – the works. Needless to say I cancelled my run. I did think of taking my run indoors or at least trading it in for a quick yoga session, but I ended up skipping it all together.
As part of my Triathlon training program I need to add in a swim, a bike, and a run each week. Since Monday and Wednesdays are reserved for yoga, that leaves Tuesday and Thursday and the weekend.
The problem is – I am not a Weekend Worker-outer! So I’ve figured out that Tuesday & Thursday will be two of the days and then that leaves either a Saturday or Sunday for a longer run or ride. Now I just need to stick to my plan!
Sometime between figuring out things for Yoga Month May & heading back to the pool Matt & I shared a bag of Kettle Corn.
On the way home from coaching I stopped by Mekong to grab some takeout. I’ve been craving Chinese food for a while and sometimes weekend nights just scream takeout & a movie to me.
I ordered the Thai Lemon Chicken: Chicken stir-fry with lemon grass, onion, scallion and lemon leaf.
Served with steamed rice noodle and garnished with steamed broccoli.
And two Vietnamese Vegetable Spring Eggs Rolls to share.
I was still a little hungry after my portion so I tried Matt’s Hot Braised Pork. It was fried and saucy, so obviously it tasted amazing. I ended up having about the same size portion of his dish.
And it was worth every tasty bite!
Are you a weekend worker-outer? How do you stay ‘on track’ when you don’t have the consistency of your work/school week?
