Saturday Stuff

My Saturday included everything from yoga to cleaning baseboards to pool time with friends. It was pretty nice, especially since I started the day by sleeping until 9 a.m. I actually had to drag myself out of bed and over to the gym of our very first Saturday class at the new location. We had a little party after class to celebrate the winners of our Paleo Challenge.

I baked a batch of my favorite peanut butter chocolate chip bars last night for the party. We were celebrating with non-Paleo foods – pizza, beer and peanut butter bars!

We had a great turnout for class! I planned on participating and doing the WOD but once I got there I decided to just take pictures/videos instead. I was pretty wiped out from yesterday’s workout and more in the mood for yoga rather than CrossFit.

After a trip to the farmers market and a couple hours by the pool with friends, I finally made my way back to my yoga mat. My practices have been few and far between over the past month and I was MORE than ready for 90 minutes of sweat and stretch.

Thank you so much to my sweet friend Angie for a beautiful and very challenging practice. I Tweeted Angie that I was eating a strawberry cupcake in preparation for her class and she assured me I would burn it off. She was right!

After class I went a little crazy cleaning and not only vacuumed and mopped but also wiped down all the baseboards. I took Sullie for a long walk while listening to a very interesting podcast. I got to work on dinner when we finished working. I had all the ingredients for stuffed chicken in the fridge.

I pounded out my chicken and then stuffed it with sautéed spinach, smoked sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese. I loosely followed this recipe.

I made a salad and whole wheat cous cous with sautéed mushrooms and parmesan for the side items. I love stuffed chicken. So easy and so tasty!

    It looks like you had an awesome Saturday. When you make dinner do you just make dinner for one or are you making multiple servings and saving them?

    Wow, crossfit must be really big in your area. I have been working with a trainer for 4 yrs, and he now wants to open his own gym, which I plan on investing in. But I am concerned about the lack of profile for crossfit in this area (metro east St. Louis). I have yet to encounter anyone who even knows what it is.

    Speaking of which, I have a hard time explaining to someone what crossfit is – how would you describe it?

    I don’t know what looks better–the chicken or the bars! I never think to roll up my chicken with some goodies on the inside. Every time I see a recipe of it, I make a mental note. Then the note never makes it from my brain to the plate!

    YUM – that chicken looks delish. I made something very similar in the crockpot a few yrs ago.
