By 5 pm, the snow was coming down harder, but guilt strengthened my motivation and I drove to the gym, determined to get a good workout. I did 4 miles on the treadmill and a BodyWorks class. The teacher really worked us. I didn't realize it then, but this morning, my quads, inner thighs and shoulders were really sore. So sore that I skipped the gym today and just did 45 minutes on the exercise bike along with a few half-a$$ ab exercises.
When I find myself lacking creativity and enterprise in the food department, I resort to tried and tested dishes...like Curried Chicken and spinach grilled sandwich, which we've eaten a million times. I think this was one of Rachel Ray's recipes originally, but I've tried it so many times, it's gotten very customized along the way.
What you see below is chicken and spinach (mixed in a paste of mayo, lime juice, yoghurt, grated ginger, curry powder, chilli powder and salt, and cooked in olive oil), that goes betweeen 2 slices of whole wheat bread. A slice of cheese is added to the sandwich and grilled. Very quick and painless (and I assure you, tasty). It goes down well with a glass of milk.
