When I got home from work, well even before I got home, I told myself I was going to work out before dinner. I announced it to my family when I walked in the door, immediately got changed and got busy! I did 20 minutes on my elliptical followed by 20 minutes of a Biggest Loser work out. Did you know that if you have Comcast Cable (in the Chicago-land area) that there is a channel on demand called Exercise TV, and there are hundreds of work outs to choose from for free! I found 6 Biggest Loser work outs, Taebo, Yoga, work outs with weights etc… so there is no reason at all that I can’t work out!
I was done by 5:45 and headed to the kitchen to make dinner. I had no idea what to make! I went to the store but only threw things in my basket hoping I would be able to come up with 5 meals this week for dinner.
I checked my freezer, I had frozen chicken tenders. So I thought I would cook those up, sprinkled with Lemon Pepper Seasoning. I had a box of wild grain rice, so I cooked that up. I was going to make a side salad when I decided I would just put my chicken ON the salad!
Does anyone else have this Celebrate plate from Pampered Chef? I used it tonight to celebrate me working out!
So on my plate I had baby spinach, mixed greens, 1 small apple, chopped, celery, carrots, soy nuts, red onion, the chicken and Paul Newman’s Light Honey Mustard Vinaigrette.
It was so good I could have eaten another plate, BUT I didn’t!!
I have a favor to ask of you. I met John at the Food Buzz web site and he is trying to win a contest for Murphy-Goode Winery’s “A Really Good Job” Sweepstakes where he can tour and talk and write about the wine country for 6 months! How cool is that? BUT, in order for him to get to the next level, he needs as many votes as he can get! Click on this link to watch his short video and vote today! Check out his fantastic blog too!

I hope everyone has a great day!
