I know I’ve been kind of quiet on the exercise front, but I assure, I’ve been exercising. I’ve been keeping up with a 3x a week roller derby practice schedule, and trying to get in at least one run a week.
I’m looking into signing up for my first official 5k towards the end of October to serve as motivation to run a bit more.
The weather seems to be heading into the lower 90s, which means the cooler running weather is just around the corner (hopefully). I’d like to see how running on the incline treadmill has improved my outdoor running.
Last night, I made a quick and easy pasta dish with some of the leftover veggies from Sunday’s festivities.
I combined a can of northern beans, with some grape tomatoes, broccoli and sun dried tomatoes in a frying pan.
Just in case you were wondering, northern beans will explode if they get too hot. And they will hit you in the arm if you stand too close. I recommend cooking this on a medium heat seating, medium low if you’re a bit
I cooked this in a bit of Garlic Gold oil which was amazingly delicious.
Its taken me forever to buy this, but I’m so glad I did.
I asked Brian to pick up a fun-shaped pasta from Sunflower Market and he went with the fancy bow-tie, a personal favorite.
I cooked the pasta according to the directions on the package, and then added it to the pan of veggies.
I just let it hang out for a bit, added some crushed red pepper, and dinner was served.
Can’t beat this.
