Back on the Work Out Wagon....

So, I worked out and worked out and worked out before the wedding. Best shape of my life. Then, I got married and thought, I'll just take a month off. Then one month turned into 6 months...and here we are.

They just built an LA Fitness right next to my office, so I joined yesterday and decided to try my first morning work out today.

The alarm went off at 5:45, and off I went. It wasn't so bad - but it was early! I ran 2 miles and called it a day. Not the best work out, I know, but it's been a long time! I was worried about showering and getting ready at the gym, but it wasn't so bad. The showers there are bigger than our master shower at home, so that was nice. I think I'm going to need a little shower caddi or something...

It's nice to not have to wonder if I am going to make it to the gym tonight :)

Crock Pot Chicken

So, I am on quest for easy dinners that keep my husband interested...we are trying to eat healthy and so tired of chicken and I thought I would try something new.

Put two large frozen chicken breasts in my crock pot this morning, and poured a can of rotel over it. I set it on low, and off to work I went. This was at about 6:45 this morning.

When Jeff got home around three, I asked him to stir it up, and he added a little water and some salsa. I have no idea how much, but I think it would have been fine without it if you didn't want to mess with it. It cooked for about 11 hours on low, but I think it would have been fine at 6-7 hours, or less if the chicken wasn't frozen.

I got home, cooked some corn and some minute rice, and put the chicken and the rotel over a bed of rice. It was so good! The chicken was so tender and juicy - it will definately be in our dinner rotation!

Happy Cooking!
