Friday- 3 miles on treadmill
I knew a good run was in store after my not so great run outside. I just zoned out and ran with music. Sometimes just getting yourself to start your workout can be difficult, so I tell myself, “Just do it.” It felt great and I could’ve gone longer but we were down to one diaper, one. That’s a risky line to walk with a 2 year old so I needed to get to a store asap.
After successfully getting diapers before anything stinky happened, we had fun outside in the melting snow. It was actually not too cold out.
Maybe it was a bit cold to be out there without a jacket.
For dinner last night I wanted something light. After all the heavy dinners we had over the holidays, I wanted to make one of my favorite healthier dinners, not to mention it’s so easy.
BBQ Chicken Salad
2 chicken breasts (thawed or frozen)
BBQ sauce to taste
S&P to taste
hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
Pineapple chunks(I love pineapple with chicken, so this is optional)
Dressing(we prefer Ranch)
I put the chicken(mine was frozen) in an oven safe pan, sprinkle it with salt and pepper, and then cover each chicken breast with BBQ sauce. I put them in the oven for an hour and a half(only an hour if your chicken is thawed) at 350*.
I cover the pan with tin foil for an easy clean up
I make the salads with whatever toppings we have or feel like. Last night I added broccoli and green peppers for more veggies. It’s yummy and super easy. You could make it more healthy by not using cheese or Ranch dressing and using a vinaigrette instead.
And because I had a salad for dinner, I get to have cookie dough ice cream and brownies for dessert. I follow the 80/20 rule, 80% healthy 20% whatever I want;)
