I've been such a bad blogger!
But, thankfully not so bad at cooking. Thursday for dinner I made Mango-Pork Fried Rice. The theme of this meal was "last minute-ness" and you'll see why. First I had to chop up and peel the mango - but somehow I couldn't find my peeler. It's kind of a crappy peeler anyway, so that need to go on the shopping list! So, I just used a knife to separate the skin from the fruit.
Just so you know, on Thursday I DID make it to yoga! I definitely have to speed walk to get there, but it was worth it! This "beginner" class doesn't seem too beginner to me, but I really enjoyed all of the poses, even if I fell over multiple times.
Friday night for dinner I made Peppery Cajun Pork Pasta. I substituted spaghetti for the fettuccine because it was what was in the pantry, and got to work! I LOVE Cajun seasoning so I probably put way into this dish than called for - oh well! I started by cooking my pork - which I have to brag - came out just right again! Not too dry, which is what I always fear!
This morning, M and I went for a 3 mile run. Somewhere during the 3rd mile my ankles started really hurting and I had to take a walk break. I told her to go ahead, and walked for three minutes before I made myself push for the last little part! My overall time was 33:12 - an 11:04 pace even with the walking! So, I know we were definitely going fast (well, fast for us) at least part of the time! I hope my ankles don't hurt in the morning - I've been trying to stretch and ice today! I'm not sure what made them act up - is pushing myself to go faster correlated with pain in my feet? Or perhaps the hills? Lack of stretching on Thursday? Who knows! But I will say that after eating breakfast first, I felt much better cardio-wise during the run. It was obviously still hard and I was tired, but I wasn't feeling quite as sluggish. Then, after running, two of our friends met up with us in the gardens and one of them led us in yoga! It was a great way to calm down and stretch out after running.
I have cooked since Friday, but I'm saving it for my next post! I'm doing something special this week - I hope you are excited to hear about it!
