After The Pen
Welcome to my home gym . . . or something.
All that is required for 80 Day Obsession is a mat, weights, stretchy bands & sliders (search “bands & sliders” on amazon and you get many options), PLUS something to watch it on (laptop or tablet) and a printout of the tracker sheets (to track your weights/band levels). My weights are 5 lb – 25 lb. This range has been good enough for 80DO. I would love to eventually also get some heavier weights and some weights between 15 and 25 lb (ie, 17.5 and 20 lb weights).
This picture was taken on Sunday, because on the weekdays when I do my workout it is usually dark!
I do not have any secrets as to why the kids do not wake up, but I definitely keep the volume low and they all have noise machines. So, there you have it! My little workout studio.
Weekend cooking (& eating)
Takeout night was pizza (YUM).
Last night I made this and ALL 3 KIDS LOVED IT. It’s in the (much beloved) Dinner Illustrated cookbook and the recipe called for black rice, but I knew that risk would not be worth it from a kid-friendliness perspective 🙂
Roasted salmon (10 min in a 500 degree oven) + cucumbers + radishes + avocado + scallions + seaweed with a dressing that had miso/rice vinegar/mirin/ginger/lime. Zero kid complaints and I personally loved this meal, so I WIN.
Banana bread happened after dinner! I used the Kitchn recipe that Gwinne recommended (b/c I was making it with Cameron and the recipe claimed to be the easiest possible — and it was pretty easy) and we added chocolate chips. We all ate a slice for dessert and I admit I am already excited to have some for breakfast.
I am pretty much ready (weekly goals / lists & all!) so . . . here goes a new week.
