So Core Syn was much better today! I must have been tired the other day. It is also much easier when you've seen the moves before. I actually did the push ups on my hands and feet the whole time, and they are getting much better! It's so exciting!
I also put my workouts for next week into my calendar. I figure if they aren't appointments, it'll be easier to push them off to later in the day. School will get busier too and I'll have to schedule group meetings, so I'm happy to have the workouts on my calendar. I must be INSANE because I've penciled in Cardio X because I want to try out Doubles. Mostly it's because I want to throw in a run here and there. On days when it's nice or a friend invites me on a run, I'll substitute that for Cardio X. I have a meeting for the alumni association of my undergraduate university next Saturday, so I'm actually switching my Saturday and Sunday workouts because I'll have more time for doubles on Sunday. I'm excited to try it out and see if I can handle it.
Also, here's a recipe I recently tried (since I said I'd put recipes I like on here). I saw it in a magazine, but I changed it slightly based on what types of things I like. It's for onion soup. Onions are cheaper than most produce right now, but it can be hard to figure out what to do with them especially in a featured role. So here it is!
1 T oil (I use canola for the good fats)
2 cups of thinly sliced/chopped onions
1.5 cups broth (I use beef broth)
0.5 cup sherry or some other cooking wine
thyme (dried or fresh) to taste
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
Saute the onions in oil until they are really soft. It should take about 20 minutes, but it doesn't need to be watched over constantly. Once they are soft, add in the cooking wine. Stir the onions and wine until the wine cooks off and the mixture is a little syrupy. Add in the broth, bay leaf, and thyme. Simmer for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
