Weekend Workouts and Recipes

Sometimes my ambition gets the best of me…

I think, yea I can totally do that 10 mile run after working an 11 hour day at my desk or I sooo have time to make a complete home cooked meal with fresh bread even if I don’t get home until 8:30PM.

Most of those nights I end up exhausted and in tears! Lately I have had a better handle on my week night ambition. Some workouts and recipes are just made for the weekend! With that in mind I plan to have an awesome weekend with long workouts and some new recipe creations. Here is my plan!

Saturday: Insanity Plyometric Workout, Zumba (AKA Dance Party)

Sunday: Insanity Workout, Intermural Football Game

On the recipe home front I plan to make homemade condensed almond milk! I am very excited to try this out. I can only imagine how good this will taste in brown rice porridges or oatmeal!


I also have been slacking my on bread baking. I admit that I’ve been taking the easy way out and buying fresh local bread but this weekend I want to tackle sugar-free 9 grain bread. I think I will use a mix of the lessons I learned baking whole wheat bread at Le Pain Quotidian and ingredients that are in my easy Irish Soda Bread.


My third cooking goal is to make ginger chews. This one is going to be tougher since there are no recipes for ginger chews anywhere that I can find. Lets hope it doesn’t end up at too much of a recipe fail!

Do you ever work yourself to death trying to get everything done? What have you done to try to fix the problem?

    I’ve been “working myself to death” for as long as I can remember and it’s definitely caught up with me recently. I’m starting to (for my own health) try to get things under control and take some things off of my plate. Take care of yourself — nights ending in tears are no good!

      I love having things going on but its nice to take a step back and realize that I’ve got to many things going on. Especially with our running schedules!

  3. My hubs always tell me to slow down when I try to do everything at once…and I just look at him and say, “Seriously?!” But, I guess that’s what is best. The bread looks amazing…you can toss one over here– I’ll catch it!

  4. I am always wearing myself too thin. It really starts to get to me after a while, so I really try and slow down before I get burned out, but sometimes the the burnout happens before I realize I should have taken it easy! I have am slowly learning to listen to my body.
    I also LOVE the INSANITY videos!!!! :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by… I found I couldn’t juggle everything – work, cycling, gym and studying – so this time, I am aiming for a bit more balance. Cooking on the weekend has always facilitated weeknight eating, though. :)
