Food Blogging was fun. I like food. I like reading other food blogs. I like getting ideas for new recipes, finding out about new products and it was fun to participate. But, I’m finding that I just can’t keep up with a daily food blog at the moment. I’m not saying never again, but for now it’s just not working for me.
That doesn’t mean that I won’t still post food pictures sometimes…
Like this Red Thai Curry that Husband and I made on the weekend for example.
Really not difficult to do, and oh so good. In that bowl there was chicken, sweet potatoes, red bell peppers in a coconut milk based red curry sauce, served over Jasmine Rice. Leads to much contented-ness in the JavaChick household.
And, of course, I will be keeping up with my workouts…
Like the Tabata Intervals that I really didn’t want to do today. I kept puttering around, finding little things to do, putting off getting started which was silly. The faster you get started, the faster you’re through, right?
But at least I was well organized with my GymBoss to time the intervals, and my spare kitchen timer to time my rest periods.
I have to say, the GymBoss is a helpful little gadget. I’ve used it for other workouts, but today was the first time I used it to set up two intervals – 20 seconds of an exercise then 10 seconds of rest. That interval was used for 8 sets of an exercise, then I would rest for 1 minute, then move on to 8 sets of the next exercise.
After my Tabata Intervals, I did 25 minutes of Steady State Cardio. I decided to save Abs for tomorrow.
As for the rest of whatever spare time I can find…For as long as I can remember I have wanted to take piano lessons. I finally have a piano again, and now I’m finally taking lessons. I’ve had two so far. The first lesson there was a lot of skipping through the book to figure out where to start. As far as musical notes go, I read piano music fairly well. But I’ve never learned any of the theory, never learned proper fingering technique, so there are definitely things for me to learn. So far, I feel like the lessons I’ve had are helping me to focus my practicing which is good.
Don’t worry though, garden season will get here eventually, then I’ll be back with pictures of [cats in] the garden .
