Well, it’s been snowing here in Chicagoland since about 5am. We’re expected to get 8 to 12 inches of snow. Great. I thought Spring was supposed to be coming?
Our school district was one of the few that didn’t cancel school today, so the kids were kind of bummed to not have a snow day. Jaden still had fun playing in the snow while waiting for the bus and brushing off my car.
I guess we’re used to snow here in Illinois.
After I made sure Jaden got on the bus safely, I headed to the gym. I started off with my plank-a-day #5 challenge. I held it for 2 minutes and 37 seconds today.
It was tough. I’m trying to hold it longer each day, even if it’s only by a second, and now I’m kind of wishing that I would have done a shorter plank the first day!
Danny is progressively getting better at his plank too. His time yesterday was 1 minute and 45 seconds.
- Plank 2:37
- Elliptical – 15 minutes
- Butts and Guts class – 60 minutes
- 2.04 miles treadmill, walked and jogged
There was two of us in Butts and Guts class today. That is all.
Post workout, I had a vanilla Greek yogurt with some delicious PB2 mixed in. I wonder of I could freeze it and eat it like frozen yogurt?
I also stopped at the store to pick up a few things for dinner since I’m sure we’ll be snowed in tonight. I decided to take out the crock pot and make something super simple – shredded chicken and gravy over biscuits.
You only need three ingredients – chicken, gravy, and biscuits.
I bought the skinless, boneless tenderloins because they were on sale. I cook them in the crock pot with a bit of water for 5-6 hours on low. Then, I shred the chicken, add the gravy, and cook for an additional 30 minutes.
Serve the chicken and gravy over biscuits and you’re done! Easy, simple, and good! (Don’t worry, I’ll add some kind of vegetable in there too )
- What’s your easy, go-to dinner?
- Have you ever frozen Greek yogurt? Good?
- What’s your weather like? Any snow?
