What do you do when you can’t run? You cross train. hip hip hooray for cross-training.
My knee wasn’t bothering me today but I thought an extra day off from running wouldn’t hurt. I came home and popped in a Bob Harper weight workout DVD. I’ve mentioned his work out before, it’s one of my favorite DVD’s. He has a short 20 minute version, and then there is an hour long version. I haven’t ventured to the hour long yet. I have to work on my upper body strength some more. The 20 minute video has me screaming for mercy! My poor little arms.

For dinner tonight I made another super simple pasta recipe. Pretty similar to the one I made last week, only a slight variation. I love pasta- I could eat it for every single meal. I know a lot of people don’t like pasta because of the carbs, gluten etc, etc.. whatever. I love it.
Tri-color rotini, sausage & veggie mix
16oz box of rotini ( this obviously depends on how many you are feeding. I feed Chris & my Dad)
broccoli – I think I cut up three stalks
1 green pepper – diced/sliced/chopped
1/2 red pepper – diced/sliced/chopped
1/2 onion – sliced
a little water
garlic powder (to taste)
1. saute the veggies in olive oil & water. ( I started with olive oil, but it wasn’t enough so I added some water instead of more olive oil)
2. when the veggies are about done add the sausage and let it cook
3. put rotini on to boil
4. drain rotini- You could mix the veggies/pasta together or keep them separate. – We put some pasta in a bowl and then put veggies on top. Splash with some italian dressing and dig in. YUM
Once again, this is soo super simple. It takes a little longer than the other pasta dish because the veggies take longer to saute, but it’s still really simple.
I had a brilliant idea. brilliant I tell you.

Go check out my new About Me. Every source that offers advice on blogging says that you should have an about me. I like reading other people’s about me, but I writing my own has always been a struggle. I just think it’s a better idea to read the blog rather than base judgments off the About Me.
