Here we are at the last work Monday of 2011. Nothing really changed work wise. I am still super busy and it doesn't look like it is going to ease off before Christmas.
Today I was keen to get some good lifting in as I knew that I was having Tuesday off to finish off some Christmas errands and do some admin type work at home. I checked my workout log and found some arm exercises that I could get stuck into.
12mins cross trainer, warm up, level 14
Narrow push ups
Tricep press with 12kg
Tricep push down with 21kg
BB bench press with 12kg
Incline DB curl with 8kg
Alternating DB curl with 10kg
3 x planks for 1min
Once again the train was delayed at my stop after work so I had to wait 20mins in the freezing cold on the open platform. Brrr. However, it is so worth it knowing I am coming home to my boys Ryan, Oscar and Riley.
For dinner we prepared some salmon with a honey soy glaze.
In a small fry pan I cut up some fresh broccoli and brown onion, then seasoned with light soy sauce.
For the fries, I cut up some sweet potato into chip type portions, sprinkled with garlic, salt and pepper and put into the oven to cook. The fries take the longest at around 25-35mins. I like mine crispy and a little bit burnt around the edges.
When the sweet potato was starting to look like it was done (and taste like it was done) - I made up some honey soy seasoning, poured over the salmon and baked in foil in the oven for around 10-12mins.
It was oh so tasty and I am pretty sure it got the seal of approval from Ryan as well ;)
I love preparing salmon as it is very easy. All I do is mix up some kind of sauce/glaze and then bake in the oven. Once you plate your dinner up, just pour the juices over the salmon again and it is done.
