Oh. My. God. The Yarn Harlot is coming to Atlanta. My heart started racing when I read this fact on her blog tonight. I felt like I'd done 30 minutes of aerobics. I could not be more thrilled.
Speaking of aerobics, I have been getting up in the morning and exercising! What a great idea for someone who needs desperately to lose weight. I have all these exercise videos that I'm just sick of. So, here's my plan: I have the Digital Cable. On the Cable is "On Demand" - or pay-per-view. There is something called "Free Pass On Demand" - free-per-view. There are exercise videos on there that they change out periodically. There are lots of videos. I shouldn't have to repeat many, if any. I think it's a good plan.
I went to sock class with my knitting group on Sunday at the library. It was very interesting, and challenging. I know I'll eventually get it; but boy, it's definitely not mindless knitting.
Tonight's Dinner Recipe (modified from Fitness Magazine):
Garlic Chicken and Zucchini Pasta
1 cup whole wheat pasta cooked
1/2 cup cooked chicken strips (bought the Perdue strips at Publix) (Fitness Magazine called for shrimp - I don't do seafood.)
1 thinly sliced zucchini (used my box grater)
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Make It: Cook Pasta. Mix hot noodles with remaining ingredients. (I also steamed the zucchini. I don't like my zucchini to make noise when I bite into it.)
It was good. I made a double recipe so I can take it for work tomorrow. I also grated a little parmesan on top of it.
Okay, my pulse rate has returned to normal. Y'all take care.
