2 huge workouts - 2 huge meals!

Got up early this morning.... did a couple of hours of work and then biked to Dell's 9:00 am Dance / Stretch exercise class at Anytime Fitness.

Don't let the name Dance & Stretch fool you - this is a strenuous body weight only workout with extreme range of motion stretching and a lot of movement in a full flexed leg position.  You try maintaining a deep wide stance squat for a minute straight while stretching your arms over your head and side to side.  It's something that everybody should do.  As Dell emphasizes during the workout.... These are excellent Anti-Aging movements. I have to agree.

Cycled back to the condo and was famished so broke out the big cast iron skillet and filled it with all kind of wonderful veggies.  Smoking hot skillet - NO OIL! This is a dry saute'.

With the lean ground beef - veggie mix, some Tuscan Kale and 3 eggs kicked up with Soy and Balsamic standing by....

Add the kale to the sauted veggies.

Then make room on one side of the skillet for a healthy big patty of the ground beef mix.

Once the ground beef is grilled on one side, mix everything together.

Cut off the heat and add the beaten egg - soy sauce - balsamic mix....

Mix in the egg mixture well and then cover.

The residual heat in the food and the skillet with the cover on will cook the egg in about 3 minutes.

While the egg is cooking, let's do the clean-up.

Yep, by the time the cooking is done, the clean-up is done.

Everything you see done in this series of photos from beginning to end including the cleanup took less than 15 minutes!!!

There's the final product.

Lots of veggies, lots of protein, tons of flavor, color and texture.

Sided with a Creatine - Chocolate Protein Mix drink for another 30g of protein.

That's a meal that will help you recover from any workout.

A 5.5 mile bike ride got me to the 5:45 pm Praxis workout.  

Remember the Grand Opening for Praxis is this Saturday 11:30 AM - 2:00 PM!

Pretty simple workout right?

I guess the age is starting to kick in because I seem to be pulling up the rear in almost every workout.

3 minutes behind the previous slowest person.... What can I say?

I  just can't seem to breathe.  Whether it's the elevation or a heart / lungs problem or just old age I don't know but I was max'd out during the whole 18 minutes of the WOD.

Oh well - at least I finished.

And by the time I pedaled the 5.5 miles back up the hill to the north side of Santa Fe, I was just about dead.

Mark Martinez, the Praxis trainer for the 5:45 session asked me what I was fixing for supper.....

That's a whole purple heirloom carrot sliced with a potato peeler, the last of the kale on the left and TJ's Sweet Basil Chicken and Turkey sausage in the back.

Everybody in the pool

Add a good portion of the lean ground beef mix and 2 slices of tofu marinated in soy sauce and balsamic.

Garnish with fresh basil and sweet onion and pair with a glass of TJ's Coastal Cabernet.

How's that Mark?

So an extreme stretch - yoga workout, 4 hours of work, a short nap,  a kick ass Praxis workout, 17 miles of bike riding, 2 platters of Paleo and 1 day done.

This is the kind of day that makes you feel.....

  1. When I try and dry sauté they always end up blackened and tasting like the cast iron. I have to add a medium like some olive oil or something to keep them from sticking.
