Today’s 44 was fun even though I look like a total dork!!! I did a roundhouse with a back fist.
I did all 44 on my right side and then switched to the left for another set. This got my heart rate up and worked my butt and core!!!
I didn’t do Michelle Bridges today – I’m going to keep doing the program but not 6 days a week – it is too hard to balance those workouts with my running so I’m going to mix them in a little differently this week and see how it goes.
We decided that we should have a Russian meal to celebrate the host country of these Olympic games. Good thing we have such a great resource with the internet!!!
For the main dish I made cabbage rolls (in the crock pot!!) – I used ground beef and brown rice as the filler. The boys liked this – I think next time I won’t boil that cabbage first since it cooked even more in the crock pot.
As a side dish, we made zucchini pancakes. This is the first time that I’ve ever tried a savory pancake and these were really good!!! Might have to make them again!!!
And, I’ve said many times that I don’t bake but I felt like a Russian meal wouldn’t be complete without Russian Tea Cakes. Surprisingly, these came out OK!!!
Of course, since we had a Russian meal there had to be a bit of Vodka! We weren’t going to do straight vodka shots though!!!
Can’t do the Russian thing without a bit of Vodka even if it is in the form of chocolate cake!!!
(no vodka for the boys!!)
Hunter decided to make a sandwich with a couple of the pancakes and his cabbage roll-up.
This was a fun way to “travel” to Russia and also to try some new (to us) dishes!!!
Did you watch the Opening Ceremony Friday night?
Summer or winter Olympics?
