It’s not even real summer yet and our kitchen is already too hot to cook in.
Thank goodness for the grill!
Grilled broccoli? Oh yeah. It was surprisingly good! I really don’t like raw broccoli so I was a little worried that it would be too…raw, but it was just the right amount of crunch.
Twin Oaks herbed tofu is so tasty is doesn’t really need much of a marinade, just a little drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper, and a splash of balsamic.
Nope, we didn’t have dinner guests, all that was for the two of us-dinner last night and lunch at the clinic today.
Speaking of the clinic, a few weeks ago I replaced my desk chair with an exercise ball and it is AWESOME.
I used to get really tense in my shoulders on a regular basis, so tense that I would get killer headaches. Not one bit of achy shoulders since I switched to the ball. My core feels and LOOKS stronger. I sit up straighter. My upper back is stronger from sitting up straight without support. I stand up more because I’m not glued to a desk chair; moving around more keeps me energized and my metabolism humming.
If you sit at a desk for a long period of time I highly recommend giving the ball a try. You will want to start slow, an hour or so at a time, and you may feel some fatigue in your upper back for the first few days.
Bonus: I now keep my Pilates on the Ball dvd in my desk drawer and squeeze in 10 minute workouts between patients!
