three things thursday

1. Okay, I might have overreacted a tiny bit.  There are still some small twinges in my knee, but it's healing.  I think I might have just strained my quad a tiny bit on Saturday.  Whew.  Note to self: calm the eff down.


2. I got a chance to try out my fancy-pants new trainer.  I think I set the resistance too high, because after 30 minutes I was drowning in sweat (normal) and exhausted (not normal).  But it's still so much better than the recumbent bike at the gym.  And SO MUCH BETTER than 44ยบ and super windy. 
Hello, beautiful!

3. I've done a few cooking experiments lately with varying degrees of success.  The spicy Thai tempeh with green beans was meh.  Taste was good, but I think tempeh is not for me.
But the first lasagna of the season was delicious!
The caramelized onions-gorgonzola-arugula flatbread pizza needs a little tweaking - onions overcooked, and not enough arugula.
But the chewy brownies with mini chocolate chips and pink vanilla frosting and sprinkles were amazing (ate them before they could be photographed).  Happy Thursday!

  1. Yum on all that food! Glad you got a good trainer--it does sound like you need to turn down that resistance!
