But in the good way. I can’t believe it took me almost 2 months to join a gym again after moving!! Luckily I was still running, taking dance class, and using my dumbbells at home.
However, as the cold weather moves in and it now is completely dark by the time I leave work (hate that!), I knew my outdoor running days were dwindling (what can I say…I’m not hard core enough to run when its freezing out!).
After much thought, I broke down and joined the brand new Boston Sports Club near my house! I’ve always joined the “cheaper” gyms, and for once I just really wanted a nice gym that I wouldn’t mind actually showering at haha. In the end it wasn’t as much as I expected (yay!), AND my good friend joined too!! So far having a gym buddy is AWESOME. Much harder to bail.
Last Thursday I did Body Pump…awesome class!! What a great way to get all your muscle groups done in 1 hour! Plus I definitely pushed myself harder in class than I would if I was just lifting on my own. I was feeling it all weekend. Tonight I did Body Combat…holy workout!!! That class kicked my butt, and I’m already sore…esp in my arms. It feels SO great to be back to a steady workout schedule.
Back to last Thursday. I told Brian I’d be at this class and sort of jokingly (but not) said how great it would be to have dinner ready when I got home. Well, that night I came home to this scene:
- hand blender in hand
- wine on the counter
- fish on the counter
- cookbook in the cookbook stand
- and it smelt delicious!
He rifled through the cookbooks and decided on this:
A Provence-Style Fish Stew from this Williams Sonoma “Soup” cookbook I have, that I don’t even think I’ve ever used!
It was basically a stew with: onions, garlic, carrot, fennel, fish stock, red wine, canned tomatoes, and fish! (he used Cod).
Fresh FRESH French bread…
A few minutes later…dinner served!
