If anybody was wondering whether you work your leg muscles in Pilates or not, you do.
Nothing like being sore from running to let you know what muscles you use 🙂
The Pilates class I take is usually the same thing every week. I figured I’d go tonight just to get the blood flowing, and I could use the beginner modifications if I needed to.
Well, of course this happened to be the class with NO beginners, so the instructor decided it was time for some advanced moves! Of course. Haha. I had to make some modifications for my feet, but I did pretty well overall. We’ll see if I pay for it tomorrow though…
I’ve been pretty hungry since yesterday, so I wanted a dinner that was going to be filling. I opted for brown rice with chicken, peppers, and pineapple!
1/2 cup short grain brown rice
1 cup water (or broth)
2 chicken breasts
1 yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
4 slices pineapple
Combine rice & water and bring to a boil. Cook until water is absorbed (~30 minutes for me). Chop peppers & onions. Place on baking sheet with pineapple and roast at low heat while rice cooks. Slice chicken and marinate in adobo sauce for a few minutes. Sauté over medium high heat until cooked through.
Coat veggies with jerk sauce, then serve with rice & chicken. Top with basil.
I love cooked pineapple- especially grilled….so delicious!
It was fantastic! It didn’t fill me up though- now I’m eating a bowl of cereal 🙂
