June is always a busy month - extra busy I should say. Brady started weight lifting class early this morning at school at 7:30 and after that he has shooting camp until noon. Besides that going on this week, he has 4 baseball games. Aiden has 2 tball games. Neil is still busy trying to get the fields planted. And Summer is finally here! I actually slept on the sofa downstairs last night because the bedroom upstairs was too warm. Think it's finally time to turn on the central air. Just a few weeks ago I was wearing my Ugg boots to a baseball game!
This week's exercise plan is as follows:
Monday - home gym, legs on Bowflex.
Tuesday-Friday are at the gym with the ladies:
Tues: Back and Biceps, 16 minute tabatas
Wed: Chest and Tri's, 20 minutes elliptical
Thurs: Shoulder/Abs, 16 minutes tabatas
Friday: Lower body
Skewered Shrimp with Black Bean-Lemon Rice
Whisk marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture in a separate bowl and set aside. Place shrimp in a resealable plastic bag, pour marinade over shrimp, seal tightly and coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes, turning frequently.
Remove shrimp from marinade (reserving marinade). Place shrimp on skewers, alternating with the tomatoes, chilies, and onions (folded in half).
Preheat grill on high heat. Brush skewers with reserved marinade and cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until shrimp are opaque in center.
Place the remaining marinade in a small saucepan on the grill to heat slightly. Toss the rice with the black beans, cilantro, and lemon zest.
To serve, top rice with skewers and spoon the remaining marinade over skewers.
This week I turn 41. Yikes. Enuf said!
