I like to think of myself as an intrinsically motivated person. I like to think that, when it comes to my fitness, I get up early three times a week because that’s what needs to be done for me to take care of myself – to make me a healthy person.
Last Thursday marked the shortest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere – the winter solstice. From now on, every morning will be just that little bit lighter. The cold will stick around for a while, but there is now the promise of summer on the horizon.
We actually managed to get out and about this weekend and enjoy some sunshine. Hannah was just thrilled to finally be allowed outside of the house. We visited a beautiful park, but I forgot to take my camera. Instead, I’m back on the food photos. This is from tonight’s dinner – Chicken, peppers and basil tray bake.
The recipe for this tasty dish comes from the wonderful Adam Liaw. We have made it a couple of times, and each time it has been delicious! It’s dead simple too – Chicken (thigh on the bone with skin), capsicum, onion, seasoning and some basil are the main things you need. Fry it in a pan, bang it in the oven and about half an hour later you have a tasty dinner.
It’s cold outside! It’s also raining and Hannah has managed to pick up yet another cold. We aren’t venturing out of the house, so there’s only one thing to do – cook something delicious! This week’s My Sunday Photo is part photography, part World’s Worst Food Blog! It’s all about ribs.
I enjoy running.
This is a relatively new development, but I would hesitate calling it a fad. I have certainly stuck with it longer than any other exercise regime I have ever attempted. I enjoy it because it makes me feel good, because I’m reasonably good at it, and because it is easy to get into – no expensive gym membership required.
