Squash and swimming

Well I got back in the pool. I know, so proud of me too. I went after work and it wasn’t crowded one bit. I jumped in and started doing laps. I’m not gonna lie, I still have a pretty mean crawl stroke. It’s tiring though and my eyes were so red from the chlorine. Must. get. goggles. The person there said it was a 14 yard pool (is that right?) and so I did 12 round trip laps. I’m still super sore from my workout sesh Tuesday, so the pool was perfect for me.

When I got home, I cooked up the squash I had gotten from my local farmer’s market. I diced it up and sauteed it, along with 1 big carrot I also had, in EVOO. Once it was starting to get soft I put it over brown rice and added some Newman’s Own lite Sesame Ginger dressing. It was a party in my mouth to say the least. The one-ball squash was very similar to the regular squash, except with a tougher skin.

Today I’m taking a day off from working out, but back to the good ole salad for lunch and I’m going out to sushi tonight. Yum!
