Today was Chest, Shoulders & Triceps. This is a pretty intense work out if you want it to be---and today I wanted it to be. I did almost all the push ups the boy-way this time. I had to drop to my knees a couple of times towards the end of the set so I could get a few more reps in. The only one I didn't attempt the "boy-way" on was the clap and one-arm push ups. I'm lucky not to fall on my face on those as it is. Still, I did 10 of each which is a victory for me.
Anyway, eating was not the best today. I felt like I did pretty good until at the end of the night I sat back and really thought about it. During the process of the day I had eaten a lot of healthy food but I also had a slice of pizza and 2 oreos throughout the day. As we all know--that is NOT P90X food nor is it what I should be eating if I want to get down to 125 by summer. So, yet again, I am making promises to myself to be a clean-eater from here on out. No more of that junk in my body. It does nothing for me but add pounds (well and satisfy a craving).
Now...speaking of food, I did have something amazingly fabulously wonderful for dinner tonight that I have to share with you guys! I'm not sure how bad/good it is on the healthy scale but I know it can't be nearly as bad as regular fast-food french fries. Anyway, here is the recipe for Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries. I promise you..my family devoured these before they even made it to the table. Both Matt and I agreed they were the best fries we have ever eaten!
Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries
1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (preferably the easy release kind).
Peal the sweet potatoes. Cut into strips that are about 1/2 inch wide on each side.
Place the sweet potatoes into a sealable plastic bag. Add oil, salt, paprika and cinnamon. Seal the bag and shake well to thoroughly coat the fries. Spread the potatoes out onto the baking sheet in a single layer.
Cook for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Transfer immediately to a paper towel lined plate and serve warm.
