The good: I managed to get in an a.m. workout - I did a 1/4 mile walk, 1 mile run at 6.3 mph, 1/4 mile walk and then 10 minutes on stair climber. HRM said: 29 minutes, 200 calories, 12 fat-burning minutes, 17 fitness minutes, HR 141, max HR 180.
The bad: During my last minute on the stair climber I began to feel lightheaded and my vision kind of blurred. GRRR. This never happens. I think it was a combination of not enough water and not enough sleep - just kind of started crashing - totally freaked me out. I sat down though for a minute and felt 99% better. Scare bear though - has this ever happened to you?
The good: I didn't forget any of my workout stuff - woo!
The bad: I forgot my iPhone. boo - no music.
The good: I got in a workout at lunch - 3.5 mile walk with Stacy! Great to catch up with her and get a walk in.
The bad: I had TONS of work to do and ended up working until 7 and not home until 7:30 - boo.
The good: I came home to a wonderful new recipe, a great family, perfect, cuddly little poodles and your blogs - still playing catch up but enjoying see what you all have been up to. Great end to a good (and bad) day!

Yes - another Asian-inspired winner! The cornstarch made the chicken so thick and juicy - loved that addition, and the sauce got just thick enough to cover the rice and give each bite the sauce's unique flavor- which was citrusy and spicy. I love this recipe and will absolutely make it again. I think it would taste great over an Asian salad too rather than rice! The recipe is over at Healthified Kitchen as usual!
