Lately life has been especially busy around here.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to start going to the gym before work instead of after. While it sounds easy enough in theory, it means waking up at 4 am every morning to squeeze in a quick workout before leaving for work at 6:30.
And while I used to think that the only people at the gym at 4:00 in the morning were those with some kind of mental illness, I have to admit that it’s made it a lot easier for me to actually start going every day.
It changed my schedule quite a bit, though. Waking up crazy early means that I have to go to bed super early to avoid walking around like a zombie the next day. It also means that I can’t have dinner at absurdly late hours of the night like I was used to (hey, they do it in Spain!).
Quick and easy meals have pretty much become a necessity for me. On the weekends, I like to spend the extra time making more complex meals that require a bit more effort. During the week, I’ve become all about getting in and out of the kitchen as fast as possible.
