30 Days Fitness Challenge + Chicken & Asparagus

As I announced on my Facebook page, I started a 30 days fitness challenge - 2 days down / 28 to go!!


via Pinterest  

I want to finally lose those few overweight pounds I seem to never manage to get rid of!

I have never loved sports very much although I used to go to the gym (now and then) or play other sports, but I always wanted to follow an healthy routine with exercises.

I like this combination of cardio and exercises I am following, I feel they are working on me already! Hopefully I will maintain a nice routine after the challenge is over - so far so good ;)

The challenge focuses as well on food and I am trying to be a good girl and am not drinking alcohol or any coke/soda (chocolate will be hard to eliminate tho)...Tonight I have prepared an healthy and delicious plate: chicken with asparagus!







I don't want to be starving during this 30 days so I will simply stick with healthy food and normal portions!

What you need

Serving 2 people

500 gr Asparagus
250 gr Chicken breasts (sliced)
1/2 small onion
1 table spoon olive oil
1 table spoon lemon juice
1 tea spoon light soy sauce
almonds
salt, black and white pepper

Proceedings

Cut the asparagus and boil them for 10 minutes (if you don't like tender asparagus 7 minutes is enough).  In a pan, add the olive oil and, when it is heating, the sliced 1/2 onion.

When you see that the onion is golden, add the chicken slices and cook until they are almost done.

Add the cooked asparagus and stir everything together with salt, lemon juice and light soy sauce. 

Finally, add a handful of almonds ( fyi: I have small hands) and season with white and black pepper.


..Like a Rolling Stone..
Enjoy!

Until next time,
Daniela
