HAPPY FRIDAY! Today is our rest day and since pretty much every muscle group is sore right now, I'd say it's much needed. Remember, your muscles don't grow in the gym, they grow when you rest. I hate rest days just as much as the next person, but I know they do my body much more good than harm so I make sure to get in at least 1 full day, if not 2. Another way to grow those muscles? Eat!
This is what dinner looked like last night- simple and quick but spicy and so good. Since we're in the middle of deathly hot weather here in AZ the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven, so I've been trying to do my best to grill as often as possible.
Last night I skewered some shrimp after marinating them in a mixture of Sriacha, ginger, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder (didn't measure). For sides we did roasted veggies and grilled avocado and everything went together perfectly, and I think it took me all of 30 minutes from start to finish. Excited for leftovers today!
Don't forget today is the last day to enter my Quest Bar giveaway!
What's your rest day regimen? Do you love them or hate them?
