Is Superwoman real?

I sure felt like it tonight! 

Bryan and I both got home around 6:30pm, worked out to our first night of P90X, I made dinner (recipe to follow at the end of this blog), washed dishes, folded laundry, AND made our lunches for tomorrow? 

Oh, she's real all right and her name is Amanda Moury! Well, for tonight at least.

On top of my usual things I do to keep our apartment in a livable state, the husband and I have decided to start eating better and exercising together. This includes P90X, which by the way kicked my butt tonight and it's only night one!) and making our lunches for the next day so neither of us are resorting to fast food for lunches during our work day. 

It feels so good to feel so accomplished, but I also really want to make sure that this is something that I follow through with. I feel like I've made so many empty goals, especially about weight. For once I just want to finish something I start, I think it would be even more special that because it's something Bryan and I are doing together.

I'll continue to update on my status on how it's  - working out - pun intended :)
So here is the recipe I made tonight with wild rice, and got rave reviews! 
(Recipe is courtesy of

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken
-3/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp black pepper
-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
-1/8 tsp paprika
-1/4 tsp garlic powder
-1/8 tsp onion powder
-1/4 tsp dried thyme
-1/4 tsp dried parsley
-4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts (I prefer the thin cut ones you can get at Safeway)

-1 TBSP butter (I omitted this but it calls for it)
-drizzle of EVOO
-2 tsp garlic powder
-3 TBSP lime juice

1. In a small bowl mix together the salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, and dried parsley. Rub the mixture on each side of the chicken breasts.
2. Heat the butter and EVOO in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about six minutes on each side. Sprinkle garlic powder and squeeze the juice of a lime on each side of the chicken and continue saute until it's cooked through and the juices run clear.

Like I said, I served with some wild rice and it was delish! Hope you enjoy this as much as we did! And just like the title says - it's spicy! So you've got to like some kick with chicken :)
