Week 5

Week 5

My sisters and I had this workout video growing up called Teen Steam and Alyssa Milano was the instructor. I highly recommend checking it out on YouTube. It is a classic. She does a workout with her two friends in her bedroom and they wanted to work out their frustrations with their parents, friends, school. I loved it when I was a teenager. It is so weird how I am now the parent that they were complaining about. This dvd reminds me of the grownup version of Teen Steam.

I do the Body Back dvds about three days a week and love them! I love the option of just having to do a 20 minute workout or 60 minutes. The Abs section is my favorite and it makes it very easy to get a quick workout it. Every so often, however, I need a switch. When that happens, I do some Facebook challenges that Jenny sends us. I have a favorite one that I use often. It is nice being able to work out and watch some Real Housewives at the same time. I am hoping this weather will stop being crazy and my boys and I can actually go for good walks and do some exercises outside.

I am proud to say I am turning into a chef! I was going to make Spinach meatballs, but I was missing some ingredients and I really did not want to pack up the boys, defrost the car, and run to Jewel. So I got creative and made a gourmet meal for dinner the other day. I will call them Tacodillas.

I used ground turkey and added tomatoes, onions, peppers, 1 T of chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and onion powder. I then have 100 calorie whole wheat tortillas and I made quesadillas with that taco meat and some cheese. Add some salsa and it was delicious! I know… I should open a restaurant.

On Friday night, we made our own pizza. We used whole wheat pre-made dough, Trader Joe’s fat free sauce, low fat mozzarella, veggies, and added some left over taco meat from the night before. Our pizza didn’t have a lot of sauce on it, not because we don’t like it, but because my 2 year old kept eating the sauce off the pizza dough as we were making it.

He is watching out for me and my health as well.
