Oh, if only the camera did a better job at showing the bruises all over my arms you could all feel my pain. Ha! Molly and I hung pretty well with the boys in the backyard crossfit/farm boy workout on Saturday. Let me tell you though, flipping a 125 pound tractor tire is no joke when you hit the 5th set. Holy cow. There were tire flips, jumps through the tire (or leaping in my case since I don’t have jumping coordination), pounding the tire with a sledgehammer, pushups, farmer carries with a 53 pound kettle bell and medicine ball throws. I can’t wait for the next one in two weeks. We are going to add a few more stations so there is less down time between sets and hopefully get some more people to join us as well. It should be a rocking good time. And does anyone know where I could find a battle rope or agility ladder? Would love to add those stations!
I wanted to share the turkey recipe that I’ve been using since my return from Biggest Loser Resort. It’s been cause of some serious drooling from my co-workers during lunch time. You can eat this a variety of ways. Patty it up for a burger, bake it in a pan for meatloaf, roll it into meatballs and add marina for a meatball sandwich, brown and mix into a box of fiber gourmet mac and cheese...get creative!! I make this recipe but I do not include the rice all the time. I’ve found at our house the favorite way to eat this is over brown rice. So I make the recipe without the rice in it, then mix it with brown rice, a tablespoon of feta cheese and some Sweet Baby Ray’s sweet and spicy barbeque sauce for a delicious, healthy and filling meal. Some days I add the sundried tomatoes and some I don’t. Make sure if you do, you chop them up REALLY well, like in a food processor. If you can think of other ways to use this make sure to share!
My phillyburbs article is up for the reading. Haven’t gotten the web link to Q Magazine yet but I promise to share as soon as I do. Have a super Monday!
