Love these short weeks - we're halfway through already!! Hope you're having a good one. Last night, I took this recipe for Asian Turkey Burgers and turned it into meatballs! I simply rolled the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls and placed them on a sprayed baking sheet. I cooked them at 350 for approximately 20-25 minutes (make sure they're cooked through). I put the meatballs over a little pasta and steamed veggies topped with a little stir fry sauce and some sesame seeds (note: I was inspired to make the burger recipe into meatballs after seeing this post on Dishing up Delights).
A few of you asked me to talk a little bit more about my weekly workouts. I try to switch up my workouts because I think our bodies and minds get bored/are more likely to hit plateaus if we're always completing the same exercises. Here is a typical week of workouts:
Monday: Run ~ 6 miles, ab work (10-15 minutes), stretch Tuesday: Teach 1 hour Body Attack class ( cardio, upper & lower body conditioning, abs, stretch) Wednesday: Take 1 hour Body Pump class (weights) Thursdays: Lighter workout- shorter run or walk (or off if I'm dragging) Friday: Teach 1 hour Body Attack class Saturday: Teach 1 hour Body Step class ( cardio, lower body conditioning, abs, stretch) Sunday: Off
I think having a day or two off every week is important! I also think you should LISTEN to your body. PUSH yourself in your workouts, don't just go through the motions. BUT don't push through pain- either take it easier or take a day off. Drink lots of water and fuel your body with healthy foods :) Any questions? Hopefully this was helpful! Different things work for different people, so find what works for YOU!
