New Years Boot Camp

I've talked before about how much I loved the boot camp I did last summer with SassyFit! They are offering a 6 sessions (2x per week for 3 weeks) of booty-kicking workouts starting on Monday...I'm super excited! I been working out, but I can't wait to get back to the boot camp style workout...I LOVE it! Plus I talked a friend into signing up, so it will be extra fun working out with her! The 6-week program also includes a giftcard to a local coffee shop across the street...score! I am planning to blog about my experience and maybe include a sweaty photo after each workout;)

The only thing that worries me is getting to the class by 6 am...yikes! However, I did get up at 6:15 for 30 minutes on the treadmill and I am very proud of myself! I took the day off from working out last night (felt weird), and I am meeting friend at happy hour after work, so I am proud that I managed to fit in my workout this morning. It was a little tough getting into it, and I did a lot more walking than normal, but I'm glad I did it!

More good eats:

Vegetable Stir Fry over Quinoa:

Plum Tomatoes
Extra virgin olive oil

I started the quinoa according to package directions.

I boiled the broccolini for a bit and fried the cut up portabella first (fired until soft, about 5-7 min). Then I added the boiled broccolini, and after a couple minutes the tomatoes...fried until tomatoes were softened.

Sweet Potato Fries

1 medium sweet potato cut into strips
1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper
Trader Joe's 21 seasoning salute (best seasoning EVER!)

Combined all ingredients and baked on a baking sheet at 400 for 30 min or until crispy. Shook them up half way through.

Cleaning up a Messy Kitchen...

who am I kidding, I posted this because I though my arms looks fab!!! (could be the lighting and camera angle...or yoga?, but I'll take it!)

Excited about meeting my goal to cook new and interesting meals all week!

This weekend I am planning on running 3 miles and yoga on Saturday. Then I am meeting the girls to see It's Complicated, followed by sushi! I love hanging with the girls!

Sunday, I am volunteering at UW from 10-2 (I'm an advisor for my sorority there.) I may or may not squeeze in an am run. Then I have yoga plans at 4. Finally, I am going to make another weekly menu and get the groceries I will need for the week...and cook another lovely meal of course!


  1. Love the honesty about the picture! BTW your arms do look fabulous :-)

  2. I've got the same goal as you, two new meals (that are interesting and somewhat unique, and easy, and cheap!) each week.

    I love quinoa, but have yet to have Nick try it. It's expensive and I am afraid to buy it in case he doesn't like it!! I should just take the plunge. Mmm, and we LOVE sweet potato fries!

  3. you know I have a few weeks until my next training starts, bootcamp really would be perfect. thanks for the inspiriation!

  4. Can't wait to hear about the bootcamp - I thought about this but 6am - yikes! What sorority were you in?
