Just thought I’d pop in with a quick update of what has been going on lately. I feel like I have so much to share but little time to sit down and post, but here’s a little preview of what’s new and good…
I made a big pan of butternut squash lasagna for dinner on Sunday night and Isaac and I have been eating it over the past few days. Well, to be perfectly honest, it was gone by Wednesday.
I used two recipes for inspiration – the one Gina recommends from Cooking Light and Kath’s Veggie Lasagna. I combined ideas from both and ended up using a no sugar added jarred marinara sauce, oven ready noodles, onions, spinach, butternut squash, fresh mozzarella and cottage cheese instead of ricotta.
You can’t tell from the picture, but it turned out a little on the runny side. I guess the liquid from the veggies did it, but the wateriness didn’t bother us because the taste more than made up for it! I’d definitely make it again – especially since Isaac couldn’t stop talking about how good it was all week.
I haven’t really discussed it, but since finishing up the Body for Life training challenge I’ve been consistently working out but with a less structured plan. Here’s what I’ve been combining into my weekly routine:
Overall, I’ve really enjoyed switching things up and doing different workouts throughout the week. My body seems to be liking the change as well. 🙂 Oh and we also bought something new for the house – an Iron Gym pull up bar.
Isaac has been wanting one for a while and we finally got it from Target last weekend. One of my fitness goals for the past few years has been to do a pull-up and I’m really hoping that this gadget will help me reach that goal. Right now I can do 1 pull-up on the assisted pull-up machine at the gym with 18 lbs of assistance. I’m getting there, but I still have some work to do!
The only door frame that the Iron Gym works on is the one for our guest bathroom, which is downstairs right by the kitchen and backdoor. It’s kind of in the way because guests can’t shut the bathroom door when it’s up, but I think it’s good because it seems Isaac and I will remember to use it more often than if it were hidden upstairs somewhere. We’ll just have to remember to take it down before we have people over. 😉
I’ll keep you all posted on my pull-up challenge… in the meantime, have a wonderful Friday and weekend.
What workouts have you been loving lately? I’m always up for new ideas.
