Day 12: Freezer Cooking and Feeling the Burn

Today’s Challenges:

Crunches: 95
Squats: 70
Water: 4 bottles of water

So yesterday I did the squat/crunch combo and got so pumped about it!  it made them easier to do…I didn’t even mind the muscle strain.  I had a feel a feel the burn moment.  To add a little extra to it (and maybe speed up some results so I can stay motivated) I added ankle weights and a 3lb dumbbell cross punch for the shoulders.  Keeping count is the “fun part”.  If I do it right the 70 squats will equal 35 crunches (1 on each side).  Are there anymore standing crunch ideas?  I didn’t put a towel down one day and the next day by booty hurt.

Ode to Freezer Cooking.  What I like about having Sundays off is that I can (if the spirit moves me to do so) prepare all of my meals for the week and put them in the freezer (or fridge) until I am ready for them.  This week I went all out! I scrambled up a mess of eggs and divided them up with a multigrain waffle and either turkey sausage or bacon.  Breakfast DONE!  For lunch I’ve got ham or turkey sandwiches or a salad.  For the salads I cut up a baked chicken breast and I will add those on top along with some sliced apples which I can either add to the salad or just enjoy with the Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese dip I splurged on.

Dinner was DEVINE! I got off early today so I decided to marinate a pork chop and throw it in the oven when I got home, figuring while it was baking (along side some baby brussel sprouts) I could get my work out in.  OMG orgasm of the taste buds!  It was delicious! recipe is below.
