Pretty Excited...

Today... I always get excited when my next workout program arrives in the mail. 

I've completed Insanity and T25 (Where is T25 delta Shaun T? I guess you've been a bit busy.)  I had the opportunity to meet Shaun T in person in 2013.  Bananas Yo!  (It's one of his phrases, and also on his shirt here.)

I love all of his work and can't wait to max out... 

Currently I'm following a Beachbody Pump and Combat hybrid.  I've done both programs separately, and loved them both.  Pump is a weight training program that has you lifting weights 3 times a week and Combat is a boxing/martial arts workout that fits nicely in between weight days.  I really miss Boxing and Krav Maga and this workout has gotten me back to kicking and punching and makes me miss hitting a bag even more.  I will most likely be ending this program early to start Insanity Max up in January with a group.  Stay tuned...

After that, I've got my eyes on Jillian's new program, Body Shred.  You could say I'm a super Jillian fan, I have done most of her programs.  I've been waiting for this class format to come out on DVD.  Woo Hoo!

 This pic is from the same event where I met Shaun T.  Jillian kicked my butt in person!

Stuffed Pepper Soup

Hello again,

    Starting to feel the Christmas rush yet?  It's just starting to hit me that I really need to get the final things checked off of my list.  I am all about simple and easy recipes when things get crazy.  Here's the latest that was a big hit.  We love anything pepper in this house, and I frequently make stuffed peppers themselves.

I doubled the recipe and added one extra pepper. mentioned that it ends up more like a stew, and we loved it.
Checkout my pinterest for more of my favorites.

I've been getting some good work in on the Mitts.  Stay tuned for pics.  I can hear the clock ticking...

Awesome Pork Chop Hash Brown Casserole

Here's a quick and easy recipe that I keep find myself going back to when I have pork chops in the kitchen.

I make it as is with 6 pork chops, and the yield is a moist and delicious pork chop.  I generally use cream of chicken soup as I don't tend to have cream of celery on hand.  So many recipes dry them out, this one doesn't at all!  Six Sisters wins again!  I have a few of their recipes in rotation right now, but this is my favorite!

For those of you interested in my knitting, I've finally dusted off my needles.  I'm making some reading mitts for a Christmas present.
