I hope that everyone had a great end to the weekend. I sure did! After a day of running and getting things ready for the week ahead (as usual), I tried something new to me:
I had never tried acorn squash, but I love seasonal foods and other winter squashes. Also, I keep seeing delicious recipes that involve the acorn squash, so I thought I would give it a shot. At first, I wasn’t quite sure to do with it, then I realized that the squash came with directions!
I started by cutting the squash in half.
I then scooped the seeds out with a spoon.
I then put 1/2 tsp of coconut oil into each half of the squash. On my half I put salt and pepper, and on Brian’s half I put 1 Tbsp brown sugar and some cinnamon. I then microwaved the halves on high for 6 minutes, just like the little sticker suggested. Both halves were extremely delicious! I am definitely going to be purchasing this fall vegetable again.
This morning, I started something new:
I started Tina Reale’s Best Body Bootcamp!
I am really looking forward to this 8 week program. It is always nice to do a program created by someone else because I learn so many things about how different people format things and I get great ideas for future workouts. Also, it’s nice to not have to think about what my workout will be every day. I have already learned some new exercises, and was challenged to complete all the reps with great form…and it’s only the first day!
This is the third round for the bootcamp, and I am already so happy that I finally jumped on the bandwagon. I will keep you posted on my bootcamp endeavors. Each week we must set goals for ourselves and complete different physical challenges.
The tough challenge today? Plank intervals….for over 4 minutes! Insane…but I like it 😉
Hope you have a great start to the week!
