Shaun T's New Workout Is HERE! Insanity Max 30 Details!
GAH! It's here!! Shaun T's new workout, Insanity Max 30 has officially launched and guess who is signed up and ready to kick things off starting January 5th!! And guess who is going to be my early morning workout buddy but didn't know what he got signed up for?!?!

Insanity Max 30 Program Details!
Shaun T’s new workout, Insanity Max 30, has been one of the biggest releases yet and I KNOW is going to sell out fast!

Get this, each workout is ONLY 30 minutes long but is going to give you the workout of your life. The goal isn't to get through the whole 30 minutes either. The goal is to go as hard as you possibly can and "max out". It's a 60 day program, where you workout 5 days a week. It has 150 new cardio and strength moves that are, well, for lack of better words, insane.


Insanity Max 30: What is "Maxing Out"?
Basically, maxing out is the point that you just can't do any more OR the point at which you can do any more without losing proper form. So even if you might be able to struggle through but you are getting sloppy and can't hold form? Yup, you've maxed out. The idea is that you keep track of the time when you "max out" in each workout and then when you come back to do that workout again, the goal is to just beat your previous max out time. That's probably the thing I love the most about Insanity Max 30, it's like a competition with yourself!

Insanity Max 30: Am I Ready?!?!
Here's my second favorite thing about the program. It's a seriously challenging program but you can start it no matter where you are in your fitness level. I am still only a few months out of finishing treatment and I know I can do this program. There is a modifier the ENTIRE TIME and you get a serious workout even if you have to modify the entire time until you max out. So this is the perfect program for people who are just starting out, for people looking for a total transformation or for people who have already graduated from some of the extreme programs!

Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

It's "Tasty Tuesday"! 

So this week's Tasty Tuesday marks the first time that we tried to grill a pizza! We had it for the first time over the summer at my parent's house and it was really good, so we decided to give it a whirl! Instead of buying the pre-made pizza crust (which you could totally do to make it even quicker), Wes tried whipping up some homemade whole wheat crust which was surprisingly both good and super easy!

This recipe makes two twelve inch pizza's which worked out great for our little family of four because we were able to let the kids make one just for them with some more kid friendly toppings, and then we made one for us with grilled chicken, sauteed onions and some cherry tomatoes. I think all in all, for the first try, it ended up pretty good, and we have been able to do different variations since! This recipe was a hit with all four of us (and even Shamus too because The Squishy dropped an entire piece of pizza on the floor which Shamus quickly snatched up). When the summer was rapidly coming to a close, we were trying to use our grill as much as possible so did this a few times! You could pretty much put anything on your homemade grilled pizza and although its not quiet as convenient as picking up the phone to order one, it certainly is much better for you! What toppings would you try?

Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup water(heated to about 110 degrees)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 envelope (2/14 teaspoons) rapid-rise or instant yeast
  • 2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat grill to 500 degrees.

Whisk water, sugar, oil, and yeast together in a small bowl. Allow yeast to proof for 5 minutes. It should puff up some by then.

Pulse flour, parmesan cheese, and salt in a food processor until combined. While running the food processor, slowly pour in the water mixture and process until a shaggy ball forms, about 1 minute.

Dump the dough onto a floured work surface and quickly knead dough a few times until it comes together. Halve the dough.

On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll dough into two  rounds about 11 inches in diameter. Brush each with a light coating of olive oil.

Place each on grill for about 3 minutes a side, enough to get the outer shell a little browned. Add your choice of sauce, cheese and toppings! Place back on the grill until cheese is totally melted and starting to brown on the sides.

Tasty Tuesday! Healthy Burrito Bowls (Great for PiYo & 21 Dax Fix Meal Plans)

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

It's Tasty Tuesday!

For this week's Tasty Tuesday we are doing one of our (definitely one of Wes's) favorite meals, healthy burrito bowls! This is usually one that everyone loves, so long we don't give Emma any rice!! We starting making our own spice mix to make it a more healthy option than a taco seasoning packet. The great thing about this recipe is that you can essentially tailor it to your liking. You can add chipotles in adobo sauce if you want it spicier, or you can make it with ground beef or turkey instead of steak or chicken. Listed below is the recipe, and really you can just make the servings that are appropriate for your family size. We generally make things in servings of 4, since that works for us!

This is a great meal for us to make because we each eat it slightly different. Wes likes his with more rice, less lettuce, and I like mine more as a salad (more lettuce, less rice). This is a great meal to use with the PiYo and the 21 Day Fix program! This is also a really easy meal to make as a clean version. When we have time, we substitute the canned black beans with dry beans, we make our own seasoning, use fresh salsa and it's a great clean meal!

Also, this is pretty close to the Chipotle Burrito Bowl but a healthier and quick version made at home!

Healthy Burrito Bowls

What You'll Need
  • Mexican seasoning
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Lean cut steak or chicken
  • Black beans (1 can reduced sodium or dry black beans)
  • Long grain brown rice
  • Red onion
  • Heart of romaine lettuce
  • Cherry or grape tomatoes
  • Avocado
  • Fresh salsa
  • Lime wedges
  • Cilantro

Cut whatever meat you choose into cubes or bite size pieces. Chop red onion, tomatoes and romaine lettuce.

Prepare brown rice according to the package.Heat beans over medium low heat until warm. If you end up using the dry beans make sure you check the cooking instructions because they usually need to soak and cook for a while (this is a great thing to do on the weekend for a meal later in the week)!

Heat oil in a large saute pan on medium high heat. Add meat (steak or chicken) and reduce heat to medium. After 5 minutes, add Mexican seasoning and a 1/4 cup of water. Cook until water is mostly evaporated and thickened slightly.

While meat is cooking, slice avocado and lime. Chop cilantro.

Remove meat, beans and rice from heat. Serve in bowls (or if you are like us do it buffet style because there is less to clean up afterwards). Add rice, beans and meat. Top with lettuce, tomato, onion, and salsa. Squeeze lime wedge over top. Garnish with cilantro.
