Well I started the NROLfW on Monday. Oh My God my legs!!! They were burning so bad yesterday. OK – I thought I was in pretty decent shape, but after that work out I felt like I haven’t worked out a day in my life. My butt hurts, my quads hurt, the back of my legs hurt, my hamstrings are tight, and the sides of my legs hurt. I didn’t even know the sides of your legs COULD HURT! I either over did it or just haven’t really worked those muscles that hard before.
Stage 1 consists of two workouts A and B. You go back and forth 16 times (3 times a week) and that is stage 1. In addition to your A & B workout are two special work outs you must complete at the end of each workout and do AMRAP (as many reps as possible). Yup, that’s fun.
So Monday consisted of squats, push ups, seated rows, step-ups, and prone jackknifes. Then I did AMRAP for squats, push ups, seated rows, step-ups, prone jackknifes, deadlifts, dumbbell shoulder press, wide-grip lat pulldown, lunge, and swiss-ball crunch. I am keeping a log of my workouts to track my progress. After every set is a 60 second rest period, and there are some alternating sets. Any who, my legs are still crying, so we’ll see how they treat me tomorrow after putting them through another workout tonight.
I am sure this dish has a lot of different names but this is the one I remember best. Funeral hotdish doesn’t sound appealing, I know, but it is our go to when we want a quick hotdish or we’re working on cleaning out the cupboards. Tonight’s was extra good for some reason. I think it’s been too long since our last batch.
Funeral Hot Dish
Serves: a ton (maybe like 8-10 1 c. servings)
- 1 lb. lean ground beef
- 1 can whole corn, drained
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 2 c. elbow noodles
- 1 large onion
Saute onion in large skillet. Add in your hamburger and cook until no pink is visible. While meat is browning, you can boil your noodles a little less than al dente. Dump all your canned items and taco seasoning in the same pot with the meat and bring to a simmer. Dump your noodles in and keep simmering. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
I had two servings – it’s just so good. It is quick, simple, and makes plenty.
Buster was enjoying his supper tonight as well. What is your go to hot dish?
