Bosu Class love!!

Hey hey friday friends! 🙂  Okay, it’s only Thursday…. but.we.are.so.close !

So let’s just start this off by saying that Bosu Class was INTENSE (intensly awesome)!!!   haha like that?

We used a combo of 2 bosu + 6lb medicine ball = booo yah!  I loved it and I hope they offer that one again soon (after I recover ohhhh a week from now 😉 )  JK peeps, but for realz the exercises she did were fabulou and really got the heart rate pumping (just typed pumpkin?) along with some awesome strength training & major core work.

I also gave the Vega Vibrancy Bar another whirl this afternoon at work, which I have now stored in the fridge…


Verdict?  This rocked!!! I loved this bar cold, it firmed up and the flavors/textures were purrrrfect!!! 

In other news, thank you IowaHomeGirl 😉 for sharing the best crockpot recipe blogsite ev-ah with me today, you are my new hero!!   Coincidence that the blog owner’s name is Stephanie, fate  perhaps…?

There is even a recipe for African Peanut Soup which I saw on Caroline’s site the other day and was so intrigued by, *sigh* I see me & my new love crockpot becoming fast friends.

Dinner tonight was uber-fast-tazmanian-devil-style and involved me (1) being on the phone (2) The Man helping out/aka talking about how much he hates Tony (P90X guy) and (3) cooking dinner.  Yea, talk about total confusion haha 😛

Anywho, I knew that we had some Alfresco Sweet Apple Chicken Sausages w/ Pure Vermont Maple Syrup that needed to be eaten — ummm yes please.  This flavor is my #1 chicken sausage flavor EVER.  You heard it.  Ever.  Yes, they are that good 🙂

So the ingredients looked alot like this


But just swap out Annie for TJ (their mac is superfab fyi)


Saute up the sliced chicken sausages in some cooking spray


Also saute up the frozen veggies in a similar manner (add some water to steam them a bit too) and combine with sausages


Find a random handsome hunk to make the shells n’ white cheddar 😉


Combine the goods together


BUT WAIT!!  Don’t forget the secret ingredients 🙂


Nutmeg + black pepper in shells with cheese = heaven


So good, every time!

Alright friends, I’m outta here to go do the dishes and cuddle up to some Grey’s Anatomy.  I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday night and see you tomorrow — WHOOP WHOOP FOR FRIDAY! 🙂


Carrot PB dippin’

Hey hey friends… it’s Thursday…. hooray! 😛  *Sighhh* I can’t wait for the weekend, one of my besties that you have met before is coming to visit – and I told her she couldn’t visit unless she brought  she’s bringing her famous red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting too!  JK guys, I am not that demanding 😉  These cupcakes are too die for, for realz.

Here’s a breakdown of the rest of last night.

The bad news: I never got around to opening up the crockpot o’ lurve

The good news: Reason being, I was having too good a time with catching up on all you fabulous peeps via google reader instead!

…. Oh yea, and watching the Yankees go down 😉 

I really want to use ol’ crockie this weekend however, so time to hop to it, sounds like I have a “hot” date tonight, get it? (nerd alert)

So I know The Man would probably love to know I am sharing this with the blogworld, but today was P90X “yoga day” and let’s just say that this morning I learned this:

The Man + P90X Yoga = 1 unhappy camper

After about 30 minutes he comes storming out of the room looking all disgruntled and proceeds on a 10 minute rant on how Tony (P90X guy) has lost his mind if he thinks that The Man would be able to fold into a pretzel shape and contort his body in ways not physically possible….  to his defense, the moves he was describing sound even more difficult than any yoga I have ever done 😦 

So The Man stated firmly that there will be no more P90X yoga.  Ever.   He will stretch instead — I, of course, was not going to accept this bad attitude and suggested that perhaps he replace Tony’s yoga craze with one of my favorite sessions on ExerciseTV that are more reasonable for a 6’4″ guy to do.  He rightfully obliged!!!  So him and Maura and Elise are going to meet soon, go honey! 🙂

I got his back yo.

Onto the eats, which today included some leftover pasta from last night


and salad – which I so artfully combined with goods from the work caf once again (I see a trend forming?)

2salad  salad

and my first try at this combo (trivia – which blog-ista does this?!)  Thanks Christie 😉


not too shabby.

After work tonight I hope to make it over to a new class my gym is offering – Bosu!!!  I’ve done a few kickboxing & other moves on this guy


but never a whole hour of exercise using it before, it is gonna be a toughie I think, but I’m ready for the challenge 😉

Tonight’s dinner is going to feature some of my most fave chicken sausages evah! 


Oh and btw, I had a friend already tell me they just tried these after seeing them on the bloggie & adored them – you know who you are 🙂 !!

Can’t wait to see everyone back for an evening nightcap recap!  Hey, it’s Thursday 😉
