Friday Night Highlights, a New Lunge and the Biggest STUFT Egg-rito Ever

 

Workout:

Taught boot camp this morning.

In honor of the Reebok CrossFit Games going on right now we did the STUFT 10 to 1 Jacking Burpee Challenge.

Happy Saturday! Hope your day is treating you well!

Thought you might want a peak at our night last night since it was the official start of the staycation.

I made corn for the boys for the first time ever. I thought about roasting it, but wasn’t sure so just put it in boring old water.

STUFT Daddy and I did the wine thing after the boys went to bed. Oh, my favorite wine ever. How I’ve missed you. It was delightful.

We also picked up pizza for our date night. I jazzed my salad and cheeseless veggie pizza up a bit with some of my new Penzeys finds.

Along with some Cholula, crushed red pepper and nutritional yeast. And, yeah, I’m pretty sure I still smell like garlic. Ha.

This morning besides doing the jacking burpee challenge I brought back an old favorite.

Rear Foot Elevated Lunge (commonly referred to as the Bulgarian Split Squat)

We use resistance bands a lot in boot camp since they are easily portable and you can still get a good workout with them.

Having your back foot elevated for this lunge places pretty much all the work on your front leg so it almost feels like a one-legged squat. It also engages your glutes a bit more than a regular lunge, so you’ll really appreciate it the next day. Ha ha.

Speaking of glutes, did anyone else used to do those old school Buns of Steel VHS videos? My friends and I were all about those in high school.

Back to the move- you want to lower your body straight down with your knee staying over your heel. Focus on pushing through your heal while bringing the body straight up.

We did it for a minute on each leg and went through twice. If you’re not timing, I would say try to do 20-30 on each leg 2-3 times.

Smile

I had some fun visitors after boot camp that wanted to hang out a bit and were super excited to see the squirrels.

Then……

I made the biggest STUFT egg-rito ever.

Let’s call it the

Fiesta STUFT-rito

The making of the egg-rito- Eggs or egg whites (I usually use 3/4-1 cup) cooked on the stove in a big pan so they can spread out a lot. Make sure to let them cook pretty much all the way before flipping them over.

Inside this fiesta style STUFT-rito was cooked habanero chicken, a serrano chili, broccoli slaw and Tapatio.

I topped it with some salsa and had some baby carrots and sliced jicama with guacamole on the side.

Yep. It was awesome.

Too bad no one else wanted to try it. Next time.

Smile

Okay, we’re off to cause some mayhem at the Y family swim. We’ve never been before and I’m a little nervous. We shall see…..

 

Have a good rest of your day!

 

Oh, forgot. We saw this rainbow yesterday evening.

Cool huh?

I love rainbows. They always make me feel like something really great is going to happen.

You?

    That stuft-rito looks delicious! I can’t believe no one wanted to try it…. haha. I would have accepted your offer to taste it!
    I always smile when I see rainbows. When I was about 6 or 7, my great-great grandma passed away, and there was a rainbow that evening. I remember being with my mom & g-mom, and they said that was g.g.grandma smiling down at us. Now every time I see one, I can’t help but think who is smiling down at me…. :)

    Hey! I love your blog and recipes and I recently put a spin on your idea for meatza pizza/egg rito that I thought you might like to try. I made a “crust” in the fry pan with some canned tuna, coconut flour, flax, psyllium husk, egg whites, broccoli slaw, spices and such (dijon, coconut oil, lemon juice, ms. dash, nutritional yeast) and then flipped it over (carefully), topped it off with pizza toppings and ate it. I thought adding tuna was an interesting idea, thanks to your meatza pizza inspiration! Let me know if you try it with another variation(:
