TGIF because that means I do not have bootcamp again until Monday!!! Other than that TGIF doesn’t really apply to me because my work week consists of Saturdays and Sundays, so my Friday is like every one else’s Sunday. TGIF to everyone out there who is ending their work week and good luck to everyone who is beginning theirs like I am tomorrow.
My third bootcamp did not disappoint, my sore body was able to complete most of the exercises but it was rough. This session consisted of all the exercises we have been doing throughout the week with the addition of walking lunges with a very heavy sandbag, running and performing shoulder presses with a tire and running and ab work with a medicine ball. These classes are awesome but I am looking forward to the weekend for a rest, my blistered hands and sore body need it desperately.
As promised here is the recap of my dinner last night, it started like this:
Then I cut the spaghetti squash in half and steamed each half in the microwave for 10 minutes. After the spaghetti squash slightly cooled I scraped out the inside out into a bowl, making my “spaghetti” strands, although they always seem to come out a little shorter than real spaghetti. Then I thinly sliced 5 cloves of garlic, chopped 10 sun dried tomatoes, and sliced the chicken into about 2 inch pieces.
I then sauteed the garlic and sun dried tomatoes in 1 tablespoon of olive oil for about 3 minutes, then I added the spaghetti squash and 1/4 jar of the Trader Joe’s Pesto and continued cooking them in the pan. Meanwhile I sauteed the chicken in another pan until browned on both sides and cooked through. This was the result:
Spaghetti Squash with garlic and sun dried tomatoes topped with pesto chicken and Parmesan cheese. The meal turned out delicious and my husband even enjoyed it. Filling, delicious, easy to prepare and healthy, what more could you ask for?
Have a great weekend everyone whether you are starting or ending your work week!!
