Tonight’s dinner was quick and dirty, just how I laaiiike it!
Chicken, corn on the cob and leftover quinoa stir fry from yesterday’s dinner (could barely taste the cilantro today!) I love corn on the cob, and it’s been far too long since it has tickled my tastebuds. All the talk about summer earlier today got me in the mood for it ;).
I boiled the corn, and I seasoned the chicken with Mrs. Dash on both sides before cooking it on the griddle.
The chicken was perfectly cooked and juicy. Sometimes the simplest dinners work out the best. This baby was ready to go in 20 minutes. Hurrah.
So yesterday I mentioned that I was trying out a Hard Core Bootcamp class tonight with a coupon I had purchased through TeamBuy. When I was reviewing my ticket this afternoon, I noticed it mentioned I had to email someone to sign up for the class. Whoops. Didn’t do that. I tried to email, but it was like two hours before the class was supposed to start and I didn’t hear back.
No Bootcamp for me.
Not to worry though, I did my own bootcamp (ish) workout at home!
That would be disc two of Carmen Electra’s strip tease workout – Fit To Strip. Ando went out to Canadian Tire after dinner to pick up a few things for our upcoming camping trip (I put him on a strict budget so he doesn’t come home with an entire outdoor kitchen or anything), so I cleared out space in the living room, laid down my yoga mat, and stripped my way to fitness!
Just kidding ;). In this particular DVD of the stripping series, there is no stripping involved, and unlike the other ones (which I actually have as well), there is no striptease routine. This DVD gets you fit to strip (if I ever wanted to strip, that is). It is supposed to make you feel comfortable enough to be seen in the nuddy-pants.
Carmen and a trainer go through a 50 minute routine that starts with cardio and then gets into plyometrics to work all the muscles in your body.
I just found the entire video on YouTube actually, so here’s a sample:
I have had these DVD’s for years and I haven’t done this one for over a year I’d say. I forgot how good of a workout it is, I think I might be sore tomorrow!
When I first bought this DVD it was literally the only exercise I did (this was like seven years ago), and I tried to do it three times a week, so I kind of burned out on it.
But tonight, this was an awesome little workout at home! Pretty sure Hard Core Bootcamp would have been more intense though ;). It would probably also make me look good in the nuddy-pants.
