More Butternut Squash!!!!

Since last week I discovered Butternut squash, I decided to try more recipes with it.

Last time when I cooked the soup I roasted the rest of the butternut squash and it turned out great, so this time I decided to make the whole dish out of it.

you will need:

2 cups of squash

1 red pepper

1 green pepper

1 Leak

1lbs of chicken tenderloins

Spices to taste

Preparation:

Chop all the vegetables in same size cubes(about 1 inch squares), spray baking dish with Pam , set all the veggies in the dish , sprinkle with some garlic salt and roast them at 370 for about 30-40 minutes(until tender).As the vegetables roast, rub some spices on chicken tenderloins ( I like the Cajun spice )and grill on the Gorge Foreman grill until ready.

Set the meat aside, and mix with vegetables when they are ready.

Leave in the oven for another 5 minutes, for flavors to combine.

Enjoy.

You can serve it with the side of hummus, or with a splash of low sugar barbeque sauce.

 

 

 

 

Woodstock’s Finest Battling It Out!

Hey Ya’ll, I am sorry I have been leaving you all out in the cold on the weight loss competition I have Rocking with my Boys from Woodstock! Well, I had them each write a little blurb about their week so take a peek…some really good stuff!

We will go ahead and start it off with My boy CHUNK…he has already dropped a 1/2 inch on his belly and his weight is down to 215.5! Nice work, looks like the TRUFFLE SHUFFLE CARDIO is paying off…down 2 lbs.

 Here is what CHUNK had to say…
“I was so effing sore by the 4th workout it crushed my ability to get the recommended reps in.  I am feeling revived and ready to get after it again today…watch out BIG HOUSE and BIG “S” – CHUNK is coming for YOU!

P.S. Totally slipped my mind, but my preggers wife made me eat pizza this weekend!”

This moves us right along to BIG HOUSE who tipped the scales at 156 lbs, one pound up from last week! Most the times this is bad, however, he is on a different diet…lean and mean and a little more mass is his goal! Take a peek at what the Big Fella had to say:

“One week in and I feel like I am off to a slow start. Left for Vegas on Thursday morning and got back Sunday afternoon. squeezed in a workout thursday morning before take off. Actually did get up and run down the strip one morning, but other than that standard Vegas for 3 days. Still feeling some soreness from early week workouts and walking from casino to casino. Had lots of time on the plane to read and study the workouts and diets. Now bring on week two, and CHUNKY QB and Big as”S” you guys better be working!”

Big “S” has come to play…as he weighed in at 225 this week…yes, he is already down 8 lbs! Hell yeah brother, I love it. Take a look at what he had to say:

“When you dropped this on me last Sunday the first thing that went through my mind was I have no time to do this with work and the new baby. When I started looking at myself in the mirror I said Big “S” you got lazy, no more excuses. Basicly I want to look good naked. It is not easy to find time to do the workouts, but nothing worth doing is ever easy. My schedule every week is; work from 6:00am to 5:15 when I get home I watch my little princess from 5:15 till 8:00 when My Queen is done teaching violin lessons out of our house. I get my cardio by walking and running my dog Lola every night and she couldn’t be happier to help. I squeeze in the workouts on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I am sore, but it is a good burn. I am very curious to see if my calves or as you call them COWS will get smaller or bigger from working out and loosing weight. The diet part of the program was an ajustment. I seriously got hooked on sugar and candy bars for a quick pick me up during the afternoon. I can feel my body going through withdrawl, but it is all good. The one thing I have been teaching myself is to drink plenty of water and when it is getting late and I get hungry I drink a glass of water and GO TO BED. When I wake up I am no longer hungry. I am looking forward to wearing all the cloths I have bought and said I will fit in  when I drop the weight. By the way, you can let Chunky QB and Little House that the GIANT is awake and they are going down!”

Now, here is a little something from Yours Truly:

“Wow, back on the wagon to clean eating, insane workouts, and cutting my ROCKSTAR and MONSTER drinks cold turkey. I have had a few headaches every day due to NO caffeine, however, the massive amounts of water have been able to keep them to a minimum. I have been working out with a local high school athlete Timmy Mahoney so it is good to have a young energetic kid to go through this insanity with me. Yes, these workouts I am doing are no joke. Split days of Upper and Lower Body. I perform 1500 reps on lower body day and 1000 on upper body and mix in tababta training between each superset! BEGINNERS probably do NOT want to start here…I could barely move my arms or legs after the first two workouts so it is pretty intense. It will all be worth is when there is an 8 pack and lot so of lean shredded muscle come the end of this competition. I am truly enjoying the prep and the change and looking forward to changes these coming weeks. My weight was 203.5 lbs so I dropped 3 lbs and feel solid. Ready to crush the week and give these three guys a run for their money!”

Before I go, I also received this from one of the guys and chose to NOT post who wrote it, I encourage you all to comment and let me know who you think said it…I was laughing my ass off so I hope you like it too!

 ”Hey Craig, can you please ADD have “lots of crazy sex” to our workouts and resend the documents to us? I would like to post it on my fridge. I appreciate it!”

Is this classic or what? It is true a good healthy session can burn more calories than you thing…I’m just sayin’!

On that note, I am going to sign off and look forward to hearing what you all have to say! This has been a blast and I look forward to the weeks to come.

I will post pix in next post…enjoy and see you soon!
