Kettlebell workout!

Just got my new workout DVD in the mail.  $4.99 on Amazon!  Bob Harpers kettlebell cardio shred.  It was a really good work out.  I think its about a 40-45 minute workout.  It's a full body workout that does a lot of arms, legs, cardio and sit ups.  I had to skip some of the workout.  All you need is a kettlebell to do the workout.  You can get pretty cheap ones at walmart.  I used a fifteen pound kettlebell.  I'm probably not going to do it again until after I have the baby, I think I'll stick to walking.    I love all of Bob's workout DVDs, I have never done one of his workout DVDs wtihout being sore the next day.  They are definitely worth trying.

Dinner and Dessert

  This past weekend we went hiking on Saturday.  The weather is so perfect right now, I love it.  I hope Summer never comes.

Yep, I am huge.  I was breathing so hard on this hike!

Here is a favorite dinner that I make usually once a week.

Vegetarian Enchiladas

Vegetarian Enchiladas!
-trader joe's whole wheat organic tortillas (my favorite!)
-1 can black beans
-1 can corn
-2 sweet potatoes steamed in steamable bags
-sour cream
-enchilada sauce
-franks red hot sauce
-optional: avocado, olives, lettuce, salsa

Combine the black beans, corn, cooked cut up sweet potatoes,  and franks red hot sauce (to taste) in a large bowl.  Wrap the mixture into tortillas and place in baking pan.  Top with enchilada sauce and cheese.  Put enchiladas in oven and broil for 5-8 minutes.  Top enchiladas with sour cream, avocado, lettuce, and salsa.  Great meal for a meatless Monday dinner!

On to the dessert.....For dessert I made a healthier banana/strawberry cream pie!  

-one packet of organics banana pudding (bought at sprouts)
-one organic graham cracker crust (sprouts)
-strawberries and bananas
-milk (I used vanilla soy milk)

Make the pudding according to the packet instructions and let it cool.  Layer bananas and strawberries on the bottom of the pie crust and top with pudding.  Add more bananas and strawberries to the top.
