Beef Lettuce Wraps

Happy New Year to everyone. As we kick off a new year, I think it is only right that I share a new recipe. I was in the mood for something easy for dinner tonight so I came up with this quick Lettuce wrap featuring ground beef and avocados.


Les Mills Pump Week 1


Greetings and I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. It was enjoyable to seeing our son enjoy Turkey and vegetables for the first time. I tried not to overindulge on holiday treats but, I still feel the need to get back on a 30 to 60 day program and not let the holidays start old habits in unhealthy eating.

So, I was pretty excited to see my Les Mills Pump workout kit had arrived when I got home yesterday. I decided since it was Monday December 1st I would get my barbell put together and workout to the first program. I am going to commit to 60 Days for this program because it will be a new series and it will be fresh and new for me.

The kit I received includes 7 workouts, 2 each of 5 and 10 pound barbell weights, padded barbell, two clips, and the nutrition guide.

The barbell and weights were easy to assemble and are a good quality padded barbell.

The first workout is an introductory workout and is only 20 minutes long. But, it is not short on quality. I must say I had to take a break on two exercises and did not complete the full repetitions and that made me feel pretty good that this series will be challenging.  The workout goes through squats, chest, shoulders, and arm exercises. They teach you the correct way to row and pickup and put down the barbell.

Today was a rest day but I actually felt pretty good so I decided to complete a pilates workout today.

I have taken my before measurements and I will post those shortly. This Pump series should help provide strength that I need in my arms and back. I look forward to posting my full review as we go along.
