Fall time for me is always associated with certain foods. Aside from the obvious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin pie...I love squash! All kinds...butternut, acorn, spaghetti...you name it. I've been itching for some acorn squash, and tonight was the night. My mom always bakes her acorn squash in the oven, which is delicious; however, I didn't have time for that tonight. SO, I cooked mine in the microwave. It turned out perfect.
Here's how it's done.
one ingredient chicken and roasted vegetables from last week. It's such an easy meal and a great way to eat a mountain of veggies!
Today's workout was legs and shoulders:
10 minute warm up on the elliptical
3 sets of each exercise
Leg Press (12 reps/270 lbs)
