Stuffed bell peppers

Image
So last week I was seriously craving stuffed bell peppers so that is what I made for lunches this week. I rarely measure stuff when I'm cooking so the measurements will be approximate but remember you can always adjust recipes to better suit your taste! This recipe made way more than what I needed for the 5 peppers I had but I'm freezing the rest for another batch :)
Ingredients: 1/3 c. chopped onion (I used a quarter of a large onion.)1 celery stalk2 to 3 cloves of garlic (I use the mince garlic you can buy in a jar from costco so I used over 1 tsp of that)2 lbs ground beef (you can also use ground turkey or chicken to make this lower in calories)1 carrot, shredded5 mushrooms1/3 c. kidney beanstomato sauce/crushed tomatoes2 cups of brown rice (cooked separately)bell peppersParmesan cheeseBake at 350F for 20 minutes 


Preheat your frying pan at medium low heat and get your rice cooking. Use a few tablespoons of oil (can use whatever oil is your favorite, I used olive) and added…

PTS course

This weekend was crazy... I feel like I need another weekend. I had to take Friday off work so I could attend the three day course for my personal training certificate. It was a lot of fun, I met some new friends who have the same passion for health and fitness, and I'm looking forward even more to start training people and helping them change their lives.

One of the ladies (women just makes us sound old haha) I met there is competing in November and has a blog as well. Check it out here!

Hello! Yesterday was Flex Friday so this was my picture after I finished a FitnessBlender workout. I finished the Nike Training Club program last week and then went to my family reunion. I didn't workout for 5 days and ate like crap. I'm happy to be home and to be getting back into my routine. I wasn't drinking enough water there, drank alcohol every evening, and was eating poorly and too much.
To kick things off I am doing the 5 day challenge from www.fitnessblender.com that they posted last week. I'm on day 3 today and I love it so far. Their workouts are a really good blend of strength and cardio, and the have the warm up and cool down. I was going to start another NTC program on Monday but I think I may buy one of Daniel and Kelli's 8 week programs since I'm enjoying their workouts so much. (I'll let you know what I decide)
Next weekend I am going for my personal training course so I can become a certified personal trainer. My exam will be in October a…
