https://soundcloud.com/shay-lonfitnesswonderwoman-moss-fitness-wonderwoman/thursday-recipe-roasted-maple

Last Saturday I missed the opportunity to share a recipe with all of you, but was able to do one on my podcast last Thursday. This particular recipe, is for anyone who enjoys sweet potatoes, personally, I do not, so I most likely will not give this a try, but my family loves it so I know they make something with similar ingredients during the holiday months. Hopefully this quick recipe will be one you share with the folks. 

 

Ingredients:

 
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • maple syrup (preferably pure) 2 tbsp
  • cinnamon 1/4 tsp
  • nutmeg 1/4 tsp
  • pepper 1/4 tsp
  • salt 1/2 tsp
  • olive oil 1 1/2 tbsp

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil and spray it. (or without use of parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray)
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes in cubed shaped, and place them inside a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and maple syrup on top of them, then sprinkle the spices, mix together until the sweet potatoes are well covered
  3. Dump onto the cookie sheet and bake them for 15-20 minutes (should be tender and slightly crispy) and you will want to stir the sweet potatoes half way through cooking time.

Enjoy!

12 week (cut) program – Day Seven (workout)

It has been an upward battle with this 12 week cut, everything sinks in quickly when you realize you have to keep a close eye on everything you eat and all your workouts. I have had a lot of support on my YouTube channel and from all of you and I appreciate that because I need it.  Today’s workout was a leg day, and abs (which if you know me, you know I love working the abdominal muscles) and I don’t mind leg day but leg day means sore day! lol 

 

What was your workout today? leave it in the comment section. 

 

Workout Session:

 
  • Squats: 3 x 8-10. I did 105 lb then moved on to 125 lb with my last set
  • leg curls: 3 x 12 -15. 50 lb 
  • leg extension: 3 x 12-15. 50 lb
  • leg press calf raise: 3 x 15-20. 130 lb
  • plank: 3 x 60 seconds
  • twisting hanging knee raise: 3 x 20 (this sucks so bad, always hard and always feeling the burn) lol

I did not do any cardio today, as tomorrow will be a cardio workout day along with my strength training. My eating habits are okay, I think yesterday was a higher carb day, so the rest of this week will be low carb days and moderate carb days (which I am getting used to, kind of). Are any of you doing a cut program? let me know how it is going currently in the comment section!
