Workout update and recipe

We are 4 weeks into our workout program and are seeing results. When we first started we were dying when we would do the workouts, and some of them we couldn't even finish. Now we can finish every workout and are starting to add harder moves or more weight! Whoohoo! I have lost 6 lbs. and an inch around my stomach, hips and shoulders!! BJ is down 15lbs and I'm not sure on his inches, but he's doing great! We are learning some healthy meals to make that actually taste good. And things to add to our diet that we never thought of.

Anyway, here is one of our favorite recipes that I wanted to pass on to you :) Hope you like it as much as we did. And! It is healthy so go ahead and try it out!


Pasta Pomodoro
1Tbls. EVOO
1Tbls. chopped garlic
2 Tbls. fat-free chicken broth, low sod.
1/2 cup tomato, peeled and diced
2 oz. whole wheat pasta
6 oz. med. shrimp (we don't like shrimp, so we sub. chicken)
2 Tbls. basil leaves, chopped

This is my recommended size portion, so I doubled everything and it made enough for all three of us.
All you do is cook your pasta according to the package, while that is cooking, place EVOO and garlic in large saute panfor several minutes until lightly browned. Add chicken broth and tomatoes to pan; simmer for 5-10 min. or until tender. By now your pasta is probably ready, so drain it. Add shrimp to the sauce mixture, or chicken or omit all together. Cook until meat is opaque. Add basil and toss sauce with cooked pasta.

This tastes so good, very similar to capellini pomodoro at Olive Garden! YUM!
