Hey friends! Is it just me or has this week flown by? I am excited that it’s gone by so fast though because tomorrow night we have a girls night out planned. Dinner, drinks, awesome company and I’m sure a good deal of laughs.

 

Today is coming along quite nicely. I got to sleep in and have a nice leisurely morning. I had to make up some more hard boiled eggs for Steve and I remember seeing somewhere that it was possible to bake the eggs in a muffin tin rather than boil them. I was intrigued and had some time on my hands so I gave it a whirl.

I’m happy it worked because I would have been pissed to waste all these eggs

 

The verdict? So simple! Plus it helped make them easier to peel (score!) All I did was heat the oven to 325° pop the eggs in a muffin tin and bake for 25-30 min (I left mine for the full 30). After that I popped them in an ice bath for 10 min then peeled.

The eggs do get some tiny little brown spots on them but there is no difference in taste and I love that I can cook so many at once!

 

Moving on to another kitchen success, I have a new recipe for you! I came up with this one for Kierston’s

Ok, so remember yesterday when I mentioned my knee pain? Ya well that hasn’t subsided yet so I’ve been having to modify pretty much everything I do. However I’m not going to let it stop me from getting in my scheduled HIIT!

 

Here are some awesome things you can use if you’re looking for low impact, high intensity activities:

 

  • Sledgehammer
  • Sled Drags
  • Prowler
  • Kettlebells
  • Battle Ropes
  • Med Balls

 

I’m lucky and have access to all of this good stuff but understand not all of you are so lucky so I wrote out one of my favourite low impact HIIT workouts that you should be able to do at any training facility!

Well I’m off to have Amy take a peek at my knee and then teach class. I’ll check in with you peeps later!
