Workout program is changing tomorrow.  For three weeks, I’ll lift twice a day on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I’ll do cardio only on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  I’ve done 2-a-days before.   They are tough.  The goal is to shock the system a little and increase my metabolism.  I’m still eating a surplus in calories, and that will be very important during this phase so that I will be able to recover.  I will prep more food this week to be ready.

Our oven is broken. While waiting for it to be repaired, we shut off the gas to the stove just to be safe. So if I can’t use the burners, I had to come up with Plan B for most of the food I prep for the week.

Headed out to the patio and fired up the grill. It was a little chilly.

While the grill heated up, I put the sweet potatoes in a slow cooker.

Here is the makings for my protein this week.

Chicken grilled with Mrs. Dash Chicken flavor.  But I didn’t want to stay outside.  Brrrrr…

I love red pepper and sauteed onions in my scrambled eggs.  But how to cook onions with no stove?  I used an electric pizza maker.

And how to scramble eggs with no stove?  Microwave them in a casserole dish.  Took about 15 minutes.  I set the timer for 5 minutes at a time and stirred the eggs after each 5 minute period.

I season the eggs with Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil, Garlic.  Divided them up into 5 containers for my breakfasts this week.

I wanted ground turkey for breakfasts, too, but I don’t have a way to ground meat.  So I used the electric grill.  I mixed onion, red pepper, and celery in with the ground turkey.

Here are my breakfast burgers for the week.

For a little extra carbs, I cooked up jasmine rice in the rice cooker.  Love the rice cooker!

It was a frustrating prep, but it worked.  Food is packed and already loaded in the car.  It’s as cold out there as in the fridge – probably colder.  In addition to these things, I’ll eat almonds, fruit, spinach, and kale during the days.  I cook supper every night.  Usually salmon and veggies.

Oh gosh, I’m yawning already and it’s only 7:30 pm.  Better just finish this up and head to bed.  School night.
