Just Call Me Grillmaster

I tried something new yesterday after work.  Because of the heat, it was in the 90s, and my extreme lack of interest in my gym lately I didn’t run outside or hit the pool.  Instead I browsed exercise TV for the Brooklyn Decker workout videos my sister was telling me about.  Apparently she recently partnered with ELLE Magazine and created a “Make Better” line of exercise videos.  The videos are found under the bikini revolution section of exercise TV.  Last night I did two of the videos, the Cardio Body and Beauty Sculpt.  Like Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred video, these videos are a 21 day workout routine.  You can even download a workout plan that is designed to accompany the videos.


The videos seem pretty decent, I am definitely feeling it in my back today and I was really sweating by the end of the Cardio Burn.  I’m probably going to try to integrate these videos into my workout routines for the next couple of weeks before I hit the beach for my week-long vacation, so I’ll keep you posted on how it’s going.

After my sweat sesh, I got to making dinner. On the menu last night were Turkey Burgers and roasted zucchini and squash.  To season the ground turkey, I cut up some red pepper, green pepper, orange pepper, yellow pepper, and onion and threw them all into the food processor.  After they were combined and chopped, I added the mixture to the meat.

I then added some garlic powder, McCormick’s Montreal Steak Grill Mates seasoning, and a few tsps of Worcestershire sauce.  I mixed everything together to form the burger patties.

While the grill was heating up, I prepared the vegetables.

Yellow squash seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder on a piece of tin foil sprayed with olive oil non-stick spray.

Zucchini seasoned the exact same way.  Then it was time for everything to hit the grill.  The burgers cooked for about 8 minutes on each side (I make thick burgers) and the veggies just cooked while the burgers were.

With a yummy, melty slice of American cheese and some lettuce.

The veggies

All together now

Soooo good.  I love how the veggies are in every single bite.  There are four more burgers left for use this weekend, and I cannot wait!  My sister went and saw Sex and the City 2 last night at midnight so I am anxiously waiting for her to wake up so I can see what she thought!

Happy Thursday kids, one day closer to the holiday weekend!

  11. I cant wait to see SATC2 but I’m gonna hold off–last time I went on opening night and there were women there dressed as characters. To each her own but yeah…I’ll wait.

    Yes, that really happened.
