3:25 am here on the East Coast. I'm up with my nasty cough again. x(

I might try sleeping down here on the couch so I don't disturb hubby too much. Or maybe the comfy chair since sitting up makes me cough less. Going to try.

I think I might have to go back to the doc soon. :(

Good morning Lainie and girls,

I just wrote a long a$$ post and it disappeared!

Cheryl** I am sorry you still not feeling better! Whatever you caught hit you really hard! Sending you lots of healing vibes! Make sure you take it easy! I am glad you back!

Lori** WTG on you 4 mile run and circuit workout yesterday! Are you still doing BFL? Why are you working out so much? My weight is holding on this week too! No luck!

Amelia**I hope you enjoyed your rest day yesterday? Are you still sore today? I hope you get that TM soon!

Shannon** I am sorry about your restless night! I hate when that happened! Good job still getting your workout in! Did you see Cathaís new fitness line? She has lots off cool stuff!

Stacey** great job on you UB and abs yesterday! Make sure you stay warm! I really liked working out at the gym!

Lanie** I am sorry your knees are still bordering you! I am glad you enjoy the 4DS rotation! Nice workout yesterday! Did you buy your Catheís DVDís from Catheís website? Why are you selling them? I am interested in the Classics! Not sure if it is a good one! That is the one DVD I donít have! Tracey Staehle's recipes looks really good! You need to get some sleep, girl! Way to early for you to get up!

Have a great day!
Belinda

Hello!!

How is everyone this morning? We had a super tough night last night! My oldest DS came down with a nasty bug yesterday morning and was sick all day yesterday and last night (throwing up, sore throat). I'm wondering if he has the flu? He is at least not sick at his tummy this morning, just complaining of the sore throat. My DH and I were up a lot last night and I'm feeling it today:(

I ended up taking a rest day yesterday with Alex being sick. So today's plan is to do some form of cardio. At this point I'm thinking of either Kim Spreen's Cardio Camp, or the elliptical. I'll see what I'm in the mood for later.

Belinda, how are you today? Thanks for getting us started and ENJOY your rest day today:)

Lainie, sorry you are feeling bad still! Man this has been one of the WORST seasons I can remember for viruses. My kids have never been this sick before! I'm praying that I avoid it!

Cheryl, so glad to hear from you and I'm very sorry you've been so sick. My brother is also on the Z pack and has the same thing you have. Hope you feel better soon and can get some good rest today.

Lori, glad you avoided the cold! Sounds like you had a great run yesterday and I hope today goes great for you.

Hi to Carrie, Amelia, Shannon, and all who follow:)

Okay, better get a lot more coffee here! Will try to check back with you all later. Check out Cathe's new blog post on STS. Looks neat. My sister and I have actually discussed splitting the cost for STS, but may wait and purchase it next Fall or Christmas. We would share it and that way it would be less expensive. I'd like to see how it turns out before I purchase it, even though it would be a lot cheaper with the presale.

Hi girls,

This was my lunch today! I made it a few times and it is always delish!

Butternut Squash Lasagna

courtesy Giada De Laurentiis


Cook's Note: The no-boil lasagna noodles can be substituted with fresh spinach lasagna sheets. Look for fresh lasagna sheets in the refrigerated section of specialty markets.


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (1 1/2 to 2-pound) butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup water
3 amaretti cookies, crumbled
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 1/2 cups whole milk
Pinch nutmeg
3/4 cup (lightly packed) fresh basil leaves
12 no-boil lasagna noodles ( I used ww lasange noodles!
2 1/2 cups shredded whole-milk mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan

Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the squash and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour the water into the skillet and then cover and simmer over medium heat until the squash is tender, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly and then transfer the squash to a food processor. Add the amaretti cookies and blend until smooth. Season the squash puree, to taste, with more salt and pepper.
Melt the butter in a heavy medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the milk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, whisking often, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the nutmeg. Cool slightly. Transfer half of the sauce to a blender*. Add the basil and blend until smooth. Return the basil sauce to the sauce in the pan and stir to blend. Season the sauce with salt and pepper, to taste.

Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F.

Lightly butter a 13 by 9 by 2-inch glass baking dish. Spread 3/4 cup of the sauce over the prepared baking dish. Arrange 3 lasagna noodles on the bottom of the pan. Spread 1/3 of the squash puree over the noodles. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Drizzle 1/2 cup of sauce over the noodles. Repeat layering 3 more times.

Tightly cover the baking dish with foil and bake the lasagna for 40 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses over the lasagna. Continue baking uncovered until the sauce bubbles and the top is golden, 15 minutes longer. Let the lasagna stand for 15 minutes before serving.

*When blending hot liquids: Remove liquid from the heat and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. Transfer liquid to a blender or food processor and fill it no more than halfway. If using a blender, release one corner of the lid. This prevents the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Place a towel over the top of the machine, pulse a few times then process on high speed until smooth

Enjoy!

Good morning Ladies:) Although it is getting closer to afternoon here!
I had an o.k night at work but I was exhausted when it was time to come home. I went to bed until 11 which is pretty good for me but the best sleeps I have are when DS is out of the house cause every noise he makes....I hear! Anyway,I am sipping some coffee and typing this with one had b/c he is in my arms:) I use to do this when I nursed him, you wouldn't beleive how fast I could type with one hand! Ive lost the ability though b/c you have no idea how long this is taking me:) hehe!

Im not sure what todays workout will be. It may be another circuit with longer runs.Depending on how much time I have.I don't mind doing circuits back to back b/c they never make me sore. Its more for endurance then strength gains.

I know I only just woke up but I feel as if I am in control of my eating today:) Ive already spotted the brownies that I had a breif relationship with yesterday but I closed the fridge door again. It didn't bother me either which makes me realize it was just mindless eating! I probably didn't even taste half of what I was eating!

Belinda** Enjoy your rest day! I think I workout so much b/c I can:) If I don't have the time then it doesn't bother me and I am happy with an hour.I don't like taking rest days though b/c I tend to eat more.Instead I will just to a lighter cardio or something.Glad you got your MP3 player!

Amelia** I hate it when DH drives me crazy! When he was unemployed he drove me nuts b/c he was always around. Before that i hardly seen him.I think you will want to take some activties outside this week;) Nice fortune!!!!

Stacy** So sorry to hear your boy is sick! I hate it when kids get sick cause they are so helpless.I hope it doesn't go right through the house!

Laine** There is nothing worse then a hacking cough in the middle of the night.I hope you got somme rest after!

Cheryl** Hope you are able to check in with us today and get a workout in!

Carrie** What do you have on taps for today? Is your baby as clingy as ours or do we have ours ruined?

Shannon** Did you get a better nights sleep? Company still around?

Kristine** How did Heidis b-day party go? DS wasn't impressed at his...I don't think he likes alot of people around.

Alright this as taken me forever! Ill BBL!

Lori:)
