This is what happens when you push back on an Italian trainer!

Oh Wendi, pushing me around like most women in my life! We actually shot this vid a couple weeks ago. It may not seem much, BUT this is a huge milestone for me. Before I met my agent of pain at the CENTER, I could barely walk!

In all seriousness, my workouts are quick and not painful. It really is all about moving in a different way and holding a different posture. Combining these sessions with smart eating are exporting my results.

I am quoting my agent:

"Pull up those boys and clinch the butt!" Hilariously true. Being mindful as I walk up stairs, unload cases and cases of food, even as I am prepping makes all the difference in my movement. I will forever remember Wendi every time the steps look daunting! So I thought since we are on the subject of my "BOYS" I thought I would share my recipe for:

Chef Tommy's Meatballs

In a sauté pan lightly sauté:

2 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1/4 cup small diced celery

1/4 cup small diced pepper

1/4 cup small diced onion

Let cool

In a large mixing bowl mix very well:

4 large eggs

3-4 Tablespoon fresh minced garlic

2 pounds ground beef

1 pound Italian sausage(no casing)

1/4 cup Italian seasoning

2 cups bread crumbs, seasoned

Tablespoon kosher salt

Tablespoon fresh cracked pepper

Cooled Celery/Onion/pepper mix

Use an ice cream scoop to portion out your meat balls, make any size you like!

Roll each meatball in the bread crumbs.

(Not to brag, but mine are 1/4 pound!)

Bake in a shallow pan at 350 degrees until brown, then smother with your favorite sauce, bake until the sauce is bubbly and the internal temperature of the meatballs at 150 degrees. Let rest!

The way I love to present these is with fresh chopped romaine lettuce and spicy Giardinera, oh and of course a little Parmesan or Asiago cheese on top.

Thank you Wendy and the Center, I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy our therapy.
