Via this page I will give you regular updates on 10min workouts you can do at home if you can't get to the Box and receipt ideas.

10min Workout idea:

Double tabata (you can find tabata music via Spotify or Itunes)

1st tabata: (20sec on / 10 sec off for 8 rounds) Skipping and Air squats as man reps as you can

2nd tabata:( 20sec on / 10 sec off for 8 rounds) Burpees and Sit up as many reps as you can

Followed by 100 DU's or 300 single skips

Receipt idea I found on the net:

Italian Beef Stew Recipe

Everyone loves a good stew, they're so easy to make, packed with protein and they're easy to make in bulk and freeze which can save a lot of time in the kitchen.

This is a simple recipe for a tasty beef stew using Italian herbs and seasoning. Like many stews, this dish is really versatile and you could easily make it with lamb or pork instead (remember that this would change the nutrition values) and you can throw in lots of different vegetables if you choose too. 

We've made this a quick stew that cooks in under an hour but if you want a richer flavour and more tender meat then you could cook this in the oven in a casserole dish for a few hours or by throwing everything into the slow cooker too. Either way, it's really yummy regardless of how you cook it!

Making Our Low Carb Beef Stew Recipe

Ingredients

  • 500g stewing steak
  • 400ml beef stock or red wine
  • 2 red onions, quartered
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Method

  1. Heat a large pot on a medium heat and add the olive oil and gently fry the onions for a few minutes. Add the garlic and fry for a further minute.
  2. Throw in the carrots, tomato puree, stock, seasoning and beef to the pan and mix through.
  3. Cover with a lid and simmer for around 40 minutes, remove the lid and simmer for a further 20 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken. Alternatively, you could do all of the above but in a slow cooker for an even more delicious, rich stew.
