Now that the weather is getting warmer, I find myself craving smoothies. Smoothies are considered a “health” food but with the wrong ingredients your smoothie may be as healthy as a Butterfinger Blizzard.
There is a vast nutritional difference between a smoothie made with sugar-filled ingredients like fruit juices, yogurts and agave and a smoothie made with frozen berries, spinach, collagen, avocado and water.
Start with the warm up. Then, complete 3 rounds of circuit A, rest 2-5 minutes, complete 3 rounds of circuit B, rest 2-5 minutes, then end the workout with 1 round of the finisher. Within each circuit move from one exercise to the next with minimal rest. Within each circuit the reps decrease with each round. See the reps column for each circuit. For each exercise choose a weight that is challenging but allows you to keep moving at a quick pace.
What are you up to this weekend? You know what you should do?
Go see Beaty & the Beast 3-D! I went last night with a friend who was seeing it for the second time. It’s that good!
For those of you, like me, who saw the animated version one million times as a child, prepare to be amazed. It blows plain old animation out of the water. The 3-D element is amazing and Emma Watson is a perfect Belle! Josh Gad plays Gaston’s sidekick LeFou. He his hilarious as always but it’s so hard not picture him as Olaf the whole time. My point is – go see it for yourself!
In his song Juicy, Notorious B.I.G reminisces about when he used to eat sardines for dinner. He’s pretty much saying that now that he’s a super famous rapper he doesn’t have to eat cheap, simple fish from a tin anymore. Well Mr. B.I.G., you don’t know how you good you had it with those inexpensive, super nutrient-dense little fishies.
Sardines are little nutrition powerhouses that everyone, kids and adults, should be eating. You eat them whole so you are getting nutrients from the skin, bones, and muscles. Don’t be a weeny and get grossed out. First let’s talk about their benefits; then we’ll talk about how to eat them.
