Now enough blabbering on. I thought this week I would post a couple workouts I have been doing as well as a few healthy recipes I am hoping to try.
I found this AMAZING new blog run by nicole called pumpsandiron which has tons of challenging workouts, healthy recipes, DIY projects, and fashion posts. Exactly my cup of tea! I decided to try 2 of her workouts Saturday and I honestly thought I was going to pass out, but I made it through. I highly recommend checking it out for some inspiration.
I also did Jillian Michael's Banish Fat Boost Metabolism workout and a couple biggest loser workouts like Cardio Max Weight-Loss, At-Home Challenge, and Calorie Knockout. Also, I managed to coerce Brandon in to working out with my twice this week ;). We made up out own workouts both times combining cardio and strength exercises in a circuit format.
Lately, I have been thinking about how many projects, recipes, crafts, etc that I have pinned on Pinterest and then never thought about it again. So I thought I would look back through my recipes and find a few that I would like to try in the new week or two! So here it goes.
Quinoa & Black Bean Lettuce Wraps
Spinach, Mushroom & Feta Quiche
Healthy Quinoa Recipes
Honestly if you haven't tried quinoa, get on it. It's a great substitute for rice and it packs a huge protein punch! I really want to try the strawberry and mandarin salads, the black bean burgers, and the apple cinnamon breakfast quinoa.
Granola Energy Bars
I love the idea of putting dried fruit in granola bars.
I will hopefully be trying these recipes in the next little bit and I will be sure to document it and share with you as soon as I can.
Until next Friday, get off your butt, move a little more each day, try new healthy foods (you may be surprised), and find a way to make these healthy habits FUN! Trust me, if I can do it so can you. Make small changes and see the difference it makes!
Have a wonderful weekend!
