Sweatin’ on Saturday

As you all may remember, blisters kept me out of the gym all week.  Bummer!  Luckily, they had healed well enough for me to go for a run yesterday.  I completed 2.5 miles before completing a 10-minute ExerciseTV workout and my at-home lower body routine.

Lean Leg Routine (It’s cool because it rhymes.)

  • *Complete 15-20 reps of each exercise (I mostly did 20) in three sets.
  • Fire Hydrants (side leg lifts from table position)
  • Bridge Pose with Leg Cross & Extension (booty burner!)
  • Donkey Kicks (I straightened my leg and used a resistance band.)
  • Lying Leg Lifts/Adductor Lift (inner thighs)
  • Regular or Walking Lunges (walking are best)
  • Plie Squat with Calf Raise

This week, my workouts were something like this…

I also tried out one of my EAS goodies in a new way.  I am going to save the rest of them for on-the-go moments, but I wanted to see how they’d taste in a smoothie.

In goes the spinach…

greens

Mix with a bit of strawberry (or chocolate) Myoplex Carb Control shake – add more (but not quite all) of the shake with a frozen banana…

And get a huge bowl of frothy, smooth goodness!  You can’t taste much strawberry, and you can’t taste any spinach.  It’s banana with a hint of berry.  As stated, I probably won’t be making this again, but it was quite tasty.  Not to mention, my ingredients made waaaaay bigger smoothie than I thought they would (especially because of it’s extra froth volume)!

I need to walk with Kev and work to do around the house before we have guests over tonight, so I better get going.  Have a great weekend!
