I LOVED hearing your random answers to my random questions yesterday 🙂
Last night Michael and I watched The X Factor.Who else watched? There’s something about some of these really talented singers that get me choked up. Sounds silly but it’s so inspiring to me to see people living out their dreams. Simon is much nicer on this show too 🙂
I’ve been a busy bee around here. Right now I am working on a post about Ella’s first solid food I have lots to report…lots of fun and interesting stuff!
My latest smoothie obsession is from the farmers market:
What they do is juice kale and apple, then place it in the Vitamix and blend it with blueberries, pineapple and mango. So delish. I didn’t realize he juices the kale..next time I may tell him to just place it all in the Vita, since I don’t mind the grittyness in my smoothie [and to preserve the fiber].
this is a good way to try it if you have a juicer and a blender available 🙂
Lately I have been killing my legs so much that I feel my hammys getting SUPER tight. I’ve decided that I really need to dedicate myself to getting in more yoga in my life. I was loving it before I got pregnant…then by the time I was unable to lye on my belly I just stuck with the prenatal yoga [I had an amazing teacher, but it’s not the same as Vinyasa which was that I loved]. Now I try to do yoga every Saturday but I don’t always get in a full session. My new goal is to get it in twice a week!
One move I AM doing lots of are one legged pistol squats. I am loving all different variations of it…especially doing it on the Bosu ball [while holding on to a bar of course].
Here’s one other variation to try and incorporate into your workout…great for beginners 🙂
Women’s Health Magazine
Stand with your legs together and bend your right knee 90 degrees so you’re balancing on your left leg (A). As you squat, reach your right arm across your body and try to touch the outside of your left foot with your fingertips (B). Keep your back as straight as possible while reaching. Press back up to start. Complete all reps, then repeat on your right leg. That’s 1 set.
In addition to a baby food post…I am hoping to whip up some goodies using these for you all to try next week 🙂
^Michael thought they were for decoration :/
What fitness move are you loving lately??
Kale Smoothies…love em’ or hate em’?
What do you think about juicing your kale with apples or another fruit before blending it?
