A Killer Lower Body Circuit

This morning was beyond crowed with things I needed (and still need) to get done before I became busy with household chores (we only have 3 people in this house and there is enough laundry for a family of 10…where does it come from?),  volunteering at my son’s school and running my son to his various sports afterwards.  I needed to get in a quick workout that I knew would kick my butt and get my muscles going this morning.  I did jumping jacks in-between each set of leg exercises (not enough room to jump rope in our basement).  You could also jump rope in-between each exercise too.  If you are a beginner you may want to cut the number of sets back to 3 sets.  Remember to stretch afterwards!Smile

After my workout I made a quick bowl of steel cut oats with blueberries and ground up flax seeds.

I’m a huge fan of steel cut oats, blueberries, and flax.  It is a great combination of healthy fat burning food.  Actually, studies show that eating a diet rich in blueberries will help decrease belly fat!  This is the same fat that is also linked to cholesterol and diabetes.  Normally I have some egg whites to go with it, but I just didn’t have the time to make them.  However, the oats really hit the spot before I started my next workout….doing the daily laundry.Smile with tongue out
