A Smoothie and a Giveaway!


Well, it is Monday.  Where in the world does the weekend go?  I hope everyone out there had a great weekend.  I was able to go outside for a run on Saturday and do one of my 13 in 2013 races.  We had quite the heat wave that day and got up to 27 degrees!  Did you run a race over the weekend?Picture

I also signed up for a new virtual 5K.  Fit, Fab, & Lean is hosting a virtual 5K or Half Marathon.  All the proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.  This medal looks awesome, and it has glitter and stained glass too!

This morning I made a new smoothie.  I tried adding frozen peaches to my smoothie and it came out great!  I was a little nervous, since we were out of Greek yogurt…a staple in all my smoothies.  I’m calling it my Rainbow Smoothie, since it looked like a rainbow before I blended it up.  Isn’t it pretty?

The Burpee Mile

Today I’m doing Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp workout.  Tina has really been giving us some amazing workouts this round, and I love it when I’m challenged!  I’m also adding some extra burpees in there for Rita’s Burpee Mile in the end of March.  Right now I can burpee my way across the length of our house.  I’m hoping to really increase my distance each day.

    I love the looks of your rainbow smoothie! My favorite move right now is a squat with shoulder press. I had to go look up Turkish get ups… never done those, but might have to add them to the mix now!

      I showed my husband how pretty it was and he thought I was loosing it 🙂
      Turkish get ups rock. Make sure you do them slowly so that you keep your correct form.

    I liked your FB page, too! I’m doing Tina’s Bootcamp right now as well, and it is even more challenging than the last round!

    My favourite move is the squat! I can do it with or without weight. I can do 150 squats or add 100lbs to my squat!
    I love that t-shirt too I would wear it with pride!

    I Like The Move That Combines A BackWaRds Lunge And At The Same Time Touch The Floor, TheN Kick Forward And Reach For Your Toe. Name?

      I know the move you are talking about. I alway call them toe touch cross through lunge, but I’m sure there is a more technical name for them out there. There are an awesome exercise too!
