Almost done with our first two months of intentional eating and exercise! Have you seen or felt any improvements in your overall health? I know I have! And the simple fact that my toddler is trying new things and eating more vegetables is encouraging me to continue. I hope you will join me! And I want to hear from you - recipes you've tried, workouts you are doing at home, and overall feedback on the blog.
Below you will find this week's meal plan, including links to any recipes I may be following. Most of the meals this week will be my own original recipes. And as always, I'll be posting these recipes and photos throughout the week.
I've also included a few workouts for you to try if you're in the mood to change things up a bit. I'm always doing something different that way my muscles don't get used to the same thing. Recently I've been alternating running outside (as long as there is no snow or ice on the sidewalks), stationary bike, kickboxing, Insanity, and other cardio, plyometric, and full-body weight exercises.
Happy Cooking! (and fitness)
Working on our fitness
Please excuse the name in the link, but here is a great 30 minute workout with no equipment needed: http://noskinnybitcheshere.tumblr.com/post/14722637839
