THIS workout just kicked my butt. I burned over 400 calories in 45 minutes at home with just a pair of 8 lb dumbbells. If you have an iPhone, I highly recommend downloading the Nike Women app.
I’m pushing myself these days because I have a variety of events in May from a wedding, a photoshoot to a mini vacation, I want to look good and feel good while traveling.
When I’m looking to firm up, my go to is cutting carbs at dinner time. I still have my oatmeal in the morning, don’t worry. Last night I made steamed/roasted broccoli with Mrs Dash and some chicken with an avocado, red onion, and grape tomato salsa. The avocado was not quite ripe, but it tasted just fine. I added some Blue Cheese Dijon Mustard from Stonewall Kitchen as well.
Earlier in the week I made a delicious pork dish This here has a few more carbs but I cook for two don’t you know? This recipe is from Eating Clean Magazine.
I dipped the pork in egg whites and corn meal, pan fried then glazed with a balsamic vinegar glaze with raisins (2 TBSP Vinegar, 2 TBSP Water, 1/2 cup Raisins, simmer for 10 minutes in same pan as pork). The glaze made the pork slightly cool to eat but not sure how to avoid it given the recipe.
The slaw was delicious! To make it yourself, grab a bag of pre-cut cole slaw or confetti mix and add 2 finely chopped stalks of celery. In a bowl mix together 2 TBSP of Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 TBSP of Olive Oil, 1 packet of NuNaturals or other stevia, 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes, 1/2 tsp Pepper, Salt to taste. Mix together and let sit for about 30 minutes before serving! Roomie added some raisins and toasted almonds to the final product which were a fabulous addition.
