Staying Fit!

Standard

Lately I have been working out everyday, trying to stay fit.  I’ve heard of an awesome method that works amazingly! So for those who love treadmills, here is what you do:

Get on the treadmill and have a water bottle close by. First start out by walking a minute (any speed) on a level 1.  Then run a speed of 5.5 for the next minute. Run a speed of 6.0 for the following minute. Then for the minute after that, run a speed of 6.5.  You want to run a 0.5 up from your previous speed, for a minute each, until you get to 8.5.  Then after you hit that last speed, walk it out for 4 minutes (speed ranging from 2.0-3.5).  Afterwards, run the pattern again until you hit the speed of 8.5.  It may be exhausting and difficult at first, but after a while, it feels good and works like a charm! If you get overheated or do not feel well, then go easier on yourself and take it down a notch.  Good luck!

Something Healthy!

Standard

For tonight’s dessert, I decided to make a fruit smoothie with my new blender!  First I added a whole tray of small ice cubes, 4 scoops of vanilla light yogurt (regular spoon fulls), and 3 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream.  Then I added a whole fresh banana, 2 spoon scoops of frozen blueberries, 4 frozen peaches, 2 spoon scoops of strawberries, and 1 spoon scoop of mango’s. Finally to top it all off, I poured 1 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of strawberry and banana light V8 Splash juice into the blender.  I mixed it for a couple minutes and it was delicious!! I highly recommend trying it! 🙂
