Fit Friday!

I maintained this week. I was a little surprised the scale didn't move because I have been eating really healthy dinners lately. Ah well. I have some exciting new ideas for the next week to switch things up and hopefully change the number on the scale.
First up, this Shrink a Size workout from Prevention. There are a few new moves on here that I have never done before so I'm excited to try this. After doing so many workout videos it's hard to find different moves but I was impressed to see some new ones I had never done like:

Read the paper
Firms: Front and side abs
Sit with knees bent, heels on floor, arms in front of body, as if holding a closed newspaper. Slow It Down: Roll back halfway down to floor and twist to left in 4 counts, as if opening the paper on left side. Pull yourself up to start position in 2 counts. Repeat on right side. Do 8 to 12 times per side. Make It Harder (Week 2): Hold a light weight (2 to 3 pounds) in each hand.

I also want to try this Super Smoothie. It looks yummy. I don't know why I don't make smoothies very often. I love them. I have a blender. They are pretty easy. I'm going to try and make a different smoothie everyday next week. Wish me luck. And if you have a favorite recipe let me know!

we make green smoothies almost every morning. Here's one of my faves (for 2 people)
1 banana (peeled)
1 orange (peeled and seeded)
huge handful of spinach (maybe 2 cups)
1 inch knob of peeled fresh ginger
1 cup ice
Blend until smooth!
You don't even taste the spinach and the ginger gives an awesome fresh bite.

Maintaining is better that gaining!

I also love smoothies but in winter, I don't make them often, because I need something hot to keep me warm!

Have a great weekend!
