No Gym No Problem: Part 1

PicPlayPost20160220_22_38_09.gif

Good Morning Guys and Gals!

I am super excited about this post as it was a request made by a friend. She contacted me on Thursday asking for a 30 minute workout she could do at home.

Just because you don’t have a gym membership doesn’t mean you can’t work out! You don’t need to spend crazy amounts of money on an at-home gym system or make 1001 installment payments on a boflex machine.

One of my biggest pet peeves is chachkas…I never understood why people buy mass amounts of things to display. What happened to less is more? What happened to feng shui?

I am a fan of keeping life simple and clean. I’ll never forget what my dad used to tell me when I was young and rebellious and my room looked like a tornado hit it, “Your room is a reflection of your life. If you can’t keep your space organized, how can your life be any different?” Now I understand what he’s talking about. If things around our place are messy, my whole day is thrown off balance. If you feel the same way, check out Marie Kondo’s, The-Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up .

I’ve come up with a 30 min work out plan that does not require lots of space or equipment. This circuit can burn approximately 260 calories for someone who weighs an average of 150 pounds. Starting out, this can be exhausting, if you are just beginning, try each move for 30 seconds versus a minute and build yourself up.

Remember, you can customize it to your needs. If you can’t do planks, do push ups or sit ups. If you can’t do jumping jacks, walk in place.

If you need to take a break, take a break! It’s ok!

Work out: 5 rounds x 6 minute per round = 30 minutes

Each round includes: 

  • Jumping Jacks = 1 minute
  • Planks= 1 minute
  • Squats= 1 minute
  • Wall squat= 1 minute
  • Standing lunge= 1 minute
  • Kettle bell swings= 1 minute (Use a dumbbell if you don’t have a kettle bell)

Take a pizza my heart

Let me preface this by saying dinner was so easy to make and Hubby approved ::two thumbs up::

I introduce to you my cheat clean dinner for the week…drum roll please!!!!

*Tortilla pizza*

PhotoGrid_1453429892375

Be still our hearts… friends, our pizza days are not over…just modified.

As you get to know me, you’ll see I focus on high protein-low carb meals. Carbs have always been a big problem for me. Unfortunately they don’t go straight to my ass, more like my stomach and thighs 😦 Ok, less about me and more about this pizza.

One Mission tortilla= 6 carbs Trader Giotto’s Rustica sauce = 4 carbs per 1/2 cup (trust me, you won’t need to use that much for one slice) and zero carbs for cheese and Hormel turkey pepperoni. Max carbs for this meal is 10 grams.

Here’s what you got to do:

Preheat oven to 350 F

Spray your baking sheet with cooking spray

Lay your heavenly wrap on the sheet

Spread sauce, cheese, and pepperoni on top (remember, you can substitute with any topping or no topping at all…ain’t nothing wrong with the ol’ reliable cheese and sauce)

Pop it in the oven to desired crispiness. Personally, the crispier the better. I love the crunch! – This was about 10 min.

Serve with a side salad and I’d say you got yourself a gourmet Italian dinner 😉
