Peanut butter....no?

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I found this spark recipe: Peanutty Fruit Salad. I was excited to make it, but nervous about bringing a nut product into my home due to allergies of other family members. I was at Festival Foods and found a product called Wowbutter. Unlike other pho-peanut butter products, it does not need to be stirred or refrigerated, and it DOES taste like real peanut butter.

Oh, yea. The recipe is excellent. I added extra yogurt and created a beverage-like treat.

Good stuff.

  


Swing set

Monday, April 23, 2012

I just read that swinging on a swing set burns about 200 calories per hour. I need to start giving myself credit for all the playground time I've been racking up since the weather warmed up.

More chair aerobics

Saturday, April 21, 2012

When I did the chair aerobics routine today, I paused the video each time Coach Nicole began a final count and did 20 more reps of that movement. I didn't time it, but I'll give myself credit for 15 cardio mintues.

What a great way to work up a sweat.

Do you think I will wear out the seat of my work out clothes prematurely?

  


Chair aerobics rule!

Thursday, April 19, 2012

I did my first cardio chair aerobics video (my son was busy with daddy). It was a great work out and easy to adjust to make it more difficult or even longer.

Give it a try!

(I wanted to 'favorite' the video, but did not know how.)

Considering chair aerobics

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

I am walking a lot (putting all of my eggs in one basket). At some point, some sort of overuse injury might be a possibility. Branching out into chair aerobics seems like a good option. Perhaps twice a week.

Will my young son help me do chair aerobics? It is worth a shot. If not, I'll have to get my exercise after he goes to bed.

My goal is to try a chair aerobic video this week.

P.S. I have not touched a Girl Scout cookie since my last post. Thanks for the support! emoticon
