Hey friends. Happy Wednesday. What has everyone been up to? I’m just trying to push through this week. Things have been up and down lately, but really I can’t complain.
Do you know what today is? National Running Day! Yes, I didn’t know a day was designated to all things running until last week… haha :o. I’ve pledged to run 8 miles in honor of this celebratory day! It has been a great morning so far!!
Today I have two things to share with you-
1.) What I Ate Wednesday
2.) A Workout for all of you to try at home. All you need are some dumbbells, sneakers, water, and be ready to SWEAT!
What I Ate Wednesday
Thank you Jenn, as always, for hosting.
Instead of sharing meals this Wednesday, I thought I would
share confess to you my admiration obsession for fruit! Do you obsess over a certain food??
They are natural nutrients for our bodies. People may argue the sugar content, but that is natural sugar and way better then the additives in certain foods.
Did you know fruits include….
Potassium- helps to maintain healthy blood pressure
Fiber- helps you feel full and the process of your digestive system
Vitamin C- helps heal those cuts and wounds. –> A klutz like me definitely needs this
Folic Acid- helps the body form red blood cells
Strawberries, oranges, bananas, kiwi, black raspberries, blueberries—they are all so good 🙂
I think what I love about them is their freshness (especially during spring/summer at local farmers’ markets) and sweet taste! There is something that they have that no one else ever will. Sorry veggies :(.
So enough talk, let’s just get to the pictures of how I incorporate them into my daily meals, shall we?!!
Homemade Fruit Bowls [my guilty pleasure]
As A Snack
Feel free to try this when you are looking to switch up your regimen at the gym. It will surely get your whole body moving and make you sweat! Don’t forget to listen to your body throughout and take rest when needed. Most importantly, don’t forget to hydrate afterward and stretch <—talked about this on the blog yesterday 🙂
How do you feel about fruit? Love it or hate it?
Do you have a food that you love to eat every day? Anything especially during these summer months?
What is your favorite way to sweat?
