Rocking It- Dough Dip, Moves and More

 

Today for lunch the boys and I rocked some of this healthy cookie dough dip (made with PB2). The boys had theirs with apple slices

(and a graham cracker- Karen called me out on my Facebook post). Smile

I had mine with some Flatout cinnamon crisps and apple slices. I also added a tablespoon of Naturally More (it was that kind of day).

I enjoyed it with an iced mocha (and a nice view).

Ha ha ha! Isn’t that appetizing?

So…

What would you have done if there was a little left over in the bowl?

Me too!

I’m glad I’m not the only one.

After lunch we rocked some strength training moves. I was inspired because I had taped an outdoor video the other weekend that I never posted and I needed a couple more moves to go with it.

I was also inspired because last night I found Joaquin doing push-ups in the dark corner of the family room (complete with the grunting sound). I’m pretty sure he was telling me he wanted to show off his moves again to all of you.

So today we attempted to make a quick video of a move for this short workout.

Here’s a couple great strength training moves. All you need is a set of medium dumbbells.

Click here if you want to read about the importance of strength training. The general recommendation is to incorporate resistance training 2-3 times a week. I could go on and on about the reasons to include resistance training, but because I’m “rocking” a little bit of a sore throat and a headache right now I’m keeping this short.

Better for you. Better for me.

If you’re limited on time, it’s best to do bigger moves that combine upper and lower body movements. Not only can you burn more calories while you do the exercise, they’re also more effective because they use multiple muscle groups at the same time. Lindsay posted a great total body movement workout last week for Tuesday Trainer. And heck, sometimes we’re just really pressed for time, right? (Story of my LIFE).

If you only have about 10-15 minutes you can do these 5 moves and pretty much get all your major muscle groups.

 

Here are the moves.

1. squat with alternating side leg lift and a shoulder press

2. pendulum lunges with bicep curl (video)

3. plié squat with tricep extension (video)

4. push-ups

5. reverse lunge with one-armed row (video)

 

I would do 20 of each move (with the lunges do 20 on each side) and go through the circuit 2-3 times. Or you could do each move for 1 minute and go through 3-4 times. The choice is yours.

Smile

Here are a couple videos of the moves.

 

Video 1 Notes:

I talk weird.

Please ignore my weenus. (I’ll wear different shorts next time.)

 

Video 2 Notes:

This one is pretty stinking funny.

Yes, I’m aware you can’t see my head.

You can’t really see it, but Judah head butts my crotch about 38 seconds in.

Joaquin’s hair. Enough said.

I hate my belly button. I need some belly button pasties. (Do NOT Google “belly button pasties”- not helpful at all.)

 

This next video was part of Tuesday Trainer.

Video 3 Notes:

Still sporting the weenus (this video was made the same day okay).

I totally understand if you’re jealous of the farmer tan. Ha ha!

 

Okay friends.

Time for bed.

      I know, right? I always love the workouts YOU post. Your circuits and plyometrics. We need to work out together one of these days (while the kids play- he he). :)

    YEA! Now i can workout with you every day of the week! :-) Great workouts!!

  3. 3

    I totally lick the bowl too, cmon who doesn’t. What a great example you are setting for your boys. I read that when you work out it is 80% likely your children will work out as well. I totally believe that. My kids & I are all riding our bike to a park later, it’s just an active lifestyle and I love knowing it’s just the norm for them.

      Good example of licking the bowl? ha ha! Love that you ride your bike with your kids. I can’t wait until they can ride beside me instead of pushing them. YOU are a great example for your kids and for all of us mommies. :)

    Loving all the Tuesday Trainer love…and I TOTALLY eat all of my kids food. THEY are the ones who lick the bowl, after I eat it. ;)

  5. 5

    That was my snack yesterday too! (It also ended with my licking the bowl. Duh.)

  6. 6

    I flew over your state yesterday ;) And I hope your race for Amelia goes well! I think it’s awesome what you have been able to do for her thus far :)

  7. 7

    Licking the bowl is the best move I ever taught my kids ;)
    Great videos!!!! Your boys are so cute!

    Oh my gosh, you are all kinds of awesome! I would totally have licked that bowl clean! Love the moves you shared. I did swing lunges this morning and my butt and quads are not loving me, but I am totally loving them after that. The boys are adorable! I miss working out with my kids. Since I workout in the morning and they go to school (10 and 13), we don’t get the time we used to before. I love summer time though since they will work out with me then!

      Sarena- I can’t wait until the boys are older and can actually wokr out with me rather than just run through my legs. ha ha! I have a love/hate relationship with lunges too! :)
      PS- I LOVE your blog!!!! :)

    Kristin, you are awesome!!! I love strength training too. Every time I see a woman who looks great like you I ask “what is it you do to look so good?” The answer always includes some form of lunges and squats with weights. It’s great to see you on your video to put a voice with your face! Once again, great food on your post, I love that you feed your children what you eat and I tried the broccoli slaw-it’s very delicious. Thank you for all of the ideas. Shauna

    PS. There was no hot sauce in this post!!! Sometimes I see one of your meals and I have to look closer because I’m not sure what’s on it and then I realize “oh yeah it’s the hot sauce she loves so much.!” Hahaha
