Good morning! I’m loving my new schedule (and the fact that I can write a post in my pajamas while thinking up what exciting things I’m going to make for breakfast).
How have I been missing out on these?
Besides some of our recent videos,
(In case you missed them here they are)
we haven’t done any moves of the week recently so I thought it was time to reintroduce some workout moves.
One of my goals for 2012 is to work on my diastasis recti (a separation of rectus abdominis muscles away from the midline often caused by pregnancy) issues. My doctor told me that there really isn’t anything you can do besides getting surgery to repair the separation. I’m going to do my best to prove him wrong and come up with a program to do for a couple of months to see it it makes a difference. I’ll devote a whole post on that soon when I come up with the specific exercises I’m going to include, but for now I have two awesome core strengthening moves that you’ve got to try.
I thought I could get away with just one video, but Joaquin had other ideas.
These are not the best quality, but you can see how to properly do the moves. They can be done anywhere (that’s one of the reasons I love them). I don’t recommend doing the first one with a toddler on your stomach, but sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
Here you go.
Um, yeah, so after seeing these on the computer I’m really going to be on the lookout for a a better quality video camera. Yikes. Sorry friends.
In the first video I said we were going to play choo choo trains afterwards.
We got to play with a little something better.
Our friends at Chobani hooked us up!!!! We got a very special delivery last night. I love deliveries (especially edible ones).
I’m so excited to try out all these fun flavors. I already told Andrew and the boys that we could all share. I think I’ll hide the really good flavors for myself though. Does anyone else do that? Oh, um, me either. I was just kidding.
Anyway, instead of choo choo trains we did a little cho cho stacking.
I was impressed too.
And we played in the snow a bit.
I celebrated last night by making a variation of my Almond Vanilla STUFT Fro Yogurt.
We’ll call it
Cho-mazing STUFT Fro Yogurt
1 small container of Chobani plain nonfat Greek yogurt (or 1 cup)
1 serving vanilla sugar free jello pudding mix powder (8 grams)
sweetener of choice (optional)
1/2 cup thawed whipped topping
peanut butter or other nut butter (optional)
Combine yogurt with jello mix and additional sweetener if using. Carefully mix in whipped topping. Stir on nut butter of choice if using. Cover and let sit in freezer for 1-2 hours.
Instead of stirring in a nut butter I just put mine in an almost empty jar of Jif peanut butter before putting it in the freezer. When it came out it had this amazing peanut butter swirl in it.
You can’t see it, but there’s also a Vitatop underneath the big serving of yogurt. he he!
Thank you Chobani! Can’t wait to try the rest!
Oh and try those moves!
