Hi guys! How’s your day going? I’m so happy you liked the barre burner! I’m SUPER STOKED because I found out a method to upload videos faster to YouTube, so I can post workouts more often. My last barre burner took about 3 days to upload (and multiple tries!!!) and this one: 40 minutes. I watched a tutorial online to compress and video and to my total shock, it worked. Yeahhhh.
Livi and I spent the morning walking around the zoo. The animals are wonderful and everything, but I have to say that the highlight is the kettlecorn. We go crazy for it 🙂
Some eats from lately:
A batch of banana almond muffins.
My new favorite vinaigrette:
(about 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 teaspoon Dijon, 1 teaspoon honey and salt and pepper to taste)
It was originally created to go with this kitchen sink salad I made to take over to Whitney’s house, along with some red wine. The salad was spinach, carrots, blueberries, hearts of palm, walnuts, raspberries and cucumber. It sounds like a bizarre combo, but worked out nicely: an awesome balance of savory, crunchy, tangy and sweet.
A batch of quinoa meatballs from the Choosing Raw cookbook.
We had them for dinner last night -Livi loved them, too!- and I made a salad with them today. Spinach, sheep feta, quinoa balls, marinara and fresh basil. We’ll definitely be making them again!
Some exciting news: I have the opportunity to do a video interview with Tony Horton (!) and would love to hear if there are particular questions you’d like me to ask. I’m a huge fan of his and even though I haven’t done the P90X workouts, I’ve been able to work out live with him at the IDEA conference. He’s hilarious and extremely motivating. I love his laid-back, fun, but “I’m going to destroy your muscles” coaching style.
Here’s what I have for questions so far:
-What a typical day of eating looks like for him. (I think I heard him mention at last year’s IDEA conference that he follows a Paleo-esque diet.)
-What’s his current favorite “get hyped!” workout song.
-What does he recommend to do if someone only has 20 minutes to work out.
-His top 5 fitness and healthy living tips.
Please let me know if you have anything else you’d like me to include! I’m excited to post the video of his responses 🙂
Have a great night!
