Monday back to school

Well today was our first day back to school in 2 weeks. That means back to my regular workout and eating schedule. I was very excited to get back in the gym!! Just so happens it was chest and tricep day, my favorite day!!!
Chest/tris
6×3-8reps bench press
3×5-8 push press
3×5-8 dumbbell bench press (50pounds)
Wide push ups after every bench set.
As for triceps I did a series of tricep pull downs, tricep dips, and close grip push ups.
All in all today’s workout was very successful and I’m looking forward to post on my leg day workout next!

Gummy Bites

RECIPE:
3 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1/3 lemon/lime juice
Optional: extract

Mix gelatin and juice in pan over a medium low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Put in a pan. Put in freezer for about 15 minutes. Use spatula to pull out. This will be in a sheet that you can now cut to desired shapes.

I doubled this recipe. I used 2/3 cup of the naked juice “berry veggie”. Start with 1/4 cup water and 6 tablespoons gelatin. Mix in saucepan until dissolved. Add berry juice, juice of 1/2 lemon, 4-6 drops of doTerra lemon essential oil. I tasted this as I was heating the mixture until it was to the taste and tartness desired. This is really important step. If it doesn’t taste good before it gels it won’t after.

“Great Lakes unflavored gelatin is an excellent source of protein full healthy amino acids. 1 tablespoon of gelatin provides 6 grams of protein. Your kids will love this. Here is the link to buy it

Benefits of Coconut Oil

As the Book, “Eat Fat to Lose Fat,” reveals, using this nutrtious fat can help you lose weight.  But it has other health benefits as well.  It can be consumed as a supplement or for frying.  It is also a great addition to a smoothie.  It helps slow the sugar/carbs into your blood stream and is a long burning fuel for the body.

5 other great things about coconut oil:

1. Antibacterial

2. Antiviral

3. Helps control appetite; satiating

4. Easy to digest

5. Helps with brain health.

A medical doctor treated her husbands Alzheimers by giving him coconut oil.  Truly amazing.  Watch the YouTube here:

 

200 squats a day!

A month before my “big” weekend at whistler where I planned on taking a private lesson on snowboarding I really worked the butt and thigh area. I was thinking if I am going to make it an entire day doing something I never do, I don’t want to cut the lesson short due to muscle failure and complete exhaustion. Well it worked! My only sore muscles were my forearms. I was holding on tight to my instructor. Lol

Here is a great blog for a lofty goal. http://www.twohundredsquats.com/.
Have a great squat day, Lisa

Pinterest

Here is my favorite Pinterest Board:  Holistic Health …I have collected links to so many awesome nutritional ideas from around the world..Like “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie.”  That is a book and youtube presenation by a doctor/veterinarian.  He is a great speaker.  He said that the average age that doctor’s live is well below the average age of the average couch potato.  How can that be?  Listen to his youtube.
