Does anyone else get uninspired about what to blog about sometimes? Ever feel like you sit down and your mind is blank? I call this my – Too Comfortable-Sitting-Vegging-On-The-Couch-Mode. Gotta get out of this habit – so easy to get into! They say to create a habit it takes 3 weeks, hmmm, so I’m thinking the 3 weeks left in April are my 3 weeks to turn my bad habits back into good ones!
Last weekend I catered the Grand Opening of Royally Fit Fitness Boutique in Bowmanville, owned and operated by Ashley Dale Roy – who has been my bootcamp instructor and general ass kicker on and off over the last few years.
To combat my non-committal to a topic and laziness this week and in an effort to get my ass off the couch (somehow I fell off the exercise wagon lately) – I am challenging myself OUT loud and announcing it to you (harder to get out of the commitment this way). I’ve decided to make a commitment to get my ass out to at least 3 of the classes offered at Royally Fit. There are 4 that I want to try this month, but I need to make it out to 3 this week (or in a time pinch make it out to 2 and go for a run for a 3rd workout).
The classes that I want to take are: Kettlebell Ass Kicker for cardio, strength & flexibility, Flashdance for fun my core, and stress relief, Piloga for abs and stretching and UGI Fit for a full on total body workout in 30 min (plus time for stretching). Which ones would YOU do?
So there I said it – now I have to do it! Right? Right! Anyone want to join me?
After a workout – its aways a good idea to snack on something with a protein and a carb (no a hamburger does not count!!) Here is my Get Your Ass off the Couch to get the Humus reward recipe.
- 1 Can of chick peas, retain 1/2 of the water in the can, drain and rinse the rest of the chick peas
- 2 TB Tahini
- Juice of 2 lemons
- 1 TB minced garlic
- 1/4-1/2 tsp salt
- black pepper to taste
- chipotle chili powder OR 1 chipotle chili & 2 TB adobe sauce
- raw carrots for dipping
In a food processor (I would refrain from using a mini processor as you may burn out the motor), add all ingredients and process for about 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Adjust seasoning as needed. Cover and refrigerate, for a 1/2 hr -1 hr before serving to let the flavours come together. (Recommended but not necessarily). Will keep in the fridge for a few days. Serve with raw veggies, pita’s or crackers! Also great in a sandwich with some red onion. enJOY,
