Russian Recipe Pumpkin Dessert

Oct 2, 2011 by

The other day I was talking to my friend and she recommended I try her grandmother’s recipe. There is only a few ingredients and you won’t be slaving by the stove all day ( my kind of recipe ;), it is very simple to make and it’s wont spoil your healthy eating. The only hard time I was having is taking the skin off the pumpkin and then shredding it, which made a mess, but end result was totally worth it.

400 Reps Let’s Go!

Sep 29, 2011 by

Today’s workout was a lot of fun and I went through it without taking any breaks between rounds. This type of workout I call ” The Sneak Upon You Later Workout “, it seems fairly easy to do cause I kept the reps pretty low ( this way you don’t hit failure ), but you will be very very sore about 2 hours after completing this workout. I was using my 8 lb medicine ball, but you can also use a dumbbell. This workout is a cardio mixed with upper body resistance, legs & buns, and of course 🙂 abs. I will share my time at the end of the post.

I am back with a new workout! Since it’s bee a week since I’ve worked out, I thought a great butt kicking cardio as well as some mix of resistance is exactly what I needed for my first workout back. This workout is a circuit and there is only 2 rounds, but don’t get too relaxed because by the end of the first round you will catching your breath. Besides a great cardio, this routine includes toning for the legs, butt, abs and a little bit of arms.
