Ok, yesterday I did Jillian Michael's Shred It video. No pic because you can get her at Walmart for Pete's sake and I don't feel like getting up. It is a kettlebell workout, which, if you have never used them, they are pretty intense. I bought one of course, 10 lbs. For this 30 minute non-stop workout that may have been overshooting a bit, she recommends 3-8 pounds, but she doesn't SAY that on the cover. There is a beginner's and an advanced, so I did the beginner's. I recommend the tutorial, as it is not as easy as it looks and you could get injured pretty quickly. You can also use a dumbell, so you may want to start there. There was one exercise that took me from a standing to a laying position and back up again all the while holding the kettlebell over my head. Yeah, I bombed that. This was a good all over workout and I would recommend it on the rotation for beginners looking for a challenenge. Anxious to see what the advanced is all about! Recommendation B+
This weekend I made tri-tip and roasted root vegetables. I will post in the recipe section. It was a PERFECT meal, healthy and easy. The guys went on and on about it. Tri-tip is not sold commercially, but if your grocer cuts their own meat, you can ask them for it. It reduces to about a third when you cook it. 2.5 lbs fed 4.
The snow has finally melted, but we managed to make a 3 headed, 3 handed snowman. Samuel's idea.
