Leg Day Monday: Seated Leg Press Machine

Mondays are made for legs. We are just starting our summer vacation here; what better way to keep in shape and moving this summer than working those gorgeous legs!!!

I’ve been demonstrating my favorite moves on the seated leg press machine and today is no different!! Having high foot placement on the seated leg press machine puts more emphasis on the glutes and hamstrings.

Good Eats: Stuffed Foil Wrapped Chicken Caprese

Whew!! What a long week. We are preparing to move 🙁 but before we do, I wanted to be able to break out our grill one more time in the comfort of my backyard. Since we are heading into the weekend, I decided to try something a little different. As I was looking for new meals, I came across these amazing foil wrapped dishes. I tried my own version of this particular recipe from The Wholesome Dish.

In my opinion, the addition of the vegetables really made the meal complete. I may have also been just a little bit thrilled that I didn’t actually have to cook any individual sides tonight.

Find this recipe and more on my Pinterest board!!

Upper Body and Core: Bridge & Chest Fly

Happy Wednesday!!!

I have another wonderful exercise that I want to share with you all today! Bridge & chest fly exercises are perfect to do home-especially if you are unable to make it to the gym and need something quick.

This bridge and chest fly exercise will tone and lift your butt, while working your chest and core.

To start:

Begin with lying on your back and getting into the standard bridge position. Keep your knees shoulder width a part and point your hips towards the sky. With your arms stretched out to the side begin by performing a chest fly. Keeping your arms straight (no bent elbows) bring your arms together and down again. Repeat this exercise 2-3 times (20 reps). Follow with the bridge chest press and tricep/bicep toners for a more intense workout.

Leg Day Monday: Seated Leg Press Machine

Happy Leg Day!!!

One of my favorite exercises on leg day is the seated leg press machine. Over the last few weeks I’ve been demonstrating various foot placements and their benefits. Today we are going to do the narrow stance.

 

The narrow stance is perfect for working those ABDuctors and the outer quad.

Good Eats: Tacos

My family is obsessed with tacos. We normally do tacos every Tuesday and fajitas on Fridays. It’s just a normal part of our routine, since both children are still heavily into the picky eater phase, I figured this type of consistency would be good for us.

Since beginning my journey I’ve been thinking of ways to keep the food I love but make them healthier. I’m so happy I came across Kim’s recipe for tacos on Kim’s Cravings.

I have started grating a few carrots and mixing it with cheese. No one was able to the tell the difference. Not even the Mr. This recipe is definitely going to be a mainstay for us for a while. Have a great weekend.

If you like this recipe or want to see more, feel free to check out my pinterest board. I have a great collection of recipes for the entire family!!

Upper Body & Core: The Chop

Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for another quick upper body & core workout. The chop is a wonderful little workout that you can do at home first thing in the morning or when winding down in the evening.

When sculpting those abs, ass and legs this is a wonderful workout to include. After warming up with light cardio for about 3 minutes complete this exercise as a part of a circuit workout for optimal training.

(After viewing the video I feel so off looking. I didn’t realize how hard it was to speak and record at the same time. Forgive my oddness.)
