Fitness: Budget Fitness, including stretching and core work. (Disclaimer: check with your doctor before… you know the drill). Exercises include the hip crossover, crunches, hand walk, pushups, planks, supermans, lunges,

Nutrition: Smoothies! Hooray! My recipe:

1 cup frozen berries

1/2 cup All Bran

2 tablespoons lowfat or fat free yogurt

1/4 cup nuts (walnuts or almonds)

1 tbsp honey

Blend it and serve it. 8 ounces is about 180 calories. You might want 1.5 servings to make a meal.

Self-Esteem: Commitment Card. Take a 3×5 index card and on each line, write one reason why you're getting fit this time, or write a reminder for a troubled area. Try to avoid using negatives like "don't" or "no." Try to frame this in its best light.

Episode Beta- Walking, Water, Words, and Fig

Filed under: Podcast, Show Notes — fatguygetsfit @ 2:29 pm

Show Notes

First, there's a technical glitch I didn't get edited out. After the Grasshopper Factory "audio logo," the theme music drowns me out. You don't miss much. I just say welcome back. Wait for the theme music to die, and the whole podcast sounds great. (Sorry, and that'll be fixed for next week).

Topics this week: Walking briskly, Water consumption, Watching our Words, and site review of Fig's Blog.
