- 60 jumping jacks
- 10 real pushups (always a challenge for me!)
- 20 walking lunges
- 40 sidekicks (20 with each leg)
- 20 jumping squats (whoa, this got my heart goin’!)
- 1 minute plank
- 5 burpees
- 50 knee highs
This little routine was a nice change from my normal cardio. I always tell myself that I need to start incorporating more strength/toning exercises, but it never happens.
Fast forward through a few hours of reading, working on assignments and completing a presentation I have to give on emotional eating habits in children to when I took a trip to the grocery store, mostly out of boredom. A few items that I didn’t necessarily need somehow found their way into my basket, one of which was Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Fries. I had never had these before, so I was a little hesitant about the ‘spicy’ part, but they were the only kind they had annnd they were on sale. I was instantly excited about this purchase and started to thinking of ways to incorporate them into this evening’s dinner. When I was younger, I was a big fan of chili-cheese fries…I mean whats not to love about fries and melted cheese? Being a bit older, wiser and healthier, I decided to put a “grown-up” spin on one of my childhood favorites.
Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
Never tried the sweet potato/black bean combo? Its a must, the two flavors complement each other so well. And cheese, because cheese makes just about everything better in my opinion.
