Meet the amazing Cindy!!!
You MUST make this! I seriously can not stop eating it!
When the whole spiralizer, zoodles thing became popular I did a serious eye roll. I don't like extra steps at all. But, I changed my tune!! This stuff is AMAZING and not at all hard to make.
I personally like this spiralizer-
You can get less expensive versions but this had great reviews and I agree.
Zucchini Pasta Pesto:
4 Large Zucchini
1/2 cup pesto (make your own favorite recipe or buy your own fresh version)
1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half
Fresh Basil for garnish
Spiralize the zucchini. Lightly salt zoodles in a colander and let sit for 20 minutes (or 4 hours if you forgot about them and left home to run 1 million errands). Remove excess liquid and combine with tomatoes and pesto. Mix up, top...
This is a super quick, easy and refreshing salad perfect for summer.
I don’t know about you all, but picnics can be DANGEROUS grounds for consuming a few too many calories. I like to bring something safe as a dish to pass and this is a GREAT option. PLUS it only takes a few minutes to put together, who wants to spend time in the kitchen when it is gorgeous outside?!?!
This recipe serves 4 but you could easily double or triple it.
4 cups cubed watermelon
6 Fresh mint leaves chopped
1-2 Limes juiced depending on how “zingy” you like it 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
Place in a bowl, stir a few times and DING you have a super refreshing summer salad!
Hope you all enjoy this as much as I do!!
This is a great cardio work out that you can do by yourself, or with a friend or group!! You can be creative with the timing; here are a couple of examples:
Set a timer for an allotted amount of time (maybe 10-15 minutes) and see how many sets you can get through
Have a contest with someone else to see who can reach a set number first
See how quickly you can get through a specified number of sets.... Etc.
There are 5 exercises that you will perform in each set.
Set #1 - do 1 repetition of each of the 5 exercises. Set #2 - do 2 reps of each exercise
Set #3 - do 3 reps of each exercise
And so on.....
High Knees – think marching in place, but making sure your knee comes up about hip height, can be done fast or slow
Tantrum - lying face down, with arms straight out in front and legs straight behind, brace the abs, then alternate raising opposite arm and legs, so it looks like a small child having a tantrum on the floor and you...
Ready, Set, Run!!!
Many people looking to get in shape, and/or lose weight often decide they’ll start running. Here are some tips on how to get going and stay going without injuring yourself.
Start slow! Seriously, if you just start running out of the gate, you are putting yourself at a very high risk for shin splints, and/or other very painful injuries that will only set you back. It’s very easy for runners to jump in too fast and over-train.
Much like boot camp, or any other exercise regiment, it is important to ease your way into the habit. I recommend starting with walking and getting used to that for a week or two. If you’re getting a bit antsy, I would do an interval walk/run. Walk for 2-3 minutes, then maybe 30-60 seconds run/jog, then back to walking for a few minutes. Interval training is a fantastic way to build endurance without injuries. Eventually you can increase the run time, and decrease the walking.
Make sure to take the time to warm up and...
Where did you come from? - I have always struggled with my weight but was never able to stick with something long enough to be able to see any life changing results. When I first started at Tall Trainer I was eating horribly and not exercising at all. I have an office/desk job so it didn't help that I sit all day at work but then get home from work and eat dinner and then sit on the couch all evening. I had reached the highest weight I had ever been and felt like I was being pushed into a corner and didn't know where to go. I would always tell myself "starting on Monday, I will start a diet and start working out". It sounded like a good idea in my head but typically it never happened once Monday rolled around. If by chance, it did start, I would only last a short few days. Anytime that I would lose weight, I would quickly gain it all back plus some. I knew what I had to do in order to keep the weight off but I did not have the will power to do this.
