Get Fit at Whole Foods

Tuesday‘s exercise: the Get Fit with Catra workout (went with Jill) consisted of…

  • 10 standing lunges
  • 10 walking lungues
  • 10 pushups
  • 1 lap around the park (< quarter mile?)

Repeat 3 times.

We also walked to and from the park, so I’d add at least another quarter mile to that. It took about 40 minutes total. I think my time for the 3 cycles was about 10 minutes, but we did stretching before and I’m also counting the walking time. During the day I walked a lot (shopping) and I think I did some of the DVF exercises in the morning.

Wednesday I did the Diane von Furstenburg exercises again. I love these. They are so simple. I did most of them while watching “Faces of Culture“, a video series that I have to watch for one of my anthropology classes. I also walked 2 miles – 1 mile each way to and from the grocery store.

Here are some foods I’ve been meaning to share. Kabocha with goat cheese (why not? It works with parm).

A “grilled” (waffle iron grill) sandwich with a chicken burger from Trader Joe’s, alfalfa sprouts (alfa-alfa is what Bobby calls these), and some cheddar. Lightly buttered on the outside for crispiness.

A classic bowl of oat bran. Oat bran, ground flax, coconut flakes, protein powder, cinnamon, vanilla, salt (always). Topped (post-picture) with real maple syrup. Real maple syrup appears on all of my oat bran bowls now. It is a staple. This bowl was put in the freezer for 10+ minutes after cooking.

Do you have a “staple” food? Mine is certainly kabocha, all the darn time. Others that make frequent appearances include oat bran, homemade ketchup, and stir-frys. Nut butters go in and out, depending on how I feel. Recently I have been rather obsessed with burdock as well.

    Carrots are my staple. I go through a 10 lb. bag a week. Gosh, that really is bad.

    I think yogurt is definitely my staple. Just plain, nonfat yogurt…Greek if I’m feeling rich. Maybe I should follow in your and Mama Pea’s footsteps and switch my staple food to a veggie!

    The workout sounds great! And I love your “waffled” sandwich!

    I just realized that I really love oats. I didn’t have any yesterday, and I missed them all day…

    i thought you made a chicken sandwich using waffles when i looked at that picture – ha!

    oatmeal is definitely a staple of mine. greek yogurt, almonds, and spinach/kale/swiss chard too. i rarely go a day without all of those!

    pumpkin and goat cheese is one of my favorite combinations – i bet it was amazing with kabocha!
