One of the beauties of working from home (on the rare occasion I have to do so) is that I can squeeze in a lunch-time workout at the gym. Today’s routine consisted of the following: 2 mile run on the treadmill, weight lifting (chest and arms), sit-ups and back-ups on the stability ball, 60 pushups and 500 jump ropes. I am especially proud of the jump ropes–I did 5 sets of 100 and in between did the pushups. I felt very good doing this until I saw the really skinny but buff woman nearby doing a crazy routine that consisted of a kettle ball upper body exercise, pushups and mountain climbers. I will admit she scared me. But that’s ok because I bet she couldn’t do 500 jump ropes!
I came home and made a delicious smoothie. Ingredients below.
Blueberry-Peach Cobbler Smoothie
1/2 cup ice
1 cup orange juice
1 cup lowfat vanilla yogurt
1 cup frozen peaches
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 scoop vanilla protein mix (25 grams protein)
Mix in blender and enjoy. Yields 16 ounces. Add more peaches or fewer blueberries to bring out a peachier taste.
