Last night I dreamt about The Last Unicorn:
Does anyone else remember that totally awesome yet very sad movie? Wahhhhh! It made me cry as a kid AND as an adult, too!
10 Minute Strength Routine
I was on the yoga mat within 5 minutes of waking up. Here’s what I did:
- 10 leg lifts with V-crunches (each leg)
- 20 push-ups
- 100 bicycle crunches
- 10 plank to push-ups
Some of you have asked how to do leg lifts with V-Crunches and plank to push-ups. Here’s a little pictorial (I’m still in my PJs and have bed-head, sorry!):
Leg Lifts with V-Crunches
Lift one leg so it is 3 inches above the floor. Raise up so it is 90 degrees from the floor, crunching up at the same time.
Pretend like there’s an apple under your chin and keep your eyes on the ceiling to prevent neck strain. Do at least 10 reps and then switch to the other leg. I learned this move from the 30 Day Shred.
Plank to Push-Ups
Start in plank position.
With your left arm, push up so it is extended.
Next, push up with your right arm and hold in plank position for a count.
(My butt should be lower in this picture — a straight line). Hold in plank position for a beat and then lower yourself on your right arm and then left arm into plank position. Repeat, but start with extending your opposite arm this time. Repeat at least 10 times (this move is really hard!). Plank to Push-Ups is also a 30 Day Shred move.
I wanted something fun and different this morning, so I dug into the freezer and pulled out:
A kid’s breakfast to complement the kid movie I dreamt about last week! I had 1 of Amy’s Kitchen Toaster Pops, which are suppose to be like healthy pop tarts. But, these are healthy — only 150 calories a piece and made with all-organic and vegan ingredients.
They were really delicious, although I was expecting them to be larger.
I had 1 toaster pop plus a bowl of banana, blueberries, and 1/4 cup of Chobani Vanilla Yogurt.
Off to tackle the world! Have a GREAT DAY!
Wow, I seriously had no idea that Amy’s made toaster pastries!! That sounds sooo yummy. Must go hit up the grocery store soon. 🙂
Thanks for the strength move tutorial too! I can’t wait to try the plank to pushups (but I want to try the entire 30-Day Shred soon too, so maybe I oughta just wait and be patient about getting my ass kicked by one of Jillian’s moves)!
