your new body by summer...

in the city there are many workout options. there are Pilate centers, yoga centers, gyms almost on ever other block, boot camps for all sorts of different things, liposuction centers...you name you got it. out here we have to do things a little differently. first off you have to deal with land, the mowing alone is upper and lower body strengthening, add a 20 pound kid on your back and viola! added calorie burner. second, see that pipe? it's an irrigation pipe, yup that's my pipe, and that pipe doesnt move itself. once again you guys do squats, i move pipe. third, yes those goats, here's your cardio, (and incidentally anger management put into action). most likely those...goats (demons if you will) will get out at least once A DAY, the chasing and cornering and then dancing around back and forth to capture the...goat, will totally give you an all over workout and cardio, you couldn't pay any instructor to replicate. and lastly, ( i didn't have time to go out and take a picture of the town) if you don't buy everything you need at the store by 7pm you will be out of luck till the next morning. (i would say that about 7:02 the main street in town looks like a ghost town, no cars on the road, and no one to be seen. (everyone dealing with household duties and maybe moving some pipe for the last time of the day) so i've learned i don't buy any snacks that are super tantalizing to my taste buds (usually anything with a hint of chocolate in it) and when oh say 8:30 rolls around you are out of luck for any temptations that will add pounds to the thighs...i admit a little aggravating, but soo worth it if you want to get your beach or pool body ready by summer.
here's a recipe for the best salsa ever!!!
20 roma tomatoes
1 bunch of each: green onions, and cilantro
2 green peppers (seeded out)
1 jalapeno (or 2 depending on the size)
2 salsa mixes (1 hot, one mild) you can find these packets in the veggi section usually
1 sweet vidalia onion
garlic salt and lemon pepper to taste
4 avocados (with lemon juice over them so they don't brown)
cut everything in the food processor, but make sure you do the cilantro by itself or it wont cut up small enough.
happy work out and salsa eating!
oh yeah and i forgot to mention, this recipe makes a ton of salsa, so if you make some just call me and i'll bring the tortilla chips! (and the diet dr pepper)

See, but that is why you look so good and the rest of us are struggling! :)

Nice workout plan! ;) So much more efficient than wasting your time at a gym. I noticed on the side that your cardio goats may be going away?

Great exercise plan! At least you are motivated to get it done everyday! How do you find enough time in the day to get everything done?!

How is your family holding up?

So, I might not be here over the Memorial Day weekend! I think I am going up to ID with Emily to see Audra.

oh that's too bad, we'll be thinking of you when we're having a rip roaring good time though!

oh yeah and i keep TRYING to get rid of the cardio goats but everyone is smart enough NOT to buy them or take them off my hands for free, i'm sure i'm going to upset someone from PETA with all my hate talk of the goats, but if someone from PETA wants them, then i'll give them i'm address and they are welcome to take them off my property, if they aren't currently roaming somewhere.

This is a really cute post. I think it also has a good message. Sometimes we don't really think we are exercising when we really are. It doesn't ahve to be in a gym so everyone should feel good about all they really do.

The salsa recipe looks really good!
