Yesterday was a fabulous snowy day here in Boston. It was like Christmas morning when I woke up. I was so excited to see how much snow fell and if the storm was as big as the meteorologists were saying. Well… we got a lot of snow and we were buried! My car was completely covered and everything was closed because of the snowpolocalypse. My office, restaurants, the gym – everything.
Around lunch time Vinnie and I decided to venture outside, brave the snow and shovel out my car. It was really fun to go outside in the storm. There were no cars on the road due to the travel ban so the streets were clear of vehicles. But, there were so many people in the streets shoveling, sledding and exploring.
I got a decent workout from shoveling and walking around in the snow, but I really wanted to get a little something else in. I put together this Jumping Jack Workout that I could do in my apartment. Jumping jacks are great because they work your entire body and get your heart rate up. I paired jumping jacks with a bunch of other plyometric exercises and toning moves to make it a 30 minute total body workout. It ended up being a great workout and I got a great workout at home on this snowy day!
And… since it is Wednesday I thought I would share what I ate while snowed in. I have to say working from home is hard, I kept wanting to go into the kitchen and snack. After I had my giant smoothie I was pretty full and satisfied. It was the perfect treat to tie me over.
Mixed Berry Smoothie
1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries
1/2 cup of frozen strawberries
1 cup of OJ
1/4 cup of plain fat free yogurt
Eggs with Whole Wheat toast
Trail Mix from the bins at Whole Foods — this is my absolute favorite thing. I can’t go to Whole Foods without getting some.
Turkey meat taco with peppers, romaine lettuce, salsa, cheddar cheese and plain yogurt
That is all for now! I NEED to go curl up on the couch and watch some Scandal. Vinnie and I are into season 3 and can’t get enough. It is so good!
