Early Bird

I will be the first to admit it that 430 AM comes pretty early, but if you want to get it in, sometimes you have to be the first up. Kelly and I are taking turns doing the early morning workouts. The benefit of not working out that early is that coffee is already made.
Here is an easy true one egg omelette, that anyone could make. what u need, an egg, some vegetable filling, a little oil or spray,and a chunk of sarvecchio parm. I made it with out the cheese.
 When I don't consume salt, I like spice. Really I like spice all the time. But for what ever reason, while in the zone, I like it a little hotter. Plus consuming two jalapenos a day is 100 percent vitamin c.
Start by getting your non stick pan out, and know when to buy a new nonstick pan. If its sticking and it shouldn't be, place it under your seat of your car and wait for that road rage driver, and let it fly. Life's too short to be working with kitchen tools that are not right for the job.
Anyways, saute your veg mix, what I used today, 1/2 a small yukon potato, 1/2 jalapeno, 2 asparagus chopped, some extra Chile flake. once it is sauteed set it aside and begin to cook your egg.
The key to marking one egg omelette is low heat, and beat the egg really well. Crack the egg in a bowl, and add a little water like an 1 oz, then beat until frothy. pour the egg mixture into your non stick pan and swirl around the edges, but not all the way to the top. Cook on low heat for about two minutes, place the sauteed veg mixture in the center and gently roll the omelette on to a plate. It takes a little practice, happy rolling, Cheers People! Now, go work out!

I was maybe a little brash in my delivery in using the word dickdo in some serious weight loss action. I will be more user friendly, so when u like it, people won't think you are a perv, although most of my friends are. Oh well. Any who, If you really want to trim down, stay with me and try it, it works. You will see results right away.  Here are some other pointers, or things to try, or stuff I do.

- when you are in the zone, when i say limit, it means I do not try to consume knowing that it contains that ingredient. so no salt sugar or alcohol
- no alcohol( I know, trust me) big thumbs down! But you cant lose wait when ur popping barley pops left and right.
-pick times of day that you can exercise. even if its early or late, get it in.
-maximum weight loss 212-your age x.75  example: 212-36(my age)=176x.75=132 So, I want to work out at a heart rate at 132 for at least 30 minutes 4 times a week. 45 minutes will give you better results.
- invest in a heart rate monitor or watch that has it.
-u can weigh yourself everyday, but you should only take results once a week.
- For women, your weight will fluctuate with your cycle, along with your mood, cravings, and overall bitchiness. lol. Love You!
-Have good communication and develop a schedule of when you plan on working out and stick to it, share your ideas and workout schedule with your spouse. I know easier said than done!
- Have a food plan for the day
- Remember to eat healthy and smart before and after a work out.  I love Fluid Recovery after a hard work out or a long run. It really helps with stiffness, and soreness.Getting old sucks(not in a good way)

There's more, but I gotta get cooking! Here's Today's lunch. Cherrz People!

1 cup broccolini, 1 cup asparagus, 4 baby beets, 1/2 cup black beans cooked, 1 radish sliced, 5 slices jalapeno, 2 tablespoons pico de gallo, micro cilantro. Remember no salt!

Don't be a Dickdo

Don't be a Dickdo!

OK, face it its fun to eat and drink whatever, whenever you want. But all those calories are not going to burn them selves off. June 21st marks the first day of summer, and face it it not cool to be sporting a dickdo (when ur belly hangs out further than your dickdo).  So, its time to eat clean, exercise, and get in playn shape. So for the next couple of weeks I will help you all out with ideas, recipes, and a couple of fun things(I cant be too serious all the time) to lose that dickdo, or just trim down in general. Here are some things I'm doing...

-Limit sugar
-Work out 4 times a week(more if your schedule allows) at 75 percent of your max heart rate for 30 min(212-your age x .75= this is the heart rate you should be working out at for maximum weight loss
-Drink at least 120 ounces of water a day
-Limit salt
-Drink 1 tablespoon twice a day wheat grass (Amazing Grass) mix with juice a day (Miss u Todd and Brandy!)
-Walk/Run with your dog(if you have one)
-Green juice when ever u can
- In two days have lost 5.3 pounds(don't be impressed I have lots to lose, and days off I tend to find some of it back. Oppsie.

Here is an easy healthy salad for lunch or dinner, I admit this version is a little crunchy granola. If you want a little more flavor with out busting a button, lightly grate sarvecchio parm, or use a couple small pieces of feta, or goat feta. 6 stems black kale, thinly cut. 6 slices cucumber, 6 slices carrot, 1/2 cup white quinoa(cooked)and 1 tablespoon citrus vinaigrette. For vinaigrette, 1 orange peeled, 1/2 cup rice wine, a good squeeze of sriacha, 1 shallot a little honey, and salad oil or pure olive oil. add all ingredients except oil and puree in a blender, then slowly add oil.
