Hey there fellow Weeps (those who participate in WIAW, get it?)…haha…ahhhh, bomb.
Welcome to a new month and a new WIAW theme! Thank you to Ms. Peas and Crayons for this link-up! This month is about summer staples, which makes me think of 1. swimming, 2. being in shape for swimming, and 3. eating the right food to look good for swimming…..
So let’s begin with swimming!
Enter exhibit A…
Did you know you can burn about 200 calories by swimming for approximately 30 minutes (depending on your weight)? To put a food value on that, it’s a bit more than 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. Pretty cool, huh? I burn about 115 walking a mile on the treadmill at pace 4, incline 8, so in comparison, swimming is a lot more fun and you don’t sweat your fanny off!
Numero dos! But, you say, I want to look good first, go swimming later! Ahhhh, I concur. I went online last year while 6 months preggers to peruse Victoria’s Secret for a cute bikini and exited the site feeling rather inadequate, physically speaking. Tis muy importante to feel like you look good before getting into your bikini and doing a lap or two. Enter….this circuit!
Vegetarian, yet loaded with protein from quinoa, chickpeas, cheese, and eggs. I love this dish! I’ve started making it about once a week and look forward to it each time. Broccoli and spinach round out the vegetable angle, making it one healthy beast of a meal!
