Thirty minute Thursday er….Fitness Friday?

by lindsay cotter on November 4, 2011

I spent most my day taking last minute orders and shopping for more Healthy Bite ingredients. I think it’s safe to say my Thirty Minute Thursday was spent walking grocery stores. Let’s call it steady state cardio, mmmm k?

I think the real workout will come this weekend. I have one loving Healthy Bite customer who actually wants me to make AS MANY AS POSSIBLE for her before we head off to New Zealand.

I’m gonna try to maker her a 3 month supply, really! I think that just might pay for part of my ticket, haha. Needless to say, my workout this weekend will rolling away in the kitchen.

This is when I wish I had this kitchen……pretty.

Okay, moving on. Another Part of our day was spent at the doctor. The hubs and I both see a wonderful Applied Kinesiologist (Dr. Weine) at Infinity Wellness. who has helped us with our body imbalances (digestive, muscular, hormonal, etc.). Today I wanted to give you a little glimpse into what James’ session looks like. Take a look at how she is treating the underlying issues of his knee injury, muscle testing and all.

And a little picture of my acupuncture treatment….whoa tummy!

I know this post is late so I’m going to consider it a Fitness Friday as well. Let’s go with that.

What was your Thirty minute Thursday….er Fitness Friday?

Do you consider shopping and baking cardio, right?!

Cheers to Sarcasm!

Haha you are so fantastic!!! I can’t believe you are making her a 3 month supply. That is amazing, as are your rocking abs in that picture!

I want that kitchen, can we be roommates (in a fabulous house of course) with that EXACT kitchen when you get back from New Zealand, please :-)

Double cheers to sarcasm, baking/shopping cardio sessions and late night posts! :) A 3 month supply is going to be mighty impressive. I would come “workout” with you if we lived closer.

woah, how beautiful is that kitchen? dreeeeeeeam. Ouch needles in the belly look scary – I had acupuncture just before I gave birth… apparently it helps get things moving, don’t know if it worked, but relaxing all the same. Shooping/baking totally count as cardio – I think they are the only form of cardio in my day :)

It is relaxing, i agree. Definitely has helped my stomach. We need to do some “cardio” together sometime. I’d like that!

i’ve done disjuncture, but the kineseology sounds fascinating

if i can keep myself from eating what I”m cooking then I know my arm often gets tired from chopping…so maybe… :)

Dude baking and shopping are TOTALLY cardio, especially when there’s a sale at a store haha ;)

Tessa @ Amazing Asset November 4, 2011 at 11:24 am

Yes, grocery shopping and baking is certainly a fantastic workout! I have found myself walking around new whole food/tjs stores for err…hours before! Sad? Maybe but I like to see the new products they have :)
I have wanted to try acupuncture… some day perhaps!

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) November 4, 2011 at 11:37 am

Definitely cardio and muscle toning too with all the squatting getting baking pans or items off the bottom shelf at the store. I’ve always wanted to get acupuncture. I have a book on reflexology that I do for Tony sometimes (obviously very basic stuff), but it’s amazing how you can feel things in certain areas when you apply pressure to a completely different part of the body.

Oh and I want that kitchen too! Have fun making healthy bites! I would love to have been able to help you! xoxo

I would love a big country kitchen like the one you posted — really I just want a big kitchen with a big island in the middle — we have one of those galley/hallway type kitchens for now and I’d love to have more room!

Friday is my rest day but yesterday I did a quick 3 miles on the treadmill along with some upper body/core strength workout.

Wow that doc looks amazing! Maybe I could sell my first born to see her? JK!!! I love that kind of stuff, so interesting!!!!! That kitchen is so beautiful. I spend almost all of my time standing in the kitchen either doing school with the kids or cooking, or CLEANING. So I’d say cooking is cardio!!!

Yes indeed shopping is cardio. Infact I am way more exhausted after a full day shopping with my Mom than I am after running a marathon. Make sure you fuel well for your long day of cooking and shopping k. :)

Reply

Grocery shopping can definitely count as cardio! And don’t forget you have to drag evertything into the car, so you’re also doing weight lifting! :P

I used to get accupuncture to help with my headaches. That helped a lot.

Now I want to have a kitchen like that … ;)

Applied Kinesiology looks very interesting. You know me, I am totally into homeopathic treatments and I have tried many. Maybe I’ll put this on the list : )

Have fun making Healthy Bites this weekend!
