I think we might need to move her. Today is another Holiday. It’s Bahamian Labor day. Last Monday was a Holiday too. A three day work week sounds good, doesn’t it?
Anyway, today I wanted to share a little Food and Fitness. I love how Jess does her Foodie Fridays and Lindsay does her Fitness Fridays, and because I love both, I will share a wee bit of both. Thanks for letting me hop on the bandwagon ladies.
Let’s talk Food.. and maybe some wine.
Wednesday we were invited to a 2 hour wine tasting at the Mahogany House. We sampled about 4 different red wines and learned a ton about each one. This only made me love wine more. I love learning about the regions, the grape, the vineyard, the texture, clarity, etc. of wines. I think a certain someone was also intrigued. Just look at that concentration.
I’ve also been cooking up a lot of one pot wonders. It’s cheaper, its easy, and it can feed the masses.
Here’s a good one. Gluten Free Cajun chicken sausage with zucchini, garlic, chickpeas, smoked barbeque sauce, tomato, and a little paprika/cayenne to top. I served this with gluten free herbed couscous and a papaya salad. Yes, local goodness on that papaya.
The best thing about these are the leftovers. Perfect for post ride lunch today. Just throw in a corn tortilla. Delish!
Now about that Fitness…. mine has been a work in progress as I mentioned before. But yesterday I took the plunge. The plunge into the pool that is. I did not do the group workout but I did swim, at my own speed, and with a little help from the hubs.
For those of you who like a solid swim workout. Here was their Main Set.
SWIM Warm up 1000 straight with every 4th non-free
6×200 (1-3 band only at 75% on 30 sec rest, then progress 4-6 as 75%, 80%, 85% effort with 20 sec rest.
3 x (12×25 fast followed by 50 easy with 1.5 min rest)
Set 1 band only on 30
Haha, swim lingo at it’s finest!
Now we are off for a land workout.. hitting up the gym at Albany for a little strength. Love how empty is! I know, spoiled.
TRX Strength and Core:
20 single leg squats (on each leg)
10-20 push up and tucks
1 minute plank
Repeat for 15-20 minutes straight
K, that’s it. I’m pooped. Let’s go enjoy this Bahamian Labor day and not labor anymore.
Cheers to Friday Friends!
