Last night, I taught my cycle 45 spinning class and we did this workout:
Warm Up 5 minutes
Sprints 7 min:
Hills and Jumps 10:
The one thing I don’t like about teaching classes in the evening, is that I am literally starving by the time I am done and I cannot wait to get home to eat dinner.
I bought a bulb of fennel while I was grocery shopping and had yet to use it. Last night was the night. Fennel can be intimidating, but it is really easy to use!
I started out by cutting off the top green part so that I just had a round bulb at the end. I then cut the bulb into smaller pieces that ended up looking kind of like celery. Fennel has a very licoricy smell and taste to it when raw. I would always hear Giada on the food network talk about the “licoricy” smell of fennel, and now I know what she was talking about!
I then sprayed a pan with nonstick cooking spray and tossed the Fennel with some spud spice and sauteed it until tender. To complete my meal I added shrimp to the fennel to cook for a couple of minutes, and prepared quinoa on the side.
The meal took a total of about 25 minutes including prep, and had a slightly “fancy” feel to it! Brian said this meal was a keeper.
After dinner, Brian and I spent much of the night working on wedding plans, and we will be spending much of today on wedding plans too! For wedding planning fuel, I made myself a super green smoothie:
I was also able to fit in a quick workout that I saw on Julie’s blog. And I added in 8 minute abs at the end!
Each exercise should be performed for one minute, and then one minute rest before moving on to the next exercise.
