Asian Chop Salad

I really don’t like bulgarian split squats.

Not to brag or anything… but I have some pretty impressive lower body strength. There’s nothing like a nice set of bulgarian’s to make me feel like a complete weakling. My poor booty… my poor quads… and by “poor” I obviously mean “lucky” (insert gratitude practice here) because even though they hurt, they are getting stronger!

booty

Workin on my quadzillas.

 

Do this:

5 mins on, 1 min rest. 4 rounds. Alternate between Workout 1 and Workout 2

Workout 1
100 m sprint
12 heavy kettlebell swings (heavy for you, but not so much that you start using your lower back to swing)
12 lemon squeezers (sit-ups for beginners, v-ups for advanced)

Workout 2
60 jump rope passes (doubles for all you BA’s out there)
6 burpees (with a true push up, none of this flopping around nonsense)
12 bulgarian split squats (6 on each leg)

Now for some food!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
.
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
.
Be back later!
