Salads, Spinning & Squatting

Posted by CheapRunnerRhoda

I have been back on my salad craze again! They are so easy to do. I just buy a good lettuce mix, a bunch of different veggies, use leftovers from my fridge and voila! Yumminess!

Meatball Salad

This week it has been Meatball Salads. I had some homemade meatballs in my freezer so I took them out and cooked up the whole batch-enough to have salads for the week. I added some grated cheese, cherry tomatoes, canned corn, and salsa.

CRMichelle and I also decided it was time to head back to Spin class at the gym. This morning was the first time back in a very long time. I have to say, the first 10 minutes I was mad at myself for being there, but as I got warmed up and got into it, I was quickly realizing why I loved the class so much. It really makes you sweat! I would never go that hard for that long on a spin bike without being in the class. The instructors really do give you a good push!

Also, I think he really likes cheese-maybe, almost, but not quite, as much as I do!

Cheese Please!

Okay, so I am not loving this #sittogetfit challenge this month. I am trying to get them in everyday but the pictures I am getting suck! I hope all of you are having a better time with it! Don’t forget to post your pics on Instagram and send us your Instagram names so we can see your pics!

    Salads are the best! I love all the different things you can put in them! I've never tried a spin class before, but I really need to give it a try. It sounds so fun!
