4 child-spawns. 3 C-sections. 2 hernia surgeries with multiple incisions. That’s damn hard on a girl’s mid-section. But anyways, these are my abs. Here’s 20-seconds of test footage. Just getting comfortable with the idea of showing my abs in future workout vids. Heeeeeeeee.
How dare me unleash another egg recipe so soon after you just saw the delectable Steak & Eggs Quiche. What a wretched thing for me to do. But this latest egg dish right here is too damn beautiful & tasty to keep secret.
It takes 4 minutes or less to prep & cook it up in the microwave. No cooking utensils required. Just use your bare hands. No kiddin’.
- 1/2 cup (approximate) raw, chopped spinach leaves. Just break into smaller pieces with your hands.
- 2 eggs
- 1-2 tbsp crumbled feta (approximate) ~ use as much as you’d like
- salt & pepper to taste
- Lay chopped spinach at bottom of microwave safe bowl.
- Break two eggs over spinach.
- Microwave for 2.15 minutes or until eggs are set to your liking.
- Sprinkle on salt, pepper & crumbled feta.
It’s so dang easy to make this in the morning. Not too shabby for lunch or a light dinner either. Just add your favorite meat.
The feta in this dish with make your taste buds explode. The protein content is needed for building muscle. Cooking a complete meal 4 minutes or less will allow you more time to do most important thing ever in life: practicing your corpse pose.
Must I go on?
This dish is flat-stomach friendly, so I invite you to carry on with your stomach-flattening maneuvers by feeding on this dish.
Those darn thighs. They’re a nagging trouble zone for a lot of us wonderful peoples. Including me! Let’s work our thighs, baby. Let’s get ‘em sleek & sculpted together…
Inner Thighs: FULL WORKOUT
There are two rounds in the circuit. Each round consists of 4 inner thigh exercises:
- 10 reps frog legs onto tip-toes
- 10 pulses elevated side leg lifts (then switch sides)
- 8 reps leg scissors pulse (3 low-end pulses, then legs up, equals 1 rep)
- 8 reps low-end plie’ pulses (3 low-end pulses, then stand up, equals 1 rep)
INSTRUCTIONS, MODIFICATIONS & PROPER FORM
1. Frog Legs onto Tip-Toes: With legs a little more than shoulder width apart, crouch down to assume a frog position. Then stand up onto tip-toes. This will require you to balance by engaging your core and keeping your legs strong. To modify the move, go down only as far as you can and/or do not go onto your tip toes on the way back up to standing.
2. Elevated Side Leg Lifts: Lay on your side with legs at a slight 45-degree angle. Place your top leg behind you in a bent-knee position. Lift hips up off the floor and begin an 8-count pulse with the other leg. Because your hips are off the floor, you will need to engage your core to stay stable and prevent from falling over. For the leg that’s bent, drive that heel into the floor and keep your leg tight. Your bent leg will also feel it in the inner thigh. To modify the move, keep your hips on the floor. Be sure to switch sides to work the other leg for an 8-count.
3. Low-End Pulse Leg Scissors: Lift both legs up at 90-degree angle. Open legs wide with your heels slightly pointed in and pulse the legs in the low-end position for a 3-count. Bring your legs back up and your cross the ankles, left over right. This is one rep. Complete the 3-count pulse again, this time, crossing with the ankle, right over left, when you bring the legs back up. To modify the move, pulse down once (instead of 3 times) before you bring your legs back up.
4. Dumbbell Plie’ Pulses: Legs wide and feet at 45-degree angle (or more, if it’s comfortable). You will naturally have a slight bend forward as you plie’ down, but don’t hunch your back or lean over too much. Keep your neck in line with spine and engage your core. Pulse down 3 times as you lower the dumbbell. As you come back up, raise the dumbbell for a bicep curl, being sure to keep your elbows by your sides. To modify the move, ditch the dumbbell and/or pulse down once (instead of 3 times) before you come back up.
For more of a challenge on any of these move, increase reps and/or pulses, but do NOT sacrifice good form for higher reps.
√ 10-pound dumbbell (or heavier) for plie’ pulses. I used a 20-pound dumbbell.
POST WORKOUT RECOVERY & NUTRITION
Healthy sources of protein are necessary for muscle building and muscle recovery. Greek yogurt, protein powder, eggs, beans, chicken, fish, lean cuts of beef and Shakeology are all excellent sources of healthy protein. But go easy on that cheese!
…it seems unending and may cause discouragement.
It can be time consuming and doesn’t pair well with procrastination.
It will cause mental (and maybe even physical) fatigue, and cause you to second guess your good intentions.
It probably requires a mind-boggling level of commitment.
At some point you might just wanna screw it all and regress to a lesser variety that doesn’t go against the grain.
It’s the pursuit of your goals, and I’ve taken the liberty of calculating some of these difficult risks for you.
The pursuit of anything worth having will be difficult and uncomfortable. These risky discomforts simply come with the territory. Do your absolute best to maneuver through it well.
