BalletFIT Cardio and Winter Farmer's Market #eatlocal

So I realized, I haven't really talked about the fitness portion of my life very much, I've mostly focused on my jaw surgery, and adventures in the kitchen. I generally workout 5-6 days a week for 45-60 mins a day, some days 2 hrs if I take two classes. I dance, do Pilates, run, spin, and do yoga! I like to continually cross train and switch things up, I feel like if you do too much of one thing your body gets used to it and you don't achieve the results you may be seeking. Also if I do one thing day after day, I get bored! Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons and Maroon 5 are just a few of the people that fuel my workouts  . . .what are some of your workout playlist favorites?

I began my Saturday with a virtual BalletFit Cardio class. DanceFIT Studio has an amazing virtual workout program that let's you work up a sweat in the comfort of your own home!  For most classes you only need the latest version of Skype, a mat, and a chair, a few classes require weights and or resistance bands. After a shower and some plain greek yogurt with pomegranate seeds, walnuts, shredded coconut, ground flax, 1/2 a homemade protein bar, and a strong cup of coffee, I bundled up and headed to a winter farmer's market.

The winter's farmer's market was so fun! Live music, local bakeries, coffee, and mountains of fresh from the farm fruit and veggies. Last summer I had a CSA and I went to the market every Saturday, I love eating local and organic fruits and vegetables, and also supporting our farmers! Today I stocked up on lots of root veggies to make a soup I pulled a recipe for, as well as ingredients for some veggie burgers- I am determined to knock a recipe out of the park for those tomorrow1

Pretty coffee. . . 

When I got home from the market I put together a delicious salad with Organic mâche rosettes, curls of yellow, orange, and purple carrots, cherry tomatoes, julienned red pepper, raw hemp hearts, a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt & pepper.

After a late lunch I tackled the soup- totally forgot to take a pic. but this is worth making, glad I read the post full of Winter Friendly Soups this morning!

On tap for tomorrow, veggie burgers, maple pecan muffins, and maybe some egg muffins. For now? back to watching the Olympics, and then time for bed!
