Football Means Fall


It’s that time of year again; it’s football season! Bring on the tailgating, beer, football parties, and cheesy guacamole dip 🙂 Good times are ahead. Unfortunately, today I’ll be listening to the first Buckeye game of the season on the radio due to having to work. Solo celebrating? Not much fun, so maybe we can have a Buckeye Twitter party? See you there. I’ll pretend my lemon Vitamin Water Zero has vodka in it 😉

By the way, where did this year go? At the risk of sounding old, time just keeps flying on by. However, I’ll embrace the incoming of the new season. It’s one of my favorites and I can’t wait for cool nights and overdoing it on pumpkin recipes. Since Fall is still m.i.a. and we’re experiencing 100F weather here in Cbus, I may have to start out with my pumpkin smoothie to keep cool.

Today’s smoothie was another “usual” (vanilla protein powder, frozen banana, spinach), but it still hit the spot after my workout. I completed a similar workout to my No Weight But Body Weight workout, but I added in a few extra cardio moves to keep my heart rate up and maximize the cardio and strengh benefits.

Here’s the breakdown. Try to move from one exercise to the next with minimal rest periods in between to maximize calorie burn. It only takes about 25 minutes and then you’re done. Then you can go tailgate 🙂
