Hey. . . it’s Fit Friday!!
That means Miss Nichole from Pure Clean Fitness is here to hang out with us! I love having her visit and inspire our fitness! Chicken Tomatillo Soup from me + a HIIT Workout from Miss Nichole to keep all our healthy New Years Resolutions on track! 🙂
Our Chicken Tomatillo Soup is a yummy soup for these cold winter months before spring hits! We love this soup at my house. I put it in the crock pot in the morning, go about my busy day, and come home to this warm soup ready for my son and I to enjoy together! We love to eat it with these Mission Tortilla Chips, Rounds, 13 oz or these are really fabulous too… Trader Joe’s Organic Stone Ground Blue Corn Tortilla Chips with Sprouted Amaranth, Quinoa & Chia Seeds – 12 Oz. (Pack of 2 -Total of 24 Oz.)
Chicken Tomatillo Soup is filled with great protein: chicken, beans, and cotija cheese!! If you love all types of warmth like my kids and I do, enjoy this delicious soup in front of a fireplace wrapped up in a cozy blanket! Don’t forget to try our other favorite winter slow cooker soups… Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup, Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup, Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup!!
Miss Nichole has a HIIT Workout for us. . .
We are starting the New Year returning to the basics. I do this every year with my classes and clients. It gives us a chance to double check that we are doing everything as we should be. That means that we are getting low in our squats and watching our leg placement, taking pushups to the ground in order to make them effective, etc. Back to the basics doesn’t mean it is going to be an easy workout. Today we are going to be doing a HIIT workout, the goal is to focus on quality not quantity.
During the first round you will complete each move for 45 seconds with a 10-15 second recovery. It is much better to get 10 squat hops that include a LOW squat rather than 30 squats hops only dipping your hips an inch or two. In order to make your workout most effective you need to focus on strong, complete movements.
At the beginning of every remind I tell my spin to have a goal. Go into every workout with a goal and focus on the goal. If your goal is simply to finish then focus on finishing strong. If you have a race in the spring and your are working on building strong muscles to carry you through that finish line then focus on that. Have a goal to push you when you are tired, distracted, or simply just not feeling it.
Chicken Tomatillo Soup will keep those winter blues from setting in!!
Happy Fit Friday! 🙂
Much Love and Peace~
