It is Fit Friday again! What a great day for me to get reacquainted with my computer, you, and the world.

My body is dreaming of workouts and my belly is craving healthy food still. So Ruthie, from Cooking with Ruthie is here with a yummy salad recipe to start off our Fit Friday.

 Well, after a wonderfully crazy couple of weeks it is time for me to start coming back to the land of the living and getting on track again....with a few things at least. This yummy salad recipe will be a great addition to getting my nutrition back on track. I am not quite up to working out much yet, just some easy walks at this point in time, but I am getting some great workouts collected for my clients and classes. I have been having some fun with these workouts because I am eager for some fun workouts myself.
For those of you that are new to working out, or even just new to me, remember you can always modify to your abilities. You have to learn to listen to your body while still pushing yourself. So, let's get it going!

Today is all body weight exercises. Which also means that you can complete this workout at home, which is definitely a bonus for me these days.

Round 1:
25 Squats
25 Pushups
25 Situps
2 min of Jump Roping or Running Stairs

Round 2:
20 Alt. Forward Lunges
20 Dips
20 Windmill Situps
2 min of Jump Roping or Running Stairs

Round 3:

2 min of Jump Roping or Running Stairs

Round 4:
