Fit Friday - Busy Lives!

Another week has flown by. Summer is here. Kids are busy. And I seem to always be on the go these days.  Ruthie and I get it, we live busy chaotic lives like most of you seem to. Ruthie,  Cooking with Ruthie, is here with a quick and easy recipe for a delicious dinner. Keep on reading with a great workout to sneak into the chaos.

Garlic Chive Shrimp is a light and delicious dinner that's super quick and easy to make! *garlic-chive-shrimp 3
 I love to eat these Garlic Chive Shrimp with whole grain angel hair pasta, the sauce from the pan with an added drizzle of olive oil , and sea salt but sometimes I'm just plain-jane like :) *garlic-chive-shrimp 2

Garlic Chive Shrimp is a quick and healthy way to serve up a dinner in 10 minutes or less!

On those days when we need a quick easy dinner to end the day we probably also need a quick easy workout to sneak into your day. It seems like there are lots of days like that this summer.
I am sure I sound like a broken record, but the easiest way to sneak in a workout on a busy day is to get up and get done first thing in the morning. 
For this workout we are hitting the track! 

400 m or .25 miles (1 lap on a standard track)

Walking lunges for 100 m
10 bounding jumps
Sprint to finish lap

10 to 1
Push-ups and sit-ups

400 m run....hard!

Workout done and time to get on with your crazy day! 

Happy Fit Friday!! 
 Much Love and Peace~ 
 Nichole and Ruthie
