Fit Friday - Crazy Day Lunches and Workouts

It is a day of craziness for Fit Friday today. We all have those busy days that require running from place to place. Ruthie is here with a great idea for an on-the-go lunch. Crazy days also require a great, effective workout, check out the treadmill workout.

Cilantro Turkey Lavash Wrap with Pico de Gallo Mayo is a spunky little wrap that's exciting to whip up for lunch!

 Cilantro Turkey Lavash Wrap with Pico de Gallo Mayo has got a lot more to it that I could even begin to fit in the title! It should say something like "Cilantro, Avocado, Tomato, Turkey, Provolone, and Spinach on Whole Grain Lavash with Pico de Gallo Mayonnaise" but, Google would never approve... hahahah. AND lets talk about that mayonnaise spread cuz it adds lots of flavor and a little bit of a spicy kick too! All you need to do is take Pico de Gallo or your favorite brand of fresh made salsa and mix it with olive oil mayonnaise! Simple but it really is the secret to the fabulousness of this wrap.

 I remember when wraps formally made their appearance in sandwich shops; seems like the beginning of the rave was probably around 2005-ish. I sure fell in love with them and started making them at home. You can actually make a wrap on a variety of whole grain products~ flat breads, tortillas, and lavash bread just to name a few.

 Wraps are a great alternative for lunch. They're quick to make and I love to just wrap and carry with me wherever my crazy day is taking me. I know, I know. I 'should' sit down and eat and enjoy my lunch but lets be honest it rarely, if ever, happens. SO, I love that wraps don't fall apart the way a sandwich does. There are soooooo many reasons they're deliciously awesome :) Plus they're packed with awesome nutrition and super versatile so take or leave any part of the ingredients you might not be a fan of and make your own spin on a wrap!

Cilantro Turkey Lavash Wrap with Pico de Gallo Mayo is just what you've been dreaming of for lunch today or tomorrow!


 We all have those crazy days when you need to throw a wrap together and into a bag for later, not knowing when you will have the opportunity to eat. Those are the same days that you need a quick crazy workout to get the blood flowing, the heart pumping, and the brain firing. These are the days that your mind and body are begging for intervals. 

For our intervals today we are hitting up the treadmill and capping it all off with some core. The goal is to get your heart rate going here folks, so no cheating!

Warm Up- 10 minutes. Start it as slow as you need to and work your way up to a solid base pace. 

Base pace is a speed that you can continue on for a long run

From this pace we are going to take it up a full level or more, depending on how you are feeling, for 2 minutes. Then back to base pace for 1 min.

Example: 6.0 to 7.0 for 2 min and back to 6.0 for 1 min.  

Repeat this for 6 rounds.
Cool Down- 5 min

Core: Rolling abs-this can be done with a wheel or just a barbell.
25 reps to finish off your workout

Pay attention to form! Core is engaged and only go as low or deep as you feel you can do safely.
When you are done head out the door and get on with your crazy day...don't forget your wrap!





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