Fit Friday - Strawberry, Chicken and Kale Salad with a Side of Tabata

Another week has flown by and Fit Friday is back at ya! Ruthie has a follow up to last week's delicious dressing. We love our salads! And I am done with recovery and enjoying my workouts this week. Enjoy...

Strawberry, Chicken, and Kale Salad is a lovely spring and summer lunch!  Remember last Fit Friday's Raspberry Balsamic Dressing?  Well, it goes perfectly with our Strawberry, Chicken, and Kale Salad today!  They're a match made in heaven if I do say so myself!! :)  Strawberry, Chicken, and Kale Salad is a lovely spring and summer lunch! www.cookingwithruthie.com
I love the spring time not only because all the flowers and trees are beginning to burst into bloom but it's also when all the fresh berries start coming into season!  Strawberry, Chicken, and Kale Salad has shredded chicken breast, red onions, fresh strawberries, mint, and the most moth-watering cheese ever made!   The cheese on our Strawberry, Chicken, and Kale Salad is from one of my favorite stores, Trader Joes.  I can't even begin to tell you how fabulous it is. . . FOR REALS!  You've simply all got to give it a try! Strawberry, Chicken, and Kale Salad is a lovely spring and summer lunch! www.cookingwithruthie.com
 Here's what TJ's says about it. . .  Creamy Toscano Cheese Soaked in Syrah- begins with a Wisconsin-crafted cheese that seamlessly blends the nutty flavor of an aged Parmesan with the creamy texture of a farmstead Cheddar.  In a twist that's exclusive to Trader Joe's, each wheel is soaked in our very own Coastal Syrah.  The wine imparts subtle blackberry and plum jam flavors to the cheese, creating a marriage of flavors that's destined to make you say "I do," over and over again.

  One of the greatest things about working out is finding that limits are not set in stone, they can be pushed and they can be broken. Weights that seemed impossible one day become liftable. Speeds that seemed a bit insane are now within reach. And workouts that seemed daunting become your bread and butter. This is one of those workouts.

Today we are doing a Tabata style workout with a weighted ball. Tabata is hard, it is supposed to be. You have to learn to embrace the hard, seek after the hard, and you will find that hard is fun. Hard is how we get better. Hard it how we make changes.

Quick reminder: Tabata is 20 seconds all out with a 10 second rest for 8 rounds (4 minutes). The 20 seconds is meant to be all out!


Have a fabulous Fit Friday! 
Much Love and Peace~ Ruthie
