Day 5 Pinterest Challenge!

Day 5 Pinterest Challenge! Hope you enjoy today's thoughts, tips and workout!

This HIIT Workout is meant to get you sweating in just 9 minutes. So give it your all and enjoy the endorphin kick!

Move 1: Frog Jump Burpees - Standing with feet hip width apart, squat down and place hands on ground in front of you, jump legs back into plank position, jump legs back in and then from a low squatted position hop as far as you can forward and do another burpee. After this one, hop back to start position, do a burpee and continue in this manner doing a frog hop forward and backward between each rep. Repeat for 1 minute.

Move 2: Mountain Climbers - From a standing position, raise your right hand reaching as high as you can, while driving your left knee up and out. Switch by pulling down with your right hand and reaching high with your left hand. At the same time, let your foot fall to the floor, then drive with your right knee up and out. Repeat for 1 minute.

Move 3: Scissor Runs - This is straight out of Insanity. With your legs and arms completely locked in a straight position, move them as fast as you can. You'll kind of feel like a robot. But keep going as fast as you can for 1 full minute! (Heels should be on the floor as much as you can!)

Repeat these 3 moves, 3 times to get your 9 minute burn!

This Asian Chopped Salad is AMAZING! So delicious and so healthy!

-1/2 head Green Cabbage
-1/2 head Purple Cabbage
-1/2 bag Shredded Carrots
-1 bag Edamame (1.5 cups) - I buy a shelled, frozen kind and let it thaw
-1 cucumber, sliced
-Slivered Almonds or Cashews
-1/4 cup Peanut Butter
-2 Tbsp Unflavored Rice Wine Vinegar
-1 Lime, Just the Juice
-3 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
-1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
-2 Tbsp White Sugar
-2 Garlic Cloves, Chopped
-1 tsp Salt

Cut cabbages into bite sized pieces. Combine with carrots, edamame and cucumbers in a large bowl.
Next, make the dressing. Combine all ingredients in a blender cup and blend! If you need to make it thinner, add water or more soy sauce.
Toss vegetables in dressing and top with almonds or cashews.
