Great Summer Recipe and Interesting Information on Weight Loss

By July 18, 2011 No Comments

Hi Everyone!

My name is Karen, I am a not so regular contributor on this blog (I will blame it on my 3 young girls :)) and a Fit Fun Bootcamp Instructor in Waunakee, Wis.

Beat the Heat
If you live in the Midwest this week is going to be HOT. I am trying not to complain, one it isn’t good for you but two I really dislike winter and cold weather. Just be smart in the heat. If you are exercising outdoors, please get your workouts in early and hydrate. Otherwise, unless you are swimming, I would recommend working out in an air conditioned building.

Are you trying to lose weight and the scale isn’t moving? If yes, check out this article.
I am not going to promote or sell any supplements. I was emailed this article and found it very interesting so I wanted to pass it along. Keep in mind it takes good nutrition and exercise to lose weight safely and keep it off. I take Krill Oil and wanted to share this article with you as I found it very interesting.

Recipe – Thanks to Beth, a regular Fit Fun Bootcamper in Middleton and Waunakee, for this recipe for a great snack or dessert for summer.

Banana Fruit Split

2 large bananas
8 “scoops” watermelon and/or cantaloupe
1 cup blueberries (or raspberries or strawberries)
1/2 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup granola

1. Peel bananas and cut in half crosswise, then cut each piece in half lengthwise. For each serving, lay 2 banana pieces against the sides of a shallow dish.

2. To make watermelon “scoops” use an ice cream scoop to create balls of watermelon. Remove seeds, if needed. Place a watermelon “scoop” at each end of the dish.

3. Fill the center space with berries.

4. Stir yogurt until smooth, spoon over the watermelon “scoops”.

5. Sprinkle with granola.

Have a great week and don’t forget to be mindful of how your body feels under these extreme heat conditions.

Go Out, Get Active!
