You know what Wednesday Is? HUMP day? (Glee from last night, anyone?) ok moving on. I want to pick up where I left off from yesterday. I recived some goodies from iherb (using a $5 coupon, thanks Averie!!) I got this great probiotic drink that got great reviews (flavor wise)
I took a nice 2 T shot of the apple strawberry goodness. It was very good indeed! Tasted like sweet juice!

I LOVED this dish. It was so easy to make and super juicy

For lunch I made a killer wrap. I used fresh arugula, some grape tomatoes, dijon mustard, laughing cow and a Food For Life smushed veggie burger.
I love these veggie burgers. That smoky flavor was JUST what I wanted!
On the side, I had a simple salad with romaine, shrooms, baby carrots, corn, eddamame, cukes and salsa as the dressing

A guy I work with just got back from Hawaii and brought me back some 100% Kona Coffee!! I can't wait to try it!
You don’t need to do endless crunches to work your abs! Since starting INSANITY, my whole core area has gotten much slimmer and I can actually see abs! I also have not performed one crunch in over a month and a half! There are a number of exercises you can perform that will recruit all of the muscle fibers deep within the tissue without requiring any type of crunching action.
1. Chop Squats: Squat with arms overhead. As you stand rotate torso and quickly swing arms down toward hips as you squat down. To add even more resistance, hold a 6lb medicine ball or dumbbell in your hands
