2 large cucumbers - cubed
1 pint grape tomatoes - sliced in half
1/4 of a red onion - sliced
1/4 -1/2 cup rice vinegar ( I ran out of rice vinegar at 1/4 c. so I used apple cider vinegar to finish.)
2-3 packets of Truvia
Combine all the ingredients and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Oh, my! It's so delicious!
I mentioned in my previous posts that I have been doing an Ease into 5K. I'm still doing it, but I'm behind by a week and a half. I think I'm having a mental block as I know this next run is supposed to be 20 minutes without walking. HELLO! I'm skeered! But since I've missed over a week, I am going to re-run week 6 days 1 and 2 before I throw myself into the 20 minute run. Because I'm a wimp when it comes to 100+ degrees, I have been running on a treadmill. I sort of like running on the treadmill - in the air-conditioning.
Even though I haven't ran in a week in a half, I have still been exercising. I've done lots of interval type workouts and some Pilates. I even did a class where I nicknamed the instructor, El Diablo. Oh. My. Gosh. My abs and gluts have hurt for three days.
Do you hate crunches as much as I do? If so, here's a great exercise you can do with a stability ball that will really target those abs and help strengthen your lower back. If you really want to take it up a notch, while in this position, roll that ball out in front of you and then roll it back. Wowsers! How do I know it works? I just did this in Pilates and my abs are telling me it works!
