Super Heroine Fitness Week 4

I weighed in last night down .8 lbs, just .2 lbs above the goal window.

I received the Exspiral Veggie Spiralizer for free in exchange for my honest review.  When Benny saw the package he wondered why I had something German. LOL  I've been playing around with spiralizing squash and zucchini.
Messy leftovers
I didn't realize there would be such a mess to clean up afterwards.  So glad they provide the cleaner brush to get in the tight spaces!  The lid you're supposed to put on the end of the veggie you're spiralizing when you near the end of the item.  I tried that and it just squished it more.  It did not help in spiralizing the end piece.
End piece after spiralizing
I've heard from others that it's not uncommon to have the end piece after spiralizing with some spiralizers.  It was suggested to just chop it up and that's what I did.

Ready to toss the Zoodles & Squoodles
I enjoyed spiralizing the zucchini and squash but I haven't been creative with using the zoodles and squoodles (is that what the squash is called?).

Weigh-in Wednesday!

THURSDAY I did Adventure 3.

SATURDAY I wrapped up Episode 1 with Adventure 4.

SUNDAY I explored Episode 2 to see what I could do and what needed swapped.  I think I'm going to get hurt on Adventure 3 with the Stability Ball Leg Curls!  That ball won't stay still even on the carpet.  This next phase will be totally different doing AMRAP in 25 minutes!

MONDAY I did a cardio workout from

TUESDAY I started Episode 2 with Adventure 1.  Now the guide says you complete 3-4 circuits on average.  I think I either went too light (8 & 10 lb dumbbells) or too fast because I knocked out 6 circuits and still had just under a minute left.  I didn't want to start a 7th circuit.  Take a look at the exercises (linked in Sunday above) and let me know in the comments how many circuits you think you'd do on average.

Today there are storms in the forecast off and on all day so I'm not sure if I'll get a walk in.

Saturday we're going to the Indiana State Fair.  We haven't gone in several years so it'll be a new experience for us.  Benny and I went to the media preview event on the 5th and we saw so many changes!  I spotted on the map a Lactation Station...and it's in front of the Public Safety Center.  Multiple Designated Smoking Areas but only one single "safe place" for women to breastfeed?  I found that odd.  Is this the new norm?

Speaking of the Fairgrounds, if you are planning to be in the area late September be sure to enter the giveaway for tickets to the Indy Cooking Expo as it ends Saturday!
