Glutes, Plantain Pizza Crust, and a Swiftwick Giveaway...

I have been loving my spin classes lately. A good sweat at 8:45 in the morning is always a great way to wake up. My friend Cindy is bringing a new spin concept class to Mobile soon, and I am so excited to try it out and tell you guys all about it.

Since taking time off from my Crossfit box to join the Y because I needed a pool to train for IM Augusta 70.3, I have been trying to incorporate a lot of the things I learned in Crossfit into my regular workout routine. I have been working a lot on my hamstrings, quads, and glutes. Its starting to show, thank goodness...

My Fit Plus Wear Sound Solution Pants definitely help my butt look good. I would love to know some of your favorite glute/leg exercises.

After I got home from the gym, I decided to test out my plantain tortilla recipe out as a pizza crust. (I cut the tortilla recipe down. 1 plantain, 1 egg, pinch of salt, 1/2 tbsp. coconut oil, and squeeze of lime. Mix in food processor till blended well. Spread on parchment paper and bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes. Makes a pizza crust the size of a large pizza) I knew that it wouldn't get crispy, however it actually held up great. I topped my pizza with organic tomato paste mixed with a tsp of raw honey and a tsp of coconut oil, lean ground turkey meat cooked with a little salt and island seasoning, chopped raw kale, and a very small amount of cheese. It was delicious.

  1. ooohooohoooh- I want some purple swiftkicks! I've been wearing asics sock :)

  2. and wooooweeeeee look at that toned fitplus butt!

  3. I love all the colors! I want one of each LOL. I wear any brand for short runs, but I do all my long runs in PRO Compression socks.

  4. All the colors -- put if I had to choose the "green" (which look yellow to me) or the bright pink gets a close 2nd! Love swiftwick socks

  5. My favorite running sock is Swiftwick...I probably have close to 15 pairs (I might have to pull them all out this weekend & count them). I have a pair of purple, but wouldn't mind another pair of purple...lots of my running gear has purple in it. I also want a blue pair...starting to acquire more blue running gear.

  6. Is it strange that when I say swiftwick in my head it sounds like "swiddick"? Them are some good sockies!

  7. I'm loving the green or purple socks! (GO TEAM!) - I wear injinjis for long runs, but LOVE how swiftwick feels for my shorter runs and every day activities

  8. oh gosh, I love all the colors. I vary between Swiftwich, Asics, and Wright socks for different needs. Love your pants!

    1. ooos. Typo. Of course I meant SWIFTWICK!

  9. OMG your plantain pizza is GENIUS! :)

  10. I'd like the blue ones. I have a pair of Aspire Twelve's that I use for long runs and marathons, they are awesome!

  11. Purplepurplepurple! My favorite color. That would be awesome!
