FIT TIP FRIDAY brings a great tip from me to you . . . do as I (or anyone with some sense says) and not as I do. In other words, listen to your body and when it says "ENOUGH!", "QUIT!", "OUCH!", that's when you actually do stop. At least that is what I would tell you to do if you were in one of my classes, or within earshot of me. I would say go home, ice and get off of the injured appendage pronto!
If you don't, and you continue to aggravate an injury you'll end up being forced off! So, I've torn a calf muscle because of no one's fault but my own. I continued on it for three days until it absolutely sent me screaming for help. Therefore, let me be a lesson. Sometimes we can work it out on our own and sometimes we just can't. It's okay either way . . . just know your body, listen to it and do the right thing!
That's the FIT TIP for this Friday. Although, not much of a tip as you all already knew those words of wisdom.
Since I've not brought any enlightenment I'll make this post more about food.
I had some great, healthy foods this week! I love the Spring and Summer because of the light meals, fresh salads and fruits and veggies available. Yeah for no more hot soups for a while!

Water based tuna mixed with a little mustard and edamame - hummus and crackers on the side. A great tie you over snack or light lunch!
Chicken salad made by shredding white meat and adding lots of celery and a tiny bit of light mayo and plain yogart. Served with a salad of greens and edamame. Seems to be a theme of edamame here!
Fabulous "pre-ballpark" meal! I stole and reworked Giada De Laurentiis Pinwheel Pasta and peas dish. A little pancetta or bacon, cooked and removed. Sautee sugar snap peas and edamame in pan. Add chicken stock and simmer. Add cooked pasta. Crumble pancetta and parmesan cheese on top. How easy and good is that?
