Strong Saturday- Spin!

What are you doing this Saturday to get moving? 

Today I took my first ever SPIN class!! Guess what? I loved it! I was a little intimidated at first, but I'm determined to not let fear stop me. It was so worth it. 

Spin is all about your lower body and getting your legs to feel the burn. If you're looking for some aerobic exercise and a little wake-up, this is the class for you. Pick a class with some great music to sing along to & a positive instructor & get moving. You won't regret it!

What's your favorite group class?

When It's Too Cold & Snowy To Get Out & Exercise....

What do you do?

I was feeling the need to move today but couldn't get to the gym right away, so I popped in this DVD: 10 minute solution Hip Hop Dance Mix. It's filled with several 10 minute dance segments.

No matter what, you will be having fun & laughing! It's even more fun to do with someone else! Kristin Jacobs is the instructor and she does the moves with no shame. I got this tape at Target a while back, but you can pick up a workout DVD anywhere. Jillian Michaels makes some great ones & AdvoCare also has a great one! Don't let cold, snowy days derail you from reaching those fitness goals. Get moving! And please share- what are your favorite things to do when you just can't get to the gym?

Creamy Cornbread

The weather is getting colder here & I don't know about you, but I am ready for some comfort food. Over Thanksgiving we made this delicious treat that I have been dying to share with yall. Now I probably can't make it quite like my nana, but I'm making it tonight. Let's start off with the ingredients:

1 box of cornbread mix (I love Jiffy- it's cheap & delicious & you can find it at the dollar store)
1 can cream of corn
1 egg
1/3 cup of milk
1 cup shredded cheese (use your favorite kind... Mozzarella, fiesta blend, cheddar!)

Yep... 5 ingredients! 
First, preheat the oven to 400. Get a bowl & mix your cornbread mix, can of cream corn, egg & milk.
Next, pour half of it into a pie plate. You can use a 9x9" pan or 8x8" if you want it to be a little thicker. Anything works! 
After that... Top with your favorite shredded cheese! {shown below}

Pour on the remaining cornbread/milk mix to cover it. {shown below}

Place in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 25 minutes and you have yourself a delicious, very moist side dish to some chili!!
