12.22.09: Workouts, Richard Simmons, Green Tea Frappucino Recipe

Today's Workout:
-Firm Aerobic Body Shaping
-Sweatin to the Oldies 3 (6 min)
*total w/o time 60 min + stretch

I know Richard Simmons is not the most popular w/o instructor out there but I like him :) Hes goofy and fun. His w/o's are upbeat and have good music. Sure, they aren't very tough, but you can modify them up (or down) as needed. I would MUCH rather pop in his w/o's than some of those boring repetitive walking w/o's that are so popular w/ so many (not mentioning names). And there are good walking w/o's out there, I own some. I know obviously this is very taste specific and anyone/thing that gets people moving is great, so I/m not knocking them. Just saying: good music+ goofy guy=good fun. To each his/her own.

Today's LOL:

Today's Recipe: Green Tea Frappucino from Hungry Girl

4 oz. light vanilla soymilk
1 oz. Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup (Toroni, Da Vinci, etc.)

2 tsp. Coffee-mate Sugar Free French Vanilla powdered creamer
1 heaping tsp. matcha green tea powder (found in tea shops, or at Japanese markets)
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda)
1 1/2 cups crushed ice

Directions: Combine matcha green tea powder and powdered creamer with 2 oz. of warm water, and stir until powders have completely dissolved. Place this mixture in a blender, along with the soymilk, syrup, sweetener, and ice. Blend on high speed for about 30 seconds.

Today's Tip: Skim Milk (again go organic IMO, or at least no growth hormones!)
Skim milk doesn't grab as many headlines as wine or green tea, but it's still a stellar sip. One cup supplies 30 percent of your daily calcium and 25 percent of your vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium and regulates cell growth. It also contains protein, potassium and riboflavin, a B vitamin that helps produce energy in all your body's cells. All this for less than 100 calories. Drink up!
