10 Minute Rubber Tubing Bootcamp Workout


You are very busy and you need a tough exercise program that won't involve you in buying fancy equipment or spending time in the gym. I have the best exercise plan for you. It is a ten-minute rubber tubing boot camp workout.

You will need a variety of rubber tubes or aka resistance tubes or bands. I would recommend Spri exercise products. They are the original resistance or rubber tubing exercise equipment. If you have your own rubber tubing then you can get started right away.

Spri has a chart with yellow being the easiest to purple being the hardest. You can go to their site or go to Amazon because they are sold on that platform too.

Do the workout two or three days a week with rest or a cardio day between the rubber tubing boot camp workout. I will include how to videos with each exercise. Have a variety of tubes because some exercises will be harder to perform than others. The thickness of the tube determines its strength level.

Beginners do 10 - 12 reps and Advanced exercisers do 15 - 25 reps
Warm-up one minute

Rubber Tubing Boot Camp Workout

Wendy's Harvest Salad Review

Wendy's just released their latest salad on their menu and it has an autumn theme. It is called the Harvest salad and I got to sample it on Tuesday.

The harvest salad has lettuce, sliced grilled chicken, diced red and green apples, dried cranberries, feta cheese, brown sugar walnuts, and Applewood smoked bacon and apple cider vinaigrette dressing. 

It is a little similar to their apple pecan salad except the apple pecan salad has blue cheese, pecans, no bacon and it comes with pomegranate vinaigrette. So, there is a slight difference between the two salads but not much.

I usually get their half salads because they are lower in calories. The harvest half salad has 320 calories and the apple pecan salad has 340 calories. The full harvest and apple pecan salad both have about 560-570 respectfully.

Thumbs up or Thumbs down?

I like the new Wendy's Harvest salad but I think the feta cheese doesn't agree with me. I have eaten it twice already and I have gotten a stomach ache from it each time. I have a slight milk allergy and I think that the feta cheese is upsetting my stomach. I don't get that when I eat the apple pecan salad. 

It is definitely a thumbs up. I like the bacon, apples, walnuts and the apple cider vinaigrette. It's a delicious salad and I recommend that you head over to Wendy's to give it a try. Since the salad has an autumn theme, you should get right over there and pick it up before it goes poof. What is your favorite Wendy's salad?

30 Day Lower Body Stretching Challenge


I think many of us need to do the challenge because we tend to neglect the flexibility part of our workout.  This workout focuses on the lower part of the body and not the upper body.

Flexibility is part of the five components of exercise.  The five component is what health educators and experts use to determine a well-balanced fitness routine. Flexibility, muscular endurance, muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance, and body composition are the five component of fitness. Your workout plan should incorporate all of the components. Go here to read more about the five components of exercise: The Five Components of Fitness: What You Need To Know.

If you are a runner, walker, suffer from hip and lower back issues or you are just super tight in your lower body, consider taking on the lower body challenge. The 30-day plan is just $6.95 and it is an instant download upon purchase at my Etsy shop.

What's included:
-Why stretch and more information on flexibility
-Flexibility test before and after
-The 30 Day Lower Body Stretching program with illustrations
-30-day accountability chart
