I went to the bikerbar(re) and I loved it!

Recently I had the opportunity to try out a new workout and I NEED to tell you all about it.  It’s called bikerbar(re) and it sounded really intimating to me in concept.  bikerbar(re) is a class where ladies hit the bike for a 30 minute ride, and then hit the bar(re) for 30 minutes of a traditional bar(re) workout.  Why would that intimidate me?  Because I have never been someone that enjoyed, sought out, or regularly attended any spin class… like at all.  It’s just never been my thing. 

 
You guys… I loved it!  Like, really really.  I knew I would like the bar(re) part, but I was scared for the ride.

Moms in Training

Hey mamas,
This workout Wednesday post is for all the running mamas out there and for all the mamas who want to be running mamas.  It’s about two of my favorite things: philanthropy and exercise.  My oldest girlfriend and new mom Amy was asked by Team in Training to get the word out about a brand spankin’ new program they are offering called Moms in Training.  And they have a group right here in Folsom.  (Other towns too, check the webbie for locations.)  She’s a very seasoned runner and had a great experience with Team in Training before she had her adorable daughter Hyland.  One of the reasons she loved doing TNT – aside from the obvious reasons of reaching a goal, invaluable info, and helping to raise money for a more-than-worthy cause – was making new friends!  That’s just another reason I think this new program is so awesome.  Obvi, I know firsthand how challenging training for a run can be, but when you have a group that has your same challenges it can as good as therapy.  Here’s some info straight from the mom-bassader herself.

Hi mamas!  I’m hoping to get the word out to all the mamas in momtourage land about a great group that’s starting up right in our area.  Have you ever heard of Team in Training?  Of course you have. You may have seen me post on FB about all the crazy workouts and events I did with them back in the day before my kiddo came.  You may have also seen all the wacky people wearing purple and dressed in crazy costumes and clanging cowbells at races you’ve been to.
Well, let me tell you about Moms in Training.  It’s a spin-off from TNT that is focused on us moms. :)  We volunteer to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in exchange for help in training for a 5K run/walk.  The workouts and the event are stroller-friendly.   So bring your baby.  (or not…that’s cool too.)

We had our first workout last Saturday in Roseville, but it isn’t too late to join in the fun!  Meet some great moms, work for a good cause, and do a little something for yourself.  Come join us in Folsom next Saturday morning.
Check out this website for more information.  Here’s a pic of us this morning at our first workout.  We made it out.  in the rain.  And yep,  there’s a baby under that blanket! Go moms!!

You guys, I love this so much!  It’s so great that there are programs like this to bring moms together for a good cause and to get a workout.  Awesome!  If you want more information you can checkout their website or show up to their workout this Saturday at 8am in Folsom.  If you have any questions about this program please leave them in the comments section and Amy will be happy to answer them for you.
XOXO

Paleo with Cam

Paleo Recipes with Cam

For my last blog post on Mama Momtourage, I’m going out on a high!!  I am giving you a fish, chicken, and tri-tip recipe.  What can I say, I’m a nice lady.  I hope you all have enjoyed some of my favorite Paleo recipes as much as I have enjoyed sharing them.  We are all busy mamas and can all use some new ideas in the kitchen.  I hope to come back from time to time to share more awesome ways to make your life a little more healthy and your tummies nice and full.

First up Coconut Chicken!!  This is my all-time favorite Paleo chicken.  It is super easy, juicy, and yummy.

Coconut Chicken

Paleo with Cam

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil

Mix almond flour, shredded coconut and sea salt together in a bowl.  Beat egg in separate bowl.  Dip chicken breast in egg and roll in dry mixture.  Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add coconut oil when hot.  Pan fry chicken until fully cooked. If the crust starts to brown and your chicken isn’t fully cooked yet (this will depend on the size of the chicken breast), take it out of the pan and place it in the oven on a baking sheet at 350F for 5-10 minutes covered with foil.

Crockpot Tri-Tip

Paleo with Cam

  • 2-3 lbs of Tri-Tip
  • 1/2 cup of Beef Broth
  • 3 tbls of Italian seasoning or 1/2 packet of dry Italian dressing mix (non-paleo)…
  • Generous sprinkling of garlic powder
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 tbls of ground mustard
  • 2-4 dashes of Hot Sauce (Frank’s)
  • Drizzle with Olive Oil

Add broth first, then Tri-Tip.  Top with all the spices, hot sauce, and olive oil. Cook on low for 8 hours. If all the broth cooks down add more at anytime.

BBQ Salmon

Paleo with Cam

This is another easy go-to.  Simply cut your large side of salmon into 6 pieces and place in a foil boat (meaning sides of foil flipped up to keep liquids in and so that it can be closed).  Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, and a garlic seasoning (I like one that is a mix of garlic, basil, onion and salt).  I close the foil boats and pass them off to the hubby to BBQ.  As you can see asparagus or broccoli with mushrooms is our veggie of choice.  I simply sauté either or those veggies and mushrooms with olive oil, coconut aminos, and garlic.

These recipes look awesome!  For me, the try-tip is a really great recipe because there have been so many times I’ve wanted to make one but didn’t have enough time to BBQ it.  Slow cooker…genius!

Thanks so much to Nick and Cam for providing us with healthy tips, recipes, and workouts each Wednesday this January.  I hope they come back from time to time with more healthy info for us!

XOXO
