Fitness 5 on Friday

Fitness 5It’s Friday, and time for another Fitness 5 on Friday link-up courtesy of JVKom Chronicles. This week, Jen posed these questions:

1. What is your favorite time of day to workout? Morning, for sure. The farther I get into the day, the less likely I am to get that workout in.

2. What is your favorite Super Food? I think I like them all, actually, but I eat almonds and kale almost every day. My kids will eat at least a head of kale a day if I make it into chips. (They’ll also eat it in a salad).

3. What are some of your fitness goals? I want to keep my strength and mobility as I age, because I want to be able to do those all-important things like lug a vacuum cleaner up the stairs. I used to have a lot of trouble with my back, but it is in really good shape now and I want to keep it that way.

4. What is your favorite vegetable? I love beets, also acorn squash, kale, avocados…actually, it’s a long list. I prefer vegetables to fruits.

5. What is something fitness or health related that you’d like to work on? I am a yoga fan, and this year I’ve been working on learning to love headstand again. Adding strength training to my routine has really improved some of my yoga poses, including this one.

  1. You can do headstands!? I am envious…. in a good way. Reading all the kale chip thoughts makes ME think I ought to make some. I wonder if my children would eat them? I finally got Samuel to eat broccoli and I still don’t know why that is his one veggie of choice (for now.)

    • Not only that, I can do a handstand – probably one of the most empowering things I’ve done. Keep at the kale chips – it took a few times but now they love them.

  2. I hide kale in things and tell my 4 year old that it’s pesto. I haven’t done headstands in ages because of two herniated discs in my neck. I’m training for a half marathon right now and I’m starting to get back to my yoga practice because it really helps with my running.

    • Yes, headstand is not for you, but that’s what’s great about yoga – you can do whatever is suitable for your body. The studio where I go has classes for people with disabilities and returning vets and the yoga practice is adapted to their specific needs. Good luck with your training!

  3. You are just awesome Sarah! I love that you are health conscious. And it makes me very happy that you love veggies so much. I prefer veggies over fruits too. As I get older I try more and more veggies. I eat things that I never imagined I would. Thanks again for linking up!
