We have had a number of people inquire about adding equipment back to our workouts. We'd love to hear from you about bringing super bands back to the boot camps. We'd need everyone to supply their own but they are not incredibly expensive and could add a lot more exercise options back to the workouts.
Please let us know your thoughts. Here's a link to what super bands are exactly: https://sandiegocorefitness.com/outdoor-fitness-equipment
To have beens for the week I recommend 1lb of dried pinto beans to start. Put them in a pot and fill the pot with water about an inch above the beans, bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer, uncovered, for 90 to 120 minutes. After 30 minutes, add half a sweet or yellow onion and 3 crushed cloves of garlic. Add pre boiled water if it recedes below the top of the beans.
Once they are done just set them aside, DO NOT DISCARD THE WATER THEY WERE SIMMERED IN! Discard the onion but leave the garlic with the cooked beans.
In a wok or small pot add 1/8 cup of organic safflower oil and warm it up on medium low heat. Add the other half the onion and 3 more cloves of garlic. Simmer until onion and garlic are thoroughly browned. Discard onion and garlic. If you are using a wok, you can start adding the cooked beans (no liquid), if you are using a small pot, add the oil to a skillet or larger pan, then start adding the beans.
Keeping it on medium/low heat, add some of the water from the beans and use a potato masher or large spoon to mash the beans. Add salt, paprika and cumin to taste. If you like it spicy you can add chili powder and a touch of cayenne powder.
I continue adding the water from the cooked beans until I get the right consistency I'm looking for. If necessary I will add regular water once the bean water is out.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Store bought tortillas often are loaded with salt and need preservatives to love on the shelf, not to mention they can cost $1 a tortilla. I calculated one burrito dinner to be nearly $20 after we added up all our costs with store bought products. I reduced this cost by half by making everything from scratch, improved the nutrition of the meals, reduced the calories and increased the taste factor by a million. If I get a couple requests, I will post my simple recipe for traditional but healthy tortillas and homemade frijoles refritos.
We accumulate excess body fat due to consistent inactivity. If our lives are mostly active with breaks, you're doing a great job. If your life is mostly sedentary with some spots of inspired movement, then you need to improve.
A walk, hike, bike ride or a game of volleyball are all healthy activities that contribute to an active schedule. You don't only have to count or schedule a dedicated workout to get stronger or in better cardiovascular condition. You should make fun athletic activities a major part of your fitness routine to find true health with the reduced stress of not always having to find time for a "workout".
