You know you’re unfit when you get stitch after 2 minutes or running 💪

Fun fact (and hopefully a bit reassuring too): For most people, stitches in your side are caused by either poor breathing habits, posture, or badly timing your meals before a…

Baked Blooming Onion…RECIPE

It’s really easy to cut the onion this way - Lay the onion on the cutting board so that the flat side (that you just cut) is facing downward. Then use a knife to section the onion into 16ths, beginning with your knife 1/8-inch away from the root and cutting straight down. Once all cuts are complete, turn the onion over and set on a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Then use your fingers to gently spread apart the petals. If any of your cuts did not go all the way through, you can use a paring knife to be sure that the entire onion is cut into 16ths.

March: Start of Spring

March has four calendars: a basic version for the average reader, one for beginners with frequent rest days, one for students that asks you to do more working out on the weekends, and one for dancers (or anyone else working on flexibility) that includes stretch days.

The directions are simple: find the current date on the calendar, see what workout(s) it asks for, and pick one from each section listed for that date. For example, if today it says “Arms” and “General,” I’d find an arm workout and a general workout to do today.

Feel free to substitute an HIIT workout for any cardio workout listed. This is especially helpful if you don’t have a lot of time for cardio.

If you’d like to write about your experiences during the month or see how others are doing, please use the tag “BoP: March”. By all using this tag, we can see what others are doing during the month and send others encouragement along the way. Let’s all support each other on our journeys! (If you’re not on Tumblr but still use these calendars, feel free to update us on the Back On Pointe Facebook Page or the Back On Pointe Fitocracy Group! Or, post on Instagram or Twitter!)

During the month, remember that you should take as many rest days as you need, modify any workouts that you cannot do, stay hydrated, get more low-intensity cardio, and eat well.

Have fun!

p.s. Any of the calendars can be modified. If you are training for a half-marathon, feel free to count that as your cardio on cardio days. If you’re sore in the arms from helping a friend move, substitute a butt workout instead. It’s all about you!

March is here and I’m celebrating with a new challenge! This month is all about MIND & BODY. In addition to a fitness plan, it features a daily attitude challenge, something to help you feel good about yourself, your surroundings, and your goals (particularly your health-specific ones!). The calendar is printable so save it, print it, and check off the bubble each day. Don’t forget to reward yourself! My suggestion is to reward yourself based on the number of bubbles you check off each week.

For more at home workouts and monthly plans go here and for weekly meal plan ideas to go along with this go here! :)

ps- if you post about your progress this month here on tumblr or on instagram I’ll leave you encouraging comments & feedback! I follow the tag piecesinprogress on both. :)
