Week 3 #CarlsCrew Challenge- {and a GIVEAWAY}

We are already into week 3 of the #CarlsCrew Challenge. The weather is getting a bit nicer and we had the chance to finally walk outside. It feels so nice to smell the fresh air.



This week the challenge is to do squats. They burn a lot of calories and work big muscle groups. If you can't do squats because of knee problems you could always do planks this week.

Try to start slow and do 10 squats in the morning and 10 in the evening. What you could do is to increase your squat count by 10 every day. Don't forget to take couple rest days also.

Hopefully you will continue to drink your water and eat your fruits/veggies. I do and I feel so good. I have been adding 2 cups of kale every day to my daily smoothie.

GIVEAWAY:  To add to this fun challenge I am offering one $25 Subway Gift Card to one lucky reader. Please fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter. Good luck!

Poulet avec Sauce à la Crème au Citron - Chicken with Creamy Lemon Sauce

Chicken with Creamy Lemon Sauce


Pâques arrive bientôt et si vous voulez impressionner vos invités, servez ce délicieux poulet avec sauce à la crème au citron. Ce repas est rapide à préparer et très goûteux. Vous pouvez le servir avec des carottes cuites au four et des petites fèves vertes. Nous aimons bien le petit goût citronné, cela fait très printemps. Un petit riz au poulet serait très bon avec ce repas.

Nous avons décidé cette année d'aller passer la fin de semaine de Pâques dans un chalet, sur le bord de l'eau dans l'Estrie. Cela fait du bien de se retrouver en famille de temps en temps et de respirer l'air frais. Nous allons en profiter pour jouer des jeux, lire, prendre de grandes marches.

Week 2 Fruits/Veggies Challenge #CarlsCrew - {and a GIVEAWAY}



Last week our challenge was to drink more water. It was easy for me because I drink water from morning to night. This week the challenge is to have fruits and vegetables with every snack and meal during the day. You could fill half of your plate with veggies and have fruits instead of a sweet dessert. I personally like smoothies. This week I am adding 2 cups of kale in my smoothie. I already put one cup of fruits and the kale will boost the vitamins I am getting in drinking my smoothie. And if you go to any restaurants ask to replace the rice with veggies or a salad.
