Congratulations to Adriana who took 4th in Fitness category at the Emerald Cup this year! She had been out of fitness since 2012 even though she made a figure appearance in 2013 and 2018. It was a challenge for her with a toddler and juggling a business and full training schedule, "I did it for you mamas out there, I know its hard but do what you love, set some goals, get support, and exercising gets easy. I have to keep up with a 3 yrs. and feel like I'm old. But we can still do it, we just have to warm up and stretch more often!"

I tried this at a delicious restaurant in Fremont called Turko Cafe, rainbow hummus. This I seen a recipe for in a fitness magazine, Strong Fitness, I realized it was fate!: I just had to try making this! Ok after lots of modifications this is it!
makes about 52 2 tbsp servings
20 min prep time even less if you buy the cooked beets from Trader Joe’s . You can slip that step altogether.
3 cups of steamed beets
3 1/2 tsp of lemon juice
1 garlic clove
1 1/2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil melted
1/2 c of tahini
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of cumin (optional)
black pepper and cayenne to taste
Blend all ingredients in a high powers blender and volá!
Enjoy with some sliced cucumber, peppers, asparagus!
What do you need when you are traveling and want to get a workout in for the day?
Towel, spaces, water and the workout of course:
I can help you with the workout part, you have to carve out the time and space. I do my workout earlier, depending on what I'm doing that day? If I'm walking and site seeing then I'm going to do a strength training workout. If I am going to be on the move in a vehicle traveling to another city, then I'll do for that cardio, mostly run. You can see a lot more of the city or town you are in that way and orient yourself. I loving being able to do that. If its hot outside I'll get up earlier to void the excuse of it being to hot outside. Cuba was awesome but the sun was relentless after 8am.
Here's what I did
Warm up with 10 air squats, 10 walkout, 10 cobras and 10 push ups and 1 min plank.
10 plank shoulder taps
10 Single leg romaine deadlift with arm overhead (R &L)
10 BW Spider pushups
12 Arms overhead body weight low squats
12 Face down Cobra Y's or V's (in my case, my shoulders are tight)
10 Single leg Bulgarian Split Squats
30 sec side plank with one leg up
3 sets, then stretch.
