Yesterday I tried out my New Foam Roller. Some areas that I rolled over were very tender and it was a bit on the painful side, but other areas it felt like it loosened up my muscle right away. My upper thigh and the area right above my knee’s were very tender. I can really see how using the roller regularly will have its benefit’s. It’s almost like its own workout, my arms and ab’s got quite the workout from supporting my body while Rolling. Bonus!

Being a fan of Panini Sandwiches, I have one sandwich that I crave on a regular basis.

Guacamole Chicken Breast Artichoke Panini

For a side dish Yucon Fries with Roasted Asparagus.

The crunchy grilled flavor along with the cheesy guacamole goodness keeps me coming back time and time again.  I have a few Panini recipes, but I never get to them because I love this combo so much.

My spread choice is either hummus or guacamole. You can not go wrong with either choice.

My workout was a good one, I did 40 minutes on the elliptical. Since really starting to challenge my strength and up my resistance I feel like I am getting stronger. I find myself able to do longer bursts at higher resistances and even add incline during the bursts. It’s a Work in Progress.

One workout I have been slacking on are my abs so I did the Tone it Up Girls  Lean Ab Pyramid.
