As an English teacher by day, I love themes. It's no surprise that I would apply them to other aspects of my life including my fitness. For St. Patrick's Day I thought I'd look for ways to bring some Irish into my diet and workouts. I am not Irish by blood, so I started my food and fitness research on the internet - (full disclosure I asked mrC first, but he was not helpful).
Honestly, I found A LOT of Irish food that I would never eat or won't eat now that I'm GF: Brussel sprouts, corned beef and cabbage, soda bread, lamb stew, shepherd's pie...did I mention that I'm a picky eater?
In the end, I think I'll stick to just having something GREEN...like spinach in my smoothie!

Putting together an Irish workout was much easier. For this one, I thought I would focus on leg strength since that is where I am right now.
Each exercise can be done as an interval. I chose 30 seconds on for each with 5 seconds rest and repeated 3 times.
What is your favorite way to "be" Irish with food or fitness?
