Hello friends!!

Happy Monday! Who is ready for another fun week? Our purely fitters better be ready for more fun workouts this week and check-ins from us!

How was everyone’s weekend? Did you have nice weather?

We had a mix of sun and rain over the past few days. Hopefully the rain stops and more sunny weather comes to stay!


Thursday was a rest day for us but we did squeeze in a family walk.

Friday was doing a plank +bridge combo workout followed by a HIIT cardio sprint interval. Gary and Jax joined too.

Saturday we did a plank builder workout from our purely power fitness program. We did the workout out on Lori’s deck for a change of scenery.

Sunday was plank with some yoga. Did a little jumping too.

Enjoyed cutting our plantains differently to create plantain hash. Got this idea from Wendy, a reader, who left a comment on our facebook page sharing how she cuts them up like hashbrowns. Loved it.

Plantain hash = genius. How are you shredding it?

purelytwins July 8, 2013 - 1:39 pm

Amanda we just used a cheese grater. The plantains stuck a little to it as they are moist inside when you grate them.

Last movie I saw was the Great Gatsby and I liked it a lot!
We had the first real summer weekend here and it was lovely to be out at the lake!
Love the look of your green juice, will definitely get my juicer out tonight!

Lucie glad you had a great warm weekend 😉

I’ve seen a few movies lately! Warm Bodies (loved it!), 21 and Over (like The Hangover but for a younger audience… very awkward to watch and inappropriate), The Pelican Brief (on TV– older but I love Julia Roberts), Charlie Bartlett (on Netflix with Robert Downey Jr. and Kat Dennings– so funny!), Love’s Kitchen (Netflix- cute film with a guest appearance from Gordon Ramsay) and Hansel and Gretel (from Redbox– overall pretty good but kind of gorey— thankfully it looked very fake so I could just laugh it off! Haha).

purelytwins July 8, 2013 - 1:42 pm

Thanks for all the movies, we will have to check them out!

Erica July 8, 2013 - 2:04 pm

So fabulous! Yall have just amazing abs!! The plantain hash looks delicious.

THanks Erica

plantain hash!? HOW FUN 😀 What a great idea! Looks like a great weekend, girls! It was gorgeous here in London yesterday but raining today 🙁

Kristine July 9, 2013 - 3:21 pm

Great movies in theaters right now, The Lone Ranger and Despicable Me 2 (just when you thought those minions couldn’t get cuter, they do!). Because the weather has been crazy rainy here, I thought I’d treat myself to something new… PLANTAINS!yum!

purelytwins July 9, 2013 - 3:51 pm

We want to see Lone Ranger!
