Do you have 10 mins?

The biggest excuse I hear for not working out is "I don't have time!". Well, do you have 10 mins? Everyone can fit 10 mins into your schedule. Right? If you have 10 mins, I have the workout for you.

Ten Minute Trainer. You can get a great workout in 10 mins. Yes, you really can! You can also stack the workouts and do 3 and get a good 30 mins workout. Do one 10 min workout in the morning and another one in the evening. These are VERY flexible.
Check out the video below:

It's another Fit Club Monday! I love Monday's, a fresh start to a new week, a clean slate. It's time to forget the excuses and get busy! So today - for just 10 minutes, do some type of exercise! Dance around the house - great workout song today!!!! Go for a walk, during the commercials when you are watching TV, do jumping jacks, pushups and crunches. It's easy to find 10 mins in your day to move!

Today's recipe is from Skinny Bitch in the Kitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. I love this cookbook. If you haven't read Skinny Bitch ( their first book) I highly recommend you pick up a copy! You will look at your food a different way for sure!

Quick Tortilla Pizzas
Makes 4

4 (9-10 inch) whole wheat tortillas
1 cup Roasted red pepper sauce ( recipe below)
4-6 oz vegan mozzarella, shredded
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup halved and pitted Kalamata olives
2 cups loosely packed arugula (optional) (since this is hard to find around here, you can sub spinach)

Preheat over to 475 degrees F. Arrange tortillas on two rimmed baking sheets**
Top the tortillas with the Roasted Red Pepper sauce, cheese, onion and olives, dividing evenly. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and the edges are brown. Cut the pizzas into quarter top with the arugulas, if using and serve.

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
Makes 1 cup

1 cup drained jarred roasted red peppers
6 large basil leaves
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/8 tsp pepper

In the bowl of a food processor, combine all ingredients and pulse to form a coarse paste.

** For crispy pizza, bake the tortillas for 3 mins, flip em and bake em for 3 mins more. Then add the toppings and bake for 8-10 mins.

What would be your suggestion for a 10 min workout?


  1. I never have time...seriously! J/K...I try my darnedest! and I stretch like crazy but I still can't get rid of the flub from my kids...yes I can blame them. Oh and did you really have to mention pizza! Healthy or not.

  2. FAB!!! LOVE ur blog too! I recently just started trying to firm up my tummy after having the twins 18months ago! thanks for stopping by my blog , I hope you come back and become a follower :)

    Also wot is ur take on the wii fit ?


  3. Hey girl! Thanks for commenting on my blog! I like yours a lot. I am looking into finally getting back into shape. I go back and forth all of the time!That ten-minute trainer sounds great. That is about all of the time that I do have!

  4. Lady V - sorry that I mentioned pizza and working out in the same post! Hope you can find some time to workout!

    Niks - I think that no matter what you do, as long as you love it and will do it is good! I have a wii, but not the fit (yet...). I've heard good things about it. I say go for it!

    random - that is why I love 10 min trainer, if I need to save time, I just pop these in and get something done!

    Harriet - glad to provide some motivation today!!

  5. Today I decided I needed to take time to exercise, and I popped in my 30 minute pilates video. I'm going to try to keep it up, but today was only the first day!

  6. I'm not an expert, but situps or intervals on the treadmill might make a good 10 minute if I had a treadmill.:) That recipe looks delicious! Stopping by from SITS.

  7. I love the idea of 10 mins. Of course everyone has that. What a great way to look at working out. Plus your recipe looks great. I'm going to try it tonight...I was looking for something for dinner :-)

  8. thanks for stopping by and your blog is beautiful. I will try the 10 minutes and more.

  9. I have ten minutes in my day, just not 10 consecutive ones, LOL! Is that the guy from the Power 90x infomercials? thanks for the recipe. will try it, especially since it uses vegan cheese (still no dairy over here!)

  10. Hm, I had never thought of doing tortilla pizzas! I make pita pizza alot (or rather, I used to make them when we could have gluten), but tortillas seem a little less carby. Hope all is well! Thanks Dana

  11. I am def. ALL ABOUT that tortilla pizza, and the 10-mnute workout. ;) about the tortilla pizza, though--is there a reason it doesn't use tomato sauce? is it more calories or something?

    it looks delicious! :-D

  12. I love the idea of dancing around the house!!
