  • my name: Naomi
  • where i live: I am from Boston, Ma-born and raised! (well technically right outside the Boston area, west of the city)but I consider myself Boston born!
  • my blog: OneFitFoodie. (www.onefitfoodie.com)
  • my move: I am a ACSM certified personal trainer and graduated college in 2008 with a BS in exercise Science so I know lots about great moves. I will share some moves with you!

Plank on the Bosu Ball. I love this move on the Bosu Ball, it is great for strengthening your entire core (including back, abs and obliques). As a matter of fact, I love the bosu for lots of exercises. Place your forearms on the bosu ball while keeping your body away from your arms, so you are not falling onto them. Extend your feet out and keep your hips down. Hold for 1 minute (or as long as you can!)

Tricep overhead press, while standing on the Bosu ball. Hold a 5-15lb weight in your hands and place them over your head. Keep your elbows close to your head (ears) and extend your arms overhead keeping your elbow facing toward the wall in front of you, not out to the side

  • my meal: Now that I have shared two of my favorite moves I would love to share with you some delicious recipes! First is a great post workout meal. It is full packed with protein and I topped it with some unpictured carbs of Kashi Puffs cereal to get in those High GI carbs which is key after a hard workout!

High protein Omelet

Ingredients:

o 3 eggwhites

o 1 scoop vanilla, cinnamon or chocolate Protein powder

o 1/4 C unsweetened almond milk

o ½ banana slices

Directions

o Combine eggwhites, protein powder in a magic bulllet, blender or whisk together by hand

o Pour onto a hot skillet and place the sliced bananas on top while in the pan.

o When one side looks done (begins to bubble on top) Flip it over and continue cooking till all done!

o Top with some fresh berries, kashi puffs, or sugar free maple syrup (or all 3!)

Another healthy recipe:

OneFitFoodie Cherry Cinnamon granola

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 c dried cherries
  • 3/4 c dried cranberries
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (extra sprinkled ontop too if you want!)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 c honey or agave (I combined both)
  • 1/4-1/2 c warm water

Method

  • Place dry ingredients, nuts and seeds in one bown
  • combine wet ingredients in another bowl
  • pour wet into dry and mix with a wooden spoon. Add dried fruit and continue until it is all well coated
  • lay onto a sprayed baking sheet
  • bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, checking every 10 minutes and moving it around with the wooden spoon
  • Enjoy!

naomi. that omelet looks like my dream come true. need. it. now.

okay, not gonna lie, the bosu ball still totally scares me. I know it is something I will have to overcome before I become a trainer myself. Perhaps I should start with the plank, that seems very doable and non-dangerous :)

That omelet!! I must try that, with peanut butter :)

That granola looks really really good!

I have yet to give the bosu ball a try but really want to! Actually now that I think of it I don’t think my gym has one.

I love the Bosu- they have a class at the gym that uses it and it’s super fun. Glad you reminded me about that- must get back there.

And thanks for reminding me that I need to start wearing my granny glasses. That supercute photo of you holding the tray of apps? I always thought that it was a photo of you with your thumbs kind of pointing at yourself as if you’d just finished a race and were indicating “yay me, I just finished the race!!” hee hee. Both are cute…I my eyes are just bad :-)
