I’ve done it my friends! I have done the Jane Fonda Workout!

It was excellent fun.  I loved it!  Mind you, I was quite amazed at how flexible La Fonda was, and by contrast how feeble I was.  She is AMAZEBALLS in the workout video and can get her leg right up to her ear.  

I wonder if I could ever get to that stage?

Some of the exercises I could do fine (ahem, the ARM exercises) but I did have to sit a few out.  Including the bit where Jane tells us to go into a shoulder stand as if that’s the easiest thing in the world, then extend the legs back until your toes touch the floor behind your head.  

Um, Jane, this is the BEGINNERS workout…

This one made me chuckle away to myself…

and I absolutely loved all the squeals and whoops from all the balletic folk doing the workout along with Jane…  They are all having a REALLY good time…

and I am very pleased to learn from this article in The Hairpin that the guy on the left of Jane in this pic is called NED.

So after exerting myself a little bit, I had a can of beer.  I’m not sure that is the Jane Fonda way.  Then I made myself another dish from her great cookbook: Cooking For Healthy Living…

Here’s the pic from the book…

and here’s how mine turned out…

Yes, there is some iceberg lettuce with Ralph Hertz’s Thousand Island Dressing behind the salmon, but also my brand new – first ever – home made SAUERKRAUT!

OOH, it’s another winner dinner.  I really, really liked the sauce for this salmon.  Sweetcorn and sundried tomatoes.  Yes!  Thanks Jane, both for your fabulous workout video, and for your salmon recipe.  I love them both.
