Today was such a good day! It started it with a yoga private followed by a streak of crazy productivity at work and then a management team meeting, practicing yoga, teaching BodyPump and a CrossFit coach’s meeting. I finished my day with a conference call with a group of women where I talked about my take on food, nutrition and fueling my body. This was hosted by my friend Leslie Ann from LAQ Fitness. She’s doing a Fat Loss Cooking School series and invited me to be one of the guest speakers.
I didn’t wrap up all this stuff until after 9 tonight so this post will be brief so that I can enjoy some downtime before bedtime! Just a few photos for you.
Wednesday lunch was a salad with mixed greens, salmon, goat cheese, pecans, artichokes, dried cranberries and cucumbers.
I have been SO motivated to workout this week…which is a welcome change! We did a really different WOD at Metro on Wednesday which was based on power production and how much weight you could move in a set amount of time. We worked two minutes on, one minute off for two rounds at each of the following stations: sled push, bench press, goblet squats and kettlebell swings. It was such a mind game to figure out what weight you could move consistently for the two minutes to get the maximum score. I am sore today from the high reps at lighter weights!
Workouts this week have looked a little like this…
Monday: 3 mile run + 5 rounds of 20 air squats, 10 push ups, 10 lunges (each leg), 20 stability ball crunches
Tuesday: hot yoga + CrossFit (15-12-9 deadlifts and pullups)
Wednesday: hot yoga + CrossFit (WOD above)
Thursday: hot yoga + taught BodyPump
Lunch today was half of a wrap with turkey, arugula, tomato, havarti, avocado and spicy honey mustard and a cup of butternut squash soup.
And dinner after my long day was a snack of yummy cheeses and crackers and then I was craving protein and veggies. It was after 9:30 when I started on this dinner so the best I could do was defrosting salmon from the freezer and broiling it crusted in lots of spices and mixed Asian veggies on the side. I’m a little worried about how much salmon I eat…I’m probably having it around three times a week right now. I just read so much about mercury so I’m not sure if I should cut it back.
Signing off…thankful tomorrow is Friday!!!!!
