I’m going to combine my weekend and workout posts tonight because I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get to it tomorrow.
My weekend started early with a girl’s night at Reid’s. It was “National Drink Wine Day” after all!
I had the most amazing dinner of beef short rib over sticky rice with baby bok choy and shitake mushrooms.
Eating your sweet potatoes out of an empty almond butter jar might not look pretty but it tastes so good!
Healthy Friday night dinner. Roasted broccoli, roasted parsnips and a thigh/leg chicken quarter.
Saturday lunch after teaching yoga. Leftover chicken on a bed of spinach/romaine with apples, cranberries, avocado and almonds.
We had friends over for wine and apps on Saturday night.
Chips and guac. We love these plantain chips from Trader Joe’s.
Cheese plate. (I’m still off of dairy and gluten for the most part at this point.) I just had to gaze at this longingly.
Zoe was so super excited to have company over.
As were the other two! 🙂
Sunday morning brought the first post-Whole30 smoothie. I think I went 50+ days without one.
We had my fiance’s brother and his family over for dinner tonight and I’m now feet up on the couch with some hot tea and he just delivered me some homemade chocolate banana avocado mousse. Perfect end to the weekend.
Quick look at the workouts…
2 miles on treadmill to warm up + WOD
1o ring rows
15 back squats
20 wall balls
25 kettlebell swings
400 meter run/sprint
I just wrote last week that Monday is usually yoga day but due to my teaching schedule and an added private, I couldn’t fit it in. I decided to do a more CrossFit-ish type workout at the gym. I wanted to focus on squatting thus the reason for the squats straight into the wall balls, which was really fun time. This took me a little over 22 minutes to complete.
Hot yoga + strength
One of my friends had been asking to meet me to lift so we met at the gym on Friday night for a workout date. We did a few supersets.
12 single arm chest press, each arm, alternating arms
15 single arm rows, each arms from a plank position on bench
10 plyo push ups
20 resistance band reverse flies
5 mini band monster walks (forwards and backwards)
10 Bicep curls (she also did a press overhead after the curl but my shoulders were smoked from week of workouts)
7 Barbell roll outs
7 barbell front squats, 13 back squats
15 ring digs (I skipped the ring dips)
4 mile run
How was your weekend? What was the highlight?
Do you pups like having guests over?
