Happy Wednesday. I hope that y’all are having a good week. It seems that everyone I have talked to is really busy with work, final summer vacations, etc.
Just checking in today with eats + workouts from the past few days.
I did this workout on Sunday along with 50 GHD sit ups after and couldn’t move for the next two days. If you are looking for a new way to challenge yourself with squats and cardio…try the 2-for-1 wall ball. It had my heart pounding and my legs burning.
I have been yogaing every day this week and that’s been feeling good for my sore body, although up dogs are not the most pleasant thing given how sore my abs are from the GHDs. I can’t believe how sore they make me because they don’t hurt that bad when you’re doing them.
I couldn’t sit in front of my computer any longer so I did hop into a spin class at the last minute last night that a friend of mine was teaching at the gym. And you know how I feel about spinning. I was a sweaty mess at the end.
Breakfast Tuesday was Chobani Pineapple with granola, peaches, banana and peanut butter.
And breakfast today was a homemade spin on Whole Foods’ Double Green Smoothie. I went in the store this morning to get one but decided that I needed to stop paying $6 for smoothies and just buy the ingredients to keep at work. I did invest $20 in dates, almond butter, almond milk, etc but it was worth it.
Here’s what went in this smoothie…
1 cup coconut milk
2 cups spinach
1/2 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon almond butter
Handful of ice (maybe 1/2 cup)
We have a VitaMix at the gym so it can handle the dates and makes smoothies with really great texture.
Lunch Tuesday was a salad extravaganza from Whole Foods (you don’t even want to see my mint.com WF category…). I couldn’t resist adding one of their amazing sweet potato biscuits to my plate.
Today’s lunch was a cup of chicken tortilla soup along with some salad and half a chocolate chip cookie.
Tuesday dinner was so good. Stuffed chicken with swiss and prosciutto and spinach and artichoke.
And a whole bunch of roasted veggies from the farmers market.
Now time for a quick cardio session, coaching CrossFit, teaching yoga and hopefully taking yoga. 😀
