Started the morning with a workout at the TRACK with Tiff as planned – check it out under ‘Daily Workouts.’ Took my legs a little while to warm-up, but once they did it was a GREAT circuit style workout, as always!
Post-workout eats/breakfast included:
Hard-boiled Egg White (NO Yolk!)
1 serving (1 cup) 1% Low Fat Chocolate Milk
and not pictured: a half of a Naner
Lunch today was a meal, since I had to work tonight & knew it would be easiest to take Shakeology with me for dinner.
The Basics: 1/2 Low Carb, High Fiber Whole Wheat Tortilla with Sweet Baby Rays, Deli Turkey, and LF Parmesan (pic 1)…then added the extras: Romaine, Onion, and Red Pepper (pic 2)
I also had a small side of Pasta Salad with this half of a wrap (like last night) & fresh Arehn’s Strawberries to follow! (neither of these are pictured)
Yesterday I received a package I in the mail. Today, I opened it!…guess what it was?!
My BodyPUMP 82 routine to learn! – I am PUMPED!
Haven’t done anymore than open it & take a look at the song selections, but I’m sure it will be a challenging set of tracks just as BodyPUMP 81 is currently!
This afternoon I ran a few errands, took Sophie for a walk at the trail, then made these “little bites of heaven”…
Healthified Oat Craisen Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies!
I’ve made them before & they are SCRUMPTIOUS! – The recipe is posted under ‘Must Make Recipes’….or will be soon!
I snacked on TWO of them before heading to work. – They were little, practically bite size I tell ya! (okay, so two bites per cookie is better.)
I went to work at the Y tonight. Thought I was going to be working the Front Desk from 5-9, but ended up having to fill in as a sub for an instructor who could not make it! Got to teach TWO unexpected classes tonight…meaning got in two unexpected workouts tonight! I LOVE unexpected workouts!
Taught a 45 minute Get on the Ball Class (works butt & abs using stability ball) & then an hour 5k Training class (do run/walk followed by some strength & cardio exercises).
Ended the evening working the Front Desk, by which time I was BEAT & ready for a little Shakeology!
Tonight I made my SHAKEOLOGY with SKIM MILK vs. Trop50 OJ since I ate quite a few berries + a half Naner today (the berries were so tasty, I just could NOT stop munching on them!) & wanted to avoid any more extra sugar that I would have got in the Trop 50 Orange Juice. Milk was the better option, so I gave it a try…& liked it! Will probably make my shakes that way more often now!
(note: I still added vanilla light yogurt & a few frozen berries as usual to my shake to make it YUMMY!)
Needless to say, I AM WORN-OUT tonight! The unexpected workouts did me in, especially after the already challenging workout at the track this morning with Tiff. My legs are screaming “SIT DOWN ALREADY.” – So I am doing just that.
Did you get in your TOUGH TUESDAY workout today?! I sure hope so. Keep working hard & keep up the healthy eating habits as we make our way into Halfway Wednesday.
PS, as I was typing I decided to munch on a few pieces of Peppered Beef Jerky! – the workouts must have revved the metabolism, because the Shakeology didn’t quite cut it tonight.
I really like this one. It is so freaking true.
