AWESOME Tuesday! ~ started out with BREAKFAST before heading to the Y for training my group of ladies in the gym…& they ROCKED IT! They worked so hard, it motivated me to work as hard as they had during my workout directly following. Those three sure do make me in a GREAT mood! They always impress me by how much FUN they have while doing their tough workouts. They show the peeps in the gym how FUN a workout is capable of being! it!
1/2 English Muffin with Naturally More PB & SF Jelly
Not pictured = 1/2 Naner
I had a KICK-BUTT strength workout (focused on arms, shoulders, back) in the gym this AM thanks to the ladies I trained beforehand. They gave me the ‘determined’ mind-set!
Worked for a bit at the Y after the workout, then headed home to grab lunch.
Handful of YUMMY tasting nuts! A mix of Cashew, Almond & Macadamia
1/2 Sweet Potato…sliced and sprayed with Olive Oil & sprinkled with Season Salt. (dipped them in Ketchup, sparingly)
Not pictured: slices of deli Honey Turkey Breast
Frozen Blackberries….Mmm mmm mmmmm!
Snack (before going back to Y to teach & practice classes) ~
1/2 cup Grapes + 10 Pop Chips (Parmesan)
Evening workouts at the Y included:
Teaching Get on the Ball class – uses a stability ball to do AB & BUTT exercises (45 minutes)
Turbo Kick ~ Round 39 – a FUN & high intensity cardio workout…I used to live on these workouts years ago. Brought back the good old days tonight!
Upright Bike (hills) for a quick 25 minutes – listened to my BodyPUMP 83 songs and started working on the choreography while I road!
Did I mention that I Exercise?
After those mighty good workouts, it was dinner-time.
3 eggs…kept the Yolk of 1 ~ the whites are ‘where it’s at’ friends! Chalk full of protein (~ 7 grams per egg roughly). The yolk has some excellent vitamins in it, but also contains bad cholesterol. I added some skim milk to my eggs, as always.
Spiced up my eggs with onion & red pepper, then topped them with LF Parmesan & home-made Salsa
In addition to the eggs I enjoyed…
1/2 a container of DELICIOUS Apple Cinnamon Greek Yogurt
* NO FAT (whoop!)
* 14 grams of Protein (this will FILL YOU UP!)
* 19 grams of Sugar (not great, but when only eat 1/2 at time then it is not quite so bad!)
Ended my night with what I considered my ‘dessert’ (because it tastes that yummy!) ~
Light Wheat Thomas English Muffin toasted (has 8 grams of fiber in one & only 100 calories!) & topped with Spray butter (pictured below) & SF Jelly
Spray butter made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil = SCORE!
Today was a GREAT day in my world of exercise and eating habits! I feel GOOD tonight. Hard work pays off. Change takes times (as I mentioned in my last post), but days like today make me want to stick with it so I can seen a change.
I hope your Tuesday was GREAT as well.
