Is it Sunday already? Goodness.
I do LOVE Sundays. Especially when they involve church at CCJ. I slept in, went to the 10 o’clock service, then headed home to enjoy a SHAKE!!!
Thrive Shake for Breakfast
My shake ingredients have not changed at all (does that surprise you?) – Still using the same combo of: strawberries, blurbs, almond milk, and a little H20. Plus one packet of THRIVE nutrient mix. Blend it all up and it creates one. scrumptious. nutritious. breakfast.
Gym time was on the agenda today. I wanted to be going over to the Y for a run (or even taking a run outside since it felt so nice out), but…that was not going to happen (sad face + a tear or two).
When driving to the Y, I decided I would focus on my core by doing CX Worx 13. I did it twice through, but skipped over two tracks that involved heavy use of my legs/ankles. My core was feeling STRONG by the end of the 50 minute CX session. I also did some BodyPUMP 88 – three of the upper body tracks: Triceps, Biceps, and Shoulders. ~ Overall, the workout ‘worked.’ It was no calorie blasting run by any means. Rather, a sculpting & toning session, I suppose.
Post Workout Eats:
A perfectly ripe Banana ~ I have not eaten a banana in weeks.
It tasted AMAZING.
I also snacked on:
Salt & Pepper Pistachios!
Do you see my nails in the above pic? Aren’t they awesome?!
I am loving the GOLD ~ new color I picked up, as I saw it fitting for the Holidays.
For Dinner this evening:
Romaine, Broccoli Slaw, Craisens, Walnuts, Pepper, and Reserve Blend Cheese
I was going to make a sweet potato, but a salad just sounded so yummy. So, I went with the salad instead & also had to get my protein fix:
Three Grilled Chicken Tenderloins: 2 BBQ + 1 Fajita seasoned
Right around the corner is a NEW YEAR – 2014 is coming quick! Do you have your goals written out yet? Goals are next on my agenda this evening – to think about what I want to accomplish in 2014. I like to write out my goals in the back of my planner. That way, I always have them to refer to throughout the entire year. The best part is crossing them off once they are accomplished!! I can think of one fitness goal off hand currently.
A 2014 Fitness goal of mine: To complete the Indy Mini in under 2 hours. I have completed this race twice in the past and finished around 2:03 both times. My goal time for the 2014 Indy Mini will be a finish of 1:55 (or under that, of course)!
I will fill you in on more 2014 goals after tonight.
I am off to get my things together for work tomorrow (pack lunch, workout clothes, etc.) and then ICE my ankle while I say a few prayers for quick healing.
Please take advantage of your ability to move by being sure to get in one heck-of-a KICK-A** workout tomorrow! Be it Cardio or Strength Training, I do not care…just get in the gym & get SWEATY people!
Until next time ~
