Tuesday – Whoop whoop!
My day started out at home, with an IN HOME workout! The original game-plan was a treadmill run…but, my ankle wanted NO part of that this morning. No way. It was very painful when I tried to run (even with my brace on), so I decided to let it rest today. I think the extra cold weather really irritates it.
I walked 2.0 miles instead with major inclines the entire time (ankle does not hurt to walk…only to run. My facial expression = pouty lip). After the inclined walk, I did a combination of high intensity exercises + abdominal exercises & push-ups in my basement. It was a GREAT (and SWEATY) change-up!! Lots of BURPEES and HIGH KNEE SPRINTS to get the heart rate up, up, up!
Post-workout shake/Breakfast ~
THRIVE with Strawberries, Blueberries, & Unsweetened Almond Milk
After the rise & shine workout, I spent the rest of the morning with my sister and little britches (baby Jacyn!). They are home for most of the week. I wish I could just take the entire week off to be with them!! But, I cannot. At least I got to spend a couple hours with them this morning.
Lunch at work (around 12) was a baked Sweet Tater that I made last night. It was a rather large one, so it was quite filling!
At around 3 o’clock, I felt hungry again and needed more eats. I made my way to my lunch box and pulled out:
To eat with:
Earth Balance PB + Steckler Honey on a Whole Wheat Sandy Thin
Individual Serving Size Earth Balance PB ~ I used one today. They are AWESOME!!! Great for me & the ‘M’ word (Moderation!) on my PB intake…found them at Grounded.
The PB sandwich hit.the.spot. – I could have eaten two because of how DELICIOUS it was…but, I know better.
I closed up shop at work around 5:30, then hit the elliptical to get warm for about 20 minutes before instructing CX Worx class.
Class rocked tonight (or at least I thought so)! I LOVE release 13. Love it! Great class to increase your overall functional strength level, without a doubt. I could tell all of my participants brought their game-faces tonight – I was impressed!
Once the CX sweat-session ended, I was off to teach my New Year, New You program. Tonight in class…we exercised!! So, I got in yet another mini workout. Man, today was full of exercise! Whoop, whoop!
Dinner this evening was late. Around 8:30 by the time I got home and whipped it up. ~
Fiesta Gluten-Free Wrap with Grilled Chicken, Gouda Cheese Wedge, bit-o-BBQ sauce, and Asian Slaw Mix, Green Onions & Cracked Pepper
With a side of PEAS.
After I wiped out this plate of food (in no time because I was HUNGRY!) I went on to the sweet stuff:
Two Freshly Cut Kiwis
Followed by ~
A Serving of Dark Chocolate Pretzel Thins
Overall, my Tuesday was AWESOME!! Best day I have had in a few weeks, for several reasons. How was your Tuesday? Did you get in a good sweat session? And keep the eating habits healthy overall? I do hope so! Evaluate those weekly goals tonight.
Until next time ~
