My alarm sounded too early this morning…5AM “wake-up calls” on Saturday mornings are not exactly my favorite. I got up, got ready, packed all the ingredients I would need to make a THRIVE shake for breakfast at the Y, tossed in an extra banana because it looked good, and took off.
I waited until my hunger hit this morning before heading into the kitchen at the Y to make my shake – around 7:30ish. Got everything out…realized I forgot to put a packet of THRIVE in my bag (darn-it!!). I was so bummed. That is what waking up at 5AM gets you – errors.
Alternative Breakfast ~
Banana + Zone Perfect: Mint Chocolate Bar
I worked up until Yoga class this morning, then joined in on the action. It was an AWESOME Saturday morning stretch session, as always. I love Saturday morning yoga practice ~ such a great start to the weekend.
Yoga both energized and motivated me! When it ended, I was ready for a workout: part 2. I needed a good strength training session, so I decided to create my own TRX strength workout.
An hour later I was a sweaty mess, my muscles had most definitely hit fatigue, and I had kicked my own butt! It was one of the best TRX workouts I have had yet…I felt STRONG when I finished!
Post-workout Lunch at home ~
I spent the first part of the afternoon cleaning and making home-made granola! I used the same ingredients listed on the home-made granola I buy from Grounded Health Food Store (it is DELICIOUS!). I did not follow a recipe (I wish I had their recipe!!), but rather just created my own. It did not end up tasting exactly like the Grounded Granola, but it is still SO GOOD!
KT’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola
I ate too much of this tasty stuff. Enough to keep me satisfied for the rest of the afternoon while I accomplished some painting at the house. I plan on sharing ALOT of this deliciousness I made today with others so I do not continue to eat all of it!!
The later part of the afternoon & early evening flew by today. I spent it listening to music and singing aloud while painting closets again!! ~ I know, I lead such an exciting life (Hah!).
Dinner this evening ~
Baby Kale + Mixed Greens, Asian Slaw Blend, Green Onions, Walnuts, Craisens, Cracked Pepper, and Asiago Cheese
Grilled Chicken Tenders (ended up eating a 3rd one – not pictured) + BBQ
Did I mention it was Saturday Night Wine Night? Well, it is. Therefore, after dinner I enjoyed another glass of the wine my sister gave me. It is very tasty ~ I will definitely be purchasing a second bottle.
I planned ahead today by packing my CX tubes & bringing them home with me from the Y today. I also brought with me the CX Release 14 DVD from my DVD stash, just in case I get stuck doing an ‘at home’ workout tomorrow due to the weather. My original game plan for tomorrow was an 8-mile ‘dreadmill’ run (I am ready for the outdoors!!) at the Y…but, I may alter that plan-of-action given today’s extra tough TRX workout. My legs might be too tired for 8 miles. Time will tell, time will tell.
What is your workout plan for tomorrow? Hopefully you have a tentative one in place!
Keep up those healthy eating habits (and if you make granola…do yourself a favor and share it with others so you are only left with a small serving to enjoy!)
Until next time ~
