Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend. Filled with fun, laughter, love, and friendship!
I ended up having the weekend off, love that :D
My day started about 8 am...I slept in a little this morning. I had a cup of coffee out on the patio with PT. He got up at 5ish and was working in the yard doing some weed pulling ect. It was already well in the 90's by that time. We took a dip in the pool to cool off a bit. I love swimming early in the morning..so refreshing.
SR was coming over about 9:30 to do our cardio workout. Today is Burn it off. Since I'd already been up for over an hour, I knew I couldn't workout on an empty tank...if I'm gonna do that, I need to do it within 30 minutes of waking up.
I fixed PT some pancakes and sausage, but I had a fiji apple (my fav!) spread with Tj's raw unsalted crunchy AB and drank 25 oz of water..perfect preworkout fuel up :D
9:30 am...hit the gym for the one and only Burn it off..the words INTENSE and EXTREME come to mind to describe this workout. I dug deep and gave it my 100%. Sweatin bullets when we finished. I can tell my cardiovascular system is responding nicely to my workouts.
After working out, I waited about an hour to refuel....then had a Green protein shake. I really wanted to add a nana to the shake, but I'm out of nanners, so I used Blueberries and 1/2 peach. It was very good and gave me a nice level of energy.
That kept me full and satisfied for about 3 hours, and then it was time for my next meal. I had a bowl of oatmeal with Bee pollen, wheat germ, and ground flax seed and then had 4 hard boiled egg whites.
Late aftenoon, we decided to head out to the movies with a couple friends. I remembered Brandi's instructions on how to make your own healthy popcorn and decided to give it a try. It turned out fantastic. I used EVOO and sprinkled with sea salt and also a tiny bit of garlic powder. Click Here to check out Bran appetit and get the instructions.
No more fattening, butter loaded, salt laddened movie theater poppcorn ever again! Believe me when I say that this was just as good. And I knew exactly what was in it.. :D Thanks Brandi!
I also made up a bag of trail mix..using raw almonds, walnuts, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, sunflower seeds, pepitos, jumbo raisins...devine delish! Doesn't it look yummy??
My movie goods..plus a bottle of water not pictured ;)
Just kicking back the rest of the evening. Kept the rest of my meals very simple. Non fat yogurt with some berries for a light dinner.
Exercise rest day for me tomorrow. Planning on hitting up the farmer's market that I never got to do today and also some regular grocery shopping and a Trader Joe's pit stop..lol
Keep it clean!
