Day 2 Ripped in 30 Challenge

on February 28, 2012

Hello hello!   How’s Tuesday treatin you?  I hope it’s been a good day for you. 🙂    It was a fairly busy day at work, but I had a  half day, so it was nice to leave at noon.  Yay!


The Challenge is going really well.  I got up early this morning, but chose to enjoy the morning and take my time eating my breakfast.  It was nice. 🙂    There were mornings that if I didn’t get my workout in I would feel guilty about it.  That is something that will change.  I don’t want to feel guilt when it comes to my workouts.  You know?  🙂  Anyway, back to my breakfast.



I am down to one slice of the Ener-G bread.  Overall, I have really liked the bread.  When it comes to nutrition it basically ranks right up there with the English Muffins that I was eating. 



I seem to be the queen of random lunches, but I really do like this lunch and it really fills me up!  Dannon Key Lime Greek Yogurt, gluten-free granola (yum!), and 1 tangerine.

I also had a dark chocolate adora disk.  Calcium!



I wanted to give you a break down of the workout that I am doing this week. Level 1 on Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30 goes like this:

The basis of the workout is the 3, 2, 1 system.  3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of abs.  She starts the workout with about a 3 to 4 minute warm-up, then you move into the workout, and finally she ends it with a short cool-down.  Three circuits make up the 34 minute workout.  Some of the moves that you will do are: push-ups, fast feet, skaters, squat press, and single arm rows.  Trust me, you will be drenched after you finish.  🙂


Post workout snack:

Banana/blueberry smoothie:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp of PB2
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds
  • 1 cup of Coconut milk



On the menu:  grilled pork chop, sweet potato wedges and something green. 


I am off!  Have a great afternoon! 🙂
