Back to normal!

on April 18, 2012

Hello!!  Yes, it’s almost 10 pm, but I really wanted to stop in and tell you about my day! 🙂  Whew!  It was another long one.  As soon as we walked in this morning, it was go time!  I didn’t stop until 2 pm.  It seemed like everything went wrong today too….which made my brain work overtime. 🙂

When I got home, I settled in and got right into my workout clothes, changed my shoelaces, and started Amy Dixon’s Breathless.

 

 

 

I wanted to give you the break-down of what goes into this 60 minute Tabata style work out.

  1. Jumping Jacks
  2. Skaters
  3. beach volleyball set
  4. high knees
  5. Mt Climbers or donkey kicks
  6. Ole lunges
  7. boxers challenge
  8. pogo jumps

Each circuit consists of doing each move for 20 seconds and then resting for 10 seconds eight times.  What it boils down to, is in fact a breathless hour!!  This is probably my favorite workout right now.  🙂

 

 

 

Breakfast:

 

Overnight Oats!  I haven’t had this in a long time.  I have missed you!

  • Old Fashion oats
  • 1/2 tsp of chia seeds
  •  Rudi’s Gluten-free granola 1/4 a cup
  • chocolate coconut milk
  • almond milk
  • 1 tbsp of Barney almond butter

 

 

 

Lunch:

 

Cottage cheese and roasted almonds.  I also had some chicken with bbq sauce

 

 

Afternoon snack:

Love these things!!

 

 

Dinner:

  

After my workout, I had a smoothie.  I also got the ingredients together for my breakfast.

 

Banana/Raspberry Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp of flax
  • 1/4 cup of chocolate coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup of 35 Calorie Almond milk
  • 1 tbsp of Barney Almond Butter
  • Lot’s of spinach!!

 

Workout:

Amy Dixon Breathless

As I mentioned above, this is a great workout!  When I first got started, I really thought about stopping because I wasn’t feeling it at first.  I thought about how I have never regretted doing a workout, but I have always felt bad about skipping one.  I also thought about all my Sweat Pink Ambassador Sisters and gutted it out!!  Whoop!!

 

 

I am normally not that into fashion, but I want to make an effort in wearing something that I feel pretty in.  What do you think?  I really like the shirt a lot.  🙂

 

 

 

Exhibit A.  Spider Bite.  Ugly, Yes. :/   This was the next day….It does look better now. 🙂

 

 

Meal plan for 4/19/2012:

Breakfast:  Overnight Oats/Strawberries

Snack:  Mandarin orange

Lunch:  Cottage cheese/roasted almonds, chicken, half an apple

Snack:  clif bar

Dinner:  Mexican Quinoa dish

  1. Spider bites suck. The last one I had was last summer on my foot while doing my workout outside instead of inside. That smoothie sounds good right about now!

  2. I like your shirt too! Very cute! Your smoothie also looks really yummy- I will have to try it sometime.

  3. Mmmm… Cottage cheese! Yum!

    Love that shirt – I think it’s perfect (albeit headless) =)

    I love your outfit! Too cute! And those shoes are right up my alley. I love the bright colors. Spider bites are the worst!!! Hopefully its not too itchy.
