Helloooo! Hope you all had a great day back to work and escuela. My day has been bueno, but looooooooong. As things get crazier and crazier this semester, posting will be a little sporadic. I’ll still post every day, but who knows what time it will be
I started the day way earlier than humanly necessary and had an Early bird b-fast cookie:
I topped this one with goji berries and a sprinkle of FEED granola that I picked up at Fresh Market in Orlandy.
I went to the base gym to teach 7am Zumba and, shocker, no one showed up. I know for a fact that this is WAY too early for Zumba- my Wednesday night class is usually packed but some Monday morning, no one shows. I don’t blame them—7am is PT hour, so military guys are all over the place and it’s more lift-weights-and-grunt time than prime booty shaking time.
So that my trip wasn’t worthless, I did a short workout before coming home to the sleeping puppies:
|Stairmaster||20 minutes, level 6|
|Stability ball hamstring curl||body weight, 3 sets of 12|
|Inner thigh stability ball plie and squeeze||body weight, 3 sets of 12|
|V-glutes||3 sets of 12|
|Standing stability ball calf raises||20 lbs, 3 sets of 10|
|Leg extension||25 lbs, 3 sets of 12|
|Total time: 45 minutes|
When I got back to the casa, I had a snack of a two egg white stada with salsa, Ezekiel and a macaroon (for, ahem, healthy fat)
I got ready for work and had this before leaving:
Work was pretty uneventful, and I came home for my lunch break to make the following:
Salad with chickpeas and Goddess dressing and an Ezekiel soup-dipper
Whole Foods creamy tomato soup (1.5 cups)
Tomato soup is so comforting. It wraps my heart in creamy goodness haha.
I went back to work to TA one more class, then came home and did something I haven’t done in forever: took an hour nap with the puppies.
Waking up so early for nonexistant Zumba is seriously exhausting.
When I woke up, I was snacky (of course) so I had some patriotic fruit:
Then I hit the gym for a insane booty-kicking run sesh. More to follow in the “something to do” section at the end of this post.
I came back, with the U-shaped sweat on my shirt that’s a sign of a killer workout and made some quick dinner before heading to class.
In a skillet,
-1 onion, diced and cooked on med-high in olive oil for 5 minutes
-2 cloves garlic
-1 can organic whole, peeled tomatoes
-italian seasoning, salt, pepper, red chili flakes
-3/4 cup chickpeas
-2 servings of shrimp (which I defrosting beforehand)
Here’s what I got:
I LOOOOOOOVE SHRIMP!!!
Here’s my serving (I saved the other half for tomorrow.. so yes, leftover’s are in the near future)
Succulent little shrimpies.
I went to class and teach decided it would be a nice night to keep us late (arghhhh) so I am so ready for jammie time.
Hope you all have a wonderful evening and I’ll see ya tomorrow!
Something to do: Treadmill workout!!! Here’s the one I did today: Run It Off A couple of changes that I made were that I walked at 4.0 for 3 minutes to warm up (instead of 3.5) and also ran an additional 7 minutes at 6.0 mph with a 2.5% incline before cooling down. This was an INTENSE and beautifully short workout. Let me know if any of you try it!!
