Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday so far
I started mine with an avocolada sludge:
It was scrumptious—so creamy and thick, that I had to eat it with a spoon I like feeling like I’m having a milkshake for bfast
I spent a good part of the morning cleaning the upstairs and our casa is now spotless, and then made some lonchi.
Raw Party Wraps
Looks like a party on a plate, ehh?
I took romaine leaves and spread chickpea miso on there and topped each leaf with cucumber, bell pepper, carrot, and a drizzle of almond butter.
I love the miso/almond butter combo:
Nutty + salty = lip smackin’ good
When I got into work, the other trainer (who is Novice Mr. Georgia—pretty darn impressive) decided to ask me what I had for lunch…. I was like “Are you sure you want to know??”
So I got to explain miso paste to him and my romaine wraps while he devoured a plate of Southern BBQ He was like “that’s cool Gina Pina, my miso paste-eating friend”
Are there any *weird* foods you’re loving right now??
When I got home from training appt #1 (I took her some Super Charge Me cookies) and 35 minutes ellipticizing and back and biceps with Jeni, I grabbed a snack and took the puppies out.
Mango and kiwi:
I want summer fruit ALL year!!!!!
Well I’m going back to work and will probably go to the movies with some friends when I get out.
Have a great night!
*I asked Jeni for the cheesecake recipe and she said she would email it to me.. and that I could share it with you guys So expect a delicious recipe soon!
Today’s tip: Make sure you’re alternating high and low intensities for your cardio workouts. There’s no point in going balls to the wall everyday, which is a major reason why I take it pretty easy when I’m not teaching. Remember *change creates change* (my motto) and doing the same thing (in this case, intensity) every day is not going to shock your muscles into seeing the results you’re looking for. That’s why it’s a smart move to alternate sprints with steady state, hills and flats, etc. etc. blah blah. Shake things up a little!
