Hey everyone! I’m blown away by your amazing, enthusiastic and kind responses to the Winter Shape Up. I’ve already received some wonderful feedback from those of you who have already tried the workouts (thank you!!!) and I’m just so stoked that ya’ll are liking it. Seriously, every one of you make this bloggy what it is and I am so grateful.
Enough with the mushy stuff, onto the EATS!
I had two bolitos before hitting the gym:
and did some chest, upper back and shoulder supersets with Ashley. ‘Twas a heart-thumping iron pumping workout 😀
When I got back to the casa, I had a sludge for protein replenishment:
And some water with MSM powder (for the benefits of MSM, check out this website)
Next, I made some raw herb crackers for tomorrow’s lunches. I’m not sure if I mentioned this to you guys yet, but starting tomorrow I’m going to be making raw lunches for some of my clients. I’m really excited about it 🙂 More info to come on that.
They’re in the dehydrator, crisping away. Friday’s rawnola is still in there too because it hasn’t gotten crunchy enough:/
I munched an apple with maca and cinnamon:
Then the pilot and I went on a 3 miler. It was nice and slow and relaxing… He’s a pretty good running buddy- I think I have a crush on him, though 😉
Lonchi was an egg scramble with egg whites, salmon burger, goat cheese, spinach and red pepper flakes with char-broiled (roasted) brussel sprouts (I like them BURNT!):
and a piece of my beloved millet bread (Food for Life brand):
I just got back to the casa after 3 training appointments and it’s time to make some dinner (and grab a snack while it’s cooking) 😀
Have a great night and if you try the Shape Up, please continue to let me know what you think of the workout!
Today’s tip: Always try to consume some high quality protein within 30-60 minutes of finishing a weight training sesh, along with some smart carbs and a little healthy fat. Your body needs the protein to repair the muscles that were just torn during the workout and will help them to grow back leaner and stronger, carbs to replenish your energy stores and healthy fat for “staying power”. A great way to get all of these in following a workout is through a smoothie with a scoop of your favorite protein, a large salad or some greek yogurt mixed with whole-grain cereal.
