We’re halfway through the week! I’m already on a roll today after finally get a great night’s sleep last night. I always sleep a lot better when I shut off all media 30 minutes before bedtime and just read quietly in bed. It makes a huge difference when I can calm my mind after a day of internet, tv, phones, etc.
Riley went golfing yesterday so I was on my own for dinner. I ended up making leftovers from my shrimp bowl the other night. I just heated them up and spooned the shrimp and veggies onto a whole wheat tortilla. I topped it off with a little cheese, sour cream, and some sriracha for extra kick. Nice and tasty!
Workout & Breakfast
This morning I hit the gym ready to really get moving. Since I’ve been dragging a bit these past few days I was ready to push myself today. I tend to stick with a routine of cardio + 1 body part, but today I really wanted a circuit that worked multiple muscle groups at the same time. This helped me be super efficient and also kept my heart rate up the whole time. My cardio of choice today was running on the treadmill. I increased my speed every few minute until I was running at 8.5 mph.
The kettlebell I wanted was being used so I switched the kettlebell swings out for squats with the medicine ball. Here are links to some of the moves:
I learned from all your comments yesterday that dancing at the gym is a totally normal thing! So to the old man (the one who wears khakis to the gym? You know who you are…) who was giving me weird looks, please stop judging me.
After the gym, I was craving chocolate and peanut butter flavors. Fortunately, I have an awesome go-to recipe for a chocolate and peanut butter protein smoothie. It was the perfect day to make this smoothie too, since my banana was on it’s last leg. I have this weird thing where the second a banana starts to get spots, I don’t want it anymore. It’s incredibly wasteful, but I can’t help it. Luckily, my banana was saved and I avoided eating dessert for breakfast!
I have a lot to do at the office, so I’m off to work. Have a great day!
Do you have any weird food quirks? I prefer to call my banana discrimination a “quirk”, because it sounds better than “neurotic habit”.
Do you crave healthy food after a workout or junk food?
I normally crave healthy food. One of the reasons I work out first thing is that is sets me up to eat healthy the whole day!
