Good morning, my little snow bunnies! It’s snowing like it means it outside, but thankfully I come prepared with an all-wheel-drive vehicle and sorel snow boots My breakfast this morning was so so so delicious – probably my favorite combination of all time.
Peanut butter, strawberry jelly and sliced banana on a honey wheat sandwich thin:
Yum, yum, yum! I actually love this exact combo with honey instead of jelly, too! This is a perfect post-workout meal, however I haven’t been getting up to workout this week, but tomorrow is a new day and maybe I’ll find the energy! I really do love getting in at least 30 minutes before work because it keeps my energy stable throughout the day and I go to bed at a reasonable time. Where this week, I find myself getting the afternoon slump so I grab green tea or coffee and have trouble falling asleep earlier.
On Tuesday night I took an intense turbo kick class which really kicked my ass! It was like cardio kickboxing on crack! Last night, I did this short thigh and leg workout that I absolutely have to share with you all. After 30 minutes on the stair thing I decided to try this workout (from toneitup) that I found on another blog www.elleandblair.com.
Here is the workout:
I did 15 reps of each move for a total of 3 circuits. When I tell you that my legs almost gave out on me as I started to walk down the stairs – I’m really not over exaggerating!! I had that feeling of burning pain and my quads felt like 1000 lbs. Awe-some!!! This entire routine took me 15 minutes and I did add weights to some of the moves. For example, the first move is a squat with a leg abduction – I added 3 lb weights and did shoulder raises with the move. One move targeting 3 different muscle groups = increased heart rate and crazy sweat! I was actually sweating more after this 15 minute routine than when I was on the stair machine! Bottom line: try this workout, you won’t regret it! Tonight I
plan to will do 30 min cardio and Pilates. Woop Woop!
Oh, I forgot to mention that since Monday, I went back on my sugar detox that I did back in November. This is day four and I feel fantastic already. The reason my post is called ‘one day at a time’ is because that’s literally how you have to treat your goals – whatever they may be. Focus on how you do today instead of where you want to be in six months and take it a-day-at-a-time. When six months rolls around, you will be exactly where you had hoped
Words of wisdom for the day: (I know I’ve posted this before)
