Well today Day 2 of the inferno has been extremely tough with the workouts… but A LOT easier with the eating 🙂 We did not end up having work so we were more than happy since today’s workouts are more of an intense day. Today has been a very productive day. I still got to sleep in, work out, and get tons of chores done. I have no idea what I am going to do with the rest of my day. Possibly start on my summer assignments, go shopping, take a nap, watch a movie. I really do not know. When you finally have a day off, there is so much that you want to do that it is hard to choose. 😛
Breakfast this morning was Melon and Yogurt
We were supposed to have:
6 oz. low-fat strawberry yogurt(we had blueberry instead because that is all that was in the fridge)
3/4 cup cubed cantaloupe
1 tsp. honey
Cantaloupe is usually the one fruit that I will never buy, I HATE IT! But who knew drizzled with a little honey it could taste so good.
More cantaloupe please! lol. 😉
After breakfast Whit, Ash, and I completed Classes:
Fire 45 Class/HITT 20 Class/Stretch 10 Class
It felt like the longest workout ever, but I felt great afterwards!
Once our workout was over we all were starving! So we decided to have snack 1:
1 scoop of Shakeology
8 0z. water
2 tsp. peanut butter
We also each added half a banana because we all felt this was just not enough today.
Shakeology is literally the best snack after a workout, I LOVE IT! You are literally getting everything that your body needs all in one shake.
Here is some info. copied straight from the website:
How It Works*
This patent-pending daily nutritional shake helps your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently while allowing for better absorption of the essential nutrients you need. A proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and prebiotics helps your body progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time from eating today’s highly processed foods.
At the same time, whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing your body to shed stored fat while the more than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke.
LUNCH: Turkey Avocado Wrap
3 slices turkey breast
1 whole wheat tortilla
1/2 tomato, diced
1/4 avocado, sliced
handful of mixed greens
1 Tbsp. nonfat Italian dressing
This was such an awesome wrap! I have literally not had one this good in forever, and the ingredients were so simple.
It has been kind of nice following an eating/ workout plan this week, then I do not have to waste a bunch of time figuring out what I am going to eat or what workout that I am going to do. It is already decided for me!
Well I really cannot decide what to do for the rest of the day… what do you like to do on your day off?
Also I know this is kind of random, but have any of you heard Miley Cyrus new CD? A bunch of people hate her, but I got to admit it I am a big fan. I absolutely love her new CD! All of the songs are so upbeat and fun. It would definitely make a good workout playlist for any of you that are looking for new music!
1 Tbsp. peanut butter, spread across 2 celery sticks.(We ran out of celery so used baby carrots instead)
Top with 10 to 15 raisins
I have never had carrots with pb, but let me tell with the raisins and everything the whole combo was excellent. I never chopped so fast on these carrots today. Then I licked the whole bowl clean. YUM! This is a definite repeater snack 🙂
Grilled Teriyaki Salmon with Ginger Rice and Bok Choy
Two 4-oz pieces of wild salmon, without the skin
3 Tbs. teriyaki marinade or sauce
2 pineapple rings, canned in juice, drained
1 garlic clove
1 medium head of bok choy, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1/3 cup of brown rice
1 tsp. powdered ginger
Directions: Marinate the salmon in teryaki overnight, or for an hour befor grilling. Grill the salmon for 5 minutes on each side. Place pineapple slices on the grill for 2 minutes and sear.
Add rice, 2/3 cup of water, and 1 tsp. powdered ginger into a rice cooker or saucepan. Cook on low heat until rice is tender. Meanwhile, spritz nonstick cooking spray and 1/2 tsp. sesame oil into a frying pan. Saute 1 garlic clove and the bok choy until soft, yet still crisp.
