Holiday excitement/anxiety is…

2 Nov

Slowly creeping up on me!

Does anyone else feel it? Today is November 2nd. I cannot believe how fast October passed! Today all I could think about is how much x-mas shopping I still have to do, school work until finals, our 18th b-day approaching, and of course the baby will be here to in a few weeks! I am excited and stressing at the same time 🙂 Speaking of x-mas shopping, I cannot wait until BLACK FRIDAY! Do you guys like shopping on that day? I do not know what it is, but something about waking up at the but crack of dawn and running like crazy to catch all of the great sales… just gives me a high!

Breakfast this morning was P-R-O-T-E-I-N Oats!

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp. chia
  • 1 tsp. flax
  • 1 tbsp. shakeology
  • 1 tbsp. caramel toffee fudge whey protein
  • 2-3 drops vanilla stevia
  • 2/3 drops maple extract

Top with

  • egg puff(2 egg whites)
  • dollop Jiffy All Natural pb
  • Kashi Go-Lean Crunch- Honey Almond Flax
  • 1 dried fig chopped up

After breakfast digested then it was time to do some boot camp: This is one of Fitnessista’s workouts from this month!

-Warm up 5 min cardio of choice (Whit and I did the warm-up from Insanity)

Superset 1: Bicep curl and tricep dip (15 of each, repeat 3 times)

Superset 2: Step-ups on the right (10), on the left (10), sumo squat and crunch (10), left (10)– repeat 2 times

Cardio blast: 5 min. Start at an easy jog or walking pace with 5-6% incline. Add 1% incline every minute until you have reached 5 min (if you need to take it down before then, do it)

Superset 3: Pushups (12- start in full plank and drop to your knees to finish if you need to), bent-over wide row (15)- repeat 3 times

Superset 4: Stability ball back extension (12-15) and Stability ball crunch (hold a weight at the ends with both hands,keeping your arms close to your ears to make it more challenging- 15)- repeat 3 times

Cardio blast: 5 min sprints. Go for 1 min at an easy pace, 30 seconds at a very challenging pace, alternating for 5 minutes total.

Bent over fly and dumbbell front raise (15 of each)- repeat 3 times

-Cool down (5 minutes), stretch.

This whole work out took about an hour and Whit and I were drenched! I never got bored the whole work out. This was a good work out to confuse the muscles 🙂

 

Lunch was a GIANT salad and Pumpkin Apple Sauce Mess:

  • Romaine/ Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Bell pepper
  • Carrots
  • Red Onion
  • Lentils
  • Quinoa
  • Mushrooms
  • Spike
  • Hummus
  • Italian dressing

Who ever said salads are gross…. obviously does not know how to make one like this! 😉

Unsweetened apple sauce, pumpkin, raisins, kashi, graham cracker, AB, and heated up! This one smelled like pumpkin pie…. so good.

Well lovely’s,

I’m off to relax and maybe watch some Dawson’s Creek. I am obsessed! Do you have any shows you watch on DVD? Tell me about it!
