After Christmas shopping last night I came home to make dinner. That’s obviously not me but I think I looked that happy when I was shopping!
I got a few things for Alec and Eric. My mom got some good stuff too! I’m still far from done!
Have you made a Christmas list?
Mine includes the following:
- Dicks or Lululemon gift card- or any kind of workout clothes- I have to be in style for my Pure Barre classes!
- Kindle- So I can blog on the go!
- A new camera- So I can take better photos 🙂
- Eric wants the Nike Free Run 5.0
- A new winter coat
- Pony Skull Cap- Great for running outdoors! I like Nike the best.
I was supposed to make pot roast for dinner but the boys wanted spaghetti. I wasn’t in the mood for spaghetti but after I smelled it I was! Well I just had chicken with pasta sauce and some veggies on the side instead.
I know it doesn’t look that pretty and it’s boring- but it tasted good.
After dinner I had to small pieces of dark chocolate. That’s what happens when I keep candy in the house!
They say there are health benefits to dark chocolate so that’s why I eat it. Or because I just like it too 🙂
After dinner I headed to our last volleyball game of the winter season. So sad. We won our first game but lost our second.
Here’s the team!
We played hard!
After volleyball I was starving so I came home and ate some Special K Protein Plus cereal with Almond Milk.
Have a good weekend!!
What is on your Christmas List this year??
It’s time to workout and Christmas shop today!
Before my workout today I needed a good breakfast! I had a paleo pumpkin walnut muffin from last night mixed with a banana and a big scoop of melty smart balance chunky peanut butter!
It was delicious and I knew it would hold me over until after the gym!
While I worked on my computer, Jackson laid under my feet…
I drank my fruit punch pre workout drink called White Flood, just mixed with 8 oz. of water and headed to meet my sister.
And I was ready to go!!
Chest is the hardest for me because I am so weak in this area! If I continue to work at it I will get stronger though. Starting out with little weight is better than no weight right!?
- Incline bench press- 4 sets of 12
- Flat Bench Press- 3 sets of 10 superset with chest fly machine
- Cable Flys
- Incline chest press with dumbbells – superset with dumbbell flys
- Incline abs with 25 lb plate- 3 sets of 15
Cardio for 20-25 Minutes. I did the elliptical. 10 minutes at incline of 7-8 to work the gluteus, hamstrings, and quadriceps. 10 minutes at level 3-5 to add in the lower calf muscles.
I burned 595 calories- 35% fat burn. On the way home I drank my protein shake.
When I got home I made a quick lunch.
And Lily watched me- she photographs so well!
I made an egg white and cheese sandwich on a microwaveable English muffin made with almond flour! It was so buttery and sweet tasting. I used thin Swiss cheese which has 9 grams of protein and only 40 calories!
The English muffin has about 280 calories and 6g of carbs!
After lunch I went Christmas shopping with my mom. While we were out I got thirsty so I bought a mango smoothie with added protein powder! Mango is one of my favorite fruits.
When I got home I ate another paleo pumpkin muffin. I just can’t get enough of these!
Off to make dinner then headed to volleyball tonight. It’s tournament night so I hope we play good!
Question of the evening:
Do you use pre workout/post workout supplements or shakes?
