I decided I am going to try to do a FLASHBACK FRIDAY every week.
I will post it on either Friday or Saturday and it will consist of some highlighted workouts and food from the week.
A lot of people do “Fitness Friday or Fun Fact Friday” so I am going to do “Flashback Friday” and you guys can let me know what you think!? …..and BE HONEST!
I obviously love posting pictures and in depth details about my workouts because I want you guys to try them! I always want to get a good workout in and sometimes I even post how many calories I burn etc… Even when I only get 30-40 minutes of weight lifting in I still like to let you guys know about it! Many tabata’s can be done at home with minimal equipment too! I know it is hard sometimes to get out of the house when its freeeeeezing out!
Food is another topic I discuss frequently 🙂 It’s my favorite part about blogging. I love finding new meals and making my own twists on recipes.
So here goes nothing…
Fruit with lite cool whip topping
Veggie salad with grilled Chicken
Protein Oatmeal loaf with Melty Almond Butter
Empty Almond Butter Jar
Lots of Protein
Scrambled eggs with warm cinnamon apples and blueberries
Chicken with tomatoes and avocado
I’m pretty sure this is how it went 🙂 A little bit of Cardio combined with these routines too.
Saturday: Back and Abs
Sunday: Chest and Legs
Monday: Pushup Challenge Day #1/ Biceps and Triceps
Thursday: Push Up Challenge #2/ Chest, Shoulders, Abs
**I need to work my Shoulders more because I feel like that and my Chest are my weakest body parts!
1. As many real push-ups as possible!
2. 1 minute rest
3. 90 second plank
4. 1 minute rest
5. 30 knee push-ups
6. 1 minute rest
7. 90 second plank
8. 1 minute rest
9. 30 knee push-ups
I hope everyone likes my Friday Flashbacks!
Have a good weekend everyone!
“The Big Green”
Saturday afternoon I made a Big Green Protein Smoothie for a snack and it was delicious!
1 big bunch (handful) of fresh spinach
1 scoop vanilla protein powder- I used fitmixer “Sculpt” but any would work!
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
4-5 ice cubes
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tsp honey
Mix all ingredients in blender until smooth!
Now you have your big green full of protein!
Before crossfit I had 1/2 banana with 1 tbsp of almond butter
Ok, who am I kidding, I went back for a second scoop.
Look who was a little creeper in the background this morning…She always wants what I have!
Saturday are group workouts and they are so intense!!
The workout was groups of 3: (you could split it up however you wanted)
15 minute clock: 7:30 AMRAP
20 front squats
30 barbel rollout
40 box jumps
1200 meter run
10 min. clock- 5 min AMRAP
10 front squats
15 barbel rollout
20 box jumps
800 meter run
5 min clock- 2:30 AMRAP
5 front squats
7 barbel rollout
10 box jumps
400 meter run
WHAT A WORKOUT!
After crossfit I had my fitmixer protein shake. Straight vanilla which was pretty tasty. The only thing I don’t like about the fitmixer “sculpt” protein is that is has 6 grams of sugar whereas the Beverly International UMP only has 1 gram.
A little later I drank my fitmixer aminos– grape this time and it was tasty!
Saturday was cleaning day for us which was not fun!
I had to get my house in order for the Wildtree party that I am having Sunday! It should be a lot of fun!
I finally got my Christmas tree down, thank God! Talk about late!
After cleaning for a couple of hours I was starving! I made a Spinach salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, and a hard-boiled egg. Talapia for some added protein and fruit on the side 🙂
The Skinny on Hard Boiled Eggs
I wrote previously about how my hard-boiled eggs were so hard to peel and half of the egg came off every time, even though the yolks looked perfect!
My eggs were actually easy to peel this time! I read that eggs are easier to peel when they are “older” eggs, so they have been in your refrigerator about a week or so.
I got my eggs the same day that I boiled them this time, so I think it is just a hit or miss! Who knows!?!
I was planning on making mini turkey meatloaf muffins but I made tacos with my ground turkey instead!
I made mine on a low carb wrap, so mine was more like a mini taco burrito.
Grocery Cart Dilemma
Ok, I don’t know if this has happened to any of you out there, but EVERY time I go to the grocery store, I MEAN EVERY TIME…..I get a fu***d up cart!!
This is a normal grocery cart, one of which I never get!
Usually it has a bad wheel…
If I turn left, my cart goes right, If I turn right, my cart goes left…. I mean I was really struggling today, and my abs already hurt from crossfit…I was using a lot of my body to get this cart around the dang store.
I usually don’t realize the bad cart situation until I have a cart that is pretty much full! This should count as a second workout right?
This is what I hope for next time!…
Does anyone else know feel my pain here?
Whats your favorite Green smoothie ingredient??
Have you experienced the grocery cart dilemma?
