This is going to be short and sweet today. My new goal: Get Jacked! 🙂
This morning started with a great workout at the gym.
Try to increase your weight each time if possible. If you are struggling to do 8 reps, you should probably go down in weight but if you can do 12 eat set easily, then you should probably bump it up 🙂
After my workout I came home and refueled with protein Oats! I made overnight oats and was so pumped to eat them but I added to much cinnamon (on accident) and It was just not that great tasting 😦
So I made some regular protein oats, even though I was burning up. They tasted great though!
- 1 packet plain oatmeal
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 egg white
- stevia to taste
Topped with unsweetened coconut and almond butter! Perfect combo of carbs and protein!
While I ate my breakfast I sipped on my new muscle recovery and had my new supplements, Density. This is only day 2 but we’ll see how it goes.
I’ll be back later!
Do you take supplements? What are your favorites?
Happy Hump Day Wednesday: It’s Almost the Weekend again!
Wednesday morning I had to go back to work, boo. I loved the break! I was the laziest I have ever been yesterday and it was great. I was going to take down my Christmas decorations, but that didn’t happen. Maybe my next off day it will.
For breakfast I made a microwaveable English muffin. I topped it with laughing cow cinnamon cream cheese spread and eggs (1 egg, 2 egg whites). Nothing to crazy or out of the box for me!
I also had 1/2 of a grapefruit- metabolism booster!
For my mid morning snack around 10:15 I had my Beverly International cookies n cream protein shake and an apple.
Lunch was leftover Laura’s lean chili and a salad with tomato, cucumbers, avocado, feta cheese, and orange pepper.
Another snack later on was a handful of mixed nuts- mostly almonds, and some pita chips.
I went to crossfit after work: This was my 4th beginner class, and I still get nervous every time!
Clean and Jerk
8 Minute AMRAP:
3 Clean and Jerks
9 Box Jumps
Let me just say I pretty much suck at pushups 😦
After my workout I wasn’t that hungry but I had shredded BBQ in the crock pot at home (made with Stubbs, no high fructose corn syrup, bbq sauce). I had a little bit with some orange pepper and cucumber slices with spinach and artichoke humus. It doesnt really look that pretty but that BBQ was very good!
Then another protein shake before bed. I swear this stuff is so good!
I was thinking about going to Beefcake and getting some supplements soon… I got their new magazine and all the women in it take supplements like its their life, for example: DENSITY to help lose fat and increase muscle mass, ULTRA 40 for preservation of lean muscle mass, and MUSCLE SYNERGY to help with post workout soreness and help build lean muscle mass.
A little blurry sorry.
My husband went the other day and stocked up and for the new year I was wondering if I should.
The only extra supplements I take right now are multivitamins, vitamin C, Fish Oil, sometimes CLA, and biotin for hair and nails.
I definitely do not want to look like this girl: Her shoulders look very manly 😦
Any thoughts on taking extra supplements?
What kind of supplements do you take?
