One Hot Weekend

Posted Aug 04 2009 7:18pm
Hi all! Hope you guys had a great weekend! I know I did! We had a friend in town and were out at the beach for a bit of the weekend where the camera didn't want to go. I don't have pics of everything from the weekend, but I will sure give you the highlights!

I tried this new hummus which was amazing, so there was tons of this:

Of course, there were lots of green smoothies in bowls:

Lots of fruity chia puddings:

Salads abound no matter what day of the week it is:

I also made some hemp-curry salad and threw that on some whole wheat naan. Ahhhhmazing!

Saturday was my rest day, but we went to the zoo which meant walking foreva! I guess we'll call that an active rest day then! On Sunday, I hit the gym for an hour of sweat filled-cardio glory.

This morning I woke up to a quick snack of Energy Bites (from the Thrive Diet recipes) and some mango. I really like the energy bites, they were just perfect before a workout. Not overly filling, but very energy filled!

I biked to the gym for abs/legs today. It turned out to be quite the tough workout today, which I love!
Abs Superset (jump rope for 60 sec between supersets):
- Hanging Leg Lifts: 3 sets, 12 reps
- Knee-to-Elbow on Stability Ball: 3 sets, 10 reps each side
- Inverse Plank on Stability Ball: 3 sets, 30 sec
- Balance in Boat Pose on Disk: 3 sets, 30 sec
- Leg Lifts with Hips on Disk: 3 sets, 7 to the center, 7 to the left, 7 to the right
Step-up with One Leg Deadlift (jump rope for 30 sec between sets): 3 sets, 8 reps each side
Hack Squat (jump rope for 30 sec between sets): 3 sets, 15 reps
Inner/Outter Thigh Superset (jump rope for 30 sec between supersets):
- Hip Adduction: 3 sets, 15 reps
- Hip Abduction: 3 sets, 12 reps

My breakfast upon returning from the gym was a tasty green smoothie concoction.
1 banana
1 large leaf kale
2 large handfuls spinach
1/2 tbsp hemp protein
1/2 tbsp brown rice protein
1/2 tbsp flax/hemp oil mix
1 tsp ground maca
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ice
cinnamon (I love cinnamon, so I use lots)
slight sprinkle stevia

I packed up all my snackies for the day. Ezekiel with a.b. and blackberry fruit spread.

Salad with spinach, romaine, broccoli slaw, corn, chia seeds, hemp seeds and some flax/hemp viniagrette dressing on the side. Energy bar (from the Thrive Diet recipes, we'll see how it tastes!).

Happy Monday!!
