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!).
