Hey guys, sorry I've been so totally mia the last few days! I'm back in action though!

My weekend was so busy I hardly got to sleep, much less blog!!

This morning I grabbed strawberry energy bites and made it to the gym for a lower back, calves and ab day!

Ab Superset (jump rope for 60 sec between each superset):
- Reverse Crunch: 3 sets, 15 reps
- Seated Twist: 3 sets, 12 reps
- Inverse Plank on Ball: 3 sets, 45 sec
- Ball Pike with Leg Lift: 3 sets, 5 reps on each side
Lower Back and Calf Superset 1 (jump rope for 30 sec between each superset):
- Seated Calf Raise: 3 sets, 12 reps
- Deadlift: 3 sets, 10 reps
Lower Back and Calf Superset 2 (jump rope for 30 sec between each superset):
- Standing Calf Raise: 3 sets, 10 reps
- Back extensions: 3 sets, 6 reps center, 6 reps left, 6 reps right
Lower Back and Calf Superset 3 (jump rope for 30 sec between each superset):
- Calf Raises on Disk: 3 sets, 20 reps
- Back extensions on ball: 3 sets, 8 reps lifting legs, 8 reps lifting upper body
Ab Killer Set (jump rope for 60 sec between sets):
- Stability Ball Sit-up and Hold: 2 sets, 90 sec hold

After all that and a bike ride home, my tummy was screamin for some breakfast. I happily obliged with a tasty recovery shake!
2 cups spinach
1 large leaf kale
1 cup water
1 tbsp hemp protein
1 tbsp brown rice protein
1 tbsp oil blend (flax + hemp)
1 tsp maca powder
1/4 cup frozen mango
1/4 cup frozen papaya
1/2 banana

I blended that baby and guzzled it! Magnificent!

I packed my snackage for today last night: pear ginger energy bar (thrive recipe); Huuuge salad with chia seeds, hemp seeds, spinach, romaine, avocado, corn, broccoli slaw with sesame dressing on the side; carrots + homemade tzatzaki for dippage!

I enjoyed some much needed yoga this morning after such a busy weekend! It really hit the spot!! Here is hoping that everyone else's weekend was a little less crazy than mine!
