I'm offically in love with the Thrive Diet recipes. Everything I've tried from there has been slap-me-in-the-face fantastic! Last night's dinner was no exception. I tried one of his pizzas and I was absolutely blown away. The crust kicked major booty and it wasn't even bread of any kind. I didn't make any of his recipes specfically, I just kinda used ideas from a couple of em to make my own pizza, which means, I can totally post the recipe over on d.h. in the next few days! Here is a slice of that beauty After eatin, it was time to get ready, head off to class and have some fun! I came home exhausted and ate a quick mango + pumpkin seeds (I had no idea I liked these until just now) with raisins. I had to make my snackies (except lunch, wed. is lunch with the BF day for the week) for tomorrow since Wed. I have an early client and don't have time do so in the morning. Since I was so freakin tired, I completely forgot to take pics, lo siento! Luckily all my eats were on my blog in the last two days anyway! I grabbed a thrive energy bar and made some of the delicious hummus-caserole stuff I made yesterday! After making some food I absolutely crashed and died. Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!
Got up bright and early this morning, grabbed some quick energy bites on my way out the door and biked to the gym. This morning was lower back, abs, calves and some cardio. Ab Superset (jump rope for 60 sec between supersets)- Reverse Crunch on Ball: 3 sets, 10 reps - Knee to Chest on Disk: 3 sets, 12 reps - Weighted Twist: 3 sets -- 6 reps with right leg elevated, 6 reps with left leg elevated, 6 reps regular - Stability Ball Plank: 3 sets, 20 sec center, 20 sec left side, 20 sec right side Lower Back/Calf Superset (jump rope for 30 sec between sets)- Back Extensions: 3 sets -- 6 reps up to center, 6 reps up and to the right, 6 reps up and to the left - Weighted Calf Raises on Disk: 3 sets, 20 reps - Swimming on BOSU: 3 sets, 30 reps - Standing Calf Raise: 3 sets, 10 reps 22 mins of stair climbin!
I had to eat and run to make it to my client on time. I had a tasty smoothie on the drive over. 1 Pear 1/4 Cup Frozen Pineapple Chunks 1 Tbsp Hemp Protein 1 Tbsp Brown Rice Protein 1 Tbsp Ground Flax 1/2 Tbsp Oil Blend (Hemp + Flax) 1 tsp Maca Powder 3/4 Cup Water Few chunks Ice Splash of Vanilla Almond Milk Cinnamon Sprinkle Stevia
Toooooooooooo much stevia made it in there. It is waaaaaaay easier to over-sweeten with stevia! Must be more careful!
