Along with some Red Rose orange pekoe tea to warm me up on a rather brisk morning.
I made some delicious fresh rolls with crab and sweet thai chili sauce for dipping.
My workout of the day was another one by GPP Fitness. I completed their Pushed workout at the gym followed by a 30 minute interval workout on the elliptical.
I left the gym on such a high! I felt amazing afterwards!
Casey cooked up some incredible steaks on the barbeque. They were absolutely delicious! I ate one of the smaller ones along with some steamed green beans.
For dessert, Casey and I made up a tiny batch of vanilla cupcakes to enjoy as a little treat to ourselves. I made them the way I like them, with the icing on the side!
I woke up bright and early this morning for the morning program. I wasn't feeling super hungry after having a pretty large snack before I went to bed super late the night before. I grabbed a banana and a couple Mini Wheats to get me through the morning.
I was also feeling exhausted after only having gotten roughly four hours of sleep the night before. I stopped by McDonald's on the way to work to pick up a medium sugar free vanilla iced coffee to get me energized.
I was feeling energized after my coffee, morning program, then spending the morning playing with the new horse in the barn. I got home around 11am and was ready for lunch. I made myself a steak fajita using a small whole wheat tortilla, chipotle barbeque sauce, lettuce, orange bell pepper slices and leftover steak from last night. I also had some extra steak on the side because it was so delicious!
I did a bit of snacking throughout the afternoon, but by the time dinner rolled around I was ready for a solid meal! I cooked up some chicken wings and tossed them in a honey garlic sauce. I also had some steamed green beans with a hint of sea salt on the side. Everything was delicious! I loved everything about this meal and could eat it for days if I had to!
Casey and I headed off to the gym a little while after dinner where I completed another GPP Fitness workout.
I wasn't feeling super great after my first set, likely because I had eaten a big dinner only an hour earlier. After the second set, I decided to pass on finishing the burpees out of fear I would throw up on the ground. I finished the thrusters and kettlebell swings, then hopped on the elliptical to get in my cardio component while remaining vertical. I did a 30-minute interval workout on the elliptical before calling it a night.
And I guess it's about time I call it a night! I'm pretty tired and I have to be up early tomorrow. I also have a busy day ahead of me!
