Wow, this week has FLOWN by. I have been so busy and gotten SO much done, and also gotten some KICK ASS work outs.
Monday-Thursday were intense as far as workouts. As long as I make sure that I take a step back and let my body rest, it is okay. I know my body can handle it and if I feel overwhelmed, I just pull back the reigns.
Week of Workouts
Monday:2 miles jog, Ham/Glute Workout, 30 min. on the stairmill, 1 hour spin
Tuesday: 1 hour boxing, Shoulders/triceps, 30 min. Sprint workout
Wednesday: 2 mile jog, Legs/Plyos, 30 min. one on one boxing(although timewise this was the shortest, it was BY FAR the hardest day. I was balls to the walls for the entire 1.5 hours of workouts i got in.)
Thursday: 1 hour boxing, back/biceps(meh, if i can even count that as biceps), 30 minutes elliptical(much more normal day)
Friday: 1 hour yoga, 20 minutes on the arc trainer
So the week did dwindle down, but I still got in some awesome workouts. I feel great!
Yesterday, after yoga(still loving this class!) and cardi-yoing, I was off to work the Egg Whites International booth at the P.F Changs Marathon Phoenix health expo. It was a longggggg day. I know more about egg whites than I ever thought I could, and know that I can successfully stand on my feet for 10 hours straight without keeling over(almost). Don’t get me wrong, I am having fun at this show! It is GREAT networking and the owners of EWI are all really cool guys. I will be there all day today too, and the day should go by even faster, since they are expecting ehhh 95,000 people to come through today. I have a feeling I won’t have a voice, but I can’t wait to tell you all the great benefits of egg whites that I never even knew about 🙂
I am totally bummed though, that I have to miss boot camp this morning. As brutal as it is, I look forward to it every week. I love getting my ass kicked and pushing my body to the limits. It is totally exhilarating and although it’s tough at the time, each time you push yourself to that make/break point and you make it, a small wall in your head is broken down and a sense of accomplishment and empowerment runs through your blood.
Anyyyways. Eating has been great! While at the expo, I only got to eat 2 of the 5 meals I brought, so needless to say I was STARVING and scarfed down two of my meals on my way home, and then had another one when I got home. Not exactly great nutrient timing, but I needed the food and didn’t have a choice. My head was a cloud when I got home. I only had some veggies in my system, and no other carbs and I literally felt like my brain was in the clouds. Like that week before a show feeling. Sleep seemed to help me though and I made sure to have some oats with breakfast.
M1: 1/4 cup wheat bran, 1/4 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1/2 scoop protein powder, 1/2 TBSP almond butter, 1 small orange
M2: 1 scoop protein, 1/2 TBSP Peanut butter, 1/4 cup egg whites, ice, Blended babyyyyy YUM!
M3: 4 oz grilled chicken, 2 cups broccolie/cauliflower, and hot saunce
M4: Protein pancake
M5: 4 oz. ground turkey, 1/4 avocado, hot sauce
M6: Protein pancake
M7: 4 oz. ground turkey, 1/4 avocado, hot sauce.
I also have a tub-o-green beans that I will hopefully get to munch on throughout the day.
Let’s see if I can even get to half of these meals today while working.(doubtful, but we’ll see.)
That looks pretty good to me, seeing as I won’t be working out at all today. Tomorrow will be a good boot camp/bleacher workout though, so I’m excited!!
See you manana!
