Last night having this as the last thing I saw before I went to bed wasn't exactly my favorite.
In all honesty today was a GREAT first day back into my routine. There is just something great about having control over my workout time and my eating and all of that jazz that makes me feel reaaal good.
My workout today was a killer. I was sick for the majority of the break, and my energy levels were super low. That always makes getting back in to the swing of things a little harder.
Cardio: 5.6 mile run
Set: #1 (alt between the two exercises three times)
15 assisted pull ups
12 squat presses with a 35 lb plate
Set: #2 (alt between the two exercises three times)
12 Squat curls with a 40 lb bar
1 minute plank with a 25 lb plate on my back
Set: #3 (alt between the two exercises three times)
15 push ups with the TRX
15 triceps presses with the TRX
It was a pretty simple workout, and I swear on a normal day it wouldn't have been so bad, but MAN I was TIRED after I was done.
My food was on track today as well, and it felt great.
5:30 AM Breakfast: 1/2 cup of slow cook oats with 1TBS of natural peanut butter.
11:30 AM Lunch: Salad from Brick Oven. At this point in my day I had two ingredients in my cupboard, both of which were eaten for breakfast. I was done with work and my work out for the day and I was STARVING. I hadn't had time to go to the store yet, and so it was a to-go salad bar kind of lunch day.
My salad consisted of...spinach and romaine lettuce, cucumbers, beets, kidney beans, sprouts, peas, diced egg whites, pineapple, mandarin oranges, cottage cheese, and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds and peanuts. With a side of ranch for some fork dipping. It was delicious.
4:00 PM Snack: a handful of raw almonds, a clemantine, and some sugar free hot chocolate
7:45 PM Dinner: A bagel thin with shaved cracked pepper turkey and honey dijon mustard. A handful of baby carrots and a cup of Amy's organic chunky tomato bisque soup.
It was great to be back with my clients today and to hear them talk about goals and momentum going into the New Year. It seems like everyone is glad to have all of the Christmas junk out of the house, and to have a good start going forward. I hope you feel the same way.
Are you feeling positive momentum going into the new year as well? Have you gotten rid of your holiday junk yet, or is it still looming around your house? I vote you throw it out! Fill your pantry and fridge with good, healthy foods. Make some goals to eat better and you will fell better in return!
