Like Riding a Bike

Let’s see if I remember how I used to blog…..

Yesterday started off with an oats and egg white pancake with a side of egg whites.

That is an old picture, so there might be a whole egg in the picture, but I just did egg whites yesterday.

Once that settled, I headed downstairs for some HIIT on the spin bike.

  • 5 min warm up
  • 10 minutes of seated; slight resistance; sprints 1 min sprints, 30 sec rest
  • 10 minutes of out of the seat; hard resistance; butt hovering over seat for 1 min (really push your butt back so your forearms are resting on the handles); standing for a rest for 30 sec
  • 5 min cool down

This song came on during and is my new favorite!  It will make you MOVE!  Unless you don’t like explicit lyrics and well, then, we can never share playlists.

After getting everyone up and around the for the day, I got myself ready to head down to train with Tionna.  She has made it clear that I need to have eaten TWO meals before I see her so I have the gas to get through our workouts.  Mornings are busy at the Beach House and sometimes forget about that second meal.

Crap.

So, I start shoveling cold ground turkey in my mouth and a rice cake.  Sorry, there is no picture of that pretty site.

She took my measurements and I lost another 1.2%.  We are going to take them again next week since it’s that time of the month so I’m retaining water.  I was still happy! 

Following our workout, she gave me a massage and then we wrapped up the day at yoga!

Training + Massage + Yoga = Perfect Day!

Can we do that everyday, please?

I lost a meal some where in the middle of the day, but my other two meals were my favorite salad!

Meal #3: Shredded raw brussel sprouts (I shred them with the shredding attachment on my food processor), broccoli slaw (prepackaged from store), kale, ground turkey, 1 tablespoon Newman’s Own Oil and Vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon MCT oil.

Meal #4: Ran out of shredded brussel sprouts! THE HORROR! So this one was spinach, kale, broccoli slaw, ground turkey, Newman’s Own Oil and Vinegar, MCT Oil

We didn’t get to my triceps earlier in the day due to time (taking measurements and massage), so I ran downstairs and knocked that out after my food settled.

That’s my mean, aggressive face. Scared?

As soon as my head hit the pillow, I was out.  It was another fun day filled with a great friend and trainer, fitness and food.

I have never felt better in my life.  (except, maybe, the last time I said that which I’m pretty sure was during comp prep!)

I am Healthy. I am Happy. I am Whole.

See you tomorrow, Friends!

P.S. Miss Michelle asked if I would consider doing a vlog…….eeeeek. I’ll see what I can do about that.
