4 day weekend. 4 day weekend. 4 day weekend. That’s what I keep telling myself. Just need to make it through 2 more days this week and then things will improve right.
I’ve got to get back into clean or at least cleaner eating then I have been. Which means I need to get myself together and start meal planning. Which of course I have not done for this upcoming week.
I did however, start the week off with an OrangeTheory workout which was a completely new workout for me today. It was an ESP day meaning you get all three in one. Endurance, Strength, and Power. I’ve been hitting Endurance and Power days but because I couldn’t go yesterday Friday I finally hit a strength day and today was my first ESP day. It was a challenge that’s for sure.
I have to say I really like the O’Doughs bagel thins and this sub thin. I also have their bread and flatbread sitting in my freezer which I have yet to try but I have high hopes for them both.
Dinner was a trip to the freezer for some Pumpkin Turkey Chili that I had made this winter. It’s from the Fed & Fit Project which I absolutely love every recipe I’ve made from the book. I’ll definitely be pulling out some more recipes from the book to meal plan and get myself back on the clean eating train.
Happy Sunday and hope it was an amazing weekend for you.
It was hot, sunny, and humid today. But that didn’t stop us. A great bunch of volunteers and sponsor volunteers came out to build hope for a family dealing with pediatric cancer.
We battled the heat, tackled the lawn, and were able to put up a swing set in this family’s backyard so that they can enjoy being a family and play in a safe environment.
The workout was good I’m exhausted but there was no rest for me today. As I’ve been going non-stop since the alarm went off at 4. Here’s the results of this morning’s workout.
Starbucks Berry Prickly Pear for the win. I mean it looks pretty and did someone say Prickly Pear, uhmmm yeah that’s a fave of mine so I couldn’t say no.
Happy Fri-Yay all and hello weekend.
I started today off with a OrangeTheory session. It was a tough one but I did it. I can’t really lift my arms right now so it must of been good right.
I broke out my GymWraps that I received back in January from 310nutrition and GymWraps for being a top influencer. I hadn’t tried them until today. After my last workout where sweat was dripping in my face I decided to give them a try. What’s the worst that was going to happen, I hated it and would take it off. Well I’ll tell you this it not only stayed on my head and in place but kept my face dripping sweat free. The fact that it stayed in place was a win right there as most head bands/sweat bands never stay in place for me they are always pushing back or falling down. This stayed right in place I never had to adjust it through the entire workout it didn’t budge. Add in the fact that it was absorbing the sweat that was dripping off my head and kept it from running into my face and well I’m glad I have several of them as I’ll be wearing them every workout now.
I’ve followed up the workout with a quick trip to the chiropractor and then home for lunch where I made a 310 blackberry lemonade and added some fresh blackberries to it. It was amazing! I’ll be making more of this now that summer is here.
And, the true sign that I really like OrangeTheory I’m going to go tomorrow, which means 2 days in a row and oh yeah I’m going at 5am so that I can get the workout in. I usually go every other day however Saturday I can’t go so Friday it is and then I’ll hit it back up again on Sunday.
Time to get fit and no excuses!
It was really good and it was quick which sometimes you just need that to happen in life.
So yeah, I sometimes eat like a child and sometimes eat like an adult. I’m thinking tomorrow may be another adult style eating night. We shall see after my day what I feel like cooking.
Happy Hump Day and Summer Solstice.
