A Happy Hump Day!
She Rocks Fitness woke up this morning after a deep sleep last night, that was filled with crazy dreams, but was happy to see the clear skies, the sun rising, and that there was no humidity in the air. After two cups of coffee and checking e-mails, I was very excited to put together my breakfast. Not only have I been experimenting with workouts, but I have also made a pledge to experiment with new recipes, with the coming of fall. After a couple of tries this week with pumpkin and oatmeal, I have found the PERFECT combination. I do have to give credit to Bran Appetit for this recipe, because it is awesome, filling, and healthy.
- 1/2 c oatmeal
- 1 c water
- 1/2 c pumpkin
- 1/2 banana
- 1/4 c Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Trax Mix
- Dash of cinnamon
- Heat up oatmeal with water for one minute.
- Add pumpkin and cook for another minute.
- Top with banana and trail mix. Let it sit for a minute to get nice and gooey.
After trying to eat this slowly, to enjoy every single bite, I headed to the gym (it doesn’t take me long to digest and then go workout or go for a long run), for a pretty long workout. The workout entailed 40 minutes of interval training on the Stair Master and then a 45 minute super set workout that trained back and triceps. This workout was not pre-planned and was thrown together while training. Each super set combined a back move, immediately followed by a triceps move. 3 sets of 15 repetitions were performed, with a minute rest between each. Needless to say, by the time She Rocks Fitness returned home, it was time for lunch.
- 1 c baby carrots
- 1 tbsp humms
- 2 slices roasted turkey
- 1x 100 calorie whole-wheat tortilla
- Leftover salad from last night (curly endive, cherry tomatoes, yellow pepper, cranberries, oil & vinegar)
Dinner tonight is going to be a Mexican salad served with steak, fresh vegetables, home-made pita chips, and a new dressing that I found in Oxygen Magazine this month. And also something sweet, depending on if I can find a healthy peach cobbler recipe before this day comes to a close. 🙂
