Hello lovely people!
Happy Friday the 13th!! Have any bad luck yet today? I sure hope not.
So far today, I’m looking good.
Despite my best efforts to get to bed early last night, I still woke up at 4 AM. Why? I could not tell you, my body has just not been tired lately. Probably due to all the thoughts that have been running through my mind lately.
Last night before bed I prepped myself oat bran, so that I could have it after my workout this morning.
Just oat bran, with egg whites, chia seeds, and pumpkin. In the morning I topped this with some peanut flour paste and mucho amounts of cinnamon.
Later on, I gave myself a coffee break for some much need caffeine.
No room Americano, please.
Our power went out yesterday and I realized how much I rely on everything that needs electricity/hydro to entertain myself. I couldn’t use the internet, or the lights (not to say that lights entertain me…), or the TV, or the stove. I felt like a cave woman…except for the fact that I was in a house. At least there were books to be read!
I did this quick circuit workout this morning to get some movement in to start off the day. I then followed this with some weights.
Here’s an example of squat jacks if you need it:
Squat Jacks (except moves arms in jumping jack motion)
I still have been making sure to only do 1 HIIT workout a day, instead of doing the 3-4 I was doing before. And I seriously have been obsessed with Zuzana’s Workouts of the Week. I definitely feel a lot less fatigued now that I’m not doing as much intensity. Her workouts are hard and get my heart rate up nice and high in a short amount of time, which is super so I’m not spending a long time at the gym. You do not need to be at the gym forever to look fit.
For dinner yesterday, I whipped up a something pretty simple. It looks quite colourless in this photo, but it was tasty.
I baked some cauliflower, broccoli slaw, and my new obsession, tempeh in nutritional yeast and coconut oil and topped it with some marinara post picture. It was divine.
Now I’m off to catch up on Modern Family before I run some errands for the day.
Have a great Friday!
