Morning friends! Happy Friday the 13th!! Anyone superstitious about this day?
Luckily, nothing bad has happened yet. Here’s hoping it keeps up.
Thank you all so much for the comments on yesterdays post. You all are the sweetest and so supportive!
It’s been a while since I’ve incorporated my favourite protein powder into breakfast.
1/2 cup oats, 1/2 serving sun warrior, 1 tablespoon coconut flour, 2 teaspoons almond butter, cinnamon, stevia, 1 frozen banana (melted), 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, ~1/4 cup almond milk. Topped off with a dollop of greek yogurt and a tad more almond butter. Delicious.
It was my first time trying out a breakfast cookie, and it is definitely really tasty, but it didn’t keep me full for very long. For some reason oats don’t seem to do the trick for me, oat bran seems to work though. Odd.
Monday – Electra’s Firework Workout + Jen’s 10-1 rep workout
I ended up switching both of these workouts up a bit.
For the Firework Workout, I changed the ab star bursts into tuck jumps, star-crossed abs into jumping lunges, and the full body fireworks into dive bomber push-ups.
In the 10-1 Workout, instead of squats I completed squat jumps and did barrier jumps instead of sit-ups.
Finished up with 5 minute plank.
This whole routine was killer.
Tuesday – spin class
Thursday – spin class
Friday – ZWOW #4
These style of workouts are always a favourite of mine, I think every week I do at least one of Zuzana’s workouts. They are high intensity, and just what I love to be doing in a workout routine.
Saturday – Pilates
I ended up doing a pilates class last weekend, and absolutely loved it. I actually started out taking pilates classes about 3 times a week when I was first losing weight and really enjoyed them. Once it started to get too expensive, I stopped doing the classes.
Now, I am going to be doing pilates classes as often as I can. For sure once a week, but will most likely be doing videos from home because of the cost. Yes, I’m cheap. I’d rather save up for attending a crossfit class at some point.
I love blogilates site, she posts awesome workout videos. And is my go to gal for pilates routines.
Sunday – rest day
Looking at this week of workouts, I believe I may need to do some adjusting. I mentioned yesterday about the problems I have been facing with getting stuck in my comfort zone, I think I need to re-evaluate my current exercise routine.
I do a lot of high intensity workouts and even though they aren’t long maybe I should be putting my focus on something other then working out. I know it is very beneficial to workout obviously, but I do not want one obsession with clean eating to turn into another with over exercising.
This will be tough for me, and I don’t believe I will cut out all exercising. Implementing more pilates, yoga, TRX training, and strength training may be more beneficial for me at this moment.
It’s not the end of the world if I give these type of workouts for a month, two, or however long I need. I will try and go into more detail about these thoughts in a post next week!:)
