Today was a lovely day, the sun was shining and no rain was in sight! I felt the love and energy all around me.
This morning, I woke up early before a day full of appointments to get in a sweet pilates session. It’s good to feel that burn again, but it made me realize how I have a love for training certain body parts, and despise working other parts of my body.
Like I literally cringe while going through some of the movements, and just beg in my head for the routine to finish.
I love working out my…
triceps, shoulders, abs, chest, glutes
I hate working out my…
quads, back, biceps, calves
Most likely, I hate working out these specific body parts because I find them the hardest and they’re probably the types of moves I should be doing more.
It’s more mental than anything, but to make things more pleasant in the morning I make sure to have everything set up the night before.
This definitely makes things more manageable, that way I just roll out of bed, throw on some clothes, and my equipment is already been set up from the night before.
Plus, I always know that I’ll feel much better if I get my workout done first thing. It gives me positive vibes and keeps my energy up throughout the rest of the day.
Post workout, I enjoyed my new love; the buckwheat bowl.
For some reason, I find the middle of the week the hardest days to wake up early.
Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s feel pretty brutal, but other days are perfectly fine. I’m super duper excited since my new order from iherb came in, I ordered a new protein powder to try out. Well two actually…
After a few weeks without brown rice, I tried reintroducing my old sun warrior protein into my diet, but it was unsuccessful. Hello, stomach issues.
I’m going to try the new protein out tomorrow morning, so I’ll let you know how that experiment goes!
A little later, I took some shots…of almond butter that is.
For some reason, it’s so much more satisfying to freeze the nut butter ahead of time. It’s like fudge. I had an unpictured apple on the side. I’m pretty sure you all know what apples look like.
Now, I’m on the couch enjoying sipping a cup of my new favorite tea.
Yes, after I loved the initial taste, I went and ordered myself a tin of it! Delicious, spicy, and slightly sweet. Plus, I’m a cinnamon addict, so it was a guaranteed win.
Between this tea, my David’s supply, and now the Teavana I have, I’m slowly turning into a tea lover.
Just earlier this year I was saying how I hated tea because it tasted like dirty water. Well no longer do I feel that way.
Time to catch up on Pretty Little Liars. This is winning over the Bachelor.
