WIAW In the Sun

10 Apr

Hello Everyone, I can’t get enough of this gorgeous weather.  After this I am going to go for a quick run outside then go to the gym for chest/abs..Yesterday was legs and I didn’t finish them because I got so hot there doing them and was getting nausea.  I already get a stomach ache doing legs but sweating like a pig on top of it killed me.  Does anyone else get a stomach ache during legs?!

Onto Wednesday, so glad this week is flying!  Thanks for Jenn for hosting!

Breakfast

I woke up at 5 and could already tell it was going to be one of those mornings that I don’t get satisfied by anything I eat.  So instead of switching it up today like I have been with Meghan’s challenge, I went with my usual 2 eggs, sweet potato and kale sauteed in coconut oil with nutritional yeast.

I also had my DD, butter pecan. ❤

Lunch

I had to pack something easy to eat because I wasn’t stopping home in between my class because I had to go to the library.  I was not bringing tuna in the library. I get looks for my smoothies now being smelly too?! Not happening.

Image

Celery&Carrots with hummus, green smoothie consisiting of strawberries, an orange, coconut milk, banana, protein powder, and spinach, and an apple.  I never ate the apple so once I came back from the gym I did with a scoop of protein powder with some almond milk and peanut butter, so goooood. (yes I used a measuring cup as my bowl)

Dinner

Finally something new for the challenge.  I made a tempeh burger that was so good with some ketchup, corn and broccoli on the side.  Perfect meal for a gorgeous day!

Snack

Popcorn kick is back in full force. Then I had a cup of peanuts.

What makes me happy: enough said. Image

 

Do you sometimes find it hard to switch up your meals?  What is your hardest one to switch?

Workout Challenge

18 Nov

Hey all, hope everyones enjoying their weekend!  With the holidays right here and it getting dark earlier it is easy to get some holiday weight gain and put off workouts.  Saturdays I use to workout after work but now it’s my off day because im at work 7-630 so by the time i get home and eat dinner the last thing i want to do is go workout even though i know it makes me feel better just that day it’s not happening.  But now I am busy every weekend throughout the holidays with parties and stuff just like everyone else and it’s easier to push off more and more workouts.. this holiday season though im gonna have a challenge with myself and anyone who wants to join!  My goal is to do 300 squats daily- which can be done throughout the day.  I used to hate squats until I started doing them correctly

Plus they make your butt look great ;-)! Along with that I am doing this every morning right before breakfast because once i sit to eat i aint getting back up lol

Image

I am sweating by the end of this.  If im doing my long run that day I skip this but I am definitely doing the squats 6 days a week, I myself need one day off from any workout.. I am going to be doing this challenge until christmas though, whose with me?! Lets make this the best holiday so you can look and feel your best!

Aint it the truth! haha

Are you in for the challenge?!

Do you enjoy/not mind squats?
