hey everyone! so let me first start with last night’s workout…I did my 40 min. workout that I had planned. Legs were a tad sore, so my incline was sometimes less than I had posted and the last sprints I lowered to 7.0, instead of 7.5 speed. My grand total looked like this…
After my time on the treadmill it was time to tackle the squats I had been putting off since Monday!!! I happened to run into my sister while I was there and she said she would do the squats with me because I was feeling kinda embarassed to be doing them on the mats alone (I hate people staring at me and so I think this is the main reason I put off squats for so long!). Anyways, with my handy dandy squat partner in toe I ended up doing all of my planned squats (ended up being like 120 squats in all!!!) and they freaking killed!!! Like I could barely walk after! That shiz was intense!! haha I am seriously blown away and my legs today feel crazy sore! But I will take that as a good thing and hopefully with time squats won’t be as killer!!
Last night for dinner I made some fresh green beans, topped them with marinara sauce, and also boiled some goat cheese & sundried tomato ravioli..but being that I have a love/hate relationship with goat cheese..the ravioli last night ended up being a bust and I instead ate the green beans and like 5 raviolis..it was ok and I guess part of life is trying new things, at least now I know not to buy that type of ravioli again? haha bright side maybe?
Next up is my eats so far this morning..let me start with this gem
I usually take my little brother to school, but today my mom did and so I was able to make a stop at the drive-thru Starbucks, which was awesome! I didn’t even have to step out of the car to enjoy a wonderfully warm latte! #spoiledmuch?
Now on to breakfast…as you all know by now I am addicted to overnight oats and was trying to branch out this week with new breakfast options. I had done well so far, and had even made a yogurt parfait last night to have as breakfast today, but then I went back and made it into overnight oats like 20 minutes later!! The addition of rolled oats, chia seeds, and sunbutter into my yogurt definitely made for one happy camper this morning!!
Seriously..I think I have a problem! I just can’t seem to get enough of this beauty of a breakfast!!!
Snack was an apple and some blueberry green tea…
side note..this apple was ginormous!! Like bigger than a softball!! My little brother knows my love of apples and last night he came home from the store with my mom and was bursting with excitement to show me these HUGE apples he got for us!! haha it is moments like that that seriously make me love that kid!
And last but not least..even though my legs were a burnin’ I was able to do some elliptical and arm work this morning which ended up looking something like this…
Okie dokes, well I am off to lunch now! I will post my Thursday “Things to Make Ya’ll Smile” post later!! Enjoy your afternoons everybody 🙂
