Week One Update….

We have made it through week one of our 2019 fitness challenge, and I have to say…I am hella sore! It has been a hot minute since I have trained on the regular, and so my body is getting used to the intensity and load once again.

I have been taking my trusty BCAA’s which help with muscle recovery, and have added a new protein powder post workout, which I LOVE! This Isopure Infusions, mixes so well with water, and it doesn’t weigh me down or upset my stomach like most protein powders do. This is a perfect post workout drink, especially in the warmer summer months. It is very easy to drink!

This is my new favorite protein. It only has a couple of ingredients! So easy to drink! It comes in several flavors.

I will admit, that this first week of training was a bit wonky for us, due to the fact our schedule has been all over the place. My husband has time off from work, so it hasn’t been our usual routine around here. This past week we biked, and walked a few days, in addition to our gym routine, but this week we begin adding our running days into our routine. I can’t wait to do this! I have actually been craving the feeling of running in the woods. We have had several rainy days lately, so the outdoor stuff has been limited.

Took the dog for a long walk the few days we could. We have had a lot of rain.

FDOE (full day of eating)….

Today I thought I would share with all of you what a full day of eating looks like for me. When I shot these photos it was actually my first active rest day. Here is what that included….

First to start the day…celery/lemon juice. Usually I add parsley, but I was out.

After I wait a bit after drinking my juice, I will drink coffee on the weekend. I am trying to cut down on this during the week, and just drink tea. This is what I did for years, until recently.

For breakfast I decided to make my bodybuilder crepes. They are so easy to make! Just blend egg whites and a table spoon or two of your favorite pancake mix, and cook! The key is to use a blender to mix it up, so you get a perfectly smooth batter.

I topped mine with blueberries that were warmed up in the microwave, then I mix and mash them a little with stevia. I cooked a veggie sausage to have with it.

Blueberry yumminess!

One of my favorite things to have is sparkling water or seltzer. I like to find them in all sorts of flavors. I will have a big tall glass at lunch time. Sometimes I add stevia flavor drops in.

For lunch we had “healthy spaghetti-o’s” made from scratch. This is imported pasta from Italy, which Ciarra can actually eat! If the flour is from there or france, she can eat it. If it is American flour, she gets sick! WTH USA!? quit poisoning our food!

The yummy result. Those are turkey breast meatballs on the top there, which I baked in the oven. I always eat a ton of veggies with my food.

For dinner everyone was busy, and pretty much full still from lunch. We all did our own thing for dinner. I had tuscan bread with hummus, tuna, and cucumber, with a side of roasted pepper and tomato soup on the side. It was good.

My favorite nighttime snack as of late has been half a lavash, with half a banana, and a tablespoon of this peanut butter. So yummy! Lately I have only been having one snack a day, and it is at night after dinner.

 

Moving on….

On to week two of the fitness challenge we go! I am looking forward to seeing how this coming week works out, as we are back to our normal schedule here. I have several things I am working on as far as garments go. I am hoping to get at least one of them finished and photographed this week.

Until Next Post, Have an amazing week!
