Workouts:
Sunrise Routine
TurboFire Low HIIT 20
Bikini Abs
BikiniBooty
Sunset Workout x 2

Meals:
M1: egg whites/ berries/ bananas
M2: 2 kiwis
M3: PerfectFit Shake w/ spinach, banana, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, zico
M4: homemade guacamole with Terra chips
M5: Tilapia and green beans

My ankle was looking a lot better but I still wanted to hold off taking it for a run. I wanted to do something though so after doing the Sunrise routine I decided to give the low impact TurboFire workout a try. Legs burned and I got a good sweat without having to jump.

More cleaning and uploading of pics. I was bummed that I couldn’t go to volleyball :-( Of all the places I could hurt my ankle worse, it would be at volleyball. I always get a little worried when I play before a race but I do try to be careful.

I also did BikiniBooty for hump day for a leg workout. I was able to do squats without any problem. The single leg squats were a little tough but my ankle was ok. I wore a brace to help with support. Sunset workout felt great.

Happy with my meals minus M4. I probably had way more guacamole and chips than I should have. I did better with my water. I was bad about with camping and I’ve been working hard at making sure I drink more.

I am dying for a good leg day.

Did the Sunset challenge and spent some time meditating before bed. I focused on my goals and what I needed to do to get there. I let go of my slips and focused on all my blessings. I want to focus on being happy and not be stressed out as much. Meditating helped me relax.

A Lazy Day

BeachBody Day68 – Turbo Fire Rest Day

Wednesday was a bit of a lazy day for me. I still got up to do my bootycall workout: Tone It Up’s Sand Castle X3set. I did 15 reps of each exercise. I was sore from my workouts yesterday and I could feel my sore muscles while I was working out.

After I dropped Gio off at school, it was time to do some homework with Seppe. I’ve been really making an effort to work with Seppe and get him ready for school. I had no motivation at all to workout. Instead of a morning workout, I took a nap and I didn’t want to get up at all. Maybe it’s PMS. I have no clue. I pulled myself out of bed because I didn’t want to be up all night long. I kept putting off my afternoon workout. I finally hit the gym before dinner. I did a short 15min HIIT on the bike. It’s the first Wednesday in a long time that I get to do my booty workouts (I’ve been doing long runs on Wednesdays lately). I’m tapering down before my 9 mile race on Sunday.

After the gym, I decided to do the Bikini Booty workout with Katrina from the Beach Babe DVD in honor of Hump Day :-) This really burned, especially after the HIIT on the bike. I also did a booty workout from BodyRockTv. It was a quick 3min one. I didn’t have a sand bag but I used my medicine ball instead. After the previous workouts, it really burned.

I ended with a 5min plank. I alternated positions in 30 sec intervals (hands, tummy tucks, hands, tummy tucks, side plank each side, hands, tummy tucks, elbows, hip dips).

Meals –

M1: Protein Pancake with cocoa almond butter and strawberries.

Had Protein Pancakes with my boys :-) So thrilled they like it.

M2: Bowl of grapes and Green Tea.

Snack time for Seppe: Larabar and an apple.

M3: Chicken, spinach, mushrooms, quinoa, bell peppers, tomatos, and avocado lettuce wrap with mango on the side.

This was very tasty :-)

M4: Luna bar.

M5: Teriyaki Salmon with quinoa, spinach, and mushroom mix.

Spinach and peas are about the only thing I have left that are green. Need to get to the grocery store asap!

80 oz. water. 1c. of green tea.

BeachBody Challenge Day40

Turbo Fire Rest Day 

This month of Turbo Fire is focused on Cardio so there aren’t any HIIT workouts – besides the ones I do separately from Turbo. Without the HIIT workouts, my Turbo Fire workouts are longer  45 min to an hour so it was nice to have a break from it today. Of course, it didn’t mean I had a day off.

Rain all day long, all week long.

My Longest Run so far.

Today was my Long run day.  I was just going an extra .25 miles every week but I decided to go for 8 miles today instead of 7.75 miles. It’s been raining non stop the last couple days.  I had hoped that there would be a little break from the rain, but I wasn’t lucky this time around.  It was rainy and windy my entire run, but I was surprised that it didn’t slow me down that much. I had a jacket with my hood on over my hat, but at the end you couldn’t tell. I was soaked except for my back. It felt great that I didn’t allow the rain to be an excuse for me. I really am working on Not making excuses and just Doing what I need to in order to reach my goals :-)

After 8 miles in the rain :-)

My jacket was zipped up during my run but my shirt got soaked anyways :-/

I usually take it easy after my run, but today I felt really good afterwards so I decided to do an afternoon workout.  I did get a half hour nap in after doing homework with Gio but I think that was more because of the rainy weather and less because I was tired.  I wanted to get back to doing booty workouts on Wednesdays. I haven’t been able to do what I like to because I switched my running schedule around. I need to find a way to get my Stair Circuit back into my routine. Yes, I miss running stairs. Lol.

I went with two NTC workouts. I really like Lea Michele’s Triple Threat workout. The Single Leg Lift with row is killer on my legs – especially since they were a little worn out from running. I could really feel this in my glutes today. I followed it with the Butt Buster workout.  Lots of lunges!  I was going to do another workout but I remembered that I hadn’t done my Mad Abs for Day 14. The side plank and crunches aren’t too bad for me yet, but the pushups are getting tougher. Today it was 23. I was able to do all of them on my feet :-) I know it’s suppose to be a workout for my abs, but my arms are the ones dying. I ended with a 5 minute plank.

1 min high plank, 1 min side plank (each side), 1 mean high plank, 1 min low plank

Meals:

M1: Cinnamon Apple Raisin with Unsweetened almond milk, Raw Almond Butter, Chia Seeds, and fresh cut apple slices.

Fresh apples made this very tasty :-)

M2: Luna Bar – pre run fuel :-)

M3: Wanted to get rid of some leftovers. Brown Rice, left over tofu mix, peas, and corn.

Brown Rice Tofu Veggie Bowl

M4: Larabar

M5: Turkey Meatballs and Broccoli. Also had the last of the peas and corn.

Lean and Green :-)

Had a Zico during my run and a Chocolate Zico after my run.

80 oz. of water.

BeachBody Challenge Day 2

Day 2

I meant to blog yesterday, but Ben had my laptop :-P So I’m catching up now. Yes, I continued with the Shakeology Cleanse during the SuperBowl.  Luckily, it was just me and the boys since Ben had to work. This made it easy for me to stick to the cleanse. My boys are young so the game wasn’t a big deal to them. I just had to feed them dinner and they were happy :-)

Breakfast was Green Tea and Shakeology with frozen banana

Snack – 1c of cherries

Lunch – Shakeology and Green tea – spilled half of my shake :-(

Snack – Shakeology. I like to have it after dinner (it’s like a dessert) but since I spilled half my lunch I needed the shake to help me make it to dinner.

Dinner – Tilapia, Spinach, and Broccoli Slaw – Wish I had taken a picture. I marinaded the Tilapia in Balsamic, honey, lemon juice and a little extra virgin olive oil. It came out soooo good! I highly recommend the Broccoli Slaw from Trader Joes. I usually sauté it, but I just used it raw for the salads and it tastes great.

Workouts:

Went for a 3 mile run but it was at a slower pace. My left knee actually hurting me quite a bit :-( I also felt really tired during the whole run. I went out before I ate so maybe I just needed some fuel.

I did Tone It Up’s 300 Rep Challenge that I modified for the Booty:

30 Walking Lunges

30 Kettlebell Swings (10 lbs)

30 BootyLifters

30 Heatwaves (from TIU’s Beach Bum Workout)

30 Squat Jumps

Repeat

Original 300 Rep Challenge

My time was 7:02 – I’ve done several modifications to the TIU’s 300 Rep Challenge and this one has to be my favorite. Get’s my heart racing and booty burnin :-)

Followed it with TIU’s Rush Workout X 3 with 20 Reps Each. This is such a great quick workout. I also did the last of Blogilates Week of 100 Challenges. Eagle Crunches – I did 5 sets of 20 to get to 100 :-) Ended with a 5 min plank (1 min on elbows, 1 min on hands, 1 min side plank each side, and 1 min on hands) for my PlankADay.

I joined a group of girls on twitter doing a 150Day Challenge. It’s 150 consecutive days of working out to prepare for summer. It doesn’t have to be super intense workouts. Just something everyday. Since I’ve worked out every day this week, I’m on Day 7! It’ll go perfectly with my Beach Body TurboFire Challenge since I can cover 90 days with it :-)
