Eats plus a workout
I figured with that last rant about nutrition that I would share with you all some of my recent eats. I’ve been doing lots of fruits/veggies for carbs along with oatmeal because my stomach seems to handle that ok. Meat/fish/greek yogurt as my protein source. Wait I left out fats, of course that would be peanut butter 😉 I also get fat from things like coconut oil, other nut butters, nuts and EVOO.
Grass fed beef and broccoli topped with salsa! Whole foods medium salsa, obsessed.
My favorite carb source: butternut squash cooked up in some real butter and cinnamon, nom
Baby romaine/spinach mix topped with chicken breast, zucchini and previously mentioned butternut squash mix!
Eggs, grapes and a kiwi
Because it wasn’t enough on it’s own to count as breakfast/pre-workout…
Alongside oatmeal/ PB&CO dark chocolate dreams. Shovelin’ in the goods
Green monsters made with almond milk, spinach, frozen or fresh nanas, muscle gauge cinnamon bun whey and ice. Yeah please try this combo
But don’t worry I also eat cupcakes that look like frogs.
Case and point. That fella was gone in about .5 seconds
Let’s just say it’s best to listen to your body and feed it what it asks for. I haven’t been counting/weighting and I feel so much better! Our bodies will tell us what they need, we just have to listen.
Onto the workout… This was done group style
Warm up: ran 6 laps around the basketball court, suicides using the foul lines, lateral work with a few burpee’s mixed in
work it out:
6 different stations with 1-2 exercises. The stations that had two exercises, you could alternate as needed. 2 minutes at each station. 2 rounds.
*Burpee into DB snatch
*KB swings/ plie squats
*Walking lunges with DB’s
*Counter balance squats (squat holding a medicine ball in front of you, hold at bottom position for a few seconds then repeat)/ jump squats
*Stair runs/ outer hip abduction on bench (with one foot on bench top and other on floor, squat down then stand lifting the leg/foot from the floor to about a 90 degree angle to your side)
*Lat pull down/ ball push ups
*Bicep curls on the BOSU/ wall jumps (jump up and down hitting the wall each time you are up) (I did wall walks)
*Knee to opposite elbow plank/ ball crunch (I held the ball with my hands and brought it up along with both feet, so like a v-up with the stability ball)
* Chair dips (did them weighted)/ box jumps
As I said it was a group workout, I hit up a class called Amp’d up at my gym most Friday mornings and it’s basically an hour long plyo/body weight workout. There tend to be 3 people consistently but today there were 5 of us!
Ever been to a group plyo workout?
