Crazy Good Eats (Lots of Pics)

I love a day that’s filled with good eats. I’m a foodie, so what do you expect!?

Anyone else love the show “Good Eats” with Alton Brown? My fave cooking show by far!

Thursday

I started the morning off with fresh made juice

Then, I left home and headed out to go do some social media marketing for someone, so once I arrived…I was starving. Juice just doesn’t cut it! Good thing I brought along a Clif Crunch Bar! Yes, these things are amazing. Go try one. Might not be the #1 healthiest bar out there, but sheesh, its delicious!

One of the highlights of my day was heading to EarthFare to make a salad from the fresh salad bar!

In the mix: Mixed salad greens, cauliflower, bell peppers, onions, cucumber, just a few pieces of cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, and pineapple, grilled chicken, 1/2 boiled egg, green olives…When I got home, I added my own feta cheese and dressing! I’m just weird I guess.

Also, I drank a delicious Zevia along with it! Go try one! They are delicious, especially since it’s getting so warm out…these make a great choice over artificial sugar & calorie filled junk sodas. Zevia for the win!

Got home around 3:20 and that meant coffee and getting myself pumped up for an easy 3 mile run…HAHA, that turned around! I ended up running a medium paced 5.2 mile run without stopping.

Also picked up a new bright RBX shirt from TJMaxx (love that place) that was $7.99…had to share that. They have amazing deals like no other!

Sports Bra is a Jockey brand bra. Loved it! It was very comfortable ($12.99) and had criss-cross straps which I like!

I have no idea what I’m doing with my hand, by the way!

Check out that bruise! Yeah, its been there for a week and I’m really starting to hate it.

Dinner was leftover lentil bean and Italian sausage stew. Eat your lentils! Going to try to have this meal every week.

For dessert…I had KEY LIME PIE!

Okay, no no no, I didn’t really. I sort of did though. I had picked up a Fage Key Lime Pie yogurt at Publix and it tasted just like Key Lime Pie!!

Excited for the weekend! Hoping for a long run!

 

What are you doing? Anything fun?

HIIT It! (Love to Sweat?)

Happy Thursday! I seriously thought it was Thursday yesterday and I was so ready for Friday…big letdown!

So…yesterday, I had an amazing workout. It was one of those workouts that make you feel like a total beast after

How I feel walking out of the gym

First, I ran 4 miles in the hot sun with pretty good mile splits and total average pace

I was looking through some of my workouts on my Workout page on the blog, and came across my favorite HIIT workout that I used to do a LOT this time last year.

HIIT!

I completed 4 rounds and felt so in shape, it was awesome! I thought I would have to quit after 2 rounds from being so worn out but I was completely the opposite. Definitely could have gone 2 more rounds if I had more time.

After 2 rounds, the tuck jumps were really hurting the balls of my feet, so I switched over to 20 mountain climbers (1 rep = when right leg comes to chest)

4-9..4-9

I also did some core work just going through a lot of my favorite moves for about 10 minutes.

I challenge anyone, who is capable, to do at least 2 rounds of the workout above! You must do each exercise back to back! No stopping till the full round is over.

You can definitely do it!
