WIAW 9/11

Must first acknowledge those who lost their lives 12 years ago on this day.

I was 6 years old, wasn’t exactly sure what was going on…but I remember the TV had the news on for days.

Its always bothered me, the event, why and how people can do that. I will never understand and hope it won’t happen again.

Yesterday was a great day of eats!

I started my morning off with a yummy Quinoa Crunch Bowl (you might have seen the picture on my instagram)

After a lot of job searching and what not, I finally wrote down my workout and I was so excited to try it out because I knew it was going to be an epic one!

I promised to share the workout here on my instagram, so here it is!

Cardio Functional Workout

And if you don’t know how to do any of the exercises…

  • Burpee with Knee to Elbow (or tummy tuck)

Perform a burpee, while in the plank position, bring left knee to left elbow and right knee to right elbow!

  • Side Plank Hug to Open Chest Fly with dumbbell

While in this position, swing arm under your body…like this –>

Counts as 1 rep! Do 10!

  • Double Pop Squats! So simple, you pulse TWO squats and then jump like you would with a jump squat. Click here and fast forward to 1:50
  • Plank Hops

After those three rounds, I hit my BACK, BICEPS, AND SHOULDERS

Post workout/Lunch was a Chocolate Brownie Quest Bar

(Quest Bar review coming soon!)

If you are wondering why I look like I want to smile but trying not to…its because I have Quest Bar in my mouth. And it tasted fantastic! So I’m obviously, weirdly happy.

Dinner was a good one…if you saw my Instagram pic, you probably know how much I am in love with Beet and Feta Sandwiches now. Words can not even describe.

(Recipe on this later)

I was very satisfied after this sandwich. Definitely making these suckers again!

Thanks Jenn for always hosting WIAW!

What I Ate Wednesday 7/31

What I Ate Wednesday: Fun Food & Fitness

Hi all! Good morning to ya and happy What I Ate Wednesday! (Haven’t done one of these in months!) And can you believe it’s the last day of July?!

Thanks Jenn for always hosting! Even though I’ve hardly done any of these, I always enjoy reading other bloggers’ WIAW posts!

I love Brittany’s WIAWs, don’t know why. She must be cool or something

The above picture pretty much sums up my last few days; the reason I haven’t blogged the past two days.

Since I am not working right this moment, I’m trying to spend some time doing things out of the house, running, and tanning…which ends up taking up most of my day and I end up not opening my laptop. (Which I need a new one, by the way!)

Okay, enough of that, let’s get to WIAW!!

I started my day off with a delicious green protein smoothie! It was so tasty, and if you head over to my Instagram, you will see the recipe!

A couple hours later, I headed to JCP to try on some bathing suits…which I got on MEGA sale. I feel awesome.

When I got home, I was more than hungry, but I knew we were having an early dinner in about 3 hours, so I made a spinach banana almond butter wrap. Please do not make a gross face until you try it.

(Using recycled photos because I didn’t take time to take a picture of it because…well, I was hungry!)

I used these tortillas

Then I spread almond butter on one sideDSC09788

Added a banana and rolled it up. (Ignore the Chia seeds)IMG_20130510_055846

These wraps are very mild tasting so you can’t even tell they are a spinach wrap! Score!

A little while later, after a nice cup of coffee…

We had TACO SALAD!!!

I just really love taco salad. We have it every couple of weeks and it’s just so good. I don’t usually eat a lot of cheese, but taco night, I do eat it! So this meal was about 90% clean, full of lettuce and healthy veggies, and NON-GMO gluten free corn chips!

I may or may not have eaten some of these bad boys…

Time to head to the track for a hard workout!

Thanks to my instagram friends for cheering me on!

Hayls!

    • 4X1000m repeats with jogs in between each one
    • 1 lap cooldown
    • 3X200m repeats w/ jogs

For post workout, I just ate a chocolate cookie dough quest bar, baked!

If you haven’t tried a baked Quest Bar yet, you are missing out! Better than a chocolate chip cookie out of the oven. NOT KIDDING!!!!

Have a great day!
