My first WIAW from Jenn at Peas & Crayons.
Woke up at seven-ish and made this mess...waited for my mom to get home from work and took a nice long walk with her and the dogs, although Kezo was being abnormally slow.
|4oz chobani oranges and cream greek yogurt, half a banana,|
chia seeds, wheat germ, raw chocolate powder,
bee pollen, muesli, and carob chips
Tucker decided he needed to try my drink...couldn't tell if he liked it though. With my shake I had an un-pictured hard boiled egg with ketchup.
|8oz original coconut milk with spiru-tein |
cappuccino protein powder and
some turmeric powder
- flat press
- chest flies
- side laterals
- front laterals
- shoulder press
- bicep curls
- concentration curls
- tricep kickbacks
- one-arm tricep extensions
- bent lateral
- upright row
I did twelve reps of each and ran through the set three times. It was fun!
Halfway through the workout I remembered that I hadn't taken my herb drink yet. The acupuncturist I go to precribed Chinese herbs for me to take which are supposed to help with my anxiety and with building internal strength. They taste horrible so I had a little bit of agave syrup and it helps.
|These are the raw herbs..I cooked them |
and strained them for a tea-like drink
|Salad with toubouli, broccoli, and feta cheese|
|A pear with white chocolate peanut butter|
It was such a nice day that I took Marlin (my golden) for a walk at a place next to the ocean. It was beautiful and when I got back I was completely surprised to see a box of flowers on my door step...
|Beautiful Roses from Ben for out |
Two Year Anniversary!
After my mom woke up we watched Ellen together and I made dinner.
|Homemade sweet Potato Chips with|
steak and ketchup
|Peppers with hummus|
I followed my dinner with an ab routine which went something like this:
15 straight leg butt/hip lifts
15 bent knee butt/hip lifts
15 crunch plus butt/hip lifts
15 toe reaches
15 bike crunches
15 leg lifts
1 minute plank
30 second side planks
I completed this three times and then watched Cupcake Wars!! Woo :)
My snack for the night was one of these babies with some carob chips:
Alright, off to finished my Nicholas Sparks book and to get some rest!!
