It’s Naturally Delicious!

Let me start this post of by saying how JEALOUS I am of all the runners who got to run in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon today!!  I only dream of being able to do that when I’m older..I’m already training (eh, somewhat….)

I woke up this morning not in the mood to work out.  I tried convincing myself to “take Sunday off” but before I could do that my bff motivated me to go!  I’m glad she did because I felt 3985723 more better after I worked out!  It’s great to have someone to motivate you, you should totes try it!

Workout

Warm up

I started out this workout a tad bit different than one of my usual trips to the gym.  Rather than doing my usual walk/run combo I warmed up walking for 5 minutes (5.0 incline at 4.0 mph) and ran for about 20 minutes (6.5 mph) and then cooled down by walking for 5 more minutes (same as above)  It was quite a workout since I’m not that great of a runner, but it set a good tone for the rest of my workout!

Weights

Kept it basic this morning, just switched it up a tad from usual…

Hip Abductor (4 sets of 15 at 90 lbs)

Hip Adductor (4 sets of 20 at 100 lbs)

Seated Dip (4 sets of 15 at 60 lbs)—Gotta get muscles!!!  Or at least have some toned arms since I’m going to Puerto Rico this Spring!

Back Machine [Don’t know the name of this, machine said low back 313 whatever that means.  But it is where you have your feet up and then you extend your back.  It strengthens and tones lower back muscles.]  (3 sets of 25 at 160 lbs)

Leg Lifts (3 sets of 20 at bodyweight)

Abbench (3 sets of 40 on each [back, right side, and left side])

And that concludes my workout for the day!

Grocery Shopping!

So recently my favorite aisle of the grocery store has been the healthy, natural, organic food aisle.  So today when I went to the store, I naturally found myself pulled to that section.  I picked up some Bear Naked granola, Kashi Whole Grain Blueberry Waffles, Organic Mac and Cheese (obsession of the moment, even though I’ve only had it twice…), Natural Peanut Butter, Fruit Leathers (DELICIOUS!!), vanilla lite yogurt, Stevia, and a few other things that I can’t remember off the top of my head.  Unfortunately, healthy food is kinda sorta expensive…not looking forward to mom seeing the receipt -____- But boy am I excited for breakfast, lunch, and dinner tomorrow!  I’ve never tried the Kashi Waffles but the ranked a B+ on my fooducate app for my phone so they must be good and healthy!

Stack of yogurts we bought!

Well, I’m off to bed.  School tomorrow and a starbucks trip calling my name!

Time to work it out!

Hey all!

This is my first official post!  A little exciting!  So I think today was quite a productive day if I do say so myself.  Sure I woke up at noon, but I kicked my butt in gear as soon as I got out of bed!  I was craving something sweet so for breakfast I decided to make the one and only Protein Cake!  It was delicious, healthy, and only 90 calories.  Winning!

Workout

Warm Up                                                                                                                                                                  

Afterwards, I went to the gym for an hour and a half.  I haven’t been to the gym in a few days and man did it kick my butt.  Never doing that again!  I started by doing 25 minutes on the treadmill.  I downloaded this on app on my phone called “From couch potato to 5k” so I ran according to that.  It started with 5 minutes of walking for warm up (which I did on 5.0 incline and 4.2 mph) and then it had me run for 1.5 minutes then walk for 1 minute and that went on for about 15 minutes (I ran on 7.5 mph and walked at 5.0 incline and 4.5 mph)

Weights

Then I hit the weights!

Pull ups 3 sets of 10

Dips 3 sets of 10

Leg Press 3 sets of 15 at 50 lbs

Arm Circuit 3 sets of 15 reps (10 and 15 lbs…yeah yeah pretty wimpish, I’m working on my arm muscles!)

Seated Dip Machine 3 sets of 15 at 60 lbs

Hip Abductor 3 sets of 15 at 90 lbs

Hip Adductor 3 sets of 15 at 100 lbs

Lunch/Dinner

Since I woke up so late, my whole eating schedule was off today.  So since 4:30 was a little late for lunch and a little early for dinner, I had lunner.  Pretty cool in my opinion!  I made an egg white and turkey omelette type thing (You can hardly call this an omelette…) I used 3 eggwhites and one piece of turkey and cooked it together on the stove.

It was quite delicious if I do say so myself!  I also drank some milk with it.  (Skim is my favorite kind)

Now I’m working on some homework that I put off until last minute.  At least none of it is due tomorrow because my grade is going on a day long trip to visit a somewhat nearby university.  Can’t wait!  And there are some good shows on tonight like Once Upon a Time and Desperate Housewives.  The Next Iron Chef is on too, but it’s on at the same time as Desperate Housewives so I just DVR it.

Have a good day!
