Hey thereeee!! HAPPY SUMMER 2011!! I’m officially done with EVERYTHING school-related. Hallelujah!
I’ve been taking full advantage of my free time by job searching, socializing, working out, cooking, and blogging. I love being able to catch up on the many blogs that I read and find some fantastic new ones!!
I also just finished watching “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” … YES, this was like 8 years ago. I LOVED it. I love Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as actor/actresses!!
Some recent workouts…
- Did some SQUATS on WEDNESDAY Bodypump style with 20 pounds worth of dumbbells on each end of the three pound bar. 3 x 15. Holy. smokes. I am STILL really sore! Tomorrow’s leg day again, so I look forward to doing some more!!
- Yesterday I tried not ONE, but TWO new-to-me workouts…
2. I also did THIS interval workout on the elliptical. TRY THIS!! It was SO effective and really got my heart rate up. I was sweatin’ like crazy.
Today I did a 45 (really, 50) minute SPIN CLASS! I’d taken a couple before, but it had been a LONG, LONG time. It kicked my butt, that’s for sure. You think you’re in perfect shape? Take a spin class and get back to me.
Recent eats have included the usual…lots of Greek yogurt, chicken/turkey, and veggies! But watermelon has been making an
hourly daily appearance as well. It’s one of my favorite summer foods!!
cucumber, broccoli, chicken, and watermelon
leftover vanilla Chobani + watermelon + cinnamon
chicken, sweet potato, and broccoli
vanilla Chobani + Kashi GOLEAN + berries
lettuce + roasted broccoli + sweet potato fries + chicken + ketchup
egg whites scramble with turkey, green bell pepper, and tomato
sweet potato + lettuce + lean ground beef + salsa
turkey deli meat + mustard
WHOLE FOODS FOR DINNER…kale, collard greens, broccoli, marinated skewered veggies, red quinoa, fried tofu, some green Indian mush (not bad!! just don’t know the name..), lemon-rosemary chicken, cherry barbeque chicken, tempeh, and a chicken wing!!
I did NOT like the tempeh! I think it needed to be marinated or something…
But I’m always up for trying NEW foods!!
TOMORROW night is my annual class pool party that my best friend and I host every year!! Should be a BLAST!
ENJOY your night, everyone!! I will be back soon with SUMMER GOALS…
