So this has been a helluva busy week for me, but through it all, I’ve managed to maintain a little sanity and balance…and it just so happens that today is Thursday, so you know what THAT means!
What is it about Thursdays that makes me want to make a list of things?
For starters, it could be the fact that I’ve been blog-stalking the queen of all list makers this week. Last week, I finished up with Phase 1 of LiveFit (review coming soon!) and I thought I would take a little break this week and play around with some other workouts. Ever since Lindsay started up the weekly feature Tuesday Trainer, I’ve been saying I was going to get around to trying some of the workouts.
Well, EIGHT months later, and I finally committed! This week, I’ve done 3 out of the 28 different workouts…
1. Tuesday Trainer
Hey, go big or go home, right?
Plyometrics, combination moves, and supersets…the recipe for one sweaty Heather!
So far, the Back & Bi’s workout has been my favorite (I LOVE working my back…and if I’m completely honest, although I know plyometric moves are some of the most effective for increasing endurance, burning calories, and developing muscle power, I can be a total wimp at times.
If given the choice, I’d take each and every explosive move and pour water on their fuses! 😉
2. Thinking Outside The Box
In an effort to clean out the fridge before the weekend, I’ve been having to get a little more creative/accepting when it comes to meals and snacks this week, but what is it they say, “Necessity breeds innovation”?…
Like the brilliant idea I had last night to use up the last of my spinach…
Green monster smoothie meets overnight oats!
Just a couple handfuls of spinach, protein powder, 1/2 banana, and water blended up and then mixed with 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1/2 cup raw oats, a splash of vanilla extract and a
dash dump of cinnamon…
VOILA…greenified overnight oats!
Or how about the 1/2 a cantaloup I busted out at work today…I got some looks, but eh, I know they were just jealous of my juicy melon(s…that’s what she said!)
Or my (unpictured) spinach and avocado sandwich I inhaled (hence the lack of photographic evidence) a few hours later…I swear you could slather avocado on a stick and I’d eat it!
And hey, why not eat an entire thing of kale chips with dinner?…man, I’ve had a LOT of greens today!
So why have I been trying so desperately to clean out my fridge?
I know I haven’t talked about it much…honestly because I felt like the day would never get here, but at 9am tomorrow morning, I’ll be on board a Southwest airplane on my way to the BLEND Retreat!
Peace out homies, I’ve got more packing to do and I have to get up in like 5 1/2 hours!
What are your 3 “T’s” for Thursday?
Have you ever tried any of the Tuesday Trainer workouts? What did you think?
