It has been a nasty week here in Louisiana. Raining everyday and the result I have zero energy! That's right I'm one of those people that blame how I feel on the weather...look someone or something has to be the blame! Well, BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER, I have had some pretty mediocre workouts and this morning was no different. I shot out of bed put on my workout clothes and went to the gym. As soon as I stepped on the treadmill I wanted to press stop and go home (or throw myself on the floor and throw a tantrum...not sure which feeling was stronger haha). I suffered through my workout anyway but didn't do cardio. Thought about it and that was the extent of it. I have days like this sometimes so I will just chalk it up to "One of those days." Hopefully this weather will clear up and my energy will come back in full swing!
My meals have been pretty clean with the occasional eating out with a friend. Here lately I have been craving plain Greek yogurt with honey like everyday. Not a bad craving if I do say so myself! My breakfasts have been consisting of eggs (I use egg beaters) scrambled with bell peppers, onions, garlic, sprinkle of pepper jack cheese and whatever meat I have available if any. Along side it I eat about 3/4 cup of original nonfat Greek yogurt with local honey. I did go to the store and purchase coconut oil that I have been cooking my eggs in. SO GOOD! I also have been topping both my yogurt and my egg scramble with chia seeds and flax seeds. Gives a little extra texture and adds tons of fiber! BONUS! I will be trying some new recipes using these and some other new items I have been wanting to try. I'll be using recipes from www.powercakes.net. She has a great deal of recipes on there and also fitness tips. Here is a pic of what my breakfasts have been looking like (sorry the pic isn't that pretty!)
I will be starting up some new cardio tomorrow and on Tuesdays and Thursdays next week! HELLO ZUMBA by my favorite fitness instructor Alli! So excited! I will be doing a 2 hour fitness class tomorrow. This consists of an hour and a half of Zumba and the last 30 minutes is a core workout! Words cannot explain how nervous and excited I am about this. Then I will be doing Zumba with Alli during the week! I am so burnt out with running and doing machines for cardio time to shake my hips and burns some fat! Updates coming soon!
Hope you all are having a great June! Keep up the good work, see you all next week! LOVE YOUR FACES!
