Well, after taking a rest day yesterday and ending my night at work with disco fries (fries topped with gravy and mozzarella cheese, for those of you who haven’t had the joy of trying them), I knew I wanted to get a good sweat on today!
Upper body and cardio were on the agenda today. I worked my back, shoulders, and chest by following my go to upper body workout. For the shoulder raises, I did alternating lateral and front raises. This workout is great because it keeps you moving, you use lighter weights with more reps, and it really gets your heart pumping. Not only is it strength training, but it’s cardio too!
After that, I hopped on the treadmill for 25 minutes doing random bouts of intervals and inclines. There was no rhyme or reason to any of it, I was just trying to keep myself from getting bored!
I had a green protein smoothie as usual, so I’ll spare you the picture. Instead, I’ll let you in a stinky secret.
I’ll admit, the smell that takes over the kitchen after opening a can of tuna fish grosses me out a little bit. I feel like I am constantly trying to find new ways to enjoy tuna from the can that are not the traditional mayonnaise salad version. Hummus has become a staple for mixing with it, but just that is not enough. Today, I whipped out the sriracha! I squirted a ton into the tuna & hummus mixture to make it spicy but then added lemon juice to balance it out.
I contemplated for a minute about what else to add. It didn’t take me long to think about a typical hot wing and blue cheese combo. Well, we had gorgonzola in the fridge, so into the mixture it went! I used brown rice cakes for the base of my “sandwich’”.
Stinky tuna & stinky blue cheese made for a really stinky lunch. But, it was a really good combo and the sriracha and blue cheese significantly masked the fishiness of the tuna.
I enjoyed a simple arugula, lemon juice, and extra virgin olive oil salad on the side.
Now for some stinky work before dinner in the city with some lovely ladies. More on that another time!
