I am not the type of person that would ever over train. Trust me, I’m more likely to skip a workout than spend more than 60 minutes at the gym. However, because of the situation, I ended up doing 2 pretty intense workouts within a matter of 12 hours.
Last night after work, I went to a customer’s studio to check out the facility as well as do a small group workout.
It was a 30 minute total body workout that left me feeling energized and surprisingly mobile. You know that feeling you get after a great yoga session? That’s how I felt.
We ended up playing around on some other equipment while he was showing us around, so I didn’t do too bad in the calorie burn department.
As usual, I was starving by the time I get home. As soon as I walked in the door, I raided the fridge. Hummus, lentil chips, leftover chicken, and brownies were all consumed before finding my “dinner” on the doorstep.
My Netrition order came yesterday and whenever I get a new product, I usually can’t wait more than 5 seconds to dig in. I’ve been wanting to try P28 protein bread for years. No joke. I’ve had it in my iPhone notes and Netrition finally started selling it, so I scooped one up.
I did what any normal person would do and put almond butterand banana on it. The bread consistency was different than normal bread. It was a little chewier, but with a quick toast, it’s just like whole wheat but with 14g of protein per slice! I also really like the new Barney Bare. The original stuff has added sugar and salt, but this honestly doesn’t taste bland despite not having any additives except for palm fruit oil. The consistency is smooth like your typical Jiffy peanut butter, which is what makes is super awesome.
Remember last year when I did 5am bootcamp? Guess what? I’m baaaaack!
Joe got me a gift card for it for Christmas. I asked for it, but the 4:45am wake up was not fun. I knew I was going to need something to power me through, so I mixed Fitmixer aminos in a to-go bottle last night to drink on the drive to the gym.
It was all set up when I walked in, and to be honest, I was a bit nervous since I’d just done an intense workout less than 12 hours prior.
Despite my nerves, I rocked it! I felt so good and I have no idea where all of my energy came from.
When I burn that much, it’s usually a ravenous type of day.
I made a huge, thick green smoothie with frozen Chobani cubes, banana, spinach, protein powder, almond milk, and frozen dark sweet cherries.
I love the feeling of finishing a workout before work. Now I can look forward to relaxing on the couch watching TV with
ice cream salmon and veggies later.
