I had another good day yesterday so I guess I'll start from the beginning. I woke up early and had 2 clementines right away to to get some sugar in my system to sustain me through my workout. I finally put together a sick workout utilizing the heavy bag in my free time. Here is what I did:
15 minute jog @5.0 mph (12:00 mile)
15 minutes on arc trainer (if you don't know what that is, the best way I can describe it is if the stairmaster and elliptical had a lovechild).
On the heavy bag:
1-3 minute round boxing
1-3 minute round elbows and knees
1-3 minute round kicks
2-3 minute rounds freestyle (punches, knees, kicks, elbows)
(3x) 30 seconds straight punches followed by 1 minute ground and pound.
Awesome workout! I felt great after! I also have a product review for you. I picked up some Vega Sport Electrolyte Hydrator at Whole Foods on a whim the other day.
You can get more info here and it's also where I grabbed the pic. It is a small tube of powder that you add to your water and it is supposed to rehydrate you and replace your electrolytes during a workout (like Gatorade would) minus the calories and yucky stuff. I grabbed one of each flavor and tried the lemon-lime one yesterday. It was actually really good! It works like Gatorade but tastes more like vitamin water. It has a very mellow taste but is still good. Whether or not it really works who knows I'll probably use a couple times a week. I think it was only 99 cents per tube too so it's way cheaper than vitamin water, gatorade or coconut water.
And now onto the food!
When I got home from the gym I made myself a protein shake to drink while making this delicious breakfast. I had some oats with a banana and a tbsp of chopped walnuts. Lots of cinnamon, naturally.
I decided to get some Chipotle for lunch. Such a great decision, my burrito bowl was delicious! Filled with the usual suspects, brown rice, black beans, pico de gallo, guacamole and lettuce. YUM!
In the afternoon I had an unpictured coffee and some almonds.
For dinner I had some delicious Mediterranean Hummus from Trader Joe's with 3 stuffed grape leaves (there is one hidden under the carrots) and a big ol' pile of carrots.
Such a delicious day started off by a sick workout. Feeling good these days. Been making sure to drink a ton of water too which is so important. I love having a little more spare time in the winter to be able to actually plan my meals and workouts :)
Hope you all have a great day! Happy hump day :)
