Today I started a new workout routine as well! I woke up at 6:30 am and got ready for my first 2 a day workout! My morning workout was 2 miles of intervals on the treadmill. Then I went back to the gym in the evening for my second workout: Intervals on the arc trainer and a 45 minute training session. I'll be doing 2 a days on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays and one workout on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. My running will be done on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and I will be doing non-impact cardio on Saturdays and Sundays. I don't like doing impact workouts on days that I have weddings. It sounds like a solid plan and I'll be paying attention to my how my body reacts over the next week or two and adjust accordingly. Nutrition is going to play a major factor in this!
Before I get to today's food I have a mini grocery haul to share with you! A new Fairway opened up close to my house and I've been told I HAVE to go there because it is amazing so I headed over there. I was so overwhelmed! They had so much stuff, a huge gluten free section, tons of organic food and lots of health and wellness items. It was crazy! I was going to do my grocery shopping there this week but the produce was even more expensive than Whole Foods! I picked up a few things but I'll get my produce at Whole Foods later this week. Check out the mini haul!
Kale, brown rice cakes (banana walnut butter anyone?!), 3 avocados (on sale 3/$5), 2 packages of sesame seaweed snacks and some medjool dates.
More groceries later in the week!
Now on to today's food!
Post workout recovery smoothie. Banana, blueberries, pineapple, almond milk and Vega vanilla powder. So good!
Late morning snack was a Gluten Free Carrot Spice Muffin. These are really amazing. If you want a healthy muffin to snack on or enjoy for breakfast I really recommend trying these.
Lunch was a hummus plate with tons of veggies and some stuffed grape leaves. I was so hungry I forgot to take a photo!
Vita Coco coconut water after my workout.
I haven't eaten dinner yet. I'm still cooling off after my workout. Even after I shower I'm still warm. It takes me a while to get my body temperature down sometimes. Does that happen to anyone else? I have a feeling I'll be making a big salad for dinner then maybe I'll have a rice cake with some walnut butter.
Now that I'm doing workouts twice a day a few days during the week I really need to be on point with my nutrition so I'll have the energy to keep up my exercise routine while working the 6-7 days a week that I'm working now! I have two weddings this weekend so I'll be working twelve hour days Saturday and Sunday. If anyone has any tips on how to fuel my body correctly after that much activity I'd greatly appreciate it!
Oh and as a little teaser, I did another dehydrator test and it came out so good! I'll post it on Wednesday or Thursday most likely :)
Have a great evening! I'll photograph more of my meals tomorrow I promise! Just adjusting to the new schedule :)
