Yesterday was a such a productive day. I knocked out a lot on my college to-buy list and it lifted so much weight off my shoulders. Only a few more things to go and I should be set. I’ve been putting off buying the books because that one’s gonna hurt the pocketbook a bit. Ay yi yi. I also need a planner but neither Walmart nor Target had an hourly one. Really?? So it’s off to Office Max today for that.
Although I’ve been loving taking classes at the gym, my last two workouts have been at home and based off a newly found site that I really love! Jillfit! How have I never known about them before? If you’re looking for some new workouts or exercise/nutrition info, hit them up. They are legit.
Yesterday I did this Upper Body split . Let’s just say my chest is hurting today. I have a love/hate relationship with DOMS but in the end, it means I challenged my body well and had a successful workout. What I do like to drink to help with DOMS is Xtend. I just shake it with some water and I’m good to go.
Xtend in my new water bottle from Target! The container is actually clear but I was drinking the watermelon flavor, hence the extra pinkness. 😉
I really like to drink Xtend during my workouts as it also gives me a boost of energy so that I can really push myself. Plus, it just plain tastes good! I just saw that they have come out with a new and improved formula so I will be interested to try that out!
This morning, I went for one of Jillfit’s treadmill workouts that I found on this “10 killer treadmill workouts” post. I did the Fartlek one, but modified the speed a tad because i’m scared to go faster than 9 mph on the treadmill, haha. I feel like I’m going to fly right off the end!
I had a couple 3 ingredient power muffins before I completed the workout:
and followed it with some tropical oats.
1/2 cup oats cooked in 1 cup water and 1/2 cup liquid egg whites. diced peaches mixed in, topped with blended silken tofu
+ coconut extract.
So remember this tilapia I showed last time?
I promised I would share the KEY ingredient that makes it (or anything for that matter) taste amazing:
I found this gem at Walmart and was very surprised to find that it had a pretty clean ingredient list and nice nutritional stats.
It’s basically made from canola oil, egg yolks, water, and seasonings:
The taste is SO. GOOD. It is a great spread for any meat, as I also tried it on chicken last night:
with sprouted grain toast/hummus/garlic powder, and broccoli with balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, smart balance
I recommend putting it under the broiler, that way it gets this delicious, smoky flavor. Great find at good ol’ Wally World. 😀
Off to Office Max! But first…
What is the fastest you go on the treadmill?
