WELL! You guys are just as excited about my SOYJOY giveaway as I thought you would be…maybe even more so? Either way, keep those entries comin’!
Since I was too busy giving you guys an opportunity to get yours hands on some awesome loot, I never got a chance to fill you in on my morning.
Bright and early, I trekked it over to the gym for the first time since before vacation to attend another BodyCombat class. This is the only other one that I’ve taken since my first class, and I’ll say that it was just as enjoyable and butt-kicking as the last.
I decided not to stay for the follow-up BodyFlow class and instead, opted to head to the “scary part of the gym” for some upper weight and abs moves.
|Shoulder Press||3 sets x 15 reps|
|Bicep Curls||3 sets x 15 reps|
|Tricep Kickbacks||3 sets x 15 reps|
|Chest Press||3 sets x 15 reps|
|Crunches on Stability Ball||50 reps|
|Lower Ab Crunches with Stability Ball||2 sets x 20 reps|
(I used 8 lb. dumbbells for all of the above moves)
To say I’ll probably be sore tomorrow is most likely an understatement. I can already sense the burn in my upper arms and shoulders. I love it!
After the gym and a quick trip to the grocery store, I came home to make some breakfast.
I had been planning on a buckwheat bowl all morning but ended up making a last-minute swap for an egg white and cheese sandwich.
I heated up 2 egg whites in my microwave egg cooker, and topped them with some fresh basil leaves and a slice of reduced fat provolone cheese. I also added a big ‘ol slice of tomato and some salt and pepper along with my toasted Thomas’ Honey Wheat English Muffin.
Of course, I also enjoyed a glass of iced coffee with skim milk, Truvia, and a side of creeper.
Mid-morning, I sipped on downed a small can of Low-Sodium V8 juice.
As you guys know, vegetables seem to be giving me some tummy troubles lately, so after a suggestion from a reader, I’ve decided to try using the V8 to cover some (but not all) of my daily veggie intake.
I’ve actually always enjoyed V8 (my dad always used to drink it growing up) so I don’t mind incorporating it. Plus, I felt fine after drinking it, so hopefully this will help me out a bit!
Now, I’m about to figure out what in the world I want for lunch and then finally go to get my engagement ring taken care of. I’ve really missed being able to wear it!
Question for the Afternoon:
What’s your favorite way to enjoy veggies? (Fresh, steamed, cooked, broiled…in juice form?)
