Holy guacamole! You guys are blowing me away with your entries for my Champion Workout Gear Giveaway (yes, I have read each and every one of them so far!). When I said you had to promise to leave a nice comment, it definitely didn’t have to be about me…but I’ll still take ‘em, and proudly at that. Thank you guys, really!
Now let me fill ya’ll in on today’s workout and food because, well, they’re all pretty awesome.
A couple of months ago, Lindsay sent me a couple of her favorite cardio workouts to try when I mentioned I was in need of some new ideas. After she mentioned them again this morning, I knew it’d be the perfect day for it.
I used her Hill and Speed Interval Workout as a base for what my routine looked like. I ended up increasing a few of the speeds a bit but it was a great workout, and I loved the mix of HIIT speeds and inclines. Thanks, Lindsay!
I am officially obsessed. Jay has even noticed my newfound obsession. His exact words today when he came home from work for lunch,
“Wow, another smoothie, huh? You must really be liking those things.”
You’re darn right, hubby. I sure do.
Today’s combo was a delicious Strawberry Almond Smoothie Bowl:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 scoop vanilla SunWarrior
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- ~1 tbsp slivered almonds
About an hour later, I also snacked on a golden delicious apple and a piece of Banana Raisin Pumpkin bread. Yum!!
I had a meet up with someone earlier this evening, but luckily, I had already cooked up tonight’s dinner this afternoon, so it was ready and waiting for me upon my return.
Oh my gosh, this Pumpkin Black Bean Soup is absolutely divine. Especially when it’s topped with a little cheese. I think I now may have another obsession on my hands.
I’ll be sure to share the details tomorrow, but for now, it’s time for me to relax, eat my soup, and enjoy the nice glass of red wine I just poured myself.
(FYI: Cooking with wine at 3:00 in the afternoon really tests your willpower, just sayin’)
But I was good and held off…until now.
Catch ya later, gators!
Question for the Evening:
