2 breakfasts in the same day is a win! 

 

Real talk, I love breakfast. Like I could eat it every day for every meal and never get tired of it. 

 

5/9:

  • What did I do?
    • Gym
      • Supersets Assisted Pull-ups / Bosu ball push ups
      • Supersets Burpee rope slams / mountain climbers
      • Supersets goblet squats / lunges (maybe? I don't remember)
      • Supersets lat pull downs / cross body hammer curls
      • 15 minute AMRAP abs
        • turtle crunches
        • leg lifts
        • vertical toe touches
        • reverse crunches
    • I had more work meetings than I would have liked and then I slacked. Only hit 6 things on my list
  • What did I eat?
    • protein pumpkin pancakes with turkey bacon
    • turkey sandwich with yogurt (on the side, not in the sandwich)
    • green smoothie
    • bbq chicken and sweet potatoes with a cranberry spinach salad
    • hot chocolate
  • How did I feel?
    • A little frustrated. I ended up making three separate dinners because my daughter didn't like what I was making for the kids and I didn't have to tell her yes, but it was the easier answer. Not too bad until I also had the grandchild wanting attention. And no one else was on the main floor, so I was trying to get everything done while getting back up, which didn't happen.
  • What didn't I do?
    • prep for a call tomorrow (5/11). I'll work on it today instead

5/10:

  • What did I do?
    • Bootcamp in the am. We did 4 - 6 min AMRAPs (well, technically, 3 were 6 minutes and the last was an unspecified amount of time
    • Strength in the pm
      • this was fairly uneventful, although I did get to flip the big tire. I spoke about this a bit in another thread, but the trainer for this class is new to training and he's horrible at programming. It's getting to the point that there really isn't a strength and conditioning class and the group is getting fairly frustrated. Luckily, we were able to speak to the owner, but it really makes me want to get my personal training certification to be able to teach this class.
    • Only 5 things on my work list. I had forgotten to do something that was supposed to have been completed by 5/1, so I had to go back and finish it. I probably could have made the project more than 1 tomato, but rules are rules.
    • My husband helped me get all of the things done on my home list, which was really nice
  • What did I eat?
    • pumpkin protein pancakes with turkey bacon
    • bean and cheese burritos (these are homemade and amazing)
    • bbq chicken and sweet potatoes with a cranberry spinach salad
    • hot chocolate
    • rice cake with cookie butter
  • How did I feel?
    • Today was a decent day. I didn't really have anything making waves. I do have something I need to talk to my husband about that I've been putting off (but is coming to a point where I can't put it off), so I'm a little nervous about that
  • What didn't I do?
    • the call I was supposed to prep for was cancelled, so that came off my plate until next week. I have to make 6 ppt slides and write a few e-mails that I missed. As long as I focus, I'll get a lot of things done today

I absolutely love bean and cheese burritos! It's also so easy to load them up with "whatever is in the fridge" that we eat them quite regularly :).

I'm glad you guys can talk to the owner as a group :). Was this the first time you flipped the tire, or did you do it before?

My husband and I have been using an app for meal planning and this is one of the recipes, so it's a specific recipe. But it's still amazing. We eat them pretty much every other week.

I've done it before in a handful of races, but never during training. And honestly, I don't know the weights of either tires, so I don't know comparatively how heavy or not these were. But it was still fun.

5/11:

  • What did I do?
    • No gym. I decided to sleep in and go later on in the day, but there was a schedule change and the afternoon class was cancelled
    • Got through 7 tomatoes at work for the day AND crossed off an outstanding task on my list
    • Also swept, vacuumed, and mopped
    • And baked a cake
  • What did I eat?
    • Egg whites with spinach, cheese, and salsa + toast
    • Burritos
    • spinach and goat cheese Hasselback chicken
    • hot chocolate
    • rice cake with nutella
  • How did I feel?
    • Another decent day. I wanted to go to the gym, but not going made my evening less rushed, which was also nice. 
  • What didn't I do?
    • Still slacking on a handful of e-mails I need to send out. Not a priority, but something that I need to get done. I also need to get some prep done for end of year evals, which I haven't done yet.

That was nice of you to bake the cake for their cake pops. But if they're ruining your cake anyway, you could just eat some :D 

 

I love cake pops, especially when they are homemade, so I am willing to wait. Fun fact: spice cake with cream cheese icing is the bomb.

 

5/12:

  • What did I do?
    • Gym - am
      • 15 min AMRAP / rest 2 minutes / 15 min AMRAP
      • 6 min core
    • Gym - pm
      • Squat work / accessories
      • OHP work / accessories
    • Shine
    • 8 work tomatoes. It was a busy, but productive day. I need a better system for when I don't hit my tomatoes and making sure I'm catching up. 
    • cleaned the hall bathroom 
    • finished baking cakes (I made 3 overall) and did a bunch of dishes.
  • What did I eat?
    • spinach egg white scramble with salsa and cheese / protein toast
    • burritos
    • mango banana protein smoothie (which was perfect. literally smooth like gelato)
    • popcorn chicken (we were supposed to have fish, but I didn't eat enough before the gym, so I needed something I didn't have to work to make)
    • hot chocolate
  • How did I feel?
    • Another good day. I had part of the difficult conversation with my husband and it was really a "he didn't think about it" scenario (which is what I expected)
  • What didn't I do?
    • I had planned on cleaning the primary bathroom, but didn't. I also had a task that got added to my plate yesterday that I didn't complete yet.

Mmm spice cake.   

 

I hope your weekend went well and your cake pops were great!

Adding that to the million other things? 😛

Literally had that last weekend for my sis' bday.  I haven't had spice cake in like... a decade before that

Ridiculous Update Time:

 

So went to Denver. I ended up having weird and crazy feet swelling and overall just general crappiness. I think it was a combination of the second week of travel and traveling to Denver (I don't do well in Denver and this is not the first time I've felt badly after travel - and I didn't stay in my normal hotel, which could have something to do with it). *sigh* the joys of travel.

 

So feeling better now, I'll be back to the grind shortly.
