So remember when I laid out that plan of workout goals for the month of December? It totally lit a fire under me. I really feel like I’ve got my groove back.
I know I wasn’t going to follow up until the end of the month, but figured I would do a weekly check in. So in the past week, these were my workouts:
12/8 – Speed intervals on treadmill at gym. Sporadic speeds, but 1 minute sprint, 1 minute recover for 30 minutes with 5 minute warm up and 5 minute cool down.
12/9 – Spin Class & PT exercises
12/10 – Yoga (this was done at home since Brian had to leave for work early. I found a 20 minute video on-demand)
12/12 – Run – 3 miles at the gym
12/14 – Run – 4 miles out in the neighborhood (even tackled a hill I’ve been eyeing up all year)
12/15 – PT exercises
I did not make it to body pump due to scheduling issues on Thursday, but I’m feeling confident about my routine again.
I also got a NutriBullet this week. I don’t buy into all that “superfood” stuff, but I did want a way to easily consume more fruits & veggies. So far this is what I’ve been doing, I’ve been using spinach as my base and then adding some combo of the following: carrots, bananas, mandarins, blueberries, and apples. I’ve also been adding a dollop of fat free vanilla yogurt as well to give it some creaminess. When I made my first one with just water, it tasted watery.
So far I’m happy with it. I would usually take a yogurt and several pieces of fruit to work with me as part of my breakfast/lunch/snacks – sometimes I wouldn’t eat all the fruit. Now, I’m consuming all of that, plus more greens. Now I just need to do a little more research on which seeds and “extras” to add to them to make them good for post run / post workout recovery.
How were your workouts this week? Have any smoothie recipes to share? What “supplements” do you add to yours?
