wow, round twenty? craaazy.
i have to make this post super speedy because all my ladiesss are coming over in fifty eight minutes! eep!
oh, by the way, amazing grass winner will be announced at the end.
breakfast was something new and delicious!
meal 1: egg white wrap @ 8:30 AM
first i smeared a high fiber, low carb la tortilla factory tortilla with a wedge of laughing cow cheese and about 1/4 of an avocado~
then i topped this with some egg whites that i actually made in the microwave.. super simple! i made them in a rectangle tupperware so they came out.. well, rectangular! duh.
i topped the egg whites with reduced sugar ketchup.
all wrapped up and ready to eat!
sooo good. SO GOOD.
lunch came a whole lot later because this kept me full for ever.
meal 2: turkey+wasas+cottage cheese+tomatoes+avocado+black pepper @ 1:30 PM
mmmm.. this was so good TOO! i was all about delicious food today. first, i mixed the cottage cheese with (canned) italian seasoned diced tomatoes. this created a flavor similar to lasagna! then i topped two wasas with turkey, the cottage cheese mixture, some avocado and black pepper. perfection.
since i ate lunch so late i only had an apple before the gym. i didn’t take a photo because i ate it while driving. safety first!
today was a cardio + abs day according to my jamaican me bikini ready challenge.
i actually made this cardio routine up as soon as i hopped onto the elliptical!
two mile trio!
i decided to go two miles on the elliptical, two miles on the treadmill and finish up with two miles on the bike. i had to go 45 minutes total, this is how it worked out:
elliptical: 15 minutes, 2 miles
i just made sure that when i hit 7.5 minutes i was at one mile and then made sure to hit 2 miles by the time the timer hit 15 minutes. i averaged at 90 RPMs.
treadmill: 20 minutes, 2 miles
i am a big numbers geek, so while i ran i calculated how fast i had to go in order to get my two miles in in twenty minutes while still accelerating the speed each minute. this formula worked out to 2.1 miles! perfect. and it was fun.
bike: 10 minutes, 2 miles
for this part, i knew i had to hit 0.2 miles with each minute so i would hit 2 miles in the 10 minutes. i gauged my speed according to this calculation and it worked out perfectly!
this cardio was SO fun and it went by super quick! total time: 45 minutes.
i finished the workout off with 15 minutes of abs:
(i did each ab move for one minute and then moved onto the next for a total of three times through)
- floor crunches
- stability ball roll out
- stability ball tuck
- scissor/flutter kicks
- stability ball crunch and twist
after the gym my appetite was raging so i threw the whole wait-an-hour-after-cardio rule out the window and devoured a nuts & cranberry luna bar before i could even think about taking a photo!
i got home and made two flavors of hummus for the girls night tonight! susan’s sunflower hummus and my own recipe for sun dried tomato basil hummus:
YUM! i will post the recipe tomorrow!
i will show you the rest of the hors d’ouvres i whipped up when i post tomorrow. i gotta hurry and post this so no time to ramble!
there was nothing significant for this week’s flashback post so i just decided to do “this day X number of years ago…” style post.
i was starting my second body for life challenge and loving up on my penny girl.
ziplock bags full of protein pancakes. something everyone should have a photo of, right?
i love this photo of penelope! i wonder where that hoodie of mine is.. hmm.. i miss it…
nothing exciting was happening in january 2008.. but here are a few candid shots!
in ‘07 i was having lots of fun in january. tons of parties! tons of snowboarding! lots of going out to the bar! here are some photos from the shenanigans:
in 2006 i hung out up at brighton (my local ski resort) a lot because my friends lived in a cabin up there. here are some photos from that..
and i had fun hanging out with high school friends..
wow i don’t even remember 2005! ha. here are some photos from january 2005 that i dug up..
SO long ago! and my hair was WAY long!!
well.. anything before 2005 was pre-digital. i am working on getting the oldies (but goodies!) scanned in for future flashback friday installments ;)
EVERYONE should go read deb’s flashback friday tribute to her momma. it is the best post ever.
did you participate in flashback friday? let me know and i will link back!
well kids.. i have to bail! 15 minutes before my friends arrive and i still have to get pretty!
i will be back tomorrow.. YAY.. saturday!
1. what is your favorite form of cardio? i have asked your favorite cardio MACHINE before.. but this question isn’t limited to machines.. i mean just your fave cardio in general.
2. what was your life like five years ago.. yep.. january of 2005? judging by the photos above.. i was drinking a lot of beer :P i was 21 years old and hanging out with the same lovely ladies.. dating a really lame guy who i really don’t care for at all anymore.. had a great dog (mable!) and, for the most part, was having fun being young. but to be honest.. i like my life better now days! growing up is not so bad!
