Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday!
Normally on Wednesdays I stick to my What I Plan To Eat Wednesdays, but today I’m going to add in my Tone It Up Check-in!
On the TIU Nutrition Plan, Katrina & Karena encourage everyone to check-in for accountability whether on the community, facebook and/or twitter.
As silly as it may sound, checking-in and blogging is pretty time-consuming, so today I’m going to try blogging my check-in and then linking it to the community as a check-in. I like being efficient ;)
So here it goes …
TIU Booty Call: 41 minute tempo run: incline 1, 5 minutes warm-up, 3 miles at 10:10 pace (25 seconds slower than my 5K pace) and a 5 minute cool down.
M1: 2 egg whites, 1 whole egg & 1 gigantic apple.
For real, it was huge. The size of my fist huge.
I couldn’t even finish it, it was that huge.
M2: orange & chocolate muscle milk
M3: banana & 2 (one is already at work because I brought it as a snack option earlier this week) collard green turkey wraps
M4: 1 cup of carrots & pineapple coconut water
PM Toning: 30 minutes toning my legs & upper body.
On the agenda: split squats, pistol squat, sumo squats, 3 way lunge, single leg dead lift & hamstring curl on the stability ball.
… I better be sore tomorrow!!
M5: roasted brussels sprouts (thanks dad for the 3 cartons!!!) & 3.5 oz of a grass-fed beef burger from Whole Foods.
This was also last night’s dinner. Can’t wait to repeat it tonight!! I’m already drooling over it!! ;)
And if you liked looking at my eats, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what other bloggers are chowing down on AND snacking on!
What have you been eating lately?
Are you a fan of red meat?
When you tone/strengthen, do you like to make yourself sore?
P.S. Have you entered my almond flour giveaway yet?!?!?
