It’s been a few weeks now since I’ve last recapped my workouts and eats, so here it is for this week.
To be completely honest I’ve been getting back on track this week. I spent a few days away last weekend visiting some friends and it totally threw me off my workouts. Isn’t it funny how a few days completely out of my routine throws you off so much?
I got home Saturday morning and pretty much went to bed right when I got home. There’s something about road trips that always seem to tire me out even though I’m just sitting in the car.
Thanks to the early bedtime the night before it wasn’t too hard to get to the gym on Sunday morning for a Group Power (aka Body Pump) class at my gym. It was a newer release for me so I was still getting the hang of it.
I attended another Group Power class. I still felt a bit uncoordinated, but definitely more comfortable with the new workout since I had done it a few times before.
Yoga at home. I was craving yoga but when I checked out the schedule there was a sub for one of my favorite classes. So instead of going to the studio I decided to do a practice on my own. I typically prefer to go to classes instead of practicing at home because there are way too many distractions, but I managed to get in a quick practice. It wasn’t long but it was exactly what I needed.
I spent 30 minutes on the elliptical doing some steady state cardio. It felt really good to get back to cardio and sweat. I listened to a playlist on Spotify (follow me for the workout playlists I share on Spotify) and the 30 minutes flew by.
I had plans to go into work early so that I could go to another Group Power class, but by the time I left work I just wasn’t feeling a workout. Instead I got a bunch of errands done and had a nap when I got home.
My plan for today is to get in another cardio session on the elliptical.
My meals definitely weren’t very exciting this week, but they were tasty and kept me satisfied.
I ate a bunch of shredded chicken this week. Not only was it super easy to make but it’s also full of protein. I’ve been trying to eat more protein so it’s an easy way for me to get more of it in without the fat that can come with some other protein sources.
I also had a leftover chorizo sausage that I barbecued. It was a bit spicier than I usually like, but it was still pretty good. I think just about everything tastes better on the barbecue.
Staying with the chicken theme I also made a batch of chicken salad this week. Adding mayo to just about anything makes it taste better, right? I’ve really been enjoying the bagged salads this week. They’re super easy and it’s nice to have some instant veggies to add to my meals.
Like I mentioned the other day, I’ve been eating taking advantage of all of the beef jerky samples that I was given last weekend. Needless to say it’ll last awhile!
