A reader asked me if I have a heart rate monitor. She was referring to the post I did HERE where I talked about the importance of Heart Rate. YES! I have a Heart Rate Monitor and LOVE it so much! I got it for Hannukah this past year and don't know how I ever worked out without one!
Sorry for the blurry pic! This was my Run this morning. You can change the 'sport' from running to biking to general depending on what your activity is which I love! There is a little chip that I wear on my shoe which is how it tracks miles ran. Awesome for outdoor running!
And it tracks my HR. As you can see my average was 156 and max was 176. This is around what I usually hit for my runs. Oh by the way this is a Garmin FR60 model
After my run it was breakfast time for this foodie! I refueled right away with 3 eggwhites, then about an hour later I feasted on this bowl
1/2 C oats, few banana slices, cranberries, Barney Butter (my last packet!) this stuff is CRACK!
Few hours later (around 11:15am) Fuuuuji!
ughh one of my not so favorite things--the little paper thing on top of the Fage greek yog's. Thereis always a pool of 'juice' on top of the parchment and I always have to dump out a few tsps of excess h20. Oh well, it is worth it for this creamy treat!! It was eaten with ~1/4 C Kashi Go Lean
Lunch featured these wraps I picked up at BJ's yesterday! SCORE!
3oz Roasted chicken breast, romaine, red onion, garlic and herb LC, cranberry chutney from TJ's. I grilled this sucker up on the stove top!
The innards. Delish! I housed this wrap like I have never seen food before
WIth salad on the side. Butter lettuce, carrot chips, cuke, tomatoes, red pepper, rosemary greek dressing.
Today featured another workout sesh-just weight training with my Trainer. Every Monday I meet with him. He kills.me. Okay, not really but he is so tough and I love challenging myself with his workouts. We are working on lots of core work trying to active my transverse Abdominis which in lay persons terms is the lower abs---HELLO DECLINE LEG LIFTS!
Came home and made a post workout protein shake. I got a chocolate and vanilla sample from Biochem (sorry for the chipped nail polish)
With 1/2 C unsweetened chocolate almond breeze, 1/2 C skim milk, ice, water and Biochem Packet. Topped with 3/4 C Kashi Puffs for those High GI carbs post workout! You must try this! It was like a thick frothy milk shake!
well my loves, this was short but sweet today! I am about to make some dinner and continue packing for my big move this weekend! My posts may be somewhat sporadic this week and I apologize for that, but I need to get lots of packing/organizing done...you all know how that goes right?
- This is a BIG CHANGE for me, but one which I will stay happy and positive throughout. Yes it will change my 'routine' , I have to change gyms, change my commute to work, yadda yadda and take me out of my comfort zone because I am a creature of habit-but I know this will be good for me and I will have so much fun and really shows that I am becoming more independent. I am looking at all of the positives and just focusing on that! I know after a week or so, I will Love it!
What is the biggest change that you have gone through/Experienced?
What do you usually eat post workout?
Favorite type of green veggie?
PEACE AND LOVE
