Yesterday when I left work I stopped to grab a green juice for the ride home. I attempted to make my own flavor by requesting kale, celery, lemon and ginger. I wasn’t as good as the cool cucumber, but it was very refreshing on such a warm day!My morning workout was light and got cut short so I made sure to pack a gym bag so I could get in a nice workout before heading home. Thanks goodness for the energy I got from the green juice! I got in an awesome 35 minute workout
This was another early evening workout. I definitely prefer morning workouts, but I did like the extra energy I had in the afternoon.
The gym was packed so I quickly tried to create my own little station where I could complete:
- Weighted Lunges
- Curtsey Lunges
- One-armed DB Snatches
- Burpee to Pull-ups
- Overhead Plate Lunges
- Floor to Overhead Press w/ plate
And a few other exercises that I didn’t have much time for. These moves got my heart rate up and I didn’t take many breaks.
The gym continued to fill and my stomach started to growl so I headed home to make a loaded salad.I started with a base of my favorite green – spinach!Then I added some steamed carrotsA tablespoon or two of my mom’s quinoa salad (quinoa, black beans, corn, red peppers) along with a crumbled veggie burger.Finally I topped this masterpiece with some sriracha sauce to heat things up!It was delicious and came together in a flash!
Perfect post-workout dinner. Super satisfying and filled with different textures. Happy Tuesday!
