Hey Hey Hey!!! How are yaaa, huh?! Well, apparently I’m feeling much better, either that or I’m throwing back the Vodka Cranberries, right? Ha, totally kidding! Well, over the past few days, if you live in or around my area (i.e. Hampton Roads), you’ve probably seen me huffing and puffing around town like the Big Bad Wolf!! No fear, I have no intention of blowing your house down! I’m amping my workouts back up and honestly, feeling waaay too cool for school! Yep, TOTALLY got a Fonzie vibe going on right now, but AYYY, get off my back, I don’t need yo eye rollin’! Hehe! No, honestly, real question: How many corny jokes can Kristin tell in a single post (i.e. this post)? Hmm…apparently lots! Hehe!
Well, let’s see, I’m back in the pool, back in the gym, and BTW, pumping iron like it’s my job! Um, yeah, like it’s my job! Ouch, I’m sore! Feels great to increase intensity! I did have a serious talk with myself, though aaand it went a little bit like this:
Self, NEVER will you ever ever EVER abandon your swim workouts AGAIN!! Your happiness hinges on it!! Without swimming, you’re simply NOT you!
I don’t know, it might sound a little cray cray, BUT in a weird way, I’m glad about Sunday, you know, that I didn’t hit my half marathon goal time. If I’m being completely honest with you (which I always am), I really did learn tons from that experience. I’ll share more this week, BUT now:
Monday: 70 minute weight workout (shoulders, chest, abs) + 30 minute treadmill walk (speed: 4.0-4.1) + 2,200 meter swim
Tuesday: 70 minute weight workout (biceps, triceps, abs) + 30 minute treadmill walk (speed: 4.0-4.1) + 3,250 meter swim
Wednesday: 30 minute easy recovery run (3.68 miles) + Bryan Kest yoga
I got another run + lots more swimming and lifting to round out the week before I pump up my running (oh and swimming) volume next week. I got this!
Now, moving on to my fave foods this week:
1} Chocolate Peanut Butter Powder (you can add to smoothies) + Diced & Fire Roasted Tomatoes (you can add to tacos, pastas, rice, etc.)
2} Power of seven Organic Juice Blend (you can mix with sparkling water or not…it’s so delicious!)
3} Rainbow’s end Trail Mix (you can eat when craving chocolate) + Goddess dressing (you can put on salads, pastas, raw vegetables, etc.) + Organic Sunflower seeds (you can eat raw or mix into salads, stews, oatmeal, etc.) +Trader Joe’s Towelettes (you can use on the go & at home)
4} Jalapeno Greek Yogurt Dip (you can eat every single minute for the rest of your life…OR try it on chips, raw veggies, and sandwiches)
5} Organic Frosted Toaster Pastries (Hello pumpkin) + Pumpkin Cornbread Croutons (you can eat on salads and in soups) + Chopped spinach (which I use in every single meal) + TruMoo chocolate milk (sooo good)
HAVE YOU TRIED THESE? ARE YOU HAVING A GOOD WEEK?
