oh, HELL(en)! that was yesterday’s workout, or more accurately it’s called “helen”. a crossfit concoction of:
today’s workout: (ah) pilates. i happily popped out of bed looking forward to a limb-lengthening session on the reformer, which my body was craving after 4 days of kickstarting it (after idling on low for about 5 months)! my oh-so-pregnant (and cute) pilates instructor, and dear friend, erica had a different plan…which did not include the word “relaxing”. with my legs, back, shoulders, and yes, even core aching from this week’s workouts, there was no mercy on her part (which i love). let’s just say my legs were quivering through most of the exercises, my push-ups were on the verge of pathetic, and core? yeah, i may not be able to roll out of bed tomorrow if my little abdominals don’t get some major r&r today. i so earned my coffee afterward.
the zone/block plan is spot on people…here’s a glimpse into my meals yesterday so you can keep grasping what this zone/block plan is all about. again, i’m on a 10-block plan…and i’ll indicate below what each meal is:
pre-workout: 1/2 protein shake with 1/4c milk, 1/4c water & 1/2 scoop protein powder (1 block)
breakfast: 1/3c oatmeal with 1/2c milk, 1/2c strawberries, 1tbsp walnuts; coffee w/2tbsp cream (2 blocks)
snack: 1/4c cottage cheese, 1/2 orange, 6 nuts (1 block)
lunch: baby spinach & tomato salad with 3oz ground turkey, 2tbsp avocado & 1tbsp galeo’s dressing (2 blocks)
snack: hardboiled egg, 1/2 orange, 5 nuts (1 block)
dinner: 1 egg, 1/4c beans, 1oz cheese, corn tortilla (2 blocks)
not an ideal dinner in that i should have had lots of veggies instead of the corn tortila, but i worked really really late and this was easy to make really quick and run back to the office…better than grabbing drive-thru right?
snack: 1/4c greek yogurt with 1/2c frozen pineapple sprinked w/peanuts (1 block)
disclaimer: i fully intended on having my treat meal last night, however i got off work too late and golden spoon was closed (tragic) so i made this homemade fro-yo instead!
check back tomorrow for week 2′s workouts! now, back to work…business planning, forecasting, budgeting, & cash flowin’…oh yay!
