Happy Monday fitness friends! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. I went to a kickboxing class on Friday night, it was the first time I have worked out anywhere but home in over 2 years, that is hard to believe! It was a great class and really challenging, I woke up sore in places I haven't been sore in for a while. Then Saturday the hubby and I had a date night, which was nice and yesterday we had a family party for a few cousins of mine that were in town visiting. What did you do over the weekend? Do you stay active or take a few rest days?
Like I mentioned over last week, I have finally gotten back into my weight lifting groove. I got 6 days of workouts in and a day of rest. I was also able to keep my eating on track, and I feel like I am eating more normal after the whole IIFYM debacle. How was your week? Are you working on achieving some goals or are you in a maintenance phase?
Here is my week in review:
Tuesday- Kickboxing legs and abs
Wednesday- Back and shoulders and kickboxing legs
Thursday- kickboxing legs and yoga meltdown
Friday- Kickboxing class
Saturday: Legs and yoga meltdown
This week will look mostly like last week, except I will do my kickboxing class on Saturday morning and legs on Friday. I am looking forward to another great week. What do you have planned for your week in fitness?
My menu for this week is pretty simple, and since my hubby is doing a Biggest Loser competition at his gym, we will be making a lot of food so we have healthy eats on hand!
Chicken and veggies, baked potatoes or sweet potatoes
Salmon and Brussels sprouts
Mexican night- black beans, brown rice and ground beef with a salad
We always make extra to have leftovers for lunch.
Breakfast is usually Ezekiel Sprouted grain toast, eggs and fruit or oatmeal and eggs. I will probably make some peanut butter pancakes this week too. What is on your menu?
This morning I made oatmeal with honey crisp apples and walnuts. It was the perfect bowl of oatmeal for a chilly fall morning. It was filling and tasty and will keep me full and ready for my morning workout. I paired it with a ham (Applegate, nitrate free) and feta cheese omelet. The perfect meal to start my day. Here is the recipe for the oatmeal. It is delicious!
Honey Crisp Apple Walnut Oatmeal
1/2 fresh honey crisp apple
1/2 cup oatmeal, uncooked
1 cup water/milk or milk alternative
cinnamon to taste
1. Boil water or milk add oatmeal and simmer until water is absorbed
2. While oats are cooking chop up apple to small pieces
3. Place cooked oatmeal in a bowl, mix in apples, walnuts and cinnamon. Enjoy!
A few notes this week:
-I have added a testimonial page from some clients I have worked with.
-I have added a services page with some awesome online personal training packages.
Have a wonderful week! As always I would love to hear from you. If you have a topic you would like to read about or if you have any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
