I woke up bright and early this morning to hit the gym before going off to see a client. Since it's March Break, I don't have to spend my early mornings at the before school program. Hooray! Before I went to the gym, I had a glass of Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness as a bit of preworkout fuel.
At the gym, I decided to focus on cardio and core. I started off with an interval workout on the treadmill. First, I warmed up with a 5 minute brisk walk. Then, I alternated between two minute sprint intervals and two minute speed walking hill intervals for 20 minutes. When I was finished, I cooled down with 5 more minutes of walking.
As for core, I focused on doing a lot of full core exercises, such as standing oblique crunches...
...standing oblique twists...
...and more! Those were my two favourites by far.
After my workout, I made a quick protein shake to drink on my way to work. I blended up a scoop of instant coffee, a cup of unsweetened almond milk, two cups of baby spinach, a scoop of chocolate protein powder and a squirt of agave nectar.
After a relatively short shift today, I was able to eat lunch at home. I made a buffalo chicken wrap using a whole wheat tortilla, lettuce mix with carrots and red cabbage, grilled chicken breast and buffalo sauce.
I forgot to take a photograph of dinner, but tonight I just snacked on some baked rice crackers with hummus, a salad, and a fig bar. Nothing too exciting!
I spent the rest of the evening watching television and catching up on paperwork that I had let slide during my busy work weeks. I'm really looking forward to working less this week and catching up on everything in my life, including spending some quality much-needed "me time"!
