For some reason I feel like I have so much information to relay to you all right now. I’m probably over exaggerating as usual ;D
Okay, so before I get to what I really want to talk about, I have a new smoothie recipe for you all. I understand I just had a blog post about fall and what I love about it and then I turn around and make a summer salad. Now I am turning around and making smoothie bowls. I’m obviously as indecisive as it gets but since I live in Florida and it is still warm, I have an excuse:)
Into the mix went:
- 1 Cup Almond Milk
- 1/2 Frozen Banana
- 1/4 Cup Frozen Mango
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Raspberries
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
It’s as easy as that. It was awesome. Topped with some granola and Quaker oatmeal squares.
My workout today was intervals on the treadmill and a lower body workout. I can’t tell you how long it has been since I last focused ONLY on my legs at the gym. I usually do a full UPPER body workout or I do a FULL BODY workout. My legs were craving some attention!
Quick Treadmill Interval Workout
|3-8:30||20 sec @ 9.0, 40 sec @ 4.5|
|10-20||20 sec @ 10.0, 60 sec @ 4.5|
I then walked for about 4 more minutes at 4.5 speed and a 12.0 incline. I finished 2.30 miles in total.
Lower Body Workout
Adapted from Fitnessista.
- Lunges (15 on each side)
- Jump Squats
- Calf Raises (15)
- Hip Thrusters (15)
- Jumping Lunges (30 seconds)
- Sumo Deadlift (15)
- One legged Deadlift (15 each leg)
I repeated this twice and upped my weight by 5 lbs. each time.
Already feelin’ it! I foam rolled once I got home:)
The other day at the store, I picked up a whole wheat pizza dough from the Publix Bakery and today was the last day we could use it before it went bad.
Homemade pizza was on the agenda for tonight!
I LOVED pizza when I was younger but as I grew older I pretty much stopped eating it because I thought it was too fattening. Ridiculous, I know. However, I love making pizza at home because you can put whatever you want on it and it comes out extra delicious to me!
Leftover chicken sausage
Spinach & Spices
Put into a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Now, if only I didn’t forget to spray the pan with cooking spray, it would’ve turned out perfect. I am still a natural blonde so yes I really did forget. It was still good even though some of the crust got stuck :)
Time for gossip girl and dancing with the stars!
Favorite show right now?
Do you make pizza at home?
Do you split up your strength workouts or do total body?
