Today’s Meals, Moves, and More

Well I’m about ready to faceplant.

But first:

Today’s Meals

  • Breakfast:  Non-fat plain Greek yogurt from Trader Joe’s with pumpkin granola, sliced apple, and blueberries
  • Morning Snack:  Sliced banana with almond butter
  • Lunch:  Leftover eggplant & chickpea salad with a whole wheat pita
  • Afternoon Snack #1:  Apple
  • Afternoon Snack #2:  TLC 7 grain crackers
  • Dinner:  Round 2 of leftover eggplant & chickpea salad.  I’m boring today and had the same meal twice!

Today’s Moves

Unfortunately, I either have to opt completely out of or really modify Kix classes for a few weeks.  Doctor’s orders.  I gotta give my shoulder a break from so much jabbing.  I drove to the gym with the intention of getting on an elliptical for another machine workout (I did one yesterday morning too), but I got grumpy just thinking about it and just went to Kix at the last minute instead.  I was late so I didn’t have my usual spot up front and having to modify just made me grumpy all over again.  Lose lose.  It was a great class, I just hate not being able to do all of it the way I want to do it.

…I start physical therapy next Friday.

Here’s the workout from my Circuit Training class that I taught after Kix.  I didn’t go into the details of how to do each of these in this post, so if there are any questions about any of the moves, please let me know!  Of course if you are just starting a new fitness routine you should consult with your doctor first.

  2. Loving all the delicious recipe posts! Here’s one in return. My favorite Sangria recipe… a lighter spin to some of the more caloric-filled recipes, and it’s DELICIOUS!
    (Makes 6 servings)
    1/2 cup rum
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate
    1/3 cup OJ, (I use Tropicana’s 50% less sugar & calories, and it doesn’t compromise the taste at all)
    1 (750 milliliter) bottle of dry red wine
    1/2 cup peach schnapps
    2 cups diet ginger ale
    Fruit: I stick with one cut up apple (bite sized pieces, I hate using a fork with my drink), sliced orange rounds, raspberries, blueberries and maybe some pineapple or strawberries if you’re feeling frisky 😉

    In a large pitcher or bowl, mix together the rum, lemon juice, lemonade concentrate, orange juice, red wine, and peach schnapps. Float fruit into mixture. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor. (Although, I always forget to prepare overnight and it’s still really good). Add diet ginger ale just before serving.

    Most recipes call for added sugar or non-diet juice/ soda options that really rack up the calories. I serve this recipe at parties all the time and no one would ever guess any substitutes were used.
    Enjoy!!
