Happy Saturday, everyone! This is one of my favorite days of the week. Next to football Sundays of course. But alas, it is not football season unfortunately. I am currently watching the Bruins game so I apologize in advance if this post seems erratic in any way. The refs might as well have their helmets on backwards, they are calling the most ridiculous penalties right now.
I started off my morning with one of my favorite meals. I am still waiting for my protein powder to come in so this morning I started off with Mixed Berry Oatmeal. 1/4 cup oat bran and rolled oats cooked with 1.25 cups of water till the liquid is absorbed. Added 2 tbsp of wheat germ, 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds, blueberries, and sliced strawberries. On top I added some chia seeds and unsweetened shredded coconut. On the side I had the usual suspect of 4 egg whites and salsa.
After breakfast I went to the gym to focus on a problem area of mine, triceps. I know there is no such thing as spot training, but I would like to tighten up that muscle as much as I can while I work on burning the fat over it. 🙂 I also did 20 minutes on the elliptical incorporating 5 minutes of HIIT at the end for a little cross training action during this running plan.
Overhead Triceps Press 3×15
Close Grip Bench Press 3×20
Bent Over Triceps Kickbacks 3×15
Triceps Cable Rope Pulldown 3×15
Triceps Cable Rope Overhead 3×12
Since I am still missing my protein powder I made a smoothie today that was epic even without it. I used plain Oikos Greek yogurt to get in that protein, a cup of almond milk, some frozen strawberries and raspberries (organic unsweetened), and a frozen banana. It was sooooo creamy and delicious. I am rockin’ these smoothies lately.
For lunch, I had to usual salad beast with turkey. I would post my dinner for later, but it’s just leftovers from yesterday. Nothing exciting this weekend. I am trying to figure out how to start this term paper, but unfortunately my procrastination is getting the best of me. How am I supposed to concentrate when there happens to be a game on tv? Let alone, a playoff game. 😉 Yes, I am a tomboy… Yes, I know it’s not normal for a girl to like sports as much as I do haha.
I’m not sure why all my pictures are so dark! I apologize, it was actually really sunny and nice out today. I really need to invest in that camera. 😉 How did you all like my guest post? She’s awesome right?
