I only wish you could see what I’m eating. I am so super bummed because my iphone has been acting really wonky since my butterfingers dropped it. I have been having a really hard time taking pictures/videos with it. I have to get it fixed. Anyway, what I am eating. I am eating a green monster mousse bowl. I was inspired from my post last week about Vitamix mousse recipes and tried to recreate my own style of mousse… green monster style.
Green Monster Mousse
1 frozen banana
1 cup baby spinach
2 oz full fat greek yogurt
1 tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
splash of almond milk if you like your mousse a little thinner.
1 tbsp nut butter
2 tbsp carob/cocoa powder
*First blend your banana and spinach, then add in all other ingredients. Blend until smooth and mousse-like consistency.
Mine tasted like a vanilla green monster mousse. I topped it with a little nut butter and about 1/4 cup of grape nuts. I need crunch. It was divine.
So, do you want to see what my client brought me today? She actually left the studio and came back to give it to me. Sweetheart.
Ummmm, yeah. Cookies ‘n Cream Ice Cream Cupcake….. I think? Aaaaaaammazing. I am waiting until tomorrow to eat it (half of it). Today is all about clean eating. Tomorrow will be too, but I want one more day of straight up health. ;)
I have been stretching a lot more after my workouts and my favorite way to do it is….
Propping my leg up on the treadmill when I am done. It really stretches out the hammies and calves. Then I take my whole leg, bend it and rest it on the side handles so I can relieve my butt and IT band. Thhhen I stretch my calves by hanging the heel of my foot off of the sides where you place your feet when you are not on the belt. Ugh, it hurts so good. If you have access to a treadmill, I highly recommend you to do this. It makes a world of a difference. My workouts have actually been pretty darn good and I believe some of it has to do with the stretching.
My workouts for this week:
Monday: 3 mile run and Fitness Mag Class
Tuesday: 3.5 mile run and 20 minutes playing on the rings, doing squats, sit ups, push ups and stretching.
Wednesday: Run 2.5 miles, 50 burpees and 50 box jumps
Thursday: 20 minutes on treadmill (10 minutes were sprints), 5 minutes of double unders (I broke a PR!), 5 minutes of T2B
Friday: Rest or Chrissy’s Class (tabatas)
Saturday: Fitness Mag Class
Sunday: Light Cardio or rest (depending on my Friday)
I am enjoying my workouts lately and like how they have no rhyme or reason. I do whateva I feel like and it’s nice not to have to stick to a training plan. Speaking of training. I am searching high and low for the next BAWS race/competition/adventure. I have been coming up with a few things, but nothing really strikes my fancy. Any thoughts?
I have been trying to take pictures of my meals, but sometimes my camera participates and sometimes not. The only thing I have documented is a chocolate berry bomb that was the bomb. (ha, I’m kidding…but it was good!)
Sorry this post was all over today. My thoughts are scrambled in my mind and I haven’t even shared with you a 1/4 of what I could. In due time and I hope that time is soon!
