friday workout and eating plan

Achieve Adventure Fluent The Business Barrier

Hey everyone! I hope your Friday is going well! Mine has been great! Hello, weekend!!!

Yesterday I woke up feeling pretty tired. I actually have had trouble sleeping for the past few night (no worries, I made up for it last night when I was in bed by 9am and slept like a baby). I had a pep in my step though because I was headed to my internship. I don’t write a lot about it, because I am not comfortable really sharing what I do there since I am working with High School kids and I like to maintain a little privacy about where I work and who I am working with. I am so appreciative of your respect and understanding of that. What I will say is that I am totally loving it. 🙂 My internship has proven to me that this is the absolute right profession for me to be in. Every morning when I walk into school I think to myself, “I can’t want until I graduate in May and then have this be my life everyday!”. Hopefully that is, if I get a counseling job right out of school. There are minimal jobs available at the beginning of each school year. I am optimistic. I will cross that bridge when I arrive at it.

Anyhow…breakfast was liquid. I had a LARGE coffee (lack of sleep) and a green smoothie. Caffeine and superfoods are the perfect sure for this sleepy girl.

The Green Smoothie:

  • Banana
  • Spinach
  • Flax seeds
  • Strawberries
  • Almond milk

Lunch was kind of thrown together from whatever pieces I could find. We are running low on groceries on the FFF household.

After school I worked on a freelance website development project I have been working on for the past week or so. At 6:30 I snacked on a mini peanut butter cookie Larabar as a pre-workout snack.

I went to the 7pm Crossfit class. I was a little nervous when I saw the workout because I knew it would be a lot of strain on my sprained ankle.

Here was the workout:

Warm-up:

  • 3 rounds
  • 10 squats
  • 10 good mornings
  • 10 jumping jacks
  • 20 second third world squats

Strength:

  • 5 back squats (65 pounds) – 3 sets
  • 3 back squats (85 pounds) – 3 sets
  • 1 back squats (100 pounds) – 3 sets – NEW BACK SQUAT MAX! Woooooo hoooooooo!

Metcon:

4 rounds:

  • 25 four count flutter kicks
  • 250 meter row
  • 5 pistols right side
  • 5 pistols left side
  • 25 back extensions (25 lbs.)

First thing, I was so excited to have a new max of 100 pounds!!! I felt like Wonder Woman! I did the pistols on the right side assisted because I didn’t want to push my ankle too hard after I pushed it weight-wise with the squats. The workout was super fun! I am starting to realize I really, really rowing on the rowing machine. I am glad that Crossfit forced me to try the rowing machine because I have seen it at the gym for years and never really knew how to use it or thought I would like it.

Dinner was simple. I didn’t really feel like cooking (I wanted to watch American Horror Story 😉 )and Adam felt like eggs. I had a veggie bacon, egg whites and cheese sandwich on a whole wheat sandwich thin with apple sauce on the side.

This is my new fav plan, the lean belly breakthrough. It’s all about getting those last few inches off your belly and it works wonders. We all know that’s the hardest part, but no matter how many inches you need to get rid of this plan has you covered. Click here to check it out.
