Day 3 ! Early Rise & Grind

44c7b99f-a3da-41dd-8721-5bd3dbc9e286wallpaperHelllooo everyone, today was an EARLY day. I’m currently at work just waiting for the next transport. I was up around 4:30AM, got to work 5:15AM and now it’s 8:20AM lol… BORING, but hey… we gotta do, what we gotta doooo!

photo-3Well, after our first transport I ordered an Ice Coffee with Cream & Sugar (yikes!). I was too afraid to go black because I wasn’t sure if i’d like it or not. I like hot black coffee though. Eh whatever, I can’t wait for breakfast though, i’m starving! I’m thinking egg whites with tomato, lettuce and mozzarella on multigrain toast. ahhh excited!

So today is, I believe Cardio & Resistance training for INSANITY. I’m going straight to doing that afterwork. Woop woop! Then I’m feeling sushi later with my sister and her boyfriend. Ah man, can NEVER go wrong with sushi… and then dinner is just gonna be a protein shake.

proteinThis is what I have, it’s actually pretty tasty. If I use it as a meal replacement like I will today, than I add 8oz of low fat milk and 1 scoop of protein powder, if it’s a snack/post-workout drink then I just use water with 2 scoops of protein powder. And my favorite bottle ever! The Blender Bottle! Best investment ever! :]

Well, I really have nothing else to talk about… Today is just an early day. Oh, but I do have a healthy recipe to share! I think I’m going to make a batch tonight to eat tomorrow and friday for lunch :] Try it out!
Quinoa Turkey With Feta and Sundried Tomatoes
Cook quinoa as per packet instructions. Make turkey burgers with turkey minced, diced onions and garlic, freshly chopped parsley and coriander, cumin, salt and pepper. Drizzle the olive oil from marinated feta and olive jars over the quinoa and break up the turkey burgers, combining them with the quinoa. Add lemon juice and combine sundried tomatoes and olives.

*I got this off instagram, i follow healthy eats or something like that. It sounds good, but we’ll see.

Have a great day everyone! and if you got awesome recipes, PLEASE PLEASE SHARE

 

how amazing is this meal!?

It’s like a cup a half of string beans and broccoli, and of course sautéed in olive oil and salt! (no joke, I do that with ALL my veggies now) 1/2 cup of black beans and six pieces of shrimp! SOO GOOOD

i also had a lot of bruchetta (i think i spelled it right) and some chocolate.. lol.. but that’s pretty much all i ate today… and 3 beers i think.. or 2… not sure.

But I overall, pretty good day.. i wasn’t really hungry today so my only meal was that. No joke, SO SO delicious!

winding down my day :]

Well, today was good day ! Besides the fact that I only worked for 2 hours and made 15 bucks lol. So, I had time to go to the gym! I was really excited (There’s this really cute guy that works there and he had told me at school he’d be there ! haha, whatever, motivation right?). I decided to make today LEG DAY. 
So my gym experience looked like this:

Stretch
Leg Curls, 3 sets of 15
Leg Press, 3 sets
Leg Extension, 3 sets
Outer Thigh
Inner Thigh
Rotary Calf 
Seated Leg Press
Biking, 30 minutes

Not bad I think! I’m definitely going to be feeling this in the morning. :] 

So for my post-workout meal, i chose this:

Now, I’m not sure if these actually are healthy for you, but I figured 0 sugar, 20 g protein, gluten free and no crazy -ose’s in the ingredients, that this couldn’t be horrible for you. Tasted disgusting, BUT for now it did the job. 

I took a shower and relaxed, went out for a bit and by the time I came back, it was time to have an actual meal so I prepared THIS!

This is grilled chicken, avocado & cucumbers in a spinach wrap! It was pretty tasty and filling!
Well… kind of, the spinach wrap didn’t peak my interest. Maybe I’ll just do a whole wheat wrap next time, but anyway… 

I feel like today I was able to stick to the healthier side! I didn’t snack on junk, I didn’t eat the fresh pizza my brother made ( BUT OMG I WANTED TO ). 

I went off to barnes and noble to study and I guess the stress of studying made me start craving sugar. So, instead of denying myself I got the Banana Chocolate Smoothie with skim milk from starbucks. If you didn’t know, it’s made from protein based chocolate powder, fresh whole banana and skim milk! I had no regret drinking it and I was super satisfied. I studied away with my drink.

I’m now home, in bed @ 10:40pm. READY FOR SLEEP. I’m excited to wake up with soreness in my legs ! Can’t believe I’m actually saying that haha.

Today was a successful day and I’m very proud of myself! 
I took a photo at the gym that made me critique my self in the worst way:

MY ARMS ARE SO GROSS! i was like, ew, i don’t wanna post this. But then I looked beyond the arms, and saw that I was there at the gym, an hour in at this point, working hard, doing seated leg lifts. 

Today was great, I applaud myself, and I hope everyone else had a successful day too! 
Til tomorrow! 

Good night!
