Hi blog buds!
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Did Santa bring you something that you really wanted?
I am always a little sad when Christmas is over… but I have to admit that today it feels GREAT to start a fresh week with FRESH food after the carbfest of the holiday.
Hello green smoothie!
This one was extra delicious – maybe because I’ve been lacking in the veg department as of late!
8 oz water
3 ice cubes
1/3 small banana
big handful of red grapes
about an ounce of raw spinach
1/2 of a leftover orange
3/4 scoop of brown rice protein powder
Perfectly sweet. I feel better already!
On the DDSD front, Christmas Day MSP and I did a 40 minute Tabata workout with a lot of static moves and it kicked our butts! We are still a little sore today. Lots of planks, side planks, hamstring bridges, calf raises, temple squats, dumbbell rows, lat pulldowns, lunges. I love to get in a really solid workout on a day I know I’ll be eating richer-than-usual food. Truly though, I’ve eaten more sweets between October and now than I think I have in the last 2 years combined. It’s kind of ridiculous.
Then yesterday, it was a beautiful 55 degrees here in Denver (boy we seem to be the lucky spot in the country right now!) so we took a good long walk with the dogs and soaked up some sunshine. We’re not sure what’s on tap yet for today. Possibly a little Wii Zumba?
I’ve been seeing your DDSD activity coming through my email! Keep it up! Julie, Cindy, Joan and Jen seem to be going really strong! Keep it up ladies! I’m so proud of you!
Is it back to work this week or do you have more time off for the holidays? I am still on my break from school, but I do have some training clients this week. And while I have most of my homework done, I do still have some prep work to do for my first demo that I give when we return. Plus I’m trying to catch up on some of the school reading that I’ve been behind on as well. So it’s kind of half-and-half for me this week.
