Fitness Friday: Spinach, Peppers, Carrots, Oh My!

Happy Friday [and HAPPY SNOW DAY! if it applies]DSC_0008

We sure did get a lot of snow over here, so I’m doing the usual snow day things.  Movies, eating comfort food like chili and corn bread, going sledding (HOPEFULLY), oh..and I slept for 13 hours 🙂

Besides comfort food, colorful VEGETABLES have made their way back into my life!  My family eats a lot of vegetables, but nothing like the way I do at school, so I took matters into my own hands and stocked up on:

  • spinach
  • snow peas
  • red peppers
  • baby carrots
  • leeks
  • apples
  • bananas
  • cucumbers
  • lettuce

All of that will probably be gone very shortly, but for now, it’s making some delicious meals to fuel my workouts.DSC_0002

Spinach, peppers, carrots, pumpkin, cucumber- dressed with olive oil, honey, S & P.  On the side:  brown rice with corn and an omelet with Laughing Cow Swiss Cheese and Cheddar Cheese.

So good and so missed.

And for the workouts from this past week:

Saturday: None.  We were in New York.

Sunday:  Rest.

Monday:  3 mile run, shoulders + abs.

Tuesday: 5 mile run with Russ.  Last workout of 2013 and it was a good one!

Wednesday:  10 minutes on the elliptical and 24 minute run outside + triceps + abs.

Thursday:  10 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes of incline walking (5 forward, 5 reverse), 15 minutes of jogging and sprint intervals on the treadmill + biceps + abs

Friday: 40 minutes of shoveling [heavy] snow and I plan to do a circuit workout in the living room + abs.

That’s all, folks.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I don’t have any grand plans for this weekend, but I do want to make these babies.  Mmmmmmm…carmelitastextHave a great weekend 🙂
