I woke up this morning at 7:30, drank an MRM sugar free pre-workout and hit the ground running.
Today’s work out consisted of arms, abs and a 30 minute HIIT treadmill workout. It was a definite butt kicker. I HATE V ups and of course “abs” consisted of v ups. I just kept remaining myself that it was only 15 (3 sets). Anyway, after weights I hopped on the treadmill and did roughly 3 miles. I started out running at about 6 mph for 2 minutes, bumped it up to 8 mph for 1.5 minutes, then walked for 30
seconds. I did this 4 times then threw in a hill for good measure. What a workout!
I then finished up with my protein coffee shake (coffee, protein, a little milk… Bam, you have yourself an amazing shake with a little caffeine kick) and my usual banana.
A few hours later it was time for what I like to call “2nd breakfast”. Which is a repeat of yesterday’s breakfast, but I added a little peanut butter to the oatmeal (to keep me full until we eat Christmas dinner) and threw on some avocado to my egg whites. Once again, my 2nd breakfast is a winner.
Here is a pic of my beautiful whole grain oatmeal with pb:
As I am posting this, I am in the car with my parents driving to my Aunt’s house to celebrate Christmas with my family. I brought by own dinner and a few of Jamie Eason’s chocolate protein bats for dessert.
No excuses to not eat clean. The holidays are NOT about stuffing yourself with crap food… It’s about spending time with family and celebrating the birth of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. I think we should all stop looking it as an excuse to pig out. 🙂 Just my thoughts.
