Wow! It has been awhile. Something new is coming. I will let you know once all has been planned.
Since Dino and I don’t get to work out together during the week, I am trying to start a Saturday ritual where we go running through the trails together, then stop by an Einstein Bagel or a smoothie joint for breakfast. So far we’ve done it two Saturdays in a row, SCORE!
Bubba’s game face and bright yellow shirt, can you tell we’re from Miami
Game face #1
Game face #2 (The same as #1) Plato is ready too!
Plato’s pre-run pee
Plato leading the pack
Still got the game face on
Im not sure what this building is, but I know it is known for its beautiful gardens, and the flowers match my outfit!
No more game face
We had a quick smoothie since we were going to eat lunch in a couple of hours. The run was great and it was a great start to our day.
Do you have a Saturday morning ritual?
Before the weekend I try to up my workout intensity, because I know when the weekend comes along, so does all the restaurant hopping. I decided to combine my weight training day with a circuit training routine to kick my butt in gear.

Nothing like a pre-weekend workout to get your juices flowing!
Let’s see what the weekend brings!!!!
Go to the gym at least 4 times this week: FAILED (It was that time of the month and it was hard to get motivated to do anything)
Do P90x Yoga at least one day: FAILED
Stretch out after each workout: DONE!!!! YAYA!!!
Nutrition was not a goal for this week, however for this week it is going to be a major focus. I had a few days off from work and I took full advantage of the dinner dates with my hubby. We went out to eat Thursday, Friday, Saturday and had a huge brunch Sunday for Mothers Day. As you can see I did not say night after each day because we pretty much ate out for all meals except breakfast, UGH!
So what are my goals for this upcoming week?
Go to the gym at least 5 times this week
Eat clean (eat out one night and no cheating during week (cheating is random eating and nibbling on sweets)
Stretch out after each workout
Weights 3x this week & Nike Training 2x this week + cardio all five days
What are your goals this week?
Nectar Sweets Whey Protein
8 oz water
handful of strawberries
tablespoon of blueberries
1/2c 3/4c ice
Protein is a great supplement to incorporate into your post-workout drink, that many forget to do. Consuming protein after exercise will help repair muscles used during exercise and assist in providing a more lean physique.
This is just one way to make an AWESOME smoothie. There are so many ways to make a yummy smoothie that it is impossible to ever get bored.
What are some of your favorite smoothie recipes?
