7-7-7

11 Jan

After starting the day with a quite un-happy case of the Mondays (likely due to the fact that I woke up 1 1/2 hours late), the day is ending on a happy note.

I attempted to cheer myself up in the AM with a mug full of banana – wheat germ – dark chocolate cocoa powder – peanut butter oats.

It helped 😉

I knew the one thing that would really get me feeling great, and is always a good de-stresser = a good hard workout

Knowing that I got on it right when I got home from work.

The 7-7-7 did the trick.

What’s that you’re wondering??

7 minute warm up run to a nearby track

7 minutes of HIIT (20 second sprint – 40 second walk/jog)

7 minutes cool down run back home

It was just what the doctor ordered!

After some stretching I also did my sit ups for the challenge. We’re in week 2 now!

For dinner I made some black bean patties (black beans, onion, spinach, garlic, corn, ground flax seed, egg whites and spices), avocado cream, salad with mushroom, tons of tomato and salsa and a treat of mango on the side.  The patties turned out a bit dry which is strange because they were super wet pre-cooking.

Oh well… at least they had good flavor 🙂

So on Sunday I did get the fridge and cupboards cleaned and organized!

The before of my favorite cupboard:

And the after:

I got some good use out my mom’s labeler and filled up many many jars with beans, flours, grains, nuts, dried fruits and other yummy things.

I was pretty proud of my work in the kitchen 🙂

Today’s move of the day is the singe leg squat.  It’s a bit more intense than a regular squat.  Hope you enjoy it!
