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.
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 🙂
The before of my favorite cupboard:
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!
