A beautiful, balmy winter day here in the heart of the new west. The weekend is over, the week has begun and I need clean fuel and a body-load of oxygen to get me past this intense week. So here goes:
500am: 45 min cardio pilates
700am: 6egg whites, 1/4 red pepper, 1 c spinach omlette, 1/4c creamy rice cereal, 1Tbsp craisins, 1Tbsp coconut oil, 2T salba, 2T ground flax seeds, 2c mate tea
900-930am: 30 min telliptical cardio routine- starting at resistance level 2, increase your resistance every minute up to level 8, then lower back to 2 and repeat for as many intervals as you have time for
1000am: 3oz chicken breast, 1/2c brown rice, 1 organic gala apple (small)
1230pm: 1.5c turkey vegetable soup
330pm: (planned) 6oz baby organic carrots, 1 small can Ocean's flavoured tuna in my fave flavour- Peanut Satay!
630pm: (planned) 3oz tuna, 1c salad greens, 1/2 tomato, 1/4 bell pepper and 2Tbsp vinaigrette
When you find yourself facing a daunting task or intense work week, what do you to do constructively prepare for it? Often times we choose to let our fitness and healthy eating go aside and let the 'stuff' of the day and week fill it in- this results in a drain of energy and negative feelings about the tasks at hand.
