Coffee was my friend today
I’m still exhausted from my crazy weekend, but the show must go on!
Chobani, blueberries, almond butter and Kashi with cinnamon
While I was away, knowing that my eating and drinking was not going to be the best, I made sure to fit in a workout 2 out of the 3 days I was there.
No one was ever in the tiny fitness center at the campground, so this made it easy for me to bang out a workout before the day got started.
Oh, by the way, I walked into the hard corner of Matt’s suitcase on Thursday night, TWICE, and semi broke my pinky toe on .
So what did that mean? Besides the fact that I’m a genius…
Tape it up, suck it up, ice it up, and go!
Then throw on flip flops because sneakers hurt like hell
On Friday, I completed my 500 Rockin’ Reps routine, followed by 10 minutes of HIIT on the treadmill to keep my metabolism roaring throughout the afternoon.
Since Saturday morning was accompanied by a hangover, I did a moderate 45 minutes on the elliptical, with some stretching to help ease the pain.
Tons of water, frozen grapes, and peanut butter covered rice cakes, and I emerged a new woman ready for round two!
As far as healthy snacks go, I did bring along some Greek yogurt, almonds, fruit and raw vegetables, but when Nutella, Oreos, and S’mores are involved…They clearly win the battle over campfire snacking.
baby carrots and apples vs. a s’more…not even a contest.
This is why balance is so important.
Taste what you want to taste, make yourself a cocktail, eat what is being barbecued, and go on with your workout as you normally would the following morning.
You don’t eat like this all of the time, so pour yourself a glass (or solo cup) of Sauvignon Blanc and enjoy it!
There is always tomorrow, but live for today.
I’m off to ice my foot.
