The humidity in the air has finally broke, thanks to that crazy storm we had yesterday.
I mean, I love a good thunderstorm, but I could do without golf ball sized hail and 300-500 bolts of lightning per minute, which is what we experienced North of Boston.
It was intense, and left my street flooded all afternoon.
Luckily today was a huge improvement,winning the award for;
“Most Improved Weather”.
I started my morning off with a cup of hot water with lemon before drinking my usual coffee.
We wake in a state of dehydration, so drinking water first thing is very important. It jump starts your metabolism, and helps your body prepare for the day ahead.
And this particular combination is very cleansing as well.
Breakfast was a Blueberry Muffin Cake, eaten cool from the fridge.
- 2 Tbsp Organic Coconut Flour
- 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 2 drop liquid Stevia
- 3/4 cup Liquid All Whites
- 1/2 thinly sliced banana
- 1/3 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup water
I had planned on an arm workout yesterday, but due to flooding and traffic jams, I switched it to today.
Slow and controlled, focus on your breathing and correct form
- Assisted Dips: 4×10
- Assisted Pull ups: 4×10
- Tricep Cable Pushdown with rope: 3×12
- Bicep Cable Curl with rope : 3×12
- Inner Bicep Curl: 3×12
- Overhead Tricep Extension: 3×12
-Ending with a 15 minute jog on the treadmill and some stretching.
Post Workout Sweet Potato Protein Boat
Sweet potato topped with Sunwarrior Protein Spread : (1 scoop Vanilla Sunwarrior Protein Powder ,cinnamon, & water added slowly)
Along with some Michael Buble on Pandora Radio
Always a thumbs up in my book.
