well, the weekend wasn’t great with my food. i was a little hungover on saturday, to be honest. and the weather started changing. my head was pounding. a little aleve and a lot of sleep helped. so saturday was a complete waste. but sunday was better. i went food shopping for the week. more of the same from last week… grilled chicken, veggies, fruit, brown rice, a little greek yogurt and kefir, fish, almonds, eggs, etc. so “mostly clean”. i just can’t bring myself to go full paleo. no offense to anyone who does it and i know it has a lot of health benefits, but i just don’t think it’s my thing. i like dairy. a fresh glass of organic milk is so delicious. and i’m so not against some yogurt and cheese every once in awhile.
so anyway… sunday’s workout was great and i got back on track with my food. i tried that fitness blender one from last saturday. i just love that workout. the segments are just short enough to keep me interested but long enough to really push me.
i think i’ve grown to actually like fitness blender more now. i think it’s because i figured out that i could just play music from my iTunes in the background while the workout is playing too. i don’t know why it took me so long to figure that out. i NEED my tunes. (or someone yelling at me like jillian michaels.) both work in their own way. the guy that narrates the fitness blender videos, his voice is just so…soothing. i can’t handle that. it makes me want to turn it off. but with eminem or pitbull in the background…that works!
i tried this video this week. can we say “brutal”? but it’s a good one!
