I know I know, it’s Tuesday today, but it’s Wednesday in an hour (in London anyway! ) so let’s roll with it!
What I Ate Wednesday: Breakfast and Post-Workout Snack Edition!
I got asked to do more breakfast and post-workout snack pics, so here you go!
Today I had my beloved banana oatbran pudding, with raisins and almond buttah
1/2 block tofu, 1/2 scoop tropical protein powder, milk, xanthan gum, pineapple and strawbs. SO good! I then added lots of raw oats which you HAVE to do to your smoothies, cos it makes it all doughy and mmmm….
Random, but that’s what I was feeling!
Best eat today though?
HH’s single serving brownie with extra PB and choc chips. HEAVEN
What I Worked Wednesday- Abs Edition!
Today I have an AB workout for you! Seriously, it’s a toughie! I’ve linked to the moves in case you don’t know what they are
15 minute Ab/Core Workout
- 30 secs Toe-Touches (holding medicine ball/weights)
- 1 minute Up-Down Plank
- 1 minute Russian Twists (with medicine ball/weights, and switch sides after 30 seconds)
- 1 minute Bicycle Crunches (30 secs fast, 30 secs slow)
- 1 minute Around-The-World plank (<—-KILLER!)
- 30 secs rest/collapse
Repeat twice more!
Seriously, if your abs aren’t BURNING after this, then you’re either doing it wrong or you have abs of STEEL! I don’t work my abs/core much except for the abs track in BodyPump, so this reaaally hurt! Feel free to collapse afterwards like I did!
P.S. That’s a recycled photo. I didn’t do my ab workout in the park- people think I’m crazy enough as it is!
And today I went to my first ever Body Balance class! Going to a new class each month was one of my goals for 2011, and I think I’m on track! So far, I’ve done spin, BodyCombat, yoga, Triple Challenge and now BodyBalance!
I LOVED it, but there was an abs section…OUCH!! I was in pain from yesterday’s workout beforehand, but now it hurts to breathe haha!
Bicep curls with a 1kg pack of raisins. Curl, munch, repeat. Make that your next strength training workout and thank me later when you have guns to rival Jillian’s, because she doesn’t know about this killer move.
Overnight Oats or Hot Oats? Overnight oats are nice after a hot workout, but hot oats are just so filling…so hot oats!!
Did you make any 2011 goals? How’re they going? Achieved some already woo! But really I’m just thankful I made the decision not to add ‘regularly wash hair’ to the list because I would’ve failed big time already.
Random Q: What is your weakest muscle group? Triceps. I don’t have any.
Have an AMAZING rest of the week friends!!
