have i mentioned how starving those work out videos make me..
i believed for so long that cardio served as a workout….well yes cardio is an important part to be factored into to your workout and to remain just one element- the other element is putting those muscle groups to work!
i was also a non believer in workout videos, i never thought that i could get a well rounded workout from them and feel satisfied at the end of them- but this was all from assumption..and i was very wrong.
not only have i noticed the burn! the pain, feeling soar, but my normal eating habits just dont cut it!
anyhow, they work for me, and i really enjoy them 🙂
- fage 0%
- 1/2 grapefruit
- 1/2 mango
- tbls honey almond butter
- 1/4 cup natures path all bran
- delicious 😉
ps- i ❤ mango lately….not only is it completely satisfying, full of vitamins b, c and e, beta carotene, potassium and magnesiem and even said to have a lot of tryptophan- increases seritonin- but they are so beautiful!
.. did i sell you up there??
alice and i had some girl time in the sun.
it was a beautiful hike after all of the rain that l.a. had on sunday with a lovely breeze to cool us down from the sweet hot sun:
after my hike i attempted to make a green smoothie with the rest of my morning fruit, vanilla whey, spinach, spiroline, and raw honey….i failed ! it was awful.. i maybe drank half….no bueno.
later i had a carrot dipped in almond butter….first time….its a good snack!
i made hibiscus sun tea- it is truly incredible.
it almost tastes like a less tart cranberry juice but has a deep flavor to it at the end.
also known as –Jamaica–
- hibiscus flowers (dried)
we had the the yummiest dinner!
sauteed veggies over greens:
and i had a spread of bread and cheese, ryan had a trader joes andoulie sausage-hot dog style.
we watched due date- it was decent.. not as great as i had hoped, but i got a few laughs out.
we had trader joes chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels that my cousin got me started on….
have you tried…..they are ridiculous..so good!
we cuddled..alice was creepin into our photo:
