Anatomy Shmatomy!

Hey there! How's everyone doing? I'm pretty great today besides my arms being pretty shaky! I went to a spin and core class this morning. Really kicked my ass! Before class I warmed up with 15 minutes on the ET. I burned 150 cals. Then we did 30 minutes of spin where I burned about 250 cals. Then came the insanely hard part!! We did a core class where he made us do like 5500000 versions of the plank and push ups!! Ok.... I'm exaggerating on the 5500000... but it was hard!! Definetely need to work on my arms to keep up with his class! We also did crunches and moves for our butts! I think I'll be sore tomorrow but I'm still planning on going to the spin and weights class in the AM. After the gym I came home showered and had some breakfast. Which was really lunch cause it was almost 11. Breakfast was just as delicious today as it was yesterday!
Pineapples, blackberries, strawberries and baked banana oatmeal; all drizzled with agave nectar!

The rest of my afternoon was pretty boring because I spent it studying. Soooo much reading to do!! And the reading isn't really interesting! I find myself having to read one paragraph 2 or 3 times until I'm actually paying attention to what I'm reading. Half the time I'm reading but really my brain is concentrating on other things. I'm almost done though! 1 more chapter! I'm hoping to finish this chapter before supper. This post is just a well deserved break from reading. I had some pretty awesome snacks during my study sesh!

2 diced organic kiwis!

Brownie protein batter with 1/2 mashed banana

This was my first attempt at this brownie batter. I used 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder and 2 tbsp almond milk. I think I used too much milk though so it was a bit runny. That's why I smashed in 1/2 a banana. It was still pretty good! I'll be having this snack again for sure!

I better get back to studying though. My plans for dinner are my leftover Sweet and Spicy Tofy stirfry with quinoa. I also have plans to go out for drinks to a restaurant called Beer Bros. They have something like 100 different beers there. It'll be exciting. We're going out because I won a bet (this doesn't happen too often)!!! But my Philadelphia Flyers beat the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday so Mat owes me big!!!

Anyways, have a great night. I might do another post later tonight if I'm not too tired after beer drinking!

  2. The Beer Bros place sounds fun! Sounds like an intense workout this AM, I am dying to try a core class!

  3. Hope you had a great night at the bar!! I love the brownie batter cookie dough...adding cocoa helps if it gets too liquidy too. Have a great day!
