I signed up for the Marine Corps Body Makeover Boot Camp on base today!
Eeeeee!!!!! I’m equal parts excited and terrified. Emphasis on terrified. I can’t help but wonder what my What I Ate Wednesday eats will end up looking like with these 5am body blasting workouts as part of my routine. I’m fairly ravenous after spinning and zumba, but boot camp? I can only imagine!
Instead of setting a weight loss goal, I’d like to focus on losing my love handles, gaining lean muscle and furthering the healthification [so not a real word] of my meals and snacks. I’ll need more protein in my diet, which has always been a struggle of mine. Just looking at my WIAW below lets me know I have a LOT of work to do in the protein department! For me that means more quinoa, more legumes, and more seafood! I also want to jump back onto the green monster smoothie bandwagon and add a little hemp/rice/pea protein blend to those as well. As far as goals go, an edible goal is always a great one in my book! Do you have any goals you’ve set for yourself lately? I’d love to hear em! <3
Like a goober, I overslept and nearly missed my spin class… so the second I realized the time I jumped up, grabbed a cup of black coffee, my water bottle, and a few fistfuls of raisins and booked it! [snack] post gym I did a little recipe testing with my dairy-free mocha frappuccinos – sooo good! It wasn’t long before my stomach not-so-politely informed me It was lunch time. [lunch] 1/2 a thin crust spinach and feta pizza and lots of agua. [snack] Snapea Crisps! Kris got me addicted to them — they are puffy and light like a cheese puff – only without the cheese! In. Love. [dinner] cheesy spaghetti, spicy edamame, and a handful or two of sweet potato puffs decked out in honey mustard and ketchup. Overall a super-satisfying day — though I wish I had time for a proper breakfast. I need to work out my alarm issues on days with early workouts.
and because we’re going green this month, here’s a little extra color splash along with a few tips and tricks for greening it up all over the place.
Now I know green veggies aren’t always the first thing on your mind for breakfast [unless you’re partial to spinach quiches or omelettes… then it’s a no-brainer!] so why not glam up your granola and greek yogurt with some gorgeous green kiwi, apples, or grapes!
Then you can take it a step further and green your greens!
Skewer an array of vegetables [bonus points for zucchini and peppers!] on a stick and brush with a mixture of equal parts lemon juice and pesto. You can even layer fresh basil leaves in between the veggies for an extra burst of basil.
