I almost always take Sundays as a rest-day, and if I don’t have a million things to do, I love sleeping in and catching up on life events I may have missed on Saturday. In bed. Listening to Sam Smith 🙂
Don’t get me wrong, I love Saturday’s too! Especially when they look something like yesterday…
Yesterday, Unite Fitness had a training session for their upcoming October Decathlon. Going into the session, I didn’t know exactly what it would be like, but did know that there would be a lot of strength events, interspersed with cardio intervals.
I was right about that, but what I didn’t expect was how intense the strength intervals would be!
The main theme of the workout? 50 reps! That meant: 50 burpees, 50 sit-ups, 50 chest presses, 50 box jumps… you get the picture. With some cardio thrown in there too, it was a hard one!
I was in major recovery mode after a hard workout that morning, and a hard workout week in general. What does that mean? Post-workout food!
I started off with a Pumpkin Spice Americano Misto (or something like that), from Caffeination.
Pumpkin spice really shouldn’t be limited to the fall season. I love it too much!
I then stopped by Kat’s to chat, eat, and have a recovery hot tub. Sadly, the hot tub at her apartment was cold, so I improvised, and turned her bathtub into a hot tub. I felt remarkably good afterwards, and my muscles felt super relaxed! I just wish I had had some epsom salts to throw in the mix.
For lunch, I had a smoothie courtesy of her Vitamix! In the blender went:
- 1.5 frozen bananas
- a handful of spinach
- 0% Greek yogurt
- Rice protein powder
- 1 Tbsp Peanut Butter
I also used up the other half of the frozen banana by combining it with a little more Greek yogurt, and some peanut butter and jam, to make a PB&J yogurt parfait!
The PB&J train continued this morning with my oatmeal.
I combined rolled oats, egg whites, flax seed meal, and PB2, and microwaved it until it was all cooked. I then topped it with some more peanut butter and raspberry jam.
I love PB&J, but rarely make it in standard sandwich form, mainly because I don’t eat a lot of bread. Thankfully, despite my slight dislike for bread, I can still enjoy the tasty combo in other forms 🙂
Do you like PB&J?
Are there any other combinations you’ll adapt from their “standard” form?
