I remembered that I had been recapping my weekly workouts on my Friday Favorite posts, but since I haven’t done one in 2 weeks, I figured I should recap my workouts now. Since I’m on a busy inpatient medicine rotation, my workouts have been short- between 30 and 45 minutes usually. Honestly, I’m just happy if I workout at all.
Last weeks workouts:
- Friday- OFF
- Saturday- OFF
- Sunday- Tennis
- Monday- Kayla Itsines legs and cardio
- Tuesday- 40 min treadmill (3.5 miles)
- Wednesday- 25 min treadmill, 25 min arms
- Thursday- OFF
- Friday- 20 min run (10 minutes on flat and 10 minutes on incline) and 15 min abs
- Saturday- OFF
- Sunday- Run 3 miles + 10 sprints between telephone poles
Yesterday was a gorgeous day- sunny and 65, so I ran outside.
I stopped mid-run to do sprints between these telephone poles:
It was actually really tiring and a great HIIT workout to breakup my normal steady state run.
I spent the rest of yesterday cooking A TON of food. Did I mention I’m going to do the Tone It Up 8 week bikini series? It’s a fitness challenge/ healthy eating plan for 8 weeks and I’ve never done it before. This year, it’s all spelled out- literally every single meal and every single workout for 8 weeks. I’m not going to stress over doing it perfectly, but I thought it would be a fun challenge to try. Also, it’s going to be nice to not have to think about meals and what I’m going to eat- it’s all written in the plan! Lastly, one of my blogger friends Katie is doing it with me, so I have an awesome partner to help keep me accountable
I made all kinds of food and now my fridge is stocked and full of tupperware!
It’s probably good timing because medicine months are always so unhealthy for me. I eat all kinds of things on call- like this delicious chocolate chip bagel:
Or this berry parfait one of the nurses brought in for us:
It will be easier to say no now that I have an actual plan to follow.
This smoothie has become my new favorite thing ever and I can’t not share it with you. For some reason mangos have become my new favorite fruit- I talked about this a few days ago- and I have a bunch of them sliced up in my freezer now. Well, if you blend mango, frozen banana, some almond milk, and some liquid egg whites for protein (or you can leave those out if you don’t want/need the extra protein) it makes the dreamiest smoothie.
I’ve been topping it with coconut flakes, cashews, or almond butter. Seriously so good. The flavor is summery and transports me to the beach- maybe if I keep drinking it, warm weather will come sooner?
Have a lovely day!
Do you like mango in your smoothies? You should try it asap
