Hi Friends! Unfortunately I can’t show you what I ate the last couple of days because A) it’s a secret since I’m working on recipes for this month’s Recipe Redux B) it’s cloudy outside and all my food looks like gruel. It’s okay though because for breakfast I’ve pretty much had this same spinach and cheese omelet every single day.
- – BIG handful of spinach
- – 3/4 cup egg whites
- – 1/4 cup/1 ounce shredded cheese
- – sprinkle of red pepper flakes
- – cooking oil
- Sauté spinach on medium heat in oil (I used my Misto to spray Avocado oil) until just wilted.
- Pour egg whites over spinach, sprinkle cheese on 1/2 of omelet, let cook until eggs are set.
- Fold one half over the other and let cook another minute or so. I then like to flip mine one more time just to make sure it’s cooked all the way through.
- Slide onto a plate and top with desired toppings, spicy serves well with salsa, sour cream/yogurt, and avocado!
(Also check out this post it’s a great How To Tutorial on the perfection of omelet making from one of my favorite bloggers who I think might disagree with my “cook all the way through” method but that’s how I like my egg whites! Egg omelets are another story! Also see my thoughts on egg whites versus eggs in case you’re curious.)
At Home Workouts
I’ve been loving home workouts recently, it’s been a LONG time since I just did my own thing at home and I really love it! Especially since I am totally cramming for AFAA Group Fitness Instructor cert right now, it helps out not to drive to and from the gym. Pinterest (let’s be friends there too if were not already—> Hungry Hobby) led me to this post which inspired me to put together this workout for a little at home crossfit fun. This workout took me about 24 minutes:
- No push up on the burpees for me, just up/down.
- I used the power tower for the pull ups, the way we have it positioned at home the dumbbell rack is at the perfect height for me to use my feet for assistance just like I would do on the cage at the gym. No power tower? A strong table or ledge can be an option!
- I did most of the push ups full out, but the last set was definitely on my knees.
- Sit ups have caused back flares for me in the past so I did leg lifts
*I’m a big fan of Crossfit, but one of the most dangerous aspects about Crossfit style workouts are the emphasis on time. Pay attention to your form, injury prevention should always come first. Remember even though I’m a Personal Trainer, workouts posted here are my own personal workouts and intended to be informational, please obtain medical clearance before beginning any fitness regimen. Also, seek help if you don’t understand good form of a movement to prevent injury and get the most out of it! Happy lifting 🙂
The pup and I went on a walk/jog, then I took her home and decided to do my first ever off the treadmill sprint work. I figured out my street is about 200 meters (luckily I’m on the end so it’s less weird) I did 6 sprints and walk/jog back. I really liked it, there were times my Garmin registered 6:45pace for like a millisecond but still! I would have never known I could do that if I hadn’t try sprinting off the treadmill. The only downside was the impact of the road was a bit much…. I think track running is in my future! Okay I’m off to study more have a great weekend!
