I may have already posted a similar smoothie mix, but that’s ok, I love smoothies. This morning I started out my day by waking up REALLY early so I could get to the gym. I wanted to get there early because I knew today was our team meeting and we always eat too much for lunch. I also knew today would be one of the planned sugar consumption days. [Gotta say, after going so many days without sugar, I didn’t feel great after having cake and I could have certainly gone without.]
My morning workout at the gym was pretty good, and then once home I did a body weight workout. Thanks goodness today was the light rep day because I don’t think I could have done 150 squats!
7.0 – 5 minutes
9.0 – 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off for 10 minutes
5% incline @ 6.5 – 1 minute one, 1 minute off. Go until legs feel like Jelly.
5% incline @ 9.0 – 20 on, 20 off, 5 minutes
Then I did a half hour elliptical to shake out the legs.
Body weight workout:
40 plie squats
40 donkey kicks (each leg)
40 fire-hydrants (each leg)
40 side leg (each leg)
Now that I was done with that, it was smoothie time!
What’s in it:
- ½ cup blueberries
- 1 container %0 Fage greek yogurt (plain)
- 1 tbsp milled flaxseed
- Dash of milk
- Dollop of whip cream.
I throw everything but the whip cream into the blender and blend until smooth. I then topped it with some homemade whip cream (so it didn’t have added sugar) and it was the perfect little topping for tasty smoothie.
What a nice start to the day!
