Double Dose

Hey friends! Sorry I didn’t get Tuesday’s post up. I have been exhausted lately. I’m doing a double dose of blogging today. Yay! Today I’m posting a recipe and a workout.

Tuesday’s treat:

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I find myself rather rushed in the mornings; therefore, I don’t often have time to fix something extravagant. I have recently been cooking meals, such as scrambled eggs with vegetables, ahead of time and warming them up in the morning. I usually cook a week’s worth of breakfasts at a time and then freeze them. My husband loves having warm, filling food in the morning and I love not having to think about what I am going to eat! I have found another filling breakfast that is easy and does not require cooking ahead of time (hurray if you are a person who does not enjoy cooking). It’s simple and quick to make. I call it an apple sandwich. Take an apple and cut it down the middle. Once it is cut, spread peanut butter or almond butter on it (depending on your preference) and then sprinkle granola over it. I usually buy gluten free cinnamon and raisin granola from Aldi. It’s delicious and nutritious!

Doesn’t it look yummy? Give it a try sometime and let me know what you think!

Wednesday’s Workout:

The at home CrossFit challenge continues! I hope you are also remembering the burpee challenge (just fit those burpees right into your routine). Here’s the workout for week two!

Day 8: 10 burpees (you can modify these by going down onto your knees and putting your legs out slower if needed), 1 minute plank, 1 minute side plank (both sides) (3 rounds)

Day 9: How many rounds in 10 minutes (keep going, taking breaks between sets if needed for 10 minutes): 5 push-ups, 10 sit-ups, 15 air squats

Day 10: 20 walking lunges, 50 jumping jacks (4 rounds)

Day 11: Longer run (or whatever it is that you like to do–biking, swimming, etc) that lasts at least 30 minutes

Day 12: Rest day

Day 13: 15 vertical jumps (crouch down, then jump as high as you can, land and do it again), 10 push-ups (5 rounds)

Day 14: Run 1 mile, for time, followed by 100 jumping jacks

As previously mentioned I will also be researching workouts for people with are just starting their workout routine or have injuries or health concerns that hinder their ability to perform some of the moves above. I hope to have some ideas by next week!
