Happy Hump Day people! Although I must say, since I work weekends I can’t really call it hump day for me! But, as you’ll see in this post, I’m trying to make the most of being on such a flexible schedule before life goes crazy again when I start my course in October. So, without further ado, let’s hop to it and rewind to my eats and activities from Monday, which was day 7 of my Whole 30.
I woke at 6am and downed a black coffee whilst munching on a banana dipped in almond butter – the best combo – before heading to CrossFit.
We did the usual warm-up run and then the fun began:
6 min AMRAP:
5 kettlebell lunges each leg
10 sumo deadlift high pulls with kettlebell
30 sec max. butterfly sit ups
1 min max. reps deadlifts
30 sec max. burpees over the bar
1 min rest
Epic! I was a bit cautious on the deadlifts with regards to adding weight so started at 50kg (the Rx was 60kg) and ramped it up to 55kg. Think I maintained the technique so next time I shall lift more!
I then drove home to make the most delicious breakfast… Sorry for the shitty photo, I was hungry!
And, yes, this was a sweaty breakfast. Shower vs. food? Food always wins, let’s be real. So post showering I headed to Sainsbury’s to pick up some food for the week. Lots of yumminess.
After this I did some house sorting and gave it a quick clean, it was positively gleaming by the end 😉 Obviously after all that strenuous work lunch was required, which was also pretty darn incredible…
Definitely going to be repeating this meal soon! However, next time I’ll add some chicken or something else to it as I wasn’t quite satisfied afterwards so made myself a coconut milk blueberry smoothie in a bowl… I’m not counting this as a snack as it felt like a lunch boost instead.
Then, I confess, I watched my guilty pleasure… Made In Chelsea NYC 😉 and I was in hysterics the whole time! It is so ridiculously brilliant. After ‘resting’ my brain somewhat I headed into town to work on some Uni reading in Starbucks and drove there with my headlights on and wearing a scarf in August. I found this very confusing…
As you can see, I had a snack. But I didn’t finish it! I count this as a #snackvictory! When I had finished the piece I was reading I popped into Holland & Barrett to pick up some bits before heading over to visit my mum for a chat and a catch up.
Which was followed by…DINNER! This was also seriously yummy. What was with all my meals being exceptionally good that day?! I sure wasn’t complaining…
This was all topped off with an unpictured mug of spiced apple camomile tea, happy days indeed.
