day 1 – train dirty. eat clean.

i would say yesterday was a success.
i learned in my physical activity & health class yesterday that it takes TWO MONTHS for someone to really adapt to a new lifestyle and habit. when i look back and think about it…it did take me a while to finally make exercise a huge part of my life. now i don’t ever think about going more than a week without exercise. it’s just a habit now. as it should be.

the rest of my meals after my oat bran breakfast looked like this (if i can remember correctly):

post crossfit & chest+tricep workout: sample of triple whey protein from max muscle. (one of the personal trainers i used to work with opened his own max muscle supplement shop so i went to visit him and he bombarded me with samples & information haha).

pause for a minute. i need to discuss this.
i’m not a huge supplement guru. i don’t believe there’s a magic pill for people to get ripped, cut, and lose weight. it’s all about what you eat and how often you workout. point period. my friend was very well educated in his products and there is some science behind it, i just don’t feel like we need to take these things. i am okay with protein powders because i do believe they help repair your muscles after a hard workout…but chocolate milk has been proven to be just as effective (and its a lot cheaper!).
the only supplements i do take on a regular basis are essential omega fatty acids(i.e. fish oil). My friend sold me on this liquid omega stuff and it was DELICIOUS. it’s a peach mango flavor and it’s super thick. you only need 2 tsp daily and you get all your omega fatty acids for the day. it was all natural and organic, so i was definitely okay with buying it.
i also use CLA which is found in a lot of animal products. this has also been scientifically studied and has been “proven” to help with keep the fat from foods off of your hips, butt, and thighs area. i am not 100% sure if i believe this, but i will see if there is any results to my own body when i regularly take this.

ok mini rant over.

lunch: 5oz tomato basil marinated chicken breast diced, sauteed yellow squash seasoned with mrs. dash extra spicy, wilted spinach, all on top of a la tortilla factory tortilla. i made a sauce out of hummus, nutritional yeast, and mustard. THIS WAS AMAZING.
horrible picture, but you get the idea.

snack: vanilla whey protein shake with strawberries and 1/2 tbsp pb (tastes like PB&J!)
– i was super hungry at work so that’s why i made a protein shake

dinner: 1 can of tuna mixed with only mustard and mrs. dash, more spinach, nutritional yeast all topped on a whole wheat flatbread and baked in the oven for about 6-8 minutes on 350.

snack after class: 1/2 cup pumpkin mixed with 1 egg white, 1/4 tsp baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and microwaved for 4-5 minutes. topped with 1/4 cup edys no sugar added ice cream, 1 tbsp dark choc chips, and 1 tsp pb DELISH.
i also had some carrots + hummus

all in all…really good “clean” day.
my workout consisted of a crossfit workout with lots of different exercises. one of them were 50 box jumps and i whacked my leg because i lost balance and fell off. brutal scratch and bruise, but makes me feel b.a. haha
also did jamie eason’s day one of her livefit training program. (Chest & Triceps). i feel it today!

today is….
walk 2 miles, run 3 miles, speed walk 2 miles (part of 1/2 marathon training plan)
back & biceps
teach 45 minute step class.

better get going on my day!
