FitSpo Friday

Helloooo Friday (night) I am oh so happy to see you. Hope everyone had a great day and a fantastic week. I had such a long day of work and feeling positively pooped. Current situation… home, sweats, din, wine, candles & technology, naturally. Tonight will be an early night, for sure. I got a terrible nights sleep last night, laying in bed, wide awake until about 230am. ughh…shoot me. This hasn’t happened in a while and it is the absolute pits.

Today was a much needed rest day & food was pretty light. My only legit meal was dinner, really. This just happens on super busy days — one of those “ate a whole bunch of nothin’ days” I mentioned last week.  Spirulina smoothie with my new fave protein powder (will be posting about this) for brek, Zip-Lock baggie of homemade trail mix, 2 small apples and not 1, but 2 visits to Rush Espresso.  I had a last minute cancellation which gave me an unexpected hour to myself, so I darted across the street to the Village.

Spirulina Smoothie

Rush Espresso, Ballantyne, Charlotte

Visit #1

Rush Espresso, Almond Milk Latte

Annnd visit #2
I posted this on my Instagram this afternoon. You guys know how much I love Rush and after today, they scored some bonus brownie points. I brought in my baggie of protein powder and they threw it in their blender to whip me up a protein shake. very, very cool.

Roasted Chicken, Peppers & Onions

and tonight’s din, one of my all-time favorites.
Chicken, Sausage, Onions & Peppers + Roasted Potatoes. Mmm Mmm s-oh good.
With a nice glass of wine, seriously hit the spot.

So, we have some catching up to do! Rewind to Wednesday…
I LOVED this circuit workout below.
I warmed up with some dynamic stretches + 10 minutes on the StairMaster (I was just feelin’ it)

Better Legs & Core Circuit Workout -

Here’s a little How To vid of the Reverse Lunge/Shoulder Press Combo move:

Be sure to keep your shoulders over the hips, chest lifted – no hunching over. Maintain good posture, the more upright you remain, the more you will feel this in your core. Inhale to step/lunge back, exhale to push forward & press dumbbells up overhead.

A look at some of Wednesday & Thursday’s Clean Eats…

oatmeal - hemp seeds, goji berries & pecans

Wednesday was pretty chilly again and I was in the mood for a warm & cozy bowl of oats
Hemp Seeds | Goji Berries | Pecans | Unsweetened Shredded Coconut | Cinnamon

Red Rice

– Pre Workout:  Red Rice + Hard Boiled Egg
– Post Workout was just a simple shake: Protein Powder, Almond Milk & Banana

131 Main - Seared Tuna Salad

Wine Down Wednesday — sub the wine for Mimosas. Right back to 131 Main like Sunday afternoon. Last minute dinner date with one of my BFF’s. We shared a chips & guac app (again) and I had their seared tuna salad.

Green Smoothie

Thursday morning was a green smoothie to go (plus I shoved down 2 scrambled eggs) Chicken & Apple for in between clients

Red Rice + Salad

Red Rice & Salad.

Apple & Hummus

Still hungry…ate a small apple & hummus. This was my pre boxing fuel.

Thursday night dinner at Firebirds and a movie with one of my best friends. We saw Endless Love – oh my what I beautiful love story. I am a fool for romantic movies like this. I just learned from a client today that movie was a remake — the original, starred Brooke Shields. I had no clue.

Firebirds - Crabcake App

Shared this yummy crab cake app

Firebirds - Seared Tuna Salad

This is pretty much my go to salad whenever I eat at Firebirds. Mixed greens salad, (lots) of goat cheese, hold the dressing and I just add whatever protein I’m feeling — usually chicken or seared tuna. so good.

Pear & Strawberries

Came home after the movie and ate this delicious fruit for dessert. Both the pear & strawberries were so ripe, they were sugary sweet! Mmmm
