So tonight was my final outdoor boot camp class (in the dark!). My Teambuy coupon was for 10 classes, and they had to be used in August and September. I actually only ended up going to six classes, due to slacking in August, and not wanting to go 3-4 times a week in September, but since the 10 classes only set me back 10 dolla it’s no biggie.
Seriously killer workout though. I am going to see if there is any sort of boot camp/cross fit class offered at my gym that I would not have to pay extra for. I am member of Goodlife Fitness, which means I can go to any Goodlife in my area. Normally I just go to the Women’s Only Goodlife above the Superstore that is closest to me, but they don’t typically have a very large variety of classes like some of the bigger co-ed Goodlifes do (no spinning, for example).
I also want to get back into going to BodyPump at LEAST once a week. I am thinking if I go to one that is a bit closer to my work, I may actually be able to take a 6am class. We will see how that goes…
I slacked a lot in the workout department for most of the summer, and I want to get back into it. I think boot camp may have revitalized my workout mojo though. I am feeling motivated!
Also, I wore my BIC Band tonight with regular slippery, shiny hair and for the most part it stayed in place! A couple little slippages, but I could just pull it back in place. BIC Band once again FTW!
Lunch for the past two days has been leftover Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken, so nothing too exciting.
I’ve been feeling pretty lazy on the whole making lunch thing the last few days. Usually I make my lunch the night before so I’m not scrambling around in the morning, or at least plan out what I’m packing. Having leftovers handy made this a breeze. A healthy lunch in seconds. Sign me up.
For dinner tonight I recreated the pork and broccoli stir fry I made earlier this month, because it’s quick and pretty dang yummy.
The only change I made was cooking brown rice to go with it instead of noodles, and then I threw the rice into the wok with the pork and broccoli once it was cooked. I preferred it with noodles, but the brown rice was probably healthier…
After boot camp I reallllly was craving a milkshake. I was tempted to stop at McDonalds or Dairy Queen and grab one, but I resisted the urge.
After my shower, the craving still wouldn’t go away… I have seen other bloggers make milkshake variations (Dawn @ Blonde On A Mission, for one), so I decided to make a healthier milkshake myself. It was amazing!
Crappy pic due to natural lighting around herrre, but meh.
Into my blender went:
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1/4 cup PC honey Greek yogurt (I didn’t measure, it was a few heaping spoonfuls)
- 3 ice cubes
- 1.5 cups almond milk (you could use any milk)
- 1 capful of vanilla extract (maybe a teaspoon)
- pinch xanthan gum (optional, to thicken)
Sorry, that’s a crappy recipe. A lot of guessing going on. But it was good! Almost as good as the real deal, and a lot better for you! It made enough for both Ando and I.
Shmanyway, I gotta go. It’s bed time and I am so ready.
Have a great night, and HOORAY for Friday tomorrow!
