Day 4: Bikini Series

Day 4 already! Why is time going by way too fast? It’s going to be ridiculous once finals start which will be in the next upcoming two weeks. I’m pretty nervous about them especially since I will try to keep up with the series.

For today’s workout I did the HITT It! Wild Engine Revver and it was incredible. I started to sweat after the second rep but unfortunately my ankle got the best of me so I decided to walk until I had to get off.

I wanted something quick and easy for breakfast so of course I had to make oatmeal! I added blueberries, granola, banana, cinnamon, chia seeds and vanilla almond butter. It was great post workout filling breakfast because I paired it with my Meta-D.

I had to study for my Chemistry quiz so I didn’t have time to eat my grapefruit as my M2 but my oatmeal was very satisfying that I didn’t need a snack.

I ended up drinking some of my lemon infused water and eating a apple cinnamon Chobani Greek yogurt for my M3 in class. I’m usually uncomfortable with eating in class because everyone stares but I don’t care anymore I’m eating healthy 🙂

I was satisfied for an two hours and then I had blue diamond’s almond crackers with vanilla almond butter (I love almonds). So delicious and I was in my math class as I was eating and my professor was intrigued so I offered him one and he love it! Yay points for converting him 🙂

For dinner I had a small amount of my leftover pasta and wanted something cold so I made a smoothie. I added:

1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1 banana
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp flax seeds
1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

Delicious! Delicious! I was so satisfied and full that I will definitely make smoothies more often as a meal. For my evening workout I completed the 8 toning moves from SELF Magazine. I put my new dumbbells to use.

I will be sore tomorrow and that’s a promise. I hope you all have had a great day!

Day 3: Bikini Series

Today we had a Bikini Series Workout which was amazing. It’s ridiculous how much I sweat after it, pretty embarrassing since it only took 20 mins to complete :p

Here’s the video if you want to do it, which I suggest you do 😉

My meals for M1-M4 were the same as yesterday’s. My dinner was amazing! I am really proud of myself and how I was able to whip this up quickly.

I made a very Lean, Clean and Green dinner that was filling, delicious and healthy!

Here’s the recipe:

1 chicken breast steamed

3-4 cups of baby spinach

2 cups of broccoli florets

3-5 tsp of extra virgin olive oil

4-5 cloves of garlic

2 cups of whole wheat penne

3 sprinkles of mozzarella cheese

1-3 grinds of McCormick’s Italian Medley seasoning

My afternoon/evening workout was a treadmill run using Nike+GPS. This was also the first real run I had since my sprained ankle.

I’m not too sure if I accurately trust the app but it’s pretty amazing the way it works.

Enjoy! 🙂

Day 2: Bikini Series

So for today’s challenge we had to create a vision board

which I completed mine on pinterest:

For today’s workout we had to do the 8 Toning Moves and the ‘Plateau Buster’ from the SELF Magazine Drop 10 workouts.

It felt really good to get back on the treadmill and give my ankle some exercise. I also felt super energized after this workout.

For my first meal I had my Overnight Oats and I added mango, unsweetened coconut flakes and vanilla almond butter.

It was delicious when I paired it with my Meta-D!

For my second meal I had 1/2 a grapefruit with 1 packet of truvia. Nothing like a good fat burning fruit as a snack. For my third meal I had Katrina’s Meadows Kale Salad from the Beach Babe Nutrition Plan.

For my fourth meal I had the Chocolate Dipped Coconut LUNA bar. Delicious and it totally hit the spot.

And lastly for my fifth meal I made a delicious dinner consisting of steamed chicken, sweet potato fries and asparagus squirted with fresh lemon and lime juice.

Day 1: Bikini Series

I’m nervous for this challenge since I’ve never done it before but I am up for it! So for the first day of the challenge we were ordered to write out our goals.

20120418-025155.jpg

I had so many goals and aspirations but decided to keep it short; like the 8 weeks that will fly on by!

20120418-025313.jpg

We also had to pack our healthy meals for Monday and plan our workout.

Not too shabby for the first day 🙂
