Return to Routine
I love traveling as much as the next person but I also look forward to returning to my routine at the end of a trip. It is inevitable that, while away from home, my workouts aren’t as intense (i am away from my usual equipment), my eating habits tend to get lax (i am off schedule and don’t always have access to what i usually eat), and my sleep is screwy (not in my own bed and not on my typical schedule).
We landed in Anchorage at about 11:30pm last night completing a week long vacation in Kauai. It was a great trip but I am glad to be home!
Breakfast — May 13, 2013
Speaking of returning to routine:
YAY! PB toast with chia seeds and hot cereal with strawberries!
What can I say? I am a creature of habit!
Workout — May 13, 2013
After breakfast this morning and some coffee, I took some time getting reacquainted with my oldest friend — the gym! Even though I worked out everyday while I was in Kauai, I missed the heavy lifting and the treadmill sprints that I absolutely love doing. I really wanted to work hard this morning so I did a 3-part workout. I started off on the treadmill with a 25 minute interval workout on the treadmill:
After I was done on the treadmill I pulled out a couple barbells and a kettle bell and jumped right in to this weight lifting circuit workout:
I wasn’t ready to leave the gym just yet so I completed this super quick, 3 round, ab circuit:
Man, it sure felt good to be back in the gym again and hitting those weights! Second only to Joe and Sadie, I missed the gym while I was gone. I am almost certain that there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
Lunch — May 13, 2013
For most of the afternoon I was home playing catch up around the house, unpacking, and doing laundry. With no lettuce or spinach in the house (i am hoping that Joe ate it and that it didn’t go bad while i was gone) and with a serious hankering for veggies I was happy to discover a drawer full of goodness in the fridge:
I took this as a sign that today’s lunch should be roasted veggies and quinoa:
1/2 a cup of quinoa piled high with roasted zucchini, carrots, and broccoli!
Super delicious and super filling.
I hope you guys had a good Monday! Now I am off to the gym for some coaching!
