Workout: Body Attack followed by Body Flow (685 cals burned)
Today started off with an amazing workout! I began with the 9:30am Body Attack class, which is very cardio-heavy and then slowed it down for a Body Flow class afterward. Now I am not typically a yoga/pilates type of person, but I LOVED the Body Flow workout–so sooo good! According to the Les Mills website:
BODYFLOW™ is the Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centered and calm. Controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses to music create a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance.
I definitely think there are benefits to incorporating this type of workout into the mix, so I think it’s a workout I’ll be coming back to in the weeks to come! Ok, onto the food. I fueled up post-workout with a protein smoothie, made with my trusty Magic Bullet.
About an hour later I downed a portion of my garbanzo stir fry.
I had a late afternoon meeting, so I made sure to get a snack in before heading into the meeting.
After my meeting I ran some errands and then met up with my cousin who lives in town for dinner. She had to push it back a little later, and I was STARVING, so I went to a trusty snack in my school bag to hold me over until dinner.
We ate at an Italian/pizza place. I managed to avoid the pizza option and the complimentary (and delicious) garlic rolls–score! I ordered a whole wheat linguine pasta with broccoli and artichokes in olive oil. Not the lightest of options, but I’m glad I got the whole wheat pasta and there were some veggies in the mix. I soooooo wanted some fro-yo after dinner, but I resisted the temptation and made myself a banana/almond butter/coconut bowl when I got home to satisfy my craving.
It hit the spot! I have a big, fun weekend coming up, which probably includes some bad eating, so I’m glad I was able to stay on track today.
