Pure Cardio, Pineapple & Apple Cider + Pizza?

Happy HuMp Day!  Feeling great, not sore at all from my TRX workout, doing it again tomorrow!   I woke up at 5:00 am today to get my morning workout done.   I over indulged this last weekend and need to get back on track.  I did Insanity’s Pure Cardio for my workout (about 40 minutes.)  I love the Pure Cardio workout because it isn’t about a bunch of repetitions of the same workouts.  It’s about how much you can get done in the amount of time you are given, therefore it is always challenging, no matter your fitness level; you will work your butt off!
Something new I have been doing this week, is having ½ cup of organic pineapple juice mixed with 2 tbs of organic raw apple cider vinegar, on an empty stomach, then I go on to do my morning workout and have my lemon water after my apple cider vinegar concoction and during my workout. WHY?   I do this for energy, electrolytes, and of course as my daily detoxification prior to my intense morning workout.

For my breakfast: I had a green smoothie; I used the sample of OL Pea Protein powder I received with my Vitacost order.  I forgot to mention that the OL Pea Protein is vegan, sweetened with Stevia, 1g of sugar, and 25 g of protein. I got the chocolate sample and although it is sweetened with stevia, it had a strange after taste.

I threw in the usual suspects: spinach, wheat grass, spirulina, a handful of raspberries, 1 tbs of wheat germ (for a lil folic acid,) 1 tbs of PB2 chocolate, ½ cup of unsweetened chocolate almond milk,  1 ½  cup of cold yogi decaf green tea (brewed yesterday and cooled overnight) cinnamon, and a little more stevia.  Sorry, no picture; o (…
But honestly, who wants to look at a photo of another green smoothie, right??

I had a little cottage cheese for my snack while at work…coffee & lots of water today!

I had pizza for lunch!


I used an Ezekiel sprouted tortilla, warmed it on a grilling pan.
1 tbs of tofutti cheese
About a cup of leafy greens
Sautéed onions, peppers and mushrooms
1 chicken breast
A nutritional yeast on top, Siracha and jalapenos…
YUMMO!

I'm about to start my Summer Arms workout from the Tone It Up! Beach Babe DVD & a 10 min kettle bell workout before heading out for a fun game of volleyball with a bunch of competitive guys.  FUN!

Fish, asparagus and sweet potatoes is the plan for dinner!  Have a lovely day!
