08/21/12 Workouts and Meals

Hola!  I hope everyone is having a great week!  Today was supposed to be an Upper Body Weight-Training day for me.  However, TOM arrived today and it was so hard for me to find motivation to do an intense workout this morning.  I ended up doing a 2 mile interval on the TM and Summer Arms from the ToneitUp Beach Babe DVD instead.  Total workout time 34 minutes.  Oh well!

For my breakfast I had a zucchini-turkey egg-white scramble, 1/2 an apple and a sprouted toast with a hummus spread and cucumber slices.
(YES! Siracha & Mustard over my eggs) lol
It was a little cold out today and the hubby requested soup for dinner!
I threw a bunch of stuff together and ended up with a Veggie Chicken soup.  Doesn't look very appetizing but it was delish!

To my soup went:
3 small zucchinis (from a co-worker's garden)
2 small squash (from a co-worker's garden)
1/2 of a diced (humongous) yellow onion
3 celery stalks
2 minced garlic cloves
2 bay leaves
1 bag of baby spinach (from a co-worker's garden)
1 1/2 of left-over grilled chicken breast
2 cups of organic veggie broth
2 cups of water
salt & pepper
1 tbsp. of fresh rosemary leaves (from my garden)
1 tbsp. of fresh thyme (from my garden)

This soup will be perfect for a dinner or lunch meal for next month's 30 day "Whole Foods-No Crap" Challenge! Have you scheduled your pantry cleaning day yet?

After dinner I had a slice of my Healthy Banana Bread and a glass of U. choco Almond Breeze...
I get intense lower-back cramps when TOM arrives, but I do my best to still be active with my workouts.  Do you guys take time off from your workouts during your TOM?
