Happy 4th of July everyone!! The husband and I have to work today, sadly, but we get to go home this weekend and see both of our families! It will be the first time that we have visited our families together since we got married and we are so excited! We will probably leave work a little early today and hit up the pool.
I made us this smoothie this morning to celebrate. Red White & Blue Smoothie: Strawberries, Blueberries, Almond Milk and Protein. Yum!
For What I Ate Wednesday here are some of my eats from yesterday, I like to do What I Ate Tuesday and share it on Wednesday.
Breakfast: Fage Greek Yogurt + Blueberries + Muesli Snack: Luna Chocolate Dipped Coconut- love this flavor Lunch: Grilled Chicken Greek Salad Snack: Laughing Cow Cheese with Cucumbers Dinner: Cilantro Turkey Burgers with Tomato and Guacamole
WIAW this month is also about Fitness. Over the last month I have tried to be more focused on working different muscle groups on different days of the week. I used to always want to do a little bit of everything everyday, but I have learned that your muscles need to time to recover and centralizing on different muscles on certain days will help you focus on building and defining.Monday was Cardio + Butt Tuesday was Arms + Cardio
Balance Ball Push-Ups- Balance your feet on a Balance Ball and walk your hands into a plank. Do 12-15 push-ups. ** Do normal push-up if you don’t have a Balance Ball.
Overhead Tricep Extensions: Hold a weight or medicine ball straight up overhead and dip the weight back. Dip back 12-15 times.
Bicep Hammer Curls- Hold free weights in your hands by your sides and curl your weights to your shoulders, holding the weight like a hammer.
Squat and One Arm Shoulder Press- Squat down with weight in hand, stand up as you press weight overhead. Do 12-15 reps on one arm. Then repeat on other arm after Bent Over Row.
Bent Over Row- Bend knees and bend slightly at the waist. Hold weights by your side, slightly in front of you. Pull weights up by your chest with elbows driving back. Do 12-15 reps.
