A healthy day in my healthy life

This morning I was up before the sun and getting my workout in.
I did an interval/circuit workout inspired by shift n lift.

I started with 10 min. on the spinning bike followed by resistance training working chest and back. Then it was back on the bike for 10 more min. and then shoulders, biceps, and triceps. I finished with 20 more min. on the bike.

I was reading in Shape magazine today that this style of workout is becoming a new workout trend. They are opening special clubs and introducing classes designed around a mix of intense cardio and resistance training. I like it because it's intense, burns a ton of calories, and you can pack more into your workout in a shorter amount of time.

As I finished my workout and was stretching and cooling down, the sun was coming up. It's so peaceful in the morning and makes you feel so accomplished to have your workout done. You also are ready to start the day with a healthy mindset.

Dinner tonight was full of omega 3's.

In the pasta salad was:
whole wheat fusili pasta, Tj's roasted red pepper and artichoke tapenade, feta, diced zucchini, broccoli, roasted red pepper, sun dried tomato, basil, oregano, dill, pepper, chili flakes, and Alaskan canned salmon.

Topped with some grated fresh Parmesan cheese

And served along with some local organic cherries. These cherries are amazing.

I always incorporate fruits and veggies into every meal. If there is a way to include more fruits and veggies, I will find it. The more the merrier.

How do you find ways to make sure that you are getting all the servings of fruits and veggies each day.

Any tips?

  1. oooh I love to switch between weights and cardio during my workout!! It helps so much with the boredom factor (particularly as I am not a fan of dreadmills / gym bikes!)
