Weekly Workouts

I was feeling great this week! The workouts were tough and I lost 2lbs! But I know that the workouts were only a part of it, it was the eats. I have been tracking my carbs on sparkpeople.com and it makes a HUGE difference.

Sunday: Jumping at sky zone 🙂

Monday: 12 hour shift + 40 min bike

Tuesday: 12 hr shift

Wednesday: 35min ellpitical + arm workout

Thursday: 60 min kickboxing class (I was a red sweaty mess~!)

Friday: 12 hour shift

Saturday: 1 hour spin class

I have also been looking for new recipes so I don’t get bored. Like the paleo pumpkin cake and the protein version!

Question for you:

What is one workout you did this week?

Have you tried any new foods or recipes lately?

What I Ate Wednesday: Recipe modified

I usually talk about the food I eat on Wednesday, to follow along with Peas and Crayons and lots of other bloggers, but today, I will show you pictures of things I ate and then get right to the good stuff. A MODIFIED DESSERT RECIPE.

so that is the NOT exciting part. After the pumpkin cake mug recipe that I found, I realized the coconut flour + the honey sometimes put me way over my carbs. (im trying to eat less carbs. My body loves carbs=my body gains weight when I eat them)

Anywho, so I wanted to try something that wouldn’t have lots of carbs, AND would still be tasty. I basically just substituted a different ingredient.
