Cardio is Back

Wow 2pm came really quick today! Now that I'm feeling healthy again we are back to our typical schedule and gym routine. I've been getting up a little earlier so that I can join B and the gym in the morning, and lately I haven't been feeling eggs first thing in the morning. So this morning I opted for a green protein shake (protein powder, almond milk, banana, oats, pumpkin, spinach) before our back and cardio day. 

It was enough to get me through my workout but didn't weigh me down, so it was a great alternative to the usual. Both B and I had a ton of energy this morning so we really went hard, included active rests in our lifting session and actually (finally) did some cardio. It wasn't much, but after not doing it for so long I didn't want to over do it. I'll probably get another 20 minutes or so of walking in between clients tonight, so that on top of my 10 sprints this morning is fine with me. 

I also prepped a couple meals today which collectively took about 20 minutes of my time-- I'm all about quick and efficient lately. 

The top photo is just kind of a hodgepodge of stuff that I threw together. I browned some chicken with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic, then added diced tomatoes, black beans and corn as well as some random spices and a couple handfuls of spinach. I'll eat this over brown rice and should last us at least a few days. Then I also made the pulled beef for tacos-- I was in a hurry this morning so this time all I did was cut the piece of flank steak into thirds so that when its shredded the pieces are shorter, and then dumped a can of diced green chills and a packet of taco seasoning on top. I just got home and shredded it and I think I like it this time even more than last. 

Hope everyone doing the Fit by Feb workouts is doing great, week 2 should be pretty challenging!
