I chose oatmeal for my breakfast and topped it with cinnamon, strawberries, and pecans. Oatmeal never gets old for me. And it’s so filling!
I had another sweet potato veggie burger for lunch today. This time with 1/2 Tbsp ketchup. I actually liked that more than the avocado. Must be the corn syrup 😛
For dinner I went with a simple classic: salad. Admittedly, having no feta just seemed wrong, but it was still full of flavor. Plus, I needed an easy way to use up more of my tomatoes.
I continued my workout trend with the next segment of the Five Day Workout Plan.
I used those 10 lb weights again except for the Reverse Fly. The link above has descriptions for some of the exercises. I didn’t do the reverse pushup because I was too lazy to get under the table to do it, which is really the only place in my apartment that it will work. If you’re at the gym, the bar that goes over benches is the easiest for reverse pushups, or just simply do pull-ups (if you can!).
After my workout, I indulged in a smoothie for my snack. I blended up a banana, 5 strawberries, a handful of fresh spinach, half a cup of almond milk and half a cup of orange juice.
