Where to even begin? It’s been over 3 months since I’ve sat down to write and share something on thelittlehoneybee.com. I don’t know why I thought 2016 would be the year that I’d get back to blogging and sharing more consistently but that just doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen. Running a business is no walk in the park! But I find myself sitting here on a Wednesday morning waiting for today’s Honey Bee Meals to cool before I package them and head out to delivery with some time and motivation to write.
So here I am. Anyone out there?
So let’s get right to the good stuff: the food and the fitness. Let’s talk about Monday. Mondays are kinda like my weekend. Still work to do but kinda relaxing. Most people dread Mondays but they are also a good day to reset. Drank a bit too much on the weekend? Moved a little less? Monday is the time to get after it!
I like seeing what other people eat and sharing my own but it’s a kindaaa sticky situation if people start comparing. That’s just not cool. No two people are the same. Nope, we just aren’t. K?
7am: Wake-up, do e-mails
8am-ish: Breakfast: 1/2 cup gluten free oats with 1 banana, blueberries, 2 egg whites, water, cinnamon (made in microwave, yup I do it) + 2 hard boiled eggs
I am really loving a bit of carbs in the morning. Oats are totally fine for me.
Work, read, plan, organize for the rest of the week. Do some accounting.
12:30pm: Lunch: leftover grass-fed beef burger with lots of veggies (spinach, peppers, cherry tomatoes), hemp seeds and an avocado. Plus an un-pictured orange
Go to the bank, grab a few things from Organic Garage, pick up dinner, eat a few Trader Joe’s dark chocolate honey mints at some point on the way to the gym – loving this chocolate energy boost pre-workout
Warmed up with a 500m row, mobility then did:
5 rounds of:
15 wall balls (14#)
12 power cleans (65#)
9 burpees over bar
This killed me. Took me wayyy longer than it should have/than I thought it would take. Like 17-ish minutes I think. Some days are just like that. Hmph.
Then I joined in with the 5 o’clock class for a 12 minute squat EMOM (every minute on the minute)
5-4-3-rest x3 of front squats (video here) – I worked up to 85# for my last set
Squats are seriously great.
6:15pm: Dinner in the car. This is a recycled pic but it was the same salad from What a Bagel: greens, chicken, carrots, broccoli, sun dried tomatoes, apple cider vinegar. Wolfed it down on the way to coach.
6:30-8:30pm: Coach little kiddies how to play basketball
Home, shower, emails
9:30pm: No pic but snack was 2 rice cakes with peanut butter – so happy to be eating PB again! I used to think it made me breakout but it does not. Oh happy days!
So that was Monday. And that’s what blogging feels like again. Cool.
Happy hump-day! And hello June!
Do you LIKE reading these kind of posts? Do you want to see something like this once a week or so? I’d love to hear from you!
