Happy Wednesday Ya’ll!
I briefly mentioned in my Fun Five Friday last week that I was starting a new workout/training program this week.
I’m doing Jim Stoppani’s Shortcut to Size program after being inspired by one of my favorite instagrammers. However, I’m modifying the plan just a bit to fit my needs/workout style. I’ll be doing all of the strength days and workouts as well as adding a HIIT warm-up to each strength day. The plan has 3 rest days a week and I plan on doing longer cardio/strength cardio on those days to keep my endurance up. Of course I’ll be taking one full rest day not even active rest to let my muscles rebuild. I’m excited to see the strength I can build from this program! I’ll keep you all posted, of course!
Here’s a look at my eats from yesterday.. oh AND HAPPY OCTOBER!
1/2 Banana w/ 1 tsp. Almond Butter
Oatmeal Minus the Oats. (Recipe from Carrots n’ Cake.) Since I’ve cut out oats my stomach has been SO happy with me. It’s truly crazy since I use to eat them every single day. I decided to give oatmeal minus the oats a try in my Sunday food prep and make a big batch to last me throughout the week. I’m happy to say I’m very pleased with them and they were a great way to re-fuel after my workout. Not to mention they kept me fuel for most of the morning.
This is such a typical Brittany snack. Aka bird food. I mixed together some seed trail mix, chopped dates and a scoop of organic PB and drizzled some almond milk over the top. I wanted a “cereal” but was craving the nutty-ness of a trailmix.
Lunch was an array of delicious eats and surprisingly not a salad in a jar this week! I had some crock-pot chicken, wild rice, steamed broccoli, sweet potato wedges and a 1/2 avocado scooped out with rice crackers. All of the nutrients I need to fuel me for my busy day!
Hooray for apple season! I enjoy a big organic honey crisp with a Larabar!
This dinner was seriously THE.BOMB. Period. I made a spinach, kale, black bean & goat cheese quesadilla in my cast iron skillet. A great way to end the day!

Have a great Wednesday! XOXO
