I have not laid out a weekly workout plan since I finished my half marathon. When I was training I wrote out exactly what I was going to do every day for 12 weeks, including strength training and yoga. Of course, I’ve still been getting my sweat on everyday but with less direction. When I don’t have a plan and I just sort of “wing it”, my workouts suffer. I am ready to get back at and I’m ready to sweat till it drips into my eyes! I found a great lower body workout in the November issue of Self Magazine that uses a wall for all the moves. I’ll let you know how I like it.
Monday- Self Magazine Wall Strength workout, 5 miles (include a few sprints)
Tuesday – spin class, yoga
Wednesday – 6-7 miles
Thursday – core interval class @ gym, yoga
Friday – 4 mile tempo run
Saturday – Self Magazine Wall Strength Workout , 10 miles
I’m excited to get started with my new workout plan this week and I will begin as soon as I drop Dax off at preschool this morning.
I have another great muffin recipe for you to try. I bought some wheat bran a few weeks back and have been wanting to experiment with it. I used the recipe on the back of my Bob’s Red Mill wheat bran as a base and went to town from there.
- 1 cup Wheat Bran
- 1.5 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 apple, dliced
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 cup milk (I used almond)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3/4 cup applesauce
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- 2 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 400. Combine wheat bran, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Stir in apple and nuts. In a separate bowl combine milk, maple syrup, honey, applesauce, and oil. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Add to dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Do not over mix! Spoon into paper muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes. Makes 12 scrumptious muffins.
I really liked these muffins. I made a double batch and froze half of them! They are chock full of fiber and will keep you full for hours.
And just because… When I got up this morning I came out to find Everett lounging on a pillow drinking his milk. SO cute!
What are you going to do for exercise today?
