So I know I literally JUST wrote a post about how I was having back pain and back spasms.
And if you follow me on twitter or instagram, you may have noticed I’ve still been posting my fitfluential proof pictures.
If you don’t really know me, then you probably wouldn’t know that I’m a little bit stubborn at times. Just a little
So on Monday even though I was dying to get in the gym, I took the day off. I needed it, and I know when I’m injured I do not want to injured myself even further.
However, Tuesday came along and I felt a tiny bit better, so I mostly just did cardio and a little bit of chest with light weights.
Wednesday came along, and it was leg day. I LOVE leg day. Like really, I love it. I look forward to it. And I really didn’t want to miss it. I decided Tuesday night to see how I felt in the morning and then decide if I should workout or not.
I woke up Wednesday, and I felt magically better!
Biofreeze, I love you. I still wanted to play it safe so I did my leg workout, but used lighter weights than I normally would, and dumbbells instead of barbells or the smith machine so nothing would have to go on my shoulders.
So far so good. I made it through leg day, very very minimal back pain, and still feeling great. I’m still being careful though just in case and I will continue to biofreeze the heck out of my back.
For some reason, my upper back is sore and not really my legs. I don’t understand because I didn’t work my upper back at all this week? Anyway, today was arms, abs, and cardio.
Can I just tell you all how BORING cardio is becoming to me?
I never though those words would come out of my mouth, but yes it’s boring to me right now and I’m loving the weight training much more than the cardio. Although, I still love how sweaty cardio gets me.
Some eats as of late:
I’ve been slacking on the veggie roasting and finally got to roasting some yesterday. So good. Just a tablespoon of olive oil, pepper, garlic, and basil.
Daily salad with spinach, tomato, chicken, cauliflower, goat cheese. I make my own dressing by the way, it’s super easy and a lot healthier.
You can find the recipe here and lately I haven’t even been putting salt or pepper and it still comes out perfect.
Awesome PWO smoothie. It’s the first time I used pasteurized egg whites in a smoothie. I was scared, but it came out good.
I just did ice, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/3 c. egg whites (or two egg whites), 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 c. almond milk, vanilla stevia, spinach.
Have you ever put pasteurized egg whites in a smoothie?
Favorite form of cardio?
