Happy Hump Day!
Lately, I have been getting more inquiries about what my workout schedule looks like in regards to the amount of cardio vs strength training I do, what my routines are, etc. (really just 3-4 Instagram requests) so I thought I would combine a full day of eating with a week of my workouts! Here goes…(this is from Tuesday!)
I actually always start my day with 2 capfuls of raw apple cider vinegar + cinnamon + 1/2 packet stevia + 16 oz of water and chug it down. Then I have a cup of decaf coffee with vanilla stevia and unsweetened almond or cashew milk.
breakfast (after ACV drink and coffee)//frozen and reheated greek yogurt blueberry waffles with coconut butter and zero calorie maple syrup.
lunch//the rest of a TastyRoots Fiesta Bowl (topped with an egg + 2 egg white scramble). I will do a full review of TastyRoots (meal prep service and health food restaurant) later this week!! So so good.
I also had a couple forkfuls of this lovely stuff:
Anyone else totally on a sauerkraut kick? Probiotics are definitely something I have been working on getting more in my diet. Although these are like $8 a jar so I think I need to start fermenting my own!!
afternoon snack and preworkout meal//a full cup of Chobani greek yogurt with Kashi Sweet Potato Sunshine cereal (x 2), cinnamon, and fresh raspberries (x 2)
GET THIS CEREAL NOW (you can thank me later):
Later on my boyfriend and I (can I call him Z?) went to an apartment networking event and dinner after a workout and shower (I actually didn’t drink that beer tonight though!). I got the broccoli, brown rice, and grilled salmon ‘bowl’ and had some of the spicy tuna sushi roll – super simple and satisfying!
Ate again before bed – this was around 11 pm and is a recipe creation I’m still working on: a healthy chocolate cupcake with chocolate PB frosting and Trader Joe’s chocolate chunks. Also had a raw cookie dough bite from TastyRoots AND a brown rice cake with peanut butter.

My recent training has varied a little bit due to falling in love with a new form of fitness: BOXING! The gym I go to has an amazing boxing program and I’m completely on board. I typically try to go to the hour long class 2 times per week. It’s a high intensity class boxing on a bag and also working with the instructor on combinations and hitting ‘mitts’. There’s also a cardio round and agility work. It’s super challenging and I am always DRENCHED in sweat after. I’ve loved the change. Below you can see my full week of workouts (from last Monday to Sunday)!
Squats 4 x 10
Dumbell Deadlifts 3 x 12
Step-ups 3 x 20
Hip-thrusters 4 x 10
Tuesday: Upper body + abs
Thursday: 60 minute boxing
Friday: Full body circuit (completed the circuit 4 times):
Single-leg deadlifts x 12 each leg
Pull-ups x 10
Squat and press x 15
Pushups x 20
Saturday: 60 minute boxing
Sunday: Rest day + a short outdoor walk along the bay because it was a beautiful day
As you can see I am still trying to fit in lifting 2-3 times per week along with boxing 2 times per week and another class or fun workout 1 time per week. I have also just enjoyed getting outside and walking Lifting will always be my passion but I love the variety as well.
Any other workouts that have piqued your interest? Anything new I should try out?
