Good morning you all! Today I am halfway into week 2 of summer shredding. It is currently 5:15 am and I am sitting here working on coffee no.1. I have a fairly open morning, so I wanted to share my day (yesterday) with you all before jumping into today’s post.
On Tuesdays, I coach the first three classes of the day at F45, which makes for an extremely early wake-up call! I was up at 3am and out the door by 4. The morning started off great! My classes were loaded, the energy was hyped, and it was a great way to kickstart the day.
By the time I left the gym, I was beyond hungry! As soon as I got home I whipped myself up some breakfast: riced cauliflower mixed with shredded potatoes and bell peppers, sautéed in olive oil- a side of break free liquid eggs topped with Texas Pete, a nibble of avocado- and (of course) my favorite mug filled with black coffee.
Most of my day was spent online getting work done. I added a couple of new clients (which is always great), and caught up on some reading.
Mid-morning I had myself a big bowl of proats (protein and oatmeal) topped with apples, blueberries, almonds, and cinnamon.
Jack and I spent lunch in the backyard so we could soak up some sun. I had zoodles topped with organic pasta sauce, chickpeas and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese- a side of mini bell peppers grilled in olive oil- and I had a protein shake as well, but that would have ruined my Instagram worthy food photo!(ig:tiffanymitchellmull/tiffanydietetics)
I took the day off from training yesterday due to such an early wakeup call, so the remainder of the evening I piled up and watched Shark Tank. Due to taking the day off, I had a fairly light afternoon snack: Lettuce wraps made filled with zucchini noodles, chickpeas, yogurt-based ranch dressing, hummus, and crushed red pepper.
I ended yesterday with my favorite tacos (hello, taco Tuesday): Yellow corn tortillas topped with hummus, grilled shrimp, sautéed onions and bell peppers, shredded lettuce and topped with freshly squeezed lemon.
So now, fast forward to the rest of today.
Once I finished up my coffee, I got in a quick 20-minute yoga session. After, I had breakfast which I believe looks almost identical to yesterdays.
Just after breakfast Jack and I were out for our typical neighborhood stroll.
A quick 15-minute stroll was a perfect warm-up for today’s upper body workout, which focused mainly on rear delts.
Following my workout, I had my usual post-workout smoothie made up of coconut water, greek yogurt, almond milk, and banana. Soon after I had lunch: a veggie patty, zucchini noodles, broccoli and carrots with a side of yogurt-based ranch dressing.
Just before heading out to the gym to coach my afternoon class I had a bowl of quick oats mixed with protein powder.
On Wednesday, F45’s training is high-intensity cardio. Although I am not taking the class, I am constantly jumping in with members knocking out sets just to keep them pushing- so my calorie burn can get quite high. Today’s total caloric output was 365 calories! So, since Wesley was off early today, I skipped the cardio and headed straight home after coaching. I scooped up some sushi (raw salmon and tuna rolled with avocado and white rice), and the evening will be spent piled up watching Hulu.
So far, week 2 of summer shredding is off to a great start!
