Days 9 - 11

YAY!

Day 9 - Today's workout was a 45-minute  Strength & Endurance Power Circuit.

Which basically means, light weight, lots of reps and you don't stop moving! Topped it off with some gut and butt and for 30 minutes and felt AH-MAZING!

I put on an old pair of shorts (sowry Boston!) and they used to be a bit (ahem) uncomfortable but today, perfecto! What you must realize when cutting out processed foods is that a looser waistband and a lower number on the scale is NOT all fat loss.... However, after 9 days of diligence, clean eating, exercise and zen, some of it most definitely is!

Breakfast - 2 Eggs Over Easy with some sauteed broccoli, red onions and green peppers (about 3/4 cup)

Snack - 1/2 Peanut Butter Banana Pancake

Lunch - Thai Laab Lettuce Wraps (sans lettuce because I was out. Subbed in same veggies as breakfast!)

1/2 cup Baby Bok Choy and....

I had my Snack (melon with 1 piece Prosciutto  and a cup of cherries) with lunch because I was super hungry today from the butt kicker workout!

Thai Laab Lettuce Wraps (pictured)

1 pound 99% lean ground turkey
1 large scallion or green garlic sliced into thin rings
2 small purple turnip sliced into thin  1/2 strips

2 tbsp. fish sauce

Day 11 - Taught a 55-min cycle in the morning and did a heavy lift superset with 2 of my favorite clients in the afternoon (K and H - this means you guys!). Virtual training is a ton of fun plus I think I'm working out more than ever as I demo each exercise as well as verbally cue and coach to keep my clients in perfect form!

Post-gym I had a personal appointment so I went to Whole Foods and grabbed 2 hard-boiled eggs, a small "garlicky kale salad" and an iced milk almond Matcha Green tea I.e. "Breakfast"

I actually wrote an article on Matcha Tea for Boston Magazine a few years back. Check out the attached link!

Snack - I skipped my first snack today as I ate a late breakfast and wasn't hungry. As long as we don't go more than 5 hours in between meals/food consumption our blood sugar stays stable which is KEY! It's when we exceed 5ish hours that our metabolism and body start to get upset at us. Hit me up at susan@susanreardonwellness.com if you want to learn more about this.

Lunch - Leftover meatballs and zoodles

Snack 2 - REBOOT Strawbana Smoothie  

Dinner - REBOOT Leftover Lettuce Wraps BUT this time I had lettuce!
