Outdoor Total Body Workout

What a gorgeous day here in LA! These are the kind of days that really help me to appreciate my blessings. The sun is shinning, my family is healthy, and I’m alive. What more could I need?!

My lovely friend Meg posted this amazing recipe yesterday that I just HAD to try. I altered it a bit, but it’s pretty much the same!

Quinoa Flake Carrot Cake

  • 1/3 C quinoa flakes
  • 1 C almond milk
  • 1/2 C shredded carrots
  • 2 T flaxseeds
  • cinnamon
  • stevia

Topping:

  • 1T cream cheese
  • stevia

Mix together everything but the topping ingredients and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir well. Combine stevia and cream cheese and spread on top

Delicious! Great job on this one Meg. You’re a genius my friend!

Find of the Week
After my breakfast I headed out to do my usual shopping. Check out my finds!

These babies are perfect for my games now that the weather is heating up. Water just isn’t even to get me through a 90 minute hot soccer game!

Each one was only $.99 each. How could I pass those up?!

This HUGE box of cereal (which is one of my favorites!) was also only $1. LOVE!

After unpacking all my groceries I got ready to get my sweat on. The weather was perfect for an outdoor workout, so I grabbed my hat and water bottle and headed to the back yard!

Outdoor Total Bodyweight Workout

Circuit 1:
pushups – 20
walk lunge – 10 each
jump lunge – 30 seconds
REPEAT 3X

Circuit 2:
squat – 20
squat thrusts (a burpee without the pushup or jump!) – 10
burpees – 10
REPEAT 3X

Your booty and legs should be pretty much toast after this! Mine were at least. I then grabbed my soccer ball and did some dribbling and juggling.

Well hello there mini ab definition. It’s nice to see you!

I recovered from my sweaty workout with my usual giant protein smoothie

naner, raspberries, chocolate protein powder, cocoa powder, kale and ice

And now I’m off to get some work done. And by work I mean baking for my co-worker!

Favorite outdoor workout? Playing a sport with friends, bootcamp, or something else?

    I’ve tried the cookie dough in a bowl that people have talked about before, but never carrot cake! Love it!!

    Favorite outdoor workout is easily running. I’m especially loving it since moving to Georgia and getting to run on some fun trails!
