My Tuesday night home workout was a little different this week. This time Michael and I worked out together. As per usual, Fat Kitty supervised all that was happening in his Kingdom.
Michael was on the bike trainer first. While he did his cycling workout I warmed up for 30 minutes with the Nike Training App. It was nice having a partner to workout with to pass the time, but it was also a bit awkward having someone watch you and comment as you do jumping jacks. 😉
This was the first time I ever did the “Plank Row to Rotation” and I was able to do it! Michael was pretty impressed and I was very excited I was able to even do it. The Modified Burpee was much better than the regular Burpee.
I must say that while the Nike App is a great workout, I’m ready to take my fitness outside. I’m sick of being in the house and in the gym! I’m looking forward to the weather improving so I can get off the bike trainer and ride outside.
I worked up a sweat but didn’t burn as many calories with this one compared to others.
Calories Burned: 585
The steak was close to one serving. I measured using my fist and it was just a tad larger than my fist. I’d estimate it was 1.25 servings. Honestly, more than one serving of a nice steak is not an issue for me because it’s good protein that my body needs.
One of my favorite things is Goddess Dressing. It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about it. I love putting a little bit of it on my veggies. Not all steamed veggies need dressing but sometimes I just want the flavor. I prefer Trader Joe’s version to Annie’s. It tastes much better to me and is 120 calories a serving.
Thanks again for all the suggestions on my post about crashing. There were a lot of insightful comments and suggestions. The general consensus was that I should try nuts and dried fruit after working out. I will pick up some apricots or something the next time I’m at Trader Joe’s and see if that helps. I’m also going to try Gatorade.
QUESTION: How much fiber to you eat? How do you get your fiber? And do you like working out with your significant other?
