How Amazing 7.23.18

by | Jul 23, 2018 | Blog

Earlier today I announced that I’m starting a new blog series. Make sure you read what it is and why I’m doing it. Seriously – that part is important. It will take you 30 second. Read it now if you haven’t already.

My goal is to see just how amazing I can feel if I do everything as close to “best for me” as possible. I didn’t decide on this initiative until a few hours into the morning so the first few hours of this day definitely don’t reflect my very best.

5am: Wake up. Coffee (black). Start responding to emails and doing morning work.

6:30 – 8am: Gym for workout #1 (this includes drive time)

  • Crossover Symmetry for shoulder stability
  • Shoulder strength warm-ups
  • Lacrosse ball muscle work
  • Rowing warmup
  • 5x200m run (approximately equal work/rest intervals)
  • 100m sled push
  • 5 min bike cool down

8 – 9am: breakfast (pic posted on my Instagram stories)

  • Omelet with avocado, sprouts & tomato
  • Iced coffee (black)
  • Water

9 – 10am: Work

10am: 20 minute Transcendental Meditation

10:30 – 12pm: Work (drank 1 liter of water)

12 – 1:00pm: Walk, stretch and mobility with lacrosse ball

1 – 2:00pm: Protein shake & meditate (20 minutes Transcendental Meditation)

I’m not much of a protein shake drinker. This might have been the first protein shake I’ve had in a few months. I did a full episode on protein shakes to explain why, but the bottom line is that I prefer to eat my food than drink it and I prefer whole foods to processed ones. With that said, I haven’t been to the grocery store for veggies and it’s super hot & humid here today, so a shake sounded nice. Into my Vitamix I put:

  • 1 inch fresh ginger (I had to have ginger today since today’s podcast is all about it)
  • 1 cup cashew milk
  • 1 cup frozen cauliflower rice (in lieu of ice – it has no flavor)
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder

2 – 3:00pm: Work

3 – 5:00pm: Workout #2 (includes drive time)

  • Crossover Symmetry
  • Foam rolling
  • Build to a heavy single rep bench press (I hit a PR today!)
  • METCON: 5 rounds for time of
    • 1 minute max rep bench press
    • 1 min max rep box jumps
  • Crossover Symmetry to recover

5 – 7:00pm cook dinner, eat, read (pic on Instagram)

  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 1 ear corn on the cob
  • 2 grilled chicken thighs

I made a great marinade for the chicken and added fresh ginger! It’s kind of an asian-style marinade and so delicious!

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, minced

7 – 9pm Back to back live webinars for my summer clients

9:30pm Bedtime

I feel pretty good about this day and I’m excited to continue to see just how amazing I can feel each day! More to come tomorrow!
