Day 11 of 21 Day Challenge: More Guilt-Free Baking

In an attempt to empty out my fridge a bit, and use up ingredients before they go bad, today will be another guilt-free baking day. Wasn’t sure what I should make, but I need to use up canned pumpkin, coconut milk, cauliflower, and avocado – so, after scouring the recipes from the definitive nutrition guide, as well my own recipes I decided to make: -       cauliflower pizza crust -       cauliflower tater tots -       peanut butter pumpkin muffins (#skinnyrecipe to come) -       4 ingredient peppermint patties (not actually using up anything I need to, but they just look sooooo tasty) WORKOUT: Video used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0s-Oj9DmS1g&feature=youtu.be Equipment needed: 1_34_1_1024x1024 Click here to get your Hiit bar Timer_FB Click here to get your Hiit timer Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 1.41.44 PM And check out the Challenge Guide and Burnout Workouts here  

Workout breakdown:

7 exercises, 2 times through

50 seconds work – 10 seconds rest

1)   Push-ups

2)   Bicep curls

3)   Hammer curls

4)   Jump squats

5)   Front raise flys + bent over flys

6)   Tricep kick backs

7)   V abs

Modifications:
  • For the push-ups I found going side to side was a bit tough, so I did have to go to my knees for a bit
  • My ankles were not feeling the jump squats today so I just did regular old squats, but kept the weight.
  • For the tricep kick back Sean goes over the possible modifications the second round through, he mentions diamond push-ups or tricep dips on your equalizer. I stuck with the original method, but to work my legs and balance a bit more I did the tricep kick backs in a lunge.
  • Not a modification, but it’s nice that the V abs were the last exercise, because after going hard with abs I like to collapse down and do a full body stretch, very gratifying.
FOOD: For breakfast I had pumpkin buckwheat pancakes again, with a bit of maple syrup. For lunch I had salad with Ciara Foy’s “dressing for everything” (recipe found in the definitive nutrition guide), as well as a peanut butter pumpkin muffin.

My dessert was one of the peppermint patties, and oh man did they turn out well. THOUGHTS:
  • My abs have that really great burn feeling, you know the one you get the day after a good workout, when you’re not exactly in pain, but you’re just made very aware of/can really feel the part of your body that you worked out. I love that feeling.
