Day #2: 30 Day Challenge

DSC_0009 Today makes #2 of the 30 day BodyRock Challenge and it was an awesome day! I got an amazing Kettlebell workout in as well as sticking to the meal plan-with a few twists of my own! Though at nearly 38 weeks pregnant, when the cravings tend to come rolling in, I quickly divert my attention elsewhere. This was my meal plan for the day:

Breakfast: I made my infamous banana nut oatmeal this morning using 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 banana, 1/4 cup pecans, & 1/2 cup Almond Breeze Coconut Almond milk. For extra sweetness, I will add one packet of Stevia to the mix and then microwave on high for 2 minutes.

Lunch: Lunch was one filet of baked lemon garlic tilapia on a bed of spinach, drizzled with 1 tbsp of olive oil mixed with fresh juice from half a lemon and some pepper. I added in some sunflower seeds to the salad for added healthy fats/proteins.

Dinner: I made cornish hens tonight for my husband and I, along with some quinoa and a side of sauteed mushrooms.

Snacks: I typically like to snack every 2-3 hours or so to keep my metabolism going.  My snacks today were one cup of Greek yogurt mixed with 1 tbsp of peanut or almond butter, a bowl of strawberries, and a kale, spinach, & apple smoothie. Before I bedtime if I am still hungry, I will eat a handful of almonds or another tbsp of peanut or almond butter.

I had an amazing workout session with my Kettlebell today. I used a 26lb kettlebell courtesy of DemonBells which features an adorable Sugar Skull design.  I did a few snatches, squats, and swings that left me feeling a bit sore, but, nevertheless, awesome! I ran for 30 minutes as part of my cardio for the day and cycled for another 30 minutes. Definitely trying to get my workouts in before my son arrives because for a few weeks after his birth, I will have to focus on home workouts and less strenuous exercises.
