Hey there! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty laid back. Saturday was quiet and Steve and I had some training programs and meal plans to write up so we got that done and then finally watched the Wolf of Wall Street. Sunday had some more work thrown in but we also got to enjoy a basketball game and dinner with my future in-laws.

With last week being my first week of my new training program I experienced longer lasting/increased DOMS and I kinda love it.  I’m back to upper/lower splits and still training 6 days a week. I’ll get more into my training in another post but here are some fun videos of what I’ve been up to (If you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen these):

Some more of yesterday's workout – eccentric Romanian deadlifts. My hammies are definitely feeling these today.

Some eccentric bench from my workout today – 5 sets of 4 at 100lbs. Happy with how good everything is feeling on my new program.

Like I said, I’ve been sore almost every single day but I love switching things up and challenging myself. I also enjoyed lots of delicious food last week:

I also had a food fail when I dropped my bowl of popcorn….

so upsetting

 

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge after dinner snacker (especially since I’m carb backloading). Back in the day that meant I would eat a whole sleeve of crackers with jam, but today I try and make decisions that are in line with my goals. Here are some of my favourite after dinner snacks that won’t weigh you down:

 

Apple with Cinnamon

I love to stuff these with fruit or Greek yogurt.

 

These are some of my favourite things to snack on after dinner, hopefully they give you some ideas of your own.

 

I’m off to work for a very busy day, hope you have a good one!
