The Clean Slate Day 4

1

2014/01/11 by nikkiledford

The theme of Day 4 definitely had to be exercise.  I casually agreed to visit a local crossfit that morning and then realized I also had a Lean and Lovely training day with my husband later in the morning. So I did both. And yoga in the park. Needless to say, I was very tired (and hungry!) by the end of the day.

Left Coast Crossfit was my first stop in the morning. We had an excellent workout that consisted of double under practice (jumping rope, but with the rope passing 2x on each jump) and a metabolic workout listed below:

40 Overhead lunges with a 25# plate
30 toes to bar
20 deadlift burpees with 65#
10 Bear Complex (power clean, thruster, back squat, push jerk) with 65#

Like I said… I was tired. Not long after this did I head up to Dana Point for some yoga with friends.

Perfect morning for some outside stretching

After yoga, I drove straight over to Training Camp, for my kettlebell workout with my guy. It was relatively short… 3 rounds of kb deadlifts, cleans, squats, and swings with a sprint in-between.

In all this running around, I was certainly hungry by the time I got to work…. and pretty much hungry the rest of the day. I kept it clean though!

Clean Eats

Breakfast (post-crossfit): scrambled eggs, pico de gallo, roasted potatoes, and sautéed peppers from whole foods

Lunch (post-kettlebells): Hardcore Juice (greens with apple) from Thrive and 1 c. butternut squash, a hard boiled egg, and a chicken thigh smothered in Hemp Pesto

Snack: a customized Paleo Acai Bowl with hemp seeds and coconut flakes instead of granola (skipped the honey and dates too, added maca and kale)

Dinner: A gigantic plate of salad, grilled yams, and a burger

Unfortunately, I failed to do my meditation this morning…

but there’s always tomorrow!

LAME DIET ADVICE // They say you're not supposed to eat carbs and fat together...🤔...🤣...🙄
#idowhatiwant #thisissounhealthy #paleosnackideas I'm not that big of a coffee snob, but I know good coffee when I taste it. ☕️❤️#traderjoesalumni #traderjoesnewproduct

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown
