And its 8w 4d – Can’t miss a beat!

I feel like my world revolves around the gym and food right now, and really it kind of does. But there is more to life, and I know that. Monday was a prime example of how days go sideways and sometimes you just have to roll with it.

The morning routine at our house right now is gym for me first, alarm goes off at 4:10am and I get up to get ready and be at the gym (sometimes pounding at the door) at 5am. I have to be home by 7am for my husband to switch with me – 2 year olds can’t watch themselves – and then I try to shower and get ready before the rugrat gets up around 7:30am.

Monday morning I could only do my 1hr cardio because I needed to be at work early to leave early and pick up my car getting fixed. GET ON WITH IT ALREADY RIGHT!??! Well that left me to do my weights at night.

I got all my meals in during the day, had a shake when I got home, picked up my car, had supper and then headed to the gym around 8:00pm. This way the kid is down and hubby can relax. But holy cow I forgot that the gym turns into a night club after dark! I was supposed to do legs but heck no was I going to attempt that. I ended up securing a cable and went to work on back and biceps.

I managed to do;

Straight Arm Lat Pulldown

Lat Pulldown (wide grip)

Cable Double Bicep

Bicep Cable Curl

Seated Row

Barbell Curl

I was home by about 9pm and had my last meal of the day – protein and water, made into a cake. I don’t think I fell asleep until past 10pm which is super late for me! So, 4:10am Tuesday morning was SUPER early.

Egg White Muffins

What is another word for “Muffins” when referring to a savoury dish? My Mom would like me to call them “Rounds” but I am not sure I like that?!? Ideas?

On the Jamie Eason Livefit program the evening meal is 5-6 egg whites and vegetable. So, to make life easy I put in the food processor – spinach, brussel sprouts, mushrooms and parsley.

Then I put a couple of heaping tablespoons into a greased muffin tin and added 1-1/2 Tbsp of Egg White (because that is all that fit!)

I put them in the oven for about 15 mins at 350F.

And the Egg White MUFFIN was born! They are pretty tasty, I think next time I will add onion to my mixture of vegetables to give a little bit more flavour and moisture. Enjoy!

Turkey Muffins

I made Jamie Eason’s Turkey Muffins for my program and they turned our great! A little bigger than expected considering I am supposed to have 4 of them per day! I used my same vegetable mix that I used in my¬†Egg White Muffins

I also made a second batch to put into the freezer so that I just have to defrost and cook. We are all about easy around here!
