It is only the beginning..

hey guys! I took a little hiatus for a few days in trade for a little extra time with the fam! We spent the weekend at the pool.
This morning marks the first day of GPP RX + week. RX + week is our “hell week.” It is a week of 2 a-day workouts. We also follow a nutrition plan that was designed by our coach. It is pretty much going to be a good challenge for me. 2 a-day workouts plus the classes I’m teaching this week. It’s a guaranteed sore maker week for sure.
This morning after workout #1, I came home to enjoy a protein shake and plan my week out. I am having to plan on mostly AM back to back workouts due to work, kids, play time, husbands gym time, etc.

I haven’t done an early early workout in quite a while… Now that the Olympics are over I may get to bed at a decent time. I also may sneak in a nap during the twins nap during the day. Rest and recovery is crucial this week and I’m planning on staying on top of it.

In the mix:
  • 1 Cup Silk Almond milk
  • 1 scoop plant fusion Chocolate
  • 1 C. Frozen Berries (Cherries, pom arils, raspberries, blueberries & strawberries)
  • 3 C. Spinach
  • Ice
Lunch came quick today, after a quick trip to Costco for a few groceries for the week. Which I got sucked into a VitaMixer demonstration.. (Now have pre-settings). At least the kids and I got a few different sample smoothies for standing through the 10 min. demo.
I welcomed this full blown salad.

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Green beans
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • Walden Farm dressing- Honey Dijon

I’m really going to miss fresh veggies straight from the garden once winter hits around here. They bring a salad to a whole new level. They are full of so much flavor and add just the perfect of amount of crisp and crunch to the bowl.
I taught body attack (which was a complete sweat fest). I’m sure the air conditioning was not on in that room cause it felt like it was 100 degrees in the room.
I had an hour before I had to be at RX + Workout #2.
And just so you know.. I’m not the only crazy..

Day one is done and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the week has in store! I’m off to bed. I’m tired and my 5:30 am alarm is not to far off. Winking smileRumor has it the RX+ workout has something to do with bleachers..

  3. You are a rockstar Candice! I have such a crazy week this week, and I worked myself up so much about the Rx week, that I decided to just stick with my regular zumba, and hit a GPP workout when I could. I love the last hell week, and am bummed I couldn't commit this time. LOVE hearing all about it here, on janetha's blog and on the GPP blog! Keep it up!
