Fitness Friday IV

*original post

Time for another edition of Fitness Friday! I mentioned in a recent activewear post and have been documenting on Insta stories, that I have switched my workout routine from evenings to mornings. After about 2 weeks, I am really happy that I decided to give it a try! I feel much more alert when I go into work in the mornings, and have a lot more time in the evenings. Although, I have noticed there is not as much class availability as there is in the evenings. So, I think I am going to work out a routine of mostly morning classes, with a few classes still in the evenings. I have also decided that I am going to try to add in a little bit of cardio. I have not been able to make a habit of going to many cardio based classes, but I think I'm up for the challenge!

Even though I was out of town for 5 days, I managed to get 21 workouts in! If you're in Charlotte you can get exclusive discounts to these studios (and many more) by joining SweatNET Charlotte!

  1. I have gotten into a habit of making some of the recipes I have mentioned in previous Fitness Friday posts (here are: February, March, April). Especially the oatmeal energy bites as a snack, and matcha smoothies after workouts. So the only new one I tried this month was this chicken avocado burrito recipe. It was fairly easy to make, and I liked them enough to make them a few times! The recipe makes 4 servings. So I have been halving the recipe, and saving the second serving for another day that week.
  2. I have also made some progress in making the habit of eating more fruit. As I have mentioned in recent posts, it doesn't seem like much, but it is big progress for me! I have just been buying more fruit in general, and I usually have a mandarin orange at my desk as my afternoon work snack. I also have been loving a dried berry blend that has raisins and dried cranberries, blueberries, and cherries.
  3. Another new food habit I have been trying is adding avocado to a regular favorite of mine, scrambled eggs with a little bit of feta cheese. I typically always have them in my fridge, so it is my go-to food when I don't have many groceries around!

Thanks for reading!
