This week, I made a giant batch of Veggie Quinoa Salad. It was intended for lunch, but I found myself eating it for breakfast instead! I quickly threw an egg on top and love a breakfast that comes together in two minutes flat.
I shared the recipe for Breakfast Quinoa Salad here!
Besides getting inspired in the kitchen again, I’m finding myself trying all sorts of cross training lately.
I got HIIT cardio in on Saturday and kick-boxing on Sunday. I even broke a board!
When they announced what we were doing, I was initially terrified. But I knew it was largely mental. If I went up determined to break it, it would break. It helped that we wrote our barrier on the board… limits, fear and injury were on mine and I smashed through it. It. Felt. Amazing.
Then on Monday, I took advantage of a free trial at a local gym to have access to a pool again. The plan was to aqua jog for 45 minutes or so, but I did one lap and called it. Instead, I saw a mile and felt almost as accomplished as a good run.
I didn’t understand why I was barely moving when I tried to jog in the water and what I was doing wrong. I also didn’t feel like it was giving my feet any relief. I came home and watched several ‘how to’ videos and realized I probably need to find deep water. So maybe I’ll be doing some aqua jogging at the pool this summer while my kids swim.
The 3-4 foot water wasn’t cutting it for me, although you can aqua jog in that depth as well.
What’s next? I think I’m going to get to the pool as much as I can before my free membership runs out, and then continue with a mix of elliptical, bike, strength and swimming for a few more weeks.
Have you tried aqua jogging? In normal or deep water?
Does your breakfast consist of traditional morning foods, or do you like to step outside the box?
