So this weekend was a pretty fun one in my books…Mike and I didn’t really have any strict plans but it turned out to be a packed weekend with lots of yummy and mostly (cough cough) healthy foods, drinks, and friends!
Friday was an awesome band and some delish Mexican food (after a killer double workout it was very tasty to fuel up) plus it’s pretty easy to eat healthy at those restaurants! Here was my workout today >http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/jamie-eason-livefit-trainer-phase-2-day-33.html
I am however supplementing the cardio with the insanity workouts! Also, on a side note I found the band for our someday wedding! Check them out > Oracle Band (http://www.facebook.com/OracleBand?ref=ts&fref=ts)-- They are a really fun cover band so be sure to give them a like!
And Saturday was wonderful…I just love fall and the cooler weather so we decided with October and my favorite holiday approaching it was sooo time for some pumpkins and festive deco in our house! And it just so happened my best friend and her boyfriend just moved to the area (YAYA!) so we went to pick some pumpkins and dinner! It is always soo great to catch up and I was even able to eat clean while out…with the exception of the white rice but hey no one is perfect!
Not sure how things work for you guys at your house but Sundays are usually our chill/rest from workouts, clean, and prep for the week ahead days and we did do someof that hahaha…but here comes the newest love SUSHI! I have tried it before but was not nearly in love with it like I was this weekend! Ahhh I am craving it just thinking about it! So I ended up trying a whole bunch of rolls from the traditional spicy tuna, veggie, rainbow, salmon, and tempura to some specialty rolls with…get this EEL! I know I know but it was sooo good!
So some healthy sushi ideas:
~go for sashimi if you can handle the just flesh
~Avoid the spicy mayo (I know it is tasty but so not good for you!)
~Tempura anything= fried
~Go for brown rice instead of white
~Low sodium soy sauce is a must!
~ Try cucumber wraps in place of seaweed and rice if you'd like
~Opt for high protein rolls like salmon and tuna versus eel, octopus, etc.
Also, with October here I felt like it was time for some new goals so here they are!
