plyo+abs, training, day one success

i thought today was going to be a huge bust because i turned off my 5:15 am alarm and refused to get up for hot yoga.
instead, i made breakfast, wrote that blog, did some much needed reading for school, and contemplated on going to class. had everything ready and didn't go.
say hello to snack number #1:
1 cup nonfat greek yogurt with 1 tbsp honey & 10 almonds.

it's in my to-go stay fit container because i thought i was actually going to go to class. yeah no.
i did go to my human biology lab though! we learned about hormones and what not. oh and contraception even though i could probably tell you everything about that from many years of learning.
when i stop and think about it though, some countries and even schools in our own country don't teach about birth control. everyone should have a right to have knowledge about contraception and effective family planning.

before i went to lab i had this for lunch.
2 cups spinach with a couple mushrooms, diced tomato, and 4 oz grilled chicken topped with 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar. i didn't think i'd like balsamic vinegar plain, but added so much flavor with so little calories and fat like most dressings involve.

when i got home for lab i did a little internet surfing and had snack number 2:
[not pictured] banana w/ 1 tbsp peanut butter and 1 raspberry chobani yogurt.
i thought i was going to head to the gym after that. instead i laid down in my room and passed out for almost 2.5 hours! i couldnt believe it. i guess my body needed that sleep.
i woke up frantically and got ready and headed to the gym i work at.
i did a plyometric and ab circuit (from bess) and that took about 40 minutes and definitely kicked my butt. afterwards i wrote out a 30 min. strength routine that im going to teach thursday and practiced that along with a couple step combinations.

by the time i was done with that i headed home for a late dinner.

1 medium sweet potato, 1/2 cup chickpeas, and 2 cups steamed broccoli drizzled with mustard.

that actually filled me up a lot, but i needed something sweet like usual. (where did this need for sweet come from? i used to never have a sweet tooth!)
i made a "protein" muffin. part of my meal plan is to have a vitatop, but those are so expensive i decided to make my own.

3 tbsp liquid egg whites, 2 tbsp peanut flour, 3 tbsp applesauce(unsweetened), 1 tsp stevia, 1/2 tsp baking powder. microwave for about 3 minutes. topped with 1 tsp of natural pb.
oh my gosh. uh-may-zing.

time for sleep. boot camp again in the morning followed by hot yoga(maybe).
check ya later.
