Fit is the New Black has a new column!!! I get a lot of questions via my Tumblr about fitness and diet. I’ve always made it clear that I am not a licensed professional, but I think people come to me because they know I’m living the stuff I talk about and that I give honest and personal answers, oppose to the tired ‘eat a balanced diet and be active’ thing so many sites and magazines give. I use to post my workout and diet every day on Tumblr, but after awhile I got tired of that. Seriously, my routine and diet can stay the same for months. Who wants to read about me running 4 miles again?
Well, apparently some of you do, which is why I’ve created the page ‘Workout With Me & Eat With me’. It will be updated 1-2 times a week, appearing as an additional feature post, as well as a link to the post in its allotted section (on site NOT TUmblr).
The purpose of the section? Just to give a little glimpse into what I do on a regular basis; homemade fitspiration, if you will. I won’t post every single workout or meal I have, but like I said, you’ll get a glimpse in the day of my life. Please share your workout routines with me, questions, and anything else you feel moved to do. The whole point of this site is to build a community of fitness and health enthusiast. Now, without further ado, here are some of the workouts and eats I’ve been enjoying the last few days.
Sunday’s workout consisted of 30 minutes on the elliptical, doing a series of hills with resistance. I also covered 4 miles on the treadmill, jogging and walking. To top it off I performed back extensions with 60 pounds, as well as leg extensions with 10 pounds. I filled my day with protein drinks and smoothies, started with a protein shake of vegan protein, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla vegan protein powder, 1/2 a scoop of muscle milk, flax seed, honey and ice. Later I had a fruit smoothie made with a packet from the Kaeng Raeng cleanse I did, extra strawberries, 2 TBS of vegan protein powder, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, and some pineapple juice. I finished the night off with a Cesar salad at the diner.
Top photo is of me doing doing leg lifts to work my lower abs. I hate them but they work! If doing them on the floor hurts your back or bum, try doing them on an abench or mat. Second photo is a pre-workout protein shake, made with vanilla vegan protein powder, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 2 TBS of chocolate muscle milk, PB and a ton of ice. I’ve been on a kale chip kick recently, hence the third photo. Someone tell me why I pay $8 bucks for these things when I can make them myself. Correction, my mom, a fabulous cook, can make them for me. Please ignore the random shot of my nails. I take photos of them compulsively. The last photo is another liquid creating-blueberries, banana, pineapple juice, and protein powder. Yum, yum, yum. Hope you liked the first edition of Eat & Workout with me. Let me know what workouts you are doing. Tell me what you’re eating. I’m weird. These things really interest me.
