Vegan Weekened Part 1

Hello

I hope you had a nice weekend. How was the weather where you live? We had a triple digit weekend but that didn’t stop us from going about our usual routine which included some High Intensity Interval training in our garage (aka our home gym) At this point, the temp was 91 degrees so it made for a super intense workout.

The HIIT workout was only 15 minutes in duration but felt like 30 with the short rest (15 seconds) and hot temp. It was one of those workouts that made you feel proud when you finish. Like, how did I just do that?

Following the workout we took our dog on a walk in the heat. Are we crazy? Sometimes. When we got back I needed fuel ASAP so I made this smoothie which made me feel alive again.

Ingredients:

1 Frozen Banana

1 Fuji Apple

1 celery stalk

1 handful of spinach

16 ounces of Almond Milk

1 scoop of Sunwarrior Protein

Blend all ingredients and Enjoy.

Note: I made a larger than normal serving to share with my husband and son.

One more thing, its only on weekends that I have patience to use this many ingredients. During the week, its two ingredients max because its much more enjoyable when it’s simple right?

People sometimes say I’m crazy for working out in hot temps but I always feel looser and more efficient when its hot. Maybe not 100 degrees, but 80 always feels good. How do you feel about working out in the heat?

Tomorrow I’ll be back with what I made for dinner.

Have a great day!

Marlene
