Okay, NOW it’s fall!

23 Sep

Happy first day of fall!!

I have not been nearly as productive as I was hoping the past couple days but instead of dwelling on that I’m going to focus on what I have accomplished. For example, I had an extra long physical therapy session this morning and got a great leg workout in. Plus I realized I’d already had two four pumpkin spice lattes this month and that habit needed to stop. So after my workout I made a real pumpkin spice protein shake… much healthier and more satisfying.

First things first, here’s the leg workout:

  • Walking lunges x2
  • Side shuffles

3 sets:

  • 20 Wood-chop sumo squats (Stand with your feet wide apart, toes turned slightly out. Hold the dumbbell or medicine ball with both hands in front of you arms straight down. Squat as low as you can and then as you jump your feet together, swing your arms (keeping them straight and abs tight) above your head. As you pop back into a squat, lower your arms)
  • 20 lunges with medicine ball rotation

2 sets:

  • 12 straight leg deadlifts
  • 20 squats with ball toss

2 sets:

  • 20 hamstring curls
  • 20 quadricep pull-ins on medicine ball

  • 1 C Almond Milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3 tbsp pure pumpkin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp all-spice
  • pinch of clove

Blend until smooth and enjoy!
