stress

Today was the big treadmill stress test.  Unfortunately, I will not have any answers until next week when I have my follow-up appointment with the cardiologist. 

Here are future oranges.  That's right, a beautiful orange grove.

I took these pictures a while back, but thought now was a good time to showcase beautiful Florida orange groves.

Here is one of the interesting finds at the store today.  I was a little more than disappointed with  the Organic Vegan Boca burgers, so I gave these a shot.

Yummy.  So delicious!  Amy’s patty on sandwich rounds, organic ketchup, and spinach.

Cauliflower as a side for lunch.

Another green monster for dinner.  Is it ironic that it is in a coke glass?  Anyway, spinach, frozen banana, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 scoop Chocolate Amazing Grass, and some almond milk to thin.

Some watermelon and cucumber to go with the monster.

Look what I got in the mail! Two home study CEU courses for my personal trainer’s re-cert and In Defense of Foodby Michael Pollan!  I love half.com.

 

 

 

After the stress test, I did what everyone else does…go to the gym.  I did 15 minutes on the eliptical and 15 minutes on the in-line skating simulator.  Then I did a quick upper body workout:

3 sets of 12 reps seated row at 50 lbs

3 sets of 12 reps chest press at 30 lbs

3 sets of 12 reps tricep kickbacks at 10 lbs

3 sets of 12 reps bicep curls at 10 lbs

3 sets 15 reps lower back extension

pushups to failure

Tomorrow begins my last full week of work which means that my cross-country trip to pick up J is fast approaching!

About OneVeganFoodie

Let's see. I am a certified personal trainer (CPT), group exercise instructor, nutritional counselor, and wellness counselor. My training background focuses mainly on getting overweight populations into shape, but I have worked with people wanting to gain strength/healthy weight and agility. I worked with the Army and the Marines for several years before settling into a civilian lifestyle. I'm still adjusting and I really miss it. I also enjoy coaching non-runners through their first running event. I post my workouts on here but remember that you need to seek medical advice prior to starting a new exercise regimine. I also love food. I've been vegetarian for 10 years and 4 of the last years I have been completely vegan. I love food and I love to cook. I follow a strict diet that I do not recommend for everyone, but I really enjoy as it keeps me healthy and helps me to know what is going into my body.
