We have been feeling great in our #purelyfitlife #purelypower program workouts! Purely Fitters we love hearing from you guys and that you are enjoying them! Week 5 starts Monday get excited!!
Enjoyed a great 10 minute plank workout followed by a 10 minute HIIT sprint/walk interval.
Love our walks outside, especially with little crazy JAX.
Walks are the perfect balance to our intense workouts and a great way to unwind! Do you like walking?
A few highlights we enjoyed this past week.
Same green juice every morning: kale, romaine, cucumber, fresh parsley, mint or basil, fresh ginger and lime or lemon.
Juice with a mix of salmon and eggs with coconut oil.
Eggs with local sausage and a slice of our new egg-free grain-free banana bread (recipe coming soon). The loaf is almost gone, sooo good.
We made perfect fit protein pancakes with coconut oil as a lovely snack.
Plantain with fermented veggies, coconut oil, tahini with local grass-fed burger.
Another new recipe that will be coming soon. Another yummy one.
We have been enjoying our typical simple meals.
Nothing new to report there, just enjoying every meal we eat.
Enjoyed making things in the kitchen this past week
mmm cannot wait to share this recipe…although we plan to make it one more time this weekend.
Glad you all have been loving our plantain donut recipe.
And we love our marshmallows. A perfect snack!
Earlier this week when Michelle shared her tahini coconut oil snack video on instagram, she was surprised by the reaction she got when she mentioned that she was eating more on her rest day.
Both of us thought that was something interesting to think about as we have read different things regarding how much to eat on workout days and non workout days.
1. Eat less the days you don’t workout.
2. Eat more to recover on rest days.
3. Eat the same amount on rest as you would on training days.
As you can see very different takes. If you GOOGLE these topics you will probably see lots of different articles, research, and opinions on the matter.
Where do we stand?
Not really sure. Like with everything else, it will vary on each person. What your goals are, how hard are you training, etc. In addition it probably is different each rest day too. One thing we notice personally. Some of our days off we have a HUGE appetite, just like we did this past week. As other rest days we have a little appetite. It just goes to show you that you truly have to listen to YOUR body, not what others say , what a book says, or what a sheet of paper may say. Your body knows best, the key is learning to read it and understand what your body is telling you.
We usually find ourselves eating almost the same on rest days and training days. But again there will be days we eat more or less depending on our schedule and appetite. It varies.
