Hi there! Happy Monday 🙂 Today I want to talk about a new product I just discovered. Nektar Naturals makes these honey granules that are pretty “sweet”- pun intended. Not only is it a healthy, gluten-free, GMO free product, but it’s so great and convenient that they’re crystals, so you don’t get the sticky mess that usually comes along with honey.
I love having a slice of gluten-free toast with almond butter and a few drizzles of honey as a snack- but I looooved being able to sprinkle some honey crystals instead. No more honey dripping everywhere! I received a free bottle from Nektar Naturals to review but you can pick one up at Whole Foods, Kings or Shop Rite among other health food stores. Give it a try. They have some great recipes in their website too: http://www.nektarnaturals.com.
I’m currently 35 weeks- yay! Almost there 🙂 I’ve been feeling great physically, still working out a few days a week doing what I can. Mentally though…I gotta say I have a bad case of “pregnancy brain.” 😁
This was one of my WODs last week. Check it out:
50 ball slams (10# ball)
40 box step-ups
40 side bends (15# DB)
30 ring rows
30 pregnant burpees
20 squat cleans (15# DB)
20 push jerks (DB)
10 single arm snatches (DB)
10 box push ups
I kept the weights light and kept my focus on form. It was challenging but I felt awesome afterwards. My goal is to workout at least 3 times a week for the next few weeks. And I’m already thinking of possible races to run in the spring 😊
Happy Sunday! This little big bump is now 30 weeks-yay! It’s been a long week of working, learning and not a lot of working out- but that’s ok! My husband and I took a CPR class earlier in the week and yesterday we went to an all-day childbirth class at the hospital where I’ll be delivering Baby Hicky. They definitely helped in making me feel a little more reassured that I can do this 🙂
I did make it to CrossFit on Wednesday and did the following WODs:
5 rounds of:
10 single arm DB snatches (15#)
100 meter row
Then after a break, 5 rounds of:
12 ring rows
12 box dips
10 back lunges (45#)
I’m now about to get ready to go celebrate my cousin’s birthday so I think I’ll take another day off from working out…or I might do a quick 10 minute circuit before I jump in the shower 🙂
If you follow me on Instsgram, you know I looove my smoothies. I’ve been on the hunt for a while for a protein powder that wasn’t full of artificial ingredients and sweeteners and a bunch of…crap. Recently I came across About Time and they were kind enough to send me some of their products to try.
This morning I made a smoothie with their vanilla whey powder. I added berries, mango, almond milk and a little Greek yogurt. It was delicious!
I’m looking forward to trying out the rest of the products they carry- they even have Paleo snack bars!
I love that their products are gluten free, lactose free and non-GMO. And they have vegan options.
I have a 25% off coupon code for my readers who’d like to try it. Go to About Time and enter my code FASTINISTA25 at checkout. Did I mention they have a pumpkin flavor? Yum!
I’ll be heading out to CrossFit in a bit and modifying the WOD below:
I’ll be doing the rower instead of running, much, much lighter back squats, ball slams instead of wall balls, knee push-ups and much lighter OH walk.
What are guys having for breakfast this lovely Sunday morning? Any workout plans?
