Played an hour tennis with Georg today and I finally moved a little better on the court! I have been feeling off every time I have played this summer, probably just because I haven’t played much at all. Now I’m gonna focus on playing more the last 10 days at home (if my shoulder allows) and hope I can get the feeling and some movement back before going back to the US. Go Ducks!
at least this fun tennis practice made me in a good mood and woke up the hopes for my tennis game a little hehe
Since I went to bed way later than I usually do yesterday I also woke up a little bit later today, which was nice because I have had a problem with always waking up way too early.. But today I woke up at 7.15am, which is still early but more a normal time hehe. Went upstairs and prepared a big oatmeal breakfast. I made some changes to what I usually do when I add the zucchini in the oatmeal and it resulted in a better not as runny oatmeal! 🙂
Recipe: Put 2 dl oats and 3 dl water in a pot together with pumpkin-seeds, flax-seeds, and other seeds/nuts you want to add. Add a little of psylliumhusk and some cinnamon. After it has boiled for a little and some of the water has disappeared, add one shredded zucchini (The difference I made here was that I took out the seeds of the zucchini since they are full of water and also pressed out the water out of the shredded zucchini). Let it boil for a little longer and add peanut butter, as much as you’d like! Stir and take it off the stove and pour in a big bowl and add your toppings, I had half a banana, some blueberries, some extra peanut butter, and soy milk today. And some water melon slices on the side!
Had a great biceps/triceps workout today at the gym! I felt tired and not as motivated as usual before I headed to the gym, but it’s weird how those days often ends up being the best workouts. There was almost no people at the gym either (only the normal gym-rats that are always there haha) so it went easy and I had a lot of space for myself. Afterwards I was super happy, got a good stretch and was 100% motivated again. That’s what workouts can do to you, endorphins! Love it!
This is what I did today:
Biceps curls machine 10×4
Back extensions 12×4
DB One arm triceps OH push press 10Ex4
DB Alternating Biceps curls 8Ex4
DB Kickbacks 10Ex4
DB Alternating Hammer curls 8Ex4
Cable Triceps push down 10×4
Biceps curls w/ bar 6×4
DB Triceps OH push press 10×4
-and I improved on a lot of the exercises! Feels very good that all the work I put in (and food I eat) give results, getting stronger!
and hello abs, will see for how long you’re visiting this time hehe
Went to the gym this morning for a spinning session followed by about half an hour of a legs and butt workout. The spinning was pretty heavy and focused on slow biking so it burned (good for my butt and legs!).
After the spinning I did these exercises:
Leg Curls 8×4
Leg Extension 8×4
Leg Press 8×4
Cable Leg kick-back 8Ex4
Cable leg side-kick 8Ex4
Squat w/ kettle-bell 10×4
Good mornings with bar 15×3
and finished up the workout with a Questbar with Oreo flavor hehe
The feeling when you are going to make lunch and you just take what you can find in the fridge and freezer and it ends up being like the tastiest dish you have ever eaten! That’s what happened to me right now. I made a peanut butter and chili wok and just used what I had at home.
fitness noodles (from fitnessguru.com)
mixed wok vegetables (broccoli, chestnuts, carrots, bamboo sprouts, corn)
chopped red onion
peanut butter (with chili flavor) -found this in the grocery store the other day, delicious!
Do this: Start by roasting the sesame-seeds in a pan, take them off and put on a plate when they got a little color. Add coconut oil to the heated pan and add the mixed wok vegetables and the garlic, red onion, and the sliced turkey. Let it get some color for a few minutes, add some black pepper if you’d like. Then add the fitness noodles together with some soy sauce and about 2 tbs of the peanut butter. Let it get warm and add the sesame-seeds. Then it’s ready to serve! SO DELICIOUS!
Can’t wait for lunch time tomorrow so I can cook it again! Haha
My goal right now is to gain weight (preferable muscles) so I have been eating a ton of food this week. My stomach is all bloated from the amount of food I’ve been eating, but I just have to stand it because my little belly is going to get used to it soon! Had a little special gym session this morning, changed it up a little because I know it’s not “good” do the same things and routines every time you work out because your body get used to it. So I started with 15 minutes on the rowing machine and then I did about 45 minutes of full body weight. I did my Oregon weight program so I did not focus on a specific muscle group. Felt good and my body got really tired after!
Jacked Fuel drink Strawberry/Kiwi flavor!
Todays lunch, this plate X2! It’s one of my favorite dishes, would you want me to share the recipe here on the blog?
