Homemade tuna patties

Tried something new for lunch today. I had a can of tuna at home and I actually don’t really like tuna so I don’t know why I bought it?? But sometimes (me very often) you buy stuff you don’t really know why hehe 

But back to the tuna patties, it was super easy and they didn’t taste tuna at all which I like! This is what you need for two patties:

  • 1 tuna can
  • 2 egg whites 
  • 1 teaspoon psyllium husk
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • 1/2 garlic clove 
  • Black pepper & basil 
  • Coconut oil for the pan

-> Put everything in a blender or use a stick blender to make everything smooth. Form two parties and fry in coconut oil in a pan on medium heat. 

Serve it with for example rice and mashed avocado with herb-salt. Easy, healthy, and delicious! 

   

I’m sorry for the ugly pictures, they tasted way better than they looked!  

Squats Squats Squats

It was time for leg day today again with Lina and it ended being a great workout! Might depend on the Starbucks date we had before we went to the gym! Coffee is always a good idea 😉

Got through a lot of good exercises and reps during one hour at the gym!

  • Front squats with barbell superset with 
  • Good mornings
  • DB Walking lunges 
  • Hip Adduction superset with 
  • Hip Abduction
  • Leg press Wide 
  • KB Goblet squats superset with
  • KB deadlifts

Finished with some cardio on the bike and a good leg/butt stretch! 

   
 

Salmon dinner + shoulder/chest workout

Had one of my favorite dishes last night for dinner: salmon! It’s so simple and pretty quick to make. And I actually found a n unopened bag of salmon in my freezer so will be more salmon this week before I move home! 😄 

For this dish I just fried broccoli, onion, and garlic in coconut oil at the same time as I fried the salmon with black pepper, basil, and chili powder on in coconut oil as well. Let it fry for about 10 minutes and then it’s all done! Easy and delicious! 

Perfect dinner after my shoulder + chest workout I had in the afternoon! 

This is how my workout looked like:

  • DB incline narrow bench press superset with 
  • DB alternating front raises
  • DB Upright row superset with 
  • DB incline flies 
  • DB shoulder press superset with 
  • Cable chest flies 
  • DB lateral raises superset with
  • DB narrow bench press

I do a lot of Dumbbells instead of using the barbell just because there is no barbell at this little gym I usually go to in my apartment complex.

This meal is paleo-friendly! 

Morning run

The perfect way to start the day for me is for sure going on a feel-good run. Not deciding how far or how fast to go, just running easily as long as you feel like and in the pace that feels good. Especially, days (weeks) like this when I have a lot on my mind with school, packing, moving, jobs, and so on, running is the best therapy and the best way for me to relax my brain.

So today I woke up super early as always and put my nikes and my garmin forerunner watch on and went for a sun in the sunrise! Ended up being a 7 km run, perfect start on this sunny and busy day! & of course my big breakfast tasted even better after some activity and fresh air in the morning!

Now I’m really gonna try to study well the rest of the day!

just some details from my morning run.

Quinoa/noodles, shrimp + pesto

Was actually a long time ago I mixed together one of my favorite dishes like this one! So for dinner today I decided to make this quick, healthy and delicious meal! 

I made quinoa and noodles (because I couldn’t decide what I wanted so made both hehe) fried shrimp, broccoli, & garlic in a pan. Chopped sun- dried tomatoes & avocado and roasted pine-nuts! Then I just mix all of it together with way too much pesto sauce and it taste great! 

It does taste 100 times better with homemade pesto sauce though, but I have to wait with that until I get back home to mummy;) if you just search for “pesto” on my blog you should get up my favorite recipe for both normal pesto sauce & pesto made of almonds! They are both delicious!

   
 

And yes I had 2 and a half of these bowls (quinoa made for 4 people and noodles made for 2 haha) 

Leg session

Another day another leg & but workout with Lina. Lina and I are trying to get a leg workout in every 3 or 4 days depending a little on how our body feels and our schedules. 

I’m very happy I’ve got my leg workouts back in my schedule/routine again now after my foot injury. I still need to be a little careful doing some exercises and I cannot really do jumps or plyo. 

Today our workout looked like this:

  • 10 minutes on the elliptical for warm-up
  • Squats superset with
  • Good mornings 
  • Leg extensions
  • Hip Abduction superset with 
  • Hip Addiction
  • Leg press wide stand 
  • KB Squats superset with 
  • KB Deadlifts 

Then a 30 minute bike cool down I would say because I had easy resistance. 

What’s your favorite butt/glute excersise to get the best contact in your muscles? Need some inspiration!

Shoulder + abs workout

Had a great and sweaty shoulder & abs workout. I think it’s my new favorite muscle groups to work on together! I did supersets alternating one shoulder exercise with one core exercise to keep a high pace without too long rest! This is how my workout looked like:

  • Cable shoulder press superset with Hanging knee raises 
  • Alternating DB shoulder press superset with Russian Twist
  • DB Lateral raises superset with legs in & out on bench (don’t know what this exercise is called)
  • DB Cuban press superset with Cable crunches 
  • DB Upright row superset with Cable side twist 

I did 5 or 6 sets of each and the whole workout took me about an hour and afterwards I biked easy for 30 minutes and finished with a stretch. 

   
 

Happy and sweaty gymgirl after a great workout!
