Weekend Workouts Sweet Potato Concoction
The stair BEAST! Ever try this machine?
I had an ice cream with brownies in it this weekend, I will admit. (which I don't like so won't be mixing my brownies and ice cream again)
Worked out really hard this weekend, and feelin' it SORE!
I even did the MONSTER manual stair climber for 5 minutes (usally I do this for 20 minutes if I do NO other cardio). I know your thinking that's not much, huh? But after 15 minutes on the elliptical at a calorie burn of 1 calorie per minute it was tough! I burned 2 cals per minute on that stair MONSTER puppy.....sheesh.
Plus on a down side, I did have to drop down on the asst pullups machine by 10lbs but you know I am ok with that.
Last week I really kept my fat macro in line and hope to do the same this week, just tweeking some things while trying to stay on a budget.
On a food note, (I did not load the pictures yet) I am trying a new thing with my sweet potato........
What do you think?
1 med sweet potato
2 tbs honey
1/2 oz sunflower seeds
D-lish sweet and salty......and for dessert yogurt with cinnamon.
Off day rest and grow
