The Dirt on Fruit (literally)

I want to be sure I’m being held accountable for my weekly goals so I thought I’d share this weeks workout plan.

Mon-run 4 miles check
tues- CF/strength T2B check
wed- rest day/yoga check
thur- CF
Friday-CF/Strength
Sat-rest day/yoga
Sun-10K

I don’t have tabata sprints programmed for the week but plan on starting them next week!

Also to stay on track with food goals, I’m back to planning meals for the week:

Mon- Beet and Goat Cheese Salad Delisciouso
Tues- Lemon Dill Fish and Coconut Rice- Will share recipe SO easy!
Wed-Shrimp Spring Rolls
Thur-Teriyaki Chicken Burgers
Friday- ?? I don’t like to plan Fridays because sometimes its out or random picky food at home
Sat- out to eat

I really find that planning out my workouts helps just as much as planning out my meals. It holds me to the workout and keeps me from doing too much of one thing. I just use my little notepad on my Android to make a check list. Definitely give it a try! Nothing more satisfying than organization.

On To The Fruit..

Lately I have been really into washing my fruits/veggies. And I mean washing. I’ve always done the rinse off. But I purchased a vinegar spray and wasn’t really using it until one day I put it on an apple.  Holy grossed out central! The shyte that came off of this bad boy was repulsive.  I’m not sure what was worse, the wax/film or the dirt that clung to the wax. Hello eye-opener! I’ve been eating that!! I now use this spray as a quick rinse for my apples or soak a large amount of fruits such as strawberries in a bowl of vinegar/water for about 15 minutes.
