Escape from Study

18 May

Study. Seriously it is taking over my life. My only escape is an hour or so of exercise per day!! So as you can imagine, it’s my favourite time of day :). In order to create a little extra break, as well as sneak in some more cardio (which I’m constantly avoiding), I’m going to put together a 30 minute plyometric circuit that I can do at home in the mornings – a great way to start my day. Within the next couple of weeks I’m going to post this workout on my facebook page and would love to have people doing it with me so that we can keep each other accountable! Please let me know if you’re interested.

Motivation: Paige Hathaway

 

I only have a couple of recipes to share with you this week, but they’re both really yum.

 

Greg Plitt Cookie Dough from www.gregplitt.com – my boyfriend absolutely loves these!! He makes them every week

Serves 12 (although make them as big/small as you want)

2/3 cup chopped almonds

2/3 cup chopped walnuts

2/3 cup oats

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp vanilla essence

1 tbsp cinnamon

200g dark chocolate

¼ cup sugar-free maple syrup/agave syrup

3 scoops of whey protein (not part of the original recipe but I think it makes them better)

Blend/process all of above ingredients

Roll into golf-ball sized portion and place on baking paper

Freeze

Nutritional info: per serve

Total fat: 15.1g (5.5g sat)

Banana Nut Protein Bars from www.proteinpow.com – these are awesome as breakfast-on-the-run or a pre-workout snack

2013-03-24 07.56.09

Serves 6

1 small banana (~55g)

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup almonds

4 brazil nuts (I subbed 10g of hazelnuts)

2 tbsp coconut flour

3/8 cup whey powder (I used vanilla)

3/8 cup milk (I used lite coconut milk)

1 tsp of chicory powder – I could NOT find this anywhere!!! Very frustrating. It’s optional but apparently adds a nice flavour kick

Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celcius

Blend everything together and press the batter onto a small non-stick brownie pan

Bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean

I’m looking forward to creating this morning workout and hope you can join me in burning those fat cells!!! 🙂 x
