Kick up your cardio a notch by running for at least 45 minutes. One hour if possible. If you can’t run for an hour, then run for as many minutes as possible, then eat up the remainder of the time with speed walking.
Breakfast: Green Simple Smoothie
1 cup kale
1 cup water
Place in blender and blend until smooth
Lunch: WHOLE Wheat Turkey Sandwich
As long as your bread is 100% WHOLE grain, and your turkey is lean, then feel free to pile any veggie on top to make this the sandwich of your choice and enjoy! Go light on Mayo, and use spicy mustard to give it zest.
Dinner: Boiled Yam and Chicken Veggie Mix
Frozen mixed vegetables
½ chopped small onion
1 chicken breast cut in small pieces
Cut yam approximately ¼ inch thick into rounds and boil for 7 minutes (or until tender)
Heat 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil; add Italian seasoning; onion and sea salt to taste
Add chicken and sauté for 3 minutes
Add mixed vegetables and sauté all for 7-9 minutes
Enjoy with yam. Delicious!
You probably live next to a high school or a college. If you do, it’s likely that they have a sports stadium. Use the times that it is not in use to add to your workout routine. “Stadiums” is a great workout! Walk up and down the stadiums doing intervals with running if possible. If you can keep this up for an hour, then you can congratulate yourself on completing one stellar workout! Add in free weights (bicep curls) as you do the ‘walk’ portions of your stadium climbs.
