Major Zucchini Lovin & Workout Split

Ahh zucchini how I love thee.

Let me count the ways.

Zucchini noodles, raw tempeh and my tangy tahini dressing.

Zucchini noodles, sweet corn, marinated tofu and red bell peppers in a whole wheat pita pocket.

This was so messy to eat! I ended up rolling it width wise, and then dipping it in a spicy plum sauce.

Zucchini ribbions with artichoke hearts, celery, sweet corn, sweet potatos, cucumber lovin and more of my slaw dressing. Its so addicting, I cant seem to get enough of it.

While I’m getting ready for my Campus Cutie challenge I have been evaluating my work out routine and trying to change it up a bit. After a few months of unclean eats and boring all cardio workouts I was totally lacking motivation and so unhappy with the results I was getting. After a few weeks of eating clean and getting back in the groove in feeling fine! Basically my week of workouts goes like this…

  • Monday – Legs, Abs and Cardio
  • Tuesday- Arms, Abs, HIIT
  • Wednesday – Legs, Abs and Cardio
  • Thursday – Arms, HIIT and Yoga
  • Friday – Legs, Abs and Cardio
  • Saturday – Arms, HIIT
  • Sunday – Cardio + Whatever I feel like doing

On top of this, I usually try to squeeze in Zumba two times (or more) per week if I can fit it in around my work scheduele. Ever since I have decided to finally get certafied I want to take all of the classes that I can!

Im thinking though that looking over my new weekly workout split that it still needs a little fine tuning. Any suggestions?

For cardio usually I alternate between running on the treadmill, the elliptical and the stationary bike. But lately though I have really getting into lifting weights, and love using the machines. I can really feel my body responding well and I’m getting stronger already. A coworker today told me that my arms were looking beastly. Pshhh yea! 🙂 Even though they aren’t even close to being “beastly” it still made my day.

I still cant believe that I forgot all about this amazing feeling that I get when I workout and eat clean. Its like being supercharged and chock full of energy. I feel so awesome! Im feeling more and more like my old self every day.

Lately I have been thinking more and more about what I’m looking to get out of fitness. Its always good to have goals. One of mine was to get certified in Zumba. I can almost check that one off (on september 19th!) Recently I have been thinking about another one. As you all know one of my favorite magazines is Oxygen fitness magazine, and I have been reading it for months. One of the women who is always within its pages is Jamie Eason.

Isnt she gorgeous? Check out them guns!

It is gorgeous women like Jamie Eason and Miss Averie that are inspiring me to want to compete in figure competitions. Can I do it? I have no idea. Would it be fun? Sure, you bet. 🙂 So I’m setting a new goal. I want to get toned, build some major muscle and somday compete in a figure compeition.

Okay thats all for me today but I leave you with a sneak peak of tomorrows post…

Two words.

Booty Pop!

That leaves you something to ponder, doesnt it?

    Booty Pop? What in the world..

    My fitness goal would have to be.. more toned arms and some definition in my stomach. The arms are slowly getting there (I have some mini bicep bulges!) but the stomach.. not so much. Probably because I kind of ignore it. Abs aren’t my favorite thing to work because I find ab exercises boring.

    Nice zucchini eats! My fave would be simply cooking it in sesame oil with some spanich and tofu 🙂 I would like to make the noodles, though! (I just need a noodle maker)
