Throw Down Thursday


In today’s world, staying fit and healthy has become a priority. Even being overseas, this is no different for me. This year I decided I was going to take time to care about myself. Part of that care is trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.


My eating habits are fairly simple. Today, I wanted to talk about my regular breakfast. In the morning, if I have time and don’t teach early classes, I have started waking up at 8 AM and drinking a glass of water. I do this about half an hour before eating. Then, I start cooking.

I usually have about half a cup of frozen blueberries, 3 scrambled eggs, and half an avocado. If I don’t have avocado or I want to switch it up, I’ll have a small piece of salmon or even bacon or sausage. Also, because I have cut most sugars from my diet, I don’t eat bread. In the morning, I really need coffee so I drink that black.

If, I have an early class (9 AM) I don’t like waking up earlier than 8 so in a pinch, I will make a chocolate protein shake. Also, because I have cut most dairy from my diet, I will use almond milk. I also toss in a handful of frozen blueberries.

This is a pretty standard breakfast for me. How about you? What do you eat in the morning?


Let’s talk about working out. I try to get at LEAST 3 but usually more workouts in during the week. When I work out, depending on what I am doing, I try to go for a solid 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Today’s workout was Delts and Triceps: 10 minute bike warm-up Dumbell Shoulder Press ( 2 warm-up sets 10-12 and 1 set to failure) Side Lateral Raide (1 warm-up set 10-12 and 1 set to failure) Standing Low-Pullet Delt Raise (1 set 6-8 reps) Reverse Flyes (2 sets 10-12 reps each set) Triceps Pushdown (2 sets 10-12 reps each set) Lying Tricep Press (2 sets 10-12 reps each set) Seated Triceps Press (2 sets 10-12 reps each set
