Hey everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and that your first week of December was a good one. This week has been a busy one as I am nearing the end of the semester (i.e. lots of assignments are now due). Let’s start off with my usual talk about my week’s workouts and nutrition before I end the post with a short recap of my week.
Kayla Itsines Round 2 – Week 10
You know, for some reason I had gotten the impression that week 10 of Kayla Itsines (read more about her bikini body guide by clicking here) wasn’t that bad. Why I got that impression, I do not know as it was so much harder than I imagined!!! I could only just about make it through one round of each circuit (for all 3 workouts this week; legs, arms, and abs). I had honestly though that I had gotten better at snap jumps but when I saw I had to do 50 of them for the abs workout, it almost killed me. I think I find it so hard because every part of your body is being used; arms, abs and legs. I am definitely miles stronger at doing commandos however, as those really did not scare me quite as much as they used to. How do you guys find snap jumps and commandos?
Oh gosh, I just started thinking about tomorrow and the legs workout I have to do. I wish I had a workout buddy who was also doing the Kayla Itsines bikini body guide!
The cold weather is really making me crave warm soups and SWEETS! I had an awful beef stew from campus during the week that I highly regretted and about a million mocha lattes although I did order just an espresso today to try and stop that trend. I have been making my baked zucchini fritters a lot as they are delicious, healthy and filling, and tried my hand at making a roasted cauliflower soup with cumin which was absolutely delicious. In terms of sweeties, I’ve been nibbling a lot on cookies that I had baked for one of my classes and macarons … you will find out how I got these macarons in my weekly recap 🙂 I think that perhaps I should revisit my article on how to kick sweet tooth and take my own advice!
I also went to try Kin Khao, a Thai restaurant, with my friends and that was great. The portions were a lot smaller than I thought they’d be so for once I left a restaurant without feeling completely stuffed! For anyone in San Francisco who is looking for a more upscale and unique Thai restaurant then I would highly recommend Kin Khao. And do me a favor, order the rabbit green curry! Oh and get this – the drink in the photo is blue limeade. The drink is served to you blue and turns pink when the lime juice is added.
The most exciting part of my week was definitely when I attended a FRENCH MACARON BAKING CLASS this morning!!! I am planning on writing a recap post so for now I will leave you with this photo …
Apart from attending Kin Khao, seeing the beautiful Christmas tree in Union Square, and the macaron baking class, my week was very busy and full of studying and work. I think that my goals for this next week will be to reduce the sugar I have been having and to make more soups, since my body is definitely starting to crave something other than my cold (albeit delicious) wraps and salads.
How were your weekends? What workouts are you currently doing?
