Glute Day + Healthy Eats

Breakfast (sweet potato hash with eggs)

I started my day with a healthy mix of protein and carbs to help fuel my leg workout. I began by par-cooking a small sweet potato in the microwave. Leaving most of the skin intact I diced it into small bits, seasoned them with Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning, then gently placed them into a medium  non stick skillet with 1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil. I sautéed them until they were nice and crispy. After breakfast it was off to the gym to work my legs and abs.

Leg day was fun and challenging as usual. I love working my flutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps.



In this video, I'm performing bulgarian split squats on a assisted smith machine. In the bottom videos I'm executing calves raises (21's). 7 shoulder width apart, 7 toes turned out (like a ballerina), and 7 toes turned in.

In this video, I'm performing stiff legged dead-lifts using dumbbells.

These windshield wiper abs are no joke. I'm working on building my upper body strength so that I can perform this move with my legs straight.

Dinner

I seasoned this little beauties with garlic, pepper, and italian seasoning. I then sautéed the chops in extra virgin olive oil for about 4 minutes per side on medium high heat.

Garnish 

In a small non stick pan I heated diced apples, dried organic cranberries, and pecans with a tsp of maple syrup. It was so good, I mean 5 star worthy good. lol
