Hey everyone, I hope you’re all having a good weekend!

As usual, today I’m going to recap last week’s workouts and let you see my plan for the upcoming week. I also have ANOTHER recipe for you all! I always say I’m not a recipe blog, but I just keep coming up with new ideas that I want to share! Granted they’re all smoothies and breakfasts…

Here’s a look at last week’s workouts:


Sunday – Total Strength class

Monday2.5 mile run + Jillian Michaels Video 3 mile run + 10 minutes sprints (too sore from strength class to do a JM video!)

TuesdayREST I was in the mood to sweat, so I did JM Ripped in 30 level 2 and then did some zumba moves to a few songs for bonus cardio (aka danced around like a crazy person…)

workouts march 3

Sunday – Total Strength class (I might do yoga instead since I missed a rest day this past week, but I feel good so we’ll see!)

Monday – 2.5 mile run + JM Video

Tuesday – Zumba or Rest

Wednesday – 2.5 mile run + Jillian Michaels video

Thursday – Zumba

Friday – Total Strength Class

Saturday – I hadn’t signed up for the Punk the Monk 5K when I made this workout image, but instead of a 3 mile run + cardio, I’ll be doing a trail run that’s about 3.25 miles on Saturday morning! So excited!


If you remember, during my What I Ate Wednesday post this week I showed you my new breakfast of Apple Cinnamon Amaranth and promised you all a recipe, well here it is!

Amaranth is kind of like if Chia seeds and Quinoa got together and had a baby… got it? Good. If you are unfamiliar with either, amaranth is like teeeeny little squishy pebbles. Sounds weird but I liked it, not as much as oatmeal, but still good. And, according to Linz, it has more protein than any other gluten free grain!

Cinnamon Apple Amaranth


1/4 cup dry amaranth

1/2 cup almond milk

1/4 cup water + more if needed*

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 packet stevia

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 chopped apple


Fist, put the amaranth and all liquid on the stove and cook like you would quinoa or oatmeal. While that’s going, chop the apple into bite sized pieces and either sauté in a pan or microwave the pieces with a  bit of cinnamon (90 seconds is enough).

Be sure to stir the amaranth while cooking to keep it from sticking and to give it a little more volume (*for extra volume, turn off the heat when there is some liquid left, cover and let the grain soak up the extra liquid, 20 or so minutes later add more water and heat again). Once the amaranth is about cooked, add the stevia, cinnamon and chopped apple and stir until ready.

Be sure to top with some nut butter for extra healthy fats and protein! (and deliciousness).

Have you ever tried (or heard of) amaranth?

Do you try to make a flexible workout schedule each week?
