Day #7: Dynamix

One week into P90X3, and my energy levels are soaring! How can I tell? Because I prepped breakfast and lunch for today before going to bed last night. Because I’m popping out of bed right with my alarm clock (and puppy kisses) instead of hitting snooze, even though I have nowhere to be. Because it’s 7:26 am and I’ve got lunch simmering on the stove so it will be all ready when I come back from church hungry.

So what are we eating?

I found this delicious pudding recipe from Edible Perspective, and it’s too good and simple not to share:

2 cups almond milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder*
7 dates
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

*When I made it, I halved the cocoa powder and added 1/8 cup chocolate protein powder. Still turned out delicious.

Wisk together almond milk and chia seeds. Add peanut butter, cocoa powder, and dates. Stir a couple times (doesn’t have to be fully combined). Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Blend on high until nice and creamy.

Makes about 3 cups. I split mine into four 3/4 cup servings, coming in at 294 calories and 14g protein. Not bad for a delicious delicious snack!

Lunch is an easy peasy fresh vegetable beef soup, and for dinner I’m finishing off the mango salsa with some salmon.

I’m looking forward to Dynamix after church today… I’ve never done it, but I’ve also never completed P90X3. I think doing Dynamix instead of just taking a rest day will be good to keep me on track.

Feeling great today!

    1. I have not done regular P90X – my husband got me into P90X3. (I used to be a runner before I moved to the cold cold cold northeast, but I just can’t stomach running in -6 F.)

      According to him, it’s a much more intense work out, but easily modified for different skill levels. I have to modify a lot of the stuff – for example, I can’t even do a single pull up – but Tony always has examples of how to modify it to make it easier or more intense.

      Hope that helps!
