Wednesday
Activities
Morning workout - I kept it short as I had quite an active day
Interval training 10 sec rest, 30 sec work in 6 rounds of the following:

B: Rope jumps/Hindu squats
C: 3 variations of mountain climbers with elevated legs and elbow planks in the rest intervals
D: Pistols/Horizontal pull ups
E: Renegade row/Isometric handstands

Short, but intense :) took me about 25 min

Midday workout: Yoga - sun salutation and standing sequence instructional, took about 75 min, I count it as a workout as I was quite tired after it

Evening workout: Ashtanga yoga - 60 min

The upcomming week is going to be a bit more hard for me (workoutwise) as I'll be having a lot of extra yoga classes and I'll try not to skip my daily workouts.

Food
Breakfast:
Hemp protein* shake with coconut milk

Lunch and Dinner:
Large salad with beetroot, cabbage, algae*, buckwheat
The leftovers of the yesterdays home made treats* (those are really addictive :) )
