Samantha Harris’ Diet
Samantha doesn’t follow a specific diet, but she does watch what she eats. Samantha makes smart, and healthy choices, and allows herself the occasional treat. Her is a typical day menu for Samantha.
Samantha Harris’ Menu
- Breakfast A banana with Trader Joe’s Greek Style Nonfat Yogurt (honey flavored) and a big mug of Swiss Miss No Sugar Added hot chocolate with calcium at the crack of dawn .
- Snack To energize before hitting the gym, I enjoyed my fave protein-packed Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt with 2 packets of Splenda, a squeeze of honey and topped with a Nature Valley Oats ‘N Honey Granola Bar.
- Lunch It’s been a packed day—no time for a solid lunch, so I had an apple and a Promax Cookies ‘n Cream protein bar.
- Dinner I have to get it in early before baby’s bathtime and bed, then off to a movie screening for work. I had a yummy bowl of butternut squash soup (vegan), blackened salmon and grilled asparagus with a big glass of water with lemon. During the movie (and every night, actually) I had a handful (OK, a BIG handful) of Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Covered Raisins—yum!
Samantha Harris’ Weekly Workout Calendar
- Monday: I take a 60-minute crazy, high-power cardio kickboxing class at the gym, with the requisite fast-paced punches, throws and kicks, Billy Blanks style. This workout leaves me dripping by the end. It’s pretty intense; we always follow the cardio portion of the class with abs and stretching.
- Tuesday: I run the Santa Monica stairs. I warm up, do some stretching and then run up the cement steps and back down again two times. After that, I run “laps” up the wood steps, over to the cement ones and down them. I’ll do 8-9 laps and then throw a last one in there as a cool-down.
- Wednesday: I take a 60-minute cardio-sculpt class, which mixes cardio intervals with resistance training. Sometimes we’ll alternate five minutes of jumping rope or stepping with resistance training, and other times we’ll work with light dumbbells while on the step. At the end we focus on abs and stretching.
- Thursday: Usually I’ll do a half-hour of upper-body weight training, either on my own or in a sculpt class, followed by 30 minutes on a cardio machine. Sometimes I’ll do the elliptical, stair-stepper or stationary bike, and other times I’ll spend 10 minutes on each one.
- Friday: I do a 60-minute sculpt and stretch class that includes abs. This is kind of a rest day for me since it’s not nearly as intense as my other workouts. I’ll use 3-, 5- and 10-pounders, doubling up when I can and drop-setting when we go for more reps to really get the muscles burning.
- Saturday: Some weeks I’ll go back to the gym for another installment of the cardio kickboxing class, but if the weather is nice, I’ll get outdoors and run the stairs again. However, when we have a chance, my husband and I enjoy going for a hike in the mountains near our home.
- Sunday: I’ll usually take another cardio sculpt class in the morning, which by this time of the week really kicks my butt. Then if things aren’t too crazy in the afternoon, I’ll go back to the gym and take a 90-minute yoga class, which really helps me to relax and stretch out my body.
