Happy Monday friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to take on another week. Can you believe how fast April is flying by??
I have a beach tripped planned in June and it cannot get here soon enough!! 😀
I thought I’d share a little weekend recap with you guys. Let’s start on Friday…
I started my morning with a client, and fixed a quick breakfast of scrambled egg whites with spinach, and a low carb tortilla with peanut butter in it.
I had my bootcamp class at 10:30, and had an 11:30 meeting with the owner of a business called MealFit. I have a blog post all about this I will be posting later this week! I ate a cookies + cream Quest bar on the way there.
I love what this business is and all they do. I cannot wait to share!
After my meeting I ran to the bank, and had a quick lunch in my car.
Ground turkey, spinach, and sweet potatoes, with a banana on the side.
I had a little time to spare before my next client, so I decided to go get my nails done! It has been so long, but I was SO overdue for a manicure and a little self care. I love this shade of purple!
After my afternoon client, I headed home for a quick cup of coffee and a pre-gym snack of dates with peanut butter.
Because Friday was the 13th, we had a 13 themed workout. It was called “Lucky 13”
It was a lot harder than I thought! Of course, I always love the push.
It was a smaller crew on Friday night, but we all still worked hard!
I ended up really wanting ice cream for dinner….I know, I know….terrible. But if you’re a girl, you know the feeling of food cravings when you hit a certain time.
Since I was wanting ice cream, but didn’t want to blow it completely, I went with this Arctic Zero ice cream. A lot of their flavors are pretty good, and some of them have the whole pint at only 150 calories. So if you felt like eating the whole pint…..
I did have this green juice before the ice cream though, so no worries…balance. 😀
Saturday morning rolled around and I got up, drank some coffee, watched an episode of Supernatural, and headed back to the gym for a cardio + abs workout with the group.
We partnered up in this workout and swapped out between ab moves of standing oblique crunches, Russian twists, and sit-ups, and rotated the cardio between rowing, assault bike, jump rope, and running. Total rounds: 10.
I can’t begin to describe how much I love Powerhouse and all the people that I am surrounded by!
After the gym, I ran home to grab a protein shake and an RX bar, and headed out to my mid morning clients.
I came back afterwards, rested and showered, and made lunch: 1 whole egg, egg whites, and spinach, with a side of dates and a low carb tortilla with peanut butter.
After lunch, Dad and I ran some errands before any rain or bad thunderstorms came in. (You never know what to do about severe weather threats here in the south).
I ran by Hobby Lobby to get a couple things for a craft project I’ll be doing and blogging about for you guys.
After our stops, I came back home, made some coffee, and ate a snack.
This SILK yogurt was pretty good! I topped mine with a little bit of oats and a tad of peanut butter.
I was waiting to see about going to a friends for a shrimp boil, but I wasn’t sure about any more storms. Driving in downpours or storms makes me nervous and anxious!
I ended up staying home, not sure about what it was going to do, and watched a couple more episodes of Supernatural, worked on this blog post, and by then it was dinner time!
I threw some leftover chicken and some roast meat my dad cooked onto a bed of spinach, and cooked a side of homemade fries on the side.
These are super simple to make. You peel and cut up your potato into your “fries”. Place on a non-stick cookie sheet, sprinkle with desired seasoning, and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes!
Saturday night ended with Star Wars watching and a little more blog work, and then it was lights out for me!
Sunday morning started with coffee, then Dad and I went to the 8am Church of the Highlands service. The pastor there started a 7 week sermon series on wisdom. I can’t wait to hear the rest!
I was also really excited about how my curls turned out too! I’ve been learning how to curl my hair only in the last couple of weeks. I’ve been using my flat iron. I’m getting better!
Afterwards, I headed to my home church one exit back, and enjoyed a little more coffee and this ONE Birthday Cake protein bar that is delicious!
After the service, it was time for lunch!
I had a Bubba Turkey Burger and a side of a riced cauliflower medley.
For dessert I had this SoDelicious Key Lime yogurt.
I did a little more blog work, then headed over to Austin’s where we decided to go to Sonic!
My favorite thing ever to order from Sonic: tater tots and a diet cherry limeade. Never gets old!
We came back and watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi and I headed back home as he left for work. I ate a bowl of cereal when I got home and hopped straight into bed!!
I hope you all have a great Monday and be on the lookout for some other good posts this week!
