haha today we had an office birthday, which meant wonderfully delicious ice cream cake!!! I know I had you all excited to hear about some magic formula for how to be happy in life…but I think that eating cake is one step in the right direction! Definitely improved my afternoon!
It is also my wonderful mother’s birthday today…and so that means more cake later!!! I also want to take a moment to wish my momma a very happy birthday! She has been the one person who always stayed by my side and she continues to be my role model and best friend to this day! Love you mommmmyyy!!
Damn..she was a cutie patootie in her day! Wait, scratch that…she still is! haha
Anyways, on to my workouts and eats for last night and today!
Last night I went to spin class with my sissy..and though the music was interesting…to say the least (think drum beat rhythms that made you feel like you were being chased through the jungle by a leopard….I know I have an active imagination haha) but the workout was great! And I left a sweaty mess, which is always a good thing after a workout!
Dinner last night was a sweet potato & some sautéed broccoli…
I simply washed the sweet potato, poked some holes in it, then microwaved it for 4 minutes on high…topped it with some coconut butter, salt, and cinnamon! It was so good!! And quick…definitely need to make that more often! On the side was broccoli that I cooked in 1 tsp. coconut oil and topped with salt/pepper/& paprika!
I also got yogurtland with a friend after dinner, so that’s why my meal wasn’t ginormous!
This morning I hit up the gym since I knew I had to be home early for momma’s bday dinner!
I did 41 minutes on the treadmill…I will post the workout tomorrow because it was a good hill climb/interval workout that has you build on speed and incline as the workout progressed!
Breakfast this morning was a yogurt & sandwich thin topped with cream cheese and orange marmalade..my favoriteeeee!!!
Very good and filling breakfast!
Then, lunch today was a sort of “bistro box” if you will that consisted of snap peas, carrots, grape tomatoes, hummus, cheese, pita bread, and cashews! This is a great idea because it packs a lot of variety, protein, and staying power for sure!
Alrighty folks, that concludes my recent activities!
My plan for the gym tomorrow is going to be something like 20 min. on stairclimber, 15 min. elliptical work, & 10 min. treadmill…followed by some squats & arms!
I will give you the detailed workout tomorrow (and also post today’s treadmill workout!). Hope everyone has nice Wednesday evenings!!! Talk to you all soon 🙂
And remember…cake=happiness 🙂
