Hi there sweet peas! Happy almost Friday! I actually didn’t remember tomorrow was Friday until I just wrote that, so I’m feeling pretty excited right now:D
So did you pull any April Fool’s pranks on anyone?! Or were YOU the one doing the pranking? 😉 I’m not much one for April Fool’s, and luckily for me, neither is Shane 🙂
Although I did pull one on myself this morning… I made myself what I thought would be a delicious bowl of overnight oats!
That doesn’t even look good! Well it was horrid! Word to
yo mutha the wise: don’t make overnight oats with steel cut oat groats. Unless you like crunchy oats. Me? Notsomuch. I even tried microwaving them (plastic container and all) when I got to work. Didn’t work. However, I forced them down because a) I was starvin’ and b) my muscles needed some of that Jay Robb protein powder swirled in after my morning workout!
I met my girl Heidi at the gym, and we did about 35 minutes of hill walking before splitting different ways. She to the elliptical and me to the weight room.
|Bulgarian Split Squats w/ 10 lb dumbbells||10×4 sets|
|Wide Grip Lat Pulldown w/ 27 lbs||10 x 3 sets|
|Deadlifts w/ 50 lb. barbell||10 x 3 sets|
|Bent Row w/ 30 lb. barbell||10 x 3 sets|
|Alternating Grip bicep curls w/ 12 lb dumbbells||10 x 3 sets|
|Calf Raise Farmer Walkouts w/ 35 lb. dumbbells||10 x 3 sets|
|Rear delt flies w/ 8 lb dumbbells||10 x 3 sets|
|Rolling around like a worm on the foam roller||Until I can’t stands it no more!|
Done and done! Took me about 40 minutes to get through this weight workout. I then showered and got ready for work at the gym and had aforementioned nasty oats.
Today was actually a day where countless things went a little haywire to both Shane and myself. I won’t go in to too much detail, but I will say that we dropped off Shane’s car, and they did more damage than harm, and wouldn’t compensate us for our trouble. Ahem. Not April Fool’s.
We both left work a couple hours early to deal with the car situation, so I was able to make a quick stop by the store to pick up some necessary items, one of which I am more than excited to delve into:
Goat’s milk ice cream!! Nom! Hopefully.
It reached 80º (!!!) here in Illinois today, so I also took advantage of the unseasonably amazing weather and took the Nikster for a walk before heading to the gym to train a few clients.
Once home, it was late, and I was hungry, so I turned to Mickey Mouse Meals.
TJ’s Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato bisque, romaine + organic honey mustard + strawberries, Millet toast + avocado + Quorn meatless chicken nuggets and dollops of ketchup. Fast and fabulous.
The hubski also got a gourmet Mickey Meal:
Romaine + ranch, TJ’s soup, AB&J, kettle chips
A lot of you have been asking how I squeeze so much in a day. Well, I cut corners. Lately, instead of black bean enchiladas or roasted chicken and noodles, I make my husband Mickey Mouse Meals. All about priorities, people.
On that note, I’m off to go not think for a while and watch Real Housewives of NY 😀 And perhaps dabble in some La Loo’s Goat Milk Ice Cream.
Have a fantastic night, folks! See ya tomorrow!
When your schedule gets busier and busier, where do you cut corners to save on time? Mine are clearly on dinner making skillz. And you know what? I’m more than OK with that. My Mickey Mouse Meal was awesome! 😀
