The big 4-0...

Tuesday Recap:

Workout:  30 minutes dance + 2 sets of weights + leg lifts & squats + 1 minute planks
Ohhhhhh...I think I tried everything in the book to talk myself out of this one, especially after feeling a little beaten up from 2 rounds of Power yoga, Body Pump, Cardio Kickboxing & Yin Yoga all within a few days span.  But my biggest selling point to just get it done was that I was already awake and falling back to sleep for those extra few minutes wasn't going to do me any good.  And with nearly all workouts you're not looking forward to:  I was VERY happy I did it once it was overJ  Hahahahhahaha

9:30am:  Perfect fit pancake with sliced strawberries

11:00am:  Snack-  Peach (are you surprised??J)  + 1/2 of a 2% cheese stick (not pictured)

12:30pm:  Smoothie Bowl
And despite that mid-morning snack, I was STARVIINNGGGGG by this point.  Like, 'feeling my energy deplete by the second' kinda hungry!  Thankfully this came together PRONTO.
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 5-6 strawberries
  • Handful frozen blueberries
  • 3-4 sliced frozen mango
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • Topping:  Coconut butter & granola

3:30pm:  Snack- 5 'hollow pretzels' with a scoop of hummus

And then it was time for the fun to start as we got to celebrating Scott's birthday properlyJ

Starting with his requested meal for the night:  Coffee & garlic roast pork, roasted broccoli & twice baked potatoes!
Those potatoes were the piece de resistance of the meal since they were mixed with ROASTED GARLIC, shredded cheese, Parmesan cheese, butter & milk...AND topped with ROASTED GARLIC SOUR CREAM! (just mixed sour cream with 2 heads of mashed roasted garlic and a little salt & pepper...ACES!)  It was TOUGH not to go back for the other half of the potato...let me tell yaJ  

But I knew there was MORE to be had in the form of CAKE!

Salted caramel Mocha, to be exactJ

Overall, a successful night of celebration with more to come over the weekendJ  VERY EXCITED to keep the party goingJ  

And now back to business today...aka- no cake for meJ  

Hope you guys have a great Wednesday!
