Bowl of berry oats on Saturday morning!
I went to the gym afterwards and was planned on a run and some weights but the second i started running, I realized I had drunk too much water before hand AND my knee began to hurt a little bit so I listened to my body and moved over to the arc trainer. I did 20 minutes on the arc all different levels, then 10 minutes in the step mill followed by a weight circut. I went through this twice so when I say 2 sets, I did one of everything then back around once more for a 2nd set

- 2 sets of 15 each leg bosu lunges
- 2 sets 15 rear delt raises
- 2 sets 15 squats on bosu with 8lb med ball
- Jump rope (1 min)
- 2 sets 15 hip raises on bosu
finished up with 10 minutes on the stepmill and abs
- ball crunches (1 min)
- Bosu alternating crunches (1 min)
- toe taps (1 min)
- reverse crunches with stability ball between my legs (1 min)
- Repeat twice
Post workout snack. 1/2 C cottage cheese and serving of sea salt soy crisps for those high GI carbs!
Lunch was the usual salad that I have been craving with pumpkin spiced chickpeas
Tofu salad made with stone ground mustard, dollop of cottage cheese and sesame blend spices
Eaten around 5:00. With some cinnamon. (I am waiting for the apple cinnamon Chobani!!)
For dinner, we were both so tired, we decided to cook up a mexican dinner! (by WE I mean, I)
Sliced some peppers
Sauteed some peppers and onions
Fajita marinated chicken
- Diced chicken breast
- 1/2 packet Fajita seasoning (only used half because of the high sodium content)
- about a TBSP of Mrs Dash Mexican seasoning blend (Jason didn't even know!) but I used this to cut out some of the sodium
- Juice of 1 lime and some zest
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tsp crushed garlic
- Let it sit for 10 minutes-1 hour ( I did about 45 minutes)
- Cook in skillet till no longer pink (about 10 minutes)
Mix with the rest of the veggies ( I threw in some Broccoli rabe for me!)
- 2 Avocados-ripe!
- 1/2 beefsteak tomato
- juice of 1/2 lime (it was very juicy!)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Mix all around and VOILA!
The mexican feast in its entirety with low carb tortillas and a salad.
My plate. I got medium salsa instead of mild and my mouth was on FIYAHHHH
Nothing like a romantic Mexican Fiesta!
Today I had a bridal shower for Jason's brother's fiance. It was at noon. This was my first bridal shower ever! it was so nice.
Each table was given an array of mini sandwiches
