Happy Monday y’all! How was your weekend? Mine was great, but once again it was WAY too short! I seriously can’t believe it’s March at this point…January and February just FLEW by!
For lunch yesterday we went to Panera Bread….one of my favorites! I got the Pick 2 combo with 1/2 of a Mediterranean Sandwich:
These are sooooooooooo good! I love the salty/spicy aspect 🙂 Then Nate got up to grab some coffee and just happened to come back with this bad boy:
After lunch I decided to take a nap because I’ve been feeling kind of icky since we got back from the mountains on Saturday. Just really congested and stuff, and I thought it would probably be helpful to get some rest so I can get better. I ended up taking a 2 hour nap, then got up and made some brussels sprouts for dinner:
I also had an unpictured piece of veggie lasagna from Saturday night; it was eaten by the time I realized I hadn’t taken a picture! OOPS! I did laundry (it was stacked up to my hip…I’m 5’10”, you do the math) and did a KILLER arm circuit workout, which I’ve laid out on my HPJ page for February 28. I was a tired and sweaty mess after that one!
So last week I got the goodies in the mail that I won in Janna’s Valentine’s Day contest!
I was just expecting the How Now Brown Cacao, but there were some samples of other great products in there…can’t wait to have a mini spa day and try it all! Of course, being a girl I immediately opened the How Now Brown Cacao and spread it all over my hands and arms. It smells DIVINE! Just like a dreamy chocolate dessert 🙂 Plus, it was really thick and made my skin super soft. Thanks again Janna!
Nate and I finished up some work (we’re almost done!!!) on Chad & Dayle’s wedding photos and then hit the sack. We had to get ready for this week since it’s going to be a long one! Breakfast this morning saw the return of the PB&J Oats:
This was a welcome warm bowl of peanut buttery goodness this morning! I just had a craving (I actually craved it last night but showed restraint) and these were perfect! I also had a cup of tea for my caffeine fix. This morning I woke up and did the yoga and Whittle My Middle parts of my workout, so now all I have left to do is some cardio with my walk this afternoon! Also, I hear it’s supposed to be in the 50’s this week in Colorado…woohoooooo! So excited for some warmer weather 🙂
Do you ever build your own strength training workouts? Or do you use others (like the Fitnessista’s Winter Shape Up)? Or do you utilize a workout DVD? OR do you use a combo of all three? I am a certified personal trainer through NASM and the Cooper Institute, and still have all of my books and workouts that I built for clients, so I like to use those to create strength training workouts for myself. But sometimes it’s really nice to just not have to think about it and use someone else’s workout design (hence me doing Whittle Your Middle 2) or a DVD!
