Betty Crocker Dance Party
Good Morning! Happy Saturday 😀
I definitely earned my weekend this week. Thursday at work was insanely busy. I was stuck in the ER seeing patient after patient. Being overwhelmed is well, overwhelming! But then Friday came and we all know Friday morning is my FAVORITE part of the week! Phoebe and I typically sleep in and then we get up and have our coffee while we browse the web and have a dance party. Every week without fail I put my music library on shuffle and we dance around like fools. Phoebe is usually on point with her jumps and growls and sometimes barks. She hits the notes perfectly 😉
Well this Friday I was working on a cookbook recipe so we made it a Betty Crocker Dance Party! If you saw my video on my Instagram account, it’s pretty darn cute. In case you missed it:
We baked, sang, danced, and enjoyed our morning.
Recipe definitely needs tweaking before it’s cookbook ready! But that’s what Friday mornings are for 😉
After a long fun morning, I got ready for G-Mamas and the gym. Phoebe was more than ready to go. It had been almost 5 days since we had been over. Oh how she misses her peeps.
I was really feeling my gym outfit. I changed the laces in my Nike frees to match! You guys know I have to coordinate.
Giving love to Phoebs. I told her it was bath day, but some how the little booger dodged that bullet. It’s happening this weekend whether she likes it or not!
At the gym I made it a shoulder day. I started with some interval work and alternated shoulders in between the exercises. Here were my shoulder exercises (the first half in blue are the ones I did with intervals):
- Shoulder presses with light barbell, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Clean and press with light barbell, 8 reps x 4 sets
- Upright row with light barbell, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Front delt raise with light barbell, 8 reps, 4 sets
- Alternating one arm front raise with side raise, small plate 10 reps x 4 sets
- Lateral raises with small plate, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Smith Shoulder shrugs, 115 lbs, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Cable rotator cuff abduction, 20-30 lbs, 10 reps x 4 sets each side
- Front Cable raise, 15-20 lbs, 10 reps x 4 sets
- Cross punches with 12 lb weights, 10 alternating reps x 4 sets
- Rear delt flys, 20 lbs, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Narrow Upright rows with 35 lb kettle, 10 reps x 4 sets

It’s been quite chilly and I always forget that it’s November. This little tiny hoodie and thin scarf just won’t do!
At home Phoebe and I made dinner. Veggies, a smoked chicken breast thanks to my awesome dad, and we also had a fluff. Weekends I push my calories more towards the end of the day because I am up later.
I wanted to stay up, but Phoebe was thinking something else.
A wink? Or a hey Mom I’m tired face? I told you she was a little dirt ball
Today I will be hitting the gym earlier than normal, it’s back day! I also absolutely have to get Phoebs little tummy medicine and have to travel a little bit to get it. She’s my baby and I’d travel to China if it meant something would help her.
And I’ve been brainstorming different ideas for my cookbook. I pretty much have ideas set but is there anything you guys would LOVE to see a healthy version of? I normally just cook things I eat, but if there is something I haven’t tried that people love I’d be willing to take a stab at it! I’ve received a few requests for Red Velvet Cake before, but I do not like it at all, sorry. Let me know though 🙂
