Crying Over Spilled Milk
Hello Friends! I am back with a regular blog! Yippeeeeee.
I apologize for not having my regular day yesterday, I wasn’t feeling good, but I hope the Peanut Butter Cup recipe satisfied you! Some of my Instagram followers tried it and loved them. So happy I can bring you guys healthy treats 🙂
So let me catch up on some things. I have been following my alphabet game accordingly. O was eaten all day long with lots of organic fruit, and some grilled onions for dinner.
And since today is P? Well I have a fabulous peachy protein drink for you. And it’s not just any old protein shake. Only the best one I’ve ever made. Hands down. I bring you my Peaches N Cream Protein Milkshake.
You have to click the above picture because it has a very secret ingredient that is the KEY to making it taste like a milkshake!
Since I didn’t update yesterday I will show you the very few things I did which included going to the store… and someone please tell me why VELVEETA was placed in the produce aisle with the zucchini and asparagus?
I also meal prepped
The cottage cheese is the Friendship brand with no added salt! So great. I love the lids:
Moving on to yesterday, my work day was not very fun. I was still having that down in the dumps feeling and my white coat was MIA. Thank goodness the one that was being dry cleaned was finished!
By the end of the day I was begging for the clock to strike 4:30 and all I could think about was my protein shake (I bought a new chocolate whey brand). I was in such a hurry to get changed for the gym that this happened:
I was stressed, and when I’m stressed, tears are shed. So yes I cried over spilled milk. It was just my tipping point I guess. You look forward to one thing all day and then it’s taken from you. 🙁
I still went to the gym anyway…
I decided to try the other Gold’s gym that I previously belonged to. I wanted to see if it was less crowded. Well it was WORSE. Extremely packed. The good news is they had 2 new beautiful stairmasters, top of the line! I spent 30 minutes on one. But again there were only 2, 4 in all, and I had to stalk to get the one I wanted! I will probably head back to my old gym later today.
I did a quick arm routine too:
- Tricep cable pulldowns, 40 lbs, 12 reps x 4 sets (2 sets overhand grip, 2 sets underhand grip)
- Bicep cable curls, 40 lbs, 12 reps x 2 sets, then 50 lbs, 10 reps x 2 sets
- Tricep overhead pull with cable rope, 40 lbs, 12 reps x 3 sets, then 50 lbs, 10 reps x 1 set
- 25 lb plate hammer curls, 12 reps x 2 sets
- 25 lb overhead tricep extensions, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Drag curls, 30 lb bar, 12 reps x 4 sets
- Tricep kickbacks using 10 lb plates each hand, 12 reps x 3 sets
- Bicep rope hammer curls, 40 lbs, 12 reps x 2 sets, then 50 lbs, 12 reps x 2 sets
- Tricep assisted dips, 15 reps x 3 sets
As you can see not my normal arm workout at all. I think I am going to move arms to a day when I am off! It’s one of my favorite workouts and I rush through it and don’t feel like I am giving it my all. Going to start adjusting my days this week so bear with me!
I also did my “in betweeners”- plate side bends & torso twists
At home I made a dinner of mahi mahi using my Maple Rub, and a side of zucchini and asparagus.
I finished my night with blogging and The Bachelor!
Today Phoebe is spending the day at G-Mama and Pop Pops. I know she is going to be so excited when she finds out! Only bad part is getting up extra early to take her over at 5 am.
I’d also like to thank all my new readers! Yesterday my blog exploded from my pins on Pinterest. My readers increased 500%. I was floored, that’s a real number! I hope you guys continue to follow this blog, I have lots of delicious recipes and fun workouts coming your way 🙂
XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
