When Did This Start Taking 3 Hours
Good Morning Friends! It’s Monday, and that pretty much means I am in a depression until 4:30. Even though my move was stressful, I’ve had the most wonderful 4 days off, 3 of which I’ve enjoyed my gorgeous new apartment. I’m serious guys I do not want to leave. I had mini panic attacks last night thinking about leaving it. If I didn’t go to work though, I wouldn’t be able to live here, so you gotta do what you gotta do!
As you are reading this, I wonder what Phoebe is doing right now. This is the first time she is loose in my apartment while I am gone all day. In our old place, I put a baby gate across the bathroom and she stayed in there. Now I’m going to let her run free since she doesn’t bother anything. I will however close my bedroom door and closet, because girlfriend likes to pee on carpet. NOT HAPPENING PHOEBS!
Yesterday we had a pretty good day. I woke up to coffee and sunlight and a nice walk outside with the pup.
Then I worked out downstairs in my apartment gym. Another leg day! Twice a week. NPC is all about lower body and making it stand out. Check out this new exercise I did using the Smith Machine!
The bar alone is 45 pounds, so I stuck with just that. Next time I will try and put on 10 pounds or so, but wanted to focus on form this time. I did 10 reps x 3 sets each leg.
After lots of leg work I did my cardio which included 15 minute intervals on this bike (not a spin, but it’ll do)
Then a little more cardio on a stair incline machine I have. I will have to take a picture of it for you guys. It looks like an elliptical with a super high incline, but it’s a stair stepper. Pretty cool. It definitely burns too.
When I came back up I decided to make my protein shake into a fluff. Since I can’t have extra fruit it’s hard to make my fluffs like they used to be with one small banana. The other frozen fruit really helped to give it substance and a thickness. Ice cubes watered it down too much, so I tried freezing almond milk!
Once I showered Phoebe and I got dressed and headed to G-Mamas
After hanging out for a little bit, I decided I needed to do my grocery shopping. I didn’t have enough veggies for the week (and after prepping I realized I still don’t have enough), and I needed to stock up on almond milk, greek yogurt, and cottage cheese. My cart was probably the healthiest one in the whole store.
Once I came back and picked up my girl, we headed home to organize our home a bit. Check out my new laundry basket. I’m pretty excited about it.
We also took another walk but it was a fast lap because it started to rain 🙁
After a delicious dinner
I meal prepped
Let me say this took about 3 HOURS! These meal preps are out of control. Measuring each component takes forever. I refuse to eye ball it, because it’s always off. The almond milk will be measured each day because I don’t have enough blender bottles. But this is 4 days worth of food up to my dinner time. It took me so long, hopefully I will get quicker at this as the weeks go by. Last week I only had 2 work days and that was so much easier to prep! Being healthy is difficult.
In those lunches hold my Sweet Potato Burgers. 100% clean and natural ingredients. Check out the recipe 🙂
Enjoy your Monday, let’s hope this week flies!
XOXO With a Cherry On Top,

When I was in school, I always hated meal prepping on Sundays, I knew I needed to, otherwise I’d have nothing to eat, but still dreaded it lol. That quinoa crust sounds interesting, I’ll have to tell my boyfriend about it since he love quinoa. Hope today goes by fast for you!
What a beautiful, green grocery cart! I swear, someday I am going to be a master meal prepper like you 🙂 So glad you’re seeing the results you want and all of your dedication is paying off. You should be so proud!
