Happy Friday Eve all! This is going to be a quick post because I have TWO awesome recipes to whip up ~ HOMEMADE DARK CHOCOLATE ALMOND BUTTER CUPS and my CEiMB Recipe of the Week ~ Apple Brown Betty. Recipes and photos coming up tomorrow if you are interested 😉
I am continuing my 1/2 cup veggie challenge with breakfast into October because I LOVE it oddly enough lol. FAVORITE Breakfast Veggie Combo so far ~ Peppers & Snap Peas (0 pts).
Pre-bootcamp FUEL ~ some Serious Snacks ~ Cabot HOT Habanero and Kashi Crackers (3 pts)
Boot camp today was AWESOME! It is how I picture the Biggest Losers working out for real. We started out with a weights warm up before lapping the building and settling into a Bootcamp Obstacle Training Course.
We did this 4 times with 45 seconds at each station:
* Holding a 12 lb medicine ball, lunge pulses
* Ladder Drill (not sure of the name)– we ran up and down a ladder on the ground where you criss cross back and forth stepping both feet in and out
* Jump Rope
* Stretch band squats left and right
* Raising an 8 lb Medicine Ball up/down as we did jumping jacks with our feet
* Bent over rows using resistance bands tied to a poll
It went by so fast, yet, it was such a great workout that was tough but didn’t seem like torture. LOL
Lunch was “s’more” Roasted Spaghetti Squash topped with Turkey Cabernet Sauce. (4 pts)
Plus a nectarine for dessert (1 pt).
After work we headed to my FAVORITE hair dressers ribbon cutting ceremony. I think it’s so cool that I have gone to the same person since I was 18 years old and she is now opening her very own salon called REFLECTION SALON & SPA!
So PROUD of her – her place is awesome and her prices are good so if you live near Folsom/Sacramento, check it out, you won’t be disappointed 🙂
I actually passed up the wine, but, did dig into some cheese squares, a mini crab cake and a caprese skewer. I somehow forgot entirely about my camera and picture taking too – oops.
Then, it was off to dinner at Mexquite with my family to continue the celebration.
Their menu was a book with so many great choices, but, I opted for a Tostada Chicken Salad. It was interesting……..
It was more like an open burrito ~ The plate was HOT with a tortilla topped with tons of hot beans, melted cheese, shredded chicken, lettuce, avocado, tomato, pickled onions and more cheese. It was just ok and I only ate about 1/3 of it because the lettuce got all wilted.
Sooo, how was that for a “quickie” post….told ya it would be short, sweet and not so to the point LOL….
Thanks for all the great comments on our Grand Canyon Trip – it really is amazing. More of our trip recaps coming soon!
Alright all ~ I have some dark chocolate and almond butter calling my name 😀
Have a fantastic Friday!
