Didn't get up for a bootycall workout so I added an extra mile to my cardio. Really great leg day for me. Didn't prep for being out during lunch time so I picked up some dark chocolate caramels at Trader Joes. Not the best but I made up for it with an awesome dinner.
Finally made some cauliflower mash. I've been meaning to try this but was hesitant because I wasn't sure I would like it. I added some almond milk and a ting bit of butter, salt and pepper. It turned out great! And guess who liked it?? Ben and Seppe!! When, something gets Ben's approval, it's a keeper. He's also tried out quinoa and realized that he likes that too!! He takes it to work now :-) Ever since his surgery, he has really been motivated to eat healthier. He has been doing great. I've been making to a of Brussel sprouts, quinoa and fish. It makes life easier when I'm not the only one eating healthy.

Sunset Challenge:

I'm with the man of my dreams, we have two amazing boys, I live in a great area, I'm part of an amazing TIU team and I'm the strongest and healthiest I've ever been. I'm not perfect but I've come a long way these last 3 years and I have so much to look forward to :-)

BikiniSeries Day36-40

I fell behind on posting last week. I kept track but just didn’t post. So here’s a summary of my workouts and meals. I had some great sessions at the gym. The highlight would be leg pressing 270lbs :-) It’s been a goal of mine to stack up 3 45s on each side since I started lifting. And yes, I. Working on adding another 45 on each side :-)

Took the boys to volleyball with me last week. Not a great idea. It becomes stressful trying to keep them entertained and out of the way. But it’s something I will have to figure out because I will probably have to bring them with me over the summer.

Swapped Thursday and Friday’s TIU workouts. I do legs Mon, Wed, and Fridays. Arms and/or Total Body Tues/Thurs. But I do try to be flexible since I never know what will come up – especially on Ben’s days off.

Meals were ok. Had some L&L Hawaiian BBQ. I ordered the Garlic Shrimp and omg!! It was sooo good. Also had some Nubi a couple times. I know I have to cut back on treats and eat more home cooked meals. As good as the garlic shrimp was, I can make a much healthier version at home.

A very long day today. I meant for it to be a lighter day but it turned out to be pretty intense. Quick but hard upperbody workout at the gym. I lowered the weight on the assisted pull-ups. It was hard but I was able to do the reps. The last one might not have been a complete one though. Lol. It was a struggle.

Did all the toning workouts after putting the boys to bed. I was sooo tired when I was all done. I could have fallen asleep on the floor.

Meant to get up for a bootycall but didn’t hear the alarm. Planned on doing the toning workouts but Seppe stepped and pulled on my bad ankle. It hurt soooo bad. I pretty much fell to the floor when it happened. Decided to let it rest so I could hopefully workout during the weekend.
