I started my wonderful day off with a FANTASTIC Breakfast

So, I absolutely love blueberries and blueberry muffins and anything with blueberries really!   The ordinary muffin has tons of sugar, calories, and not so good for you carbs…For example:

Dunkin Donuts: Blueberry Muffin

460 calories,  15 grams of fat,  76 grams of carbs,  and 44 grams of sugar and barely any protein!  WOW!

So when I saw this recipe, I knew that I needed to make it!

I wanted to make another one for lunch…But I didn’t.  Enjoy!

After breakfast I met up with my sister, aka: workout buddy and we headed to the gym.

We ran a mile to warm up and then we worked on legs!  My legs were so wobbly after this!

I call this the LOVE YOUR LEGS workout:

love your legs workout

I burned a whopping 816 calories!  My brother-in-law wanted me to try a new crossfit gym last night, but I don’t think I could handle another workout!

For the single leg dead-lift  try to lift each leg and hold it for a few seconds to feel the burn in your legs, gluts, and lower back.  I think my leg was starting to come down in this picture, but you get it I think:

Do ten on each leg, 3 sets….You will definitely feel a burn!

I refueled with my Beverly International Cookies N Cream Protein Shake mixed with water and then I had a banana because I wasn’t going home right away.

I had to make a very much needed but unwanted trip to walmart.  Who else HATES Walmart ???  It’s always so crazy, but I needed to get dog food!

When I got home I drank my Fitmixer Aminos (grape) to help with muscle recovery 🙂

Then came lunch:

Leftover chicken and onions with sautéed tomatoes, and avocado.  A little Salt and Pepper on top.

It was 60 degrees out yesterday!!   If I didn’t get out of the house to do something I would have regretted it!  So I took Lily on a walk!  She loves walks, and more exercise for me 🙂  Like I needed it after that intense workout!

Look at that huge stick he plays with!

My afternoon snack was 1/2 cup strawberries with lite cool whip and an Energizing PB Date Ball!  These are so addicting!

Dinner was homemade pizza with my Wildtree products!

The final product:  The half with feta, mozzarella, red peppers, onions and sausage was calling my name!

I couldn’t get the dough to form a circle or a square, but who cares it still tasted good!  I love my pizza stone too.

Fitness Facts:

Like I mentioned before, I like to workout with my sister, and we usually meet up with a couple other people as well.  I like working out with my “buddy” because we can motivate each other along the way!   Do you use the “buddy system” when you work out?

Here are some workout secrets to get the most out of your fitness routines!
