They made a holiday just for me!  I will definitely be enjoying a piece of this today!  My favorite dessert!!

Saturday I had to work, but I wasn’t going to skip the gym.

I told you guys the other day that I tried a new preworkout:

fooooooood 018

 I had some samples that I was going through.  Well before the gym, about 3o minutes after drinking it, I started to itch and tingle, especially my face and hands.  I knew for sure this was NOT going to be the preworkout for me!  I like the Jack3D way better, and I did not get this feeling at all!

 I saw a great kettlebell workout on Tina’s website and thought I would do it.  I also had to do my Day 3 of the Pushup Challenge (Hosted by Becky) and they kind of fit together so it was perfect!

Push-Up Challenge

So here’s what I did:

1.  To start off, I did as many pushups as I could:

I went up by 2, woo hoo!

Next I incorporated the Kettlebell workout with some planks and abs:

I followed up my workout with 10 minutes on the elliptical.

Dinner was a mix of scrambled eggs (one egg, one egg white) with laughing cow garden vegetable cheese melted in, yum. Also some mango salsa and crumbled sweet italian sausage.  I put the salsa on the side at first…

And then I realized how good it was so I mixed it all together!

I should have made a bigger portion because it was delicious!

Dessert:

I know this is NOT a healthy cereal, but I love cereal and I could eat it for probably any meal.. And this was my sweet treat for the day!

New Cinnamon Roll Captain Crunch- Amazing!
