Good Morning!  Happy Friday!

First I want to tell you the winner of the About Time Protein Giveaway!  The winner is:

Nicole @ FruitnFitness

I would love to win this package to try the new flavors of protein powder! Currently I use vanilla a lot because it is so versatile.

Nicole, email me at fitcupcaker at gmail dot com with your address so I can mail your goodies 🙂

Yesterday before I hit the gym I made an awesome breakfast.  I can take my time with breakfast when I don’t have to work and I love it because it’s my favorite meal!


1 egg – 3 egg whites – lean ground turkey – handful of spinach – tomatoes – sprinkle of cheese = perfection

A little while later I went to the gym and did an awesome plank workout that I kind of adapted from Lori and Michelle.  They always have great workouts.  They have a 5 minute plank workout (but I can’t do a plank for 5 minutes) so I came up with a tabata workout for the abs!

I used my gymboss timer and set it for 30 seconds work 10 seconds rest.  I did each exercise for 3 rounds so the whole workout is 6 minutes long.


I love using my gymboss timer for tabatas.  If you don’t have one of these you can easily download a tabata timer app to your phone and it works just as good 🙂

So here’s the workout!

Rest 30 seconds to 1 minutes between exercises.

Here is some more information on the following workouts:

Good Morning!

Sunday During the Superbowl, what was I doing?  Baking!  Well, I did watch some of the Superbowl…the commercials, the half time show, and the last ten minutes of the game 🙂  It was such a good/close game!   I’ve been into muffins lately, and you probably know this if you read my blog.  Last week I made carrot cake muffins, and one of my new favorite breakfasts: Blueberry Muffin Bake.

So I decided I would make a snack with some sweet potatoes that have been sitting in the refrigerator dying to be used.

Paleo Sunshine Muffins it was!

I can honestly say that this is one of the tastiest muffins I’ve ever had.
