Happy Friday!

I decided I am going to try to do a FLASHBACK FRIDAY every week.

 I will post it on either Friday or Saturday and it will consist of some highlighted workouts and food from the week.

A lot of people do “Fitness Friday or Fun Fact Friday” so I am going to do “Flashback Friday” and you guys can let me know what you think!? …..and BE HONEST!

flashback friday

I obviously love posting pictures and in depth details about my workouts because I want you guys to try them!   I always want to get a good workout in and sometimes I even post how many calories I burn etc…  Even when I only get 30-40 minutes of weight lifting in I still like to let you guys know about it!  Many tabata’s can be done at home with minimal equipment too!  I know it is hard sometimes to get out of the house when its freeeeeezing out!

Food is another topic I discuss frequently 🙂 It’s my favorite part about blogging.   I love finding new meals and making my own twists on recipes.

So here goes nothing…

Saturday: Back and Abs

Sunday: Chest and Legs

Monday: Pushup Challenge Day #1/ Biceps and Triceps

I hope everyone likes my Friday Flashbacks!

Have a good weekend everyone!

I had a Fantastic Friday!

I started off my day with a Protein Packed Breakfast

Protein Oatmeal loaf (my last piece) with chocolate protein icing and almond butter!

For the chocolate protein icing :  just mix chocolate protein powder with water until a thin pudding consistency forms 🙂

Pour over the loaf and microwave until the whole dish is warm and gooey!

I drank my pre workout “white flood”, which I also finished off today, on the way to the gym.

I braved the snow…which actually wasn’t that bad!


We worked on ARMS!  My favorite.


10 min. stairmaster- which kicked my butt!  If you think the stairmaster is a joke workout- you are wrong!

10 min. elliptical

strong arms

Here I am doing the seated bicep curls – inner and outer.  We basically did them until failure.  I did 12-15 each set.

My arms were dead after that one!

Not before long my stomach was starving!

For lunch I made a turkey burger with a fried egg, avocado, and leftover cheezy cauliflower mash.  I also ate some grape tomatoes straight from the carton.  Pretty random I know and it kept me full for a long time!

The perfect bite!

Before I took Alec to meet his mom I snacked on 2 belvita breakfast wafers.  I love ALL of the flavors 🙂

I did a lot of running around, plus laundry, but it was still a good day.

Why can’t my off days look like this!?!

And then for a snack I had 2 Energizing PB Date Balls to hold me over until my MEXICAN dinner!

(recipe to come- this is another great one!)

We went out for Mexican food for dinner with our friends and I got the shrimp fajitas which were amazing!
