Tonight I gave in to one of my most fundamental and dangerous cravings. BIRTHDAY CAKE!
My amazing dad had a birthday today…and I couldn’t resist picking up a cake. Did I mention that old fashioned, lard based icing, with white spongy cake, is like……my ARCH nemesis. I love it, so.
If you’re going to have cake, it NEEDS to be a corner piece. 😉 Happy Birthday dad, you rock! As a present, I signed him up for a local 5k in a couple of weeks! It’s going to be so much fun having him there!
Rewinding a bit, lets go back to 5am land this morning. (which seems like 4 years ago)
My mirror is mucho-disgustingo. I need to work on that. And don’t be hatin’ on my lobster pajamas. You know you heart them.
Another busy day included:
- 6:00am BodyPump
- 12:15pm Express Sculpt
- 4:30pm KidFit High School
- 5:30pm Spin
I also conquered 30 minutes on the AMT while chatting it up with Christie somewhere in there.
Met Emily at 6am where BodyPump kicked my toosh. This routine is amaaaaaazingly tough. I love it alot. The bicep segment is I-N-S-A-N-E and finishes off with a 1 minute band burnout. OUCH.
Once I completely exhausted my muscles this morning, I was welcomed with a nice surprise. Steel Cut Oats that had been cooking in the crockpot all night!
Last night I just combined 1 cup of Steel Cut Oats, 5 Cups Almond Milk, and 8 TBSP Chia Seeds. It’s a pretty sweet deal having all your oats ready to go for the week.
Todays batch was simple and yummy. Big bowl of oats topped with Almond Butter drizzle, and some Chilean Flame Raisins:
Pretty darn fantasmic.
Speaking of fantasmic, Express Sculpt was equally as joyous today. Gotta love jumping bench squats….clean and presses, and skull crushers for an awesome 30 minute weight workout. “Tripeps” are SO much fun to work, right Kimmy?!?!?! 😉
Fantasmic for the third time came into play when I went to one of my favorite locals for lunch, Cranberries!
The “souper salad” allows you to start with a bed of romaine lettuce, and then top it with three pre-made various salads. So delicious!
Cranberry Rice, Potato, and Oriental = WIN! Although the potato was a bit mayo’ish.
This place rocks!
The raspberry tea is pretty much bangin’
And on that note, this completely random post draws to a close.
How do you strength train? Do you follow a routine, and if so…what groups do you work, and how many days a week??? Do you take any strength classes?
