Happy Monday, and a happy Monday it was!
This morning started out like a Monday should, by waking up after a great night’s sleep and heading to the gym to get my butt kicked! I teamed up with Angela and we hit the new Group Coaching Fat Loss class this morning. Not that Ang needs Fat Loss, at all, but I’m glad we did it. We usually run intervals on Monday’s and this was soooooooo much better. It was run by the gigantic Dan Chin and 4 other trainers joined Angela and I in the butt kicking marathon. We did squats, we did kettlebells, we did push ups, weight machines, quad pulls, planks, basically Bob and Jillian had NOTHIN’ on this work out. I was a hot sweaty mess in no time, LOVE it! It was a 45 minute class, non stop, and I burned 461 cals with a max heart rate of 195 averge rate was 170. I’m tellin’ ya friends invest in a heart monitor/calorie burn tracker to wear during a work out. You will truly go harder and burn more!
After my work out I re-fueled with one of my fave yummies! Strawberry cream cheese roll up!
Wheat tortilla, slather of fat free cream cheese and sliced strawberries!!! Roll up and enjoy!
Before I showered and in between the disgusting rain bursts, I took Miss Daisy doo for a walk. She’s so tiny! I can’t wait till she’s bigger and we can go run!
Lunch today was quick, and not so hot! The hubby was in the mood for Subway so I had him pick me up a little sammie too.
6 inch, honey oat wheat bread, chicken breast, yellow peppers, onion, and lettuce…….NOT GOOD! I was not feelin’ this sandwich at all. I’m not the biggest Subway fan though, never really have been.
Anyway, kitchen construction continued again today so Zac and I took a little drive, picked up a few things at Target and then ended up back home because the weather was DISGUSTING.
There was nothing else to do but SHOP! So the mother in law, me and Zac packed it up and hit Macy’s! I wanted a dress for my birthday dinner party this Thursday night and ended up finding 3 all for $105! Yay for the awesome sale at Macy’s! I was going to take pics and post the dresses…….but nah you’ll have to wait! You’ll see the first on Thursday and the other 2 are for events in May! I was so excited to go in to Macy’s shop in the regular section, and buy a size 10p! For the first time in a very very very long time that P means Petite and not Plus! What a glorious feeling. All of my hard work and determination was so worth it as I browsed the racks. I haven’t purchased a dress, other than my wedding gown, since 1999 so this was monumental. I think my guests will be surprised, I don’t think my husband has ever seen me in a real dress before LOL.

It’s never to late to Pledge for a healthier life!!
After the thrill of shopping, I was hungry! I called in an order to this cute little cafe near our house. I decided on a Caprese salad and grilled chicken with no dressing. ( I drizzled my own Balsamic, that way I was in control) It was a nice sized salad and a break from PBJ and Lean Cuisine!
And for dessert, a GLOW Gluten Free Gingersnap cookie!
Just when I think the last cookie was the best cookie ever I open a new box and BAM! I’m GLOWing all over again! Soft, chewy, and the perfect mix of Ginger and Snap! The crew at GLOW has done it again! AMAZING! The chocolate chip cookie is next, I may have to retire my taste buds ;).
I think i will sign off for tonight! Long day and a long week filled with hard work to enjoy that birthday dinner! I will be at ZUMBA tomorrow morning!!! So excited! Then running on Wednesday and Spin for Thursday-AKA Birthday day!!! I should be able to enjoy a nice dinner, drink, and some Birthday cake after all of that!
