Yeay!! The weekend is finally here! Happy Sunday babes! Today is SUPERBOWL Sunday, and I’ve decided, instead of going to a bar, I would watch it on my cozy couch! I honestly just couldn’t be bothered to go out. It was a super busy and FIT morning, and I’ve got a lot of great stuff to share today, so I figured I could stream the game on my computer (since my loser ass doesn’t even have a cable box) and catch up on some blogging:)

Last night my girlfriends took me out for some delicious Mexican food to celebrate my bday;) a few days late… I love when my birthday drags out for a week.
We had skinny margaritas
And shared chicken fajitas,chips and guacamole,and a beef taco salad.
Oh I almost forgot…the flan I devoured.
We gossiped all night long, and you wouldn’t believe when I say that, I actually slept in till 730 this morning!! WooooHoooooo!
I think my body just needed it.
So this morning, I woke up refreshed and ready to start my scheduled workout and clean eating week. (My wk starts on Sundays)

Hallelujah for Purely Twins who share such great ideas for low carb eaters! They are my go to every morning!
I was craving something hearty this morning, especially since I knew I would be doing bank to back classes today. On my days off, I tend to really hit it hard, in case I miss a scheduled workout during the week.
So this morning was their recipe for a single serving coconut bread.

20130203-151608.jpg

Seriously the easiest thing I’ve ever made. It’s 3 ingredients!

I doubled the recipe, cuz I knew I would want more than a single serving;) hehe.
So here it is:

2 tbsps coconut flour
2 eggs or 1 egg two egg whites
2 tsp gelatin

Super interesting! I never would’ve thought to use gelatin..genius!
This was a hit for me… Making this all the time now! Yipeeeeeeeee ;)

20130203-151637.jpg

I made them into pancakes;) duh.
Andddd heart shaped for Valentines Day. Btw..no plans for that day yet… Ahhheemmmm boys… ;) lol

20130203-152609.jpg

I drizzles some sugar free ( naturally sweetened with xylitol) honey. Buy here. ( on the right)
Sprinkled some unsweetened coconut and topped with blackberries. ( I just defrosted some frozen ones in the micro and they ended a bit juicy, yum.com.

20130203-152630.jpg

I was feeling reeeealllll cozy, eating pancakes and chillin in my pj’s, but I had to get movin soon, so I made sure to double up on my espresso;) 2 shots please….

20130203-152644.jpg

9:00 a.m. Was my first class of yoga in ages. I think the last time I was doing yoga, was when I was in Nicaragua. (Feb). I grabbed a few essentials, and headed out the door. I could hear Willy freaking out scratching the door. Ugh.

20130203-152708.jpg

Super stoked on my green juice from Earthbar!
I thought this would be great after my two classes back to back to replenish my body. And what better way than with fruits and veggies! This particular one was kale, lemon, green apple, and cucumber.

20130203-153418.jpg

I bought a 10 class series at Rising Lotus Yoga from groupon. A gift to myself for my birthday;) I was starting to feel I needed something just like this 1 time a week to break up my routine. I was super excited to see If I could still werrrrk it;) lol
I arrived a few minutes early, to sign in and get a good spot. I met the instructor, who was such a sweet man. This class was scheduled for an hour and 1/2. Wow.

20130203-153152.jpg

Class was amazing!! Like soooooo great! I got right back into it as if it was yesterday! I felt flexible and full of energy. I wore my heart rate monitor, of course, and burned 200 calories. Although that may not seem like a lot, and yes, it actually isn’t that much…. I wasn’t really doing it for that. I was planning to burn at least 600 in my next class, so I wasn’t trippin. I wanted to incorporate this type of exercise in my regimen in order to encourage better breathing, stretching, flexibility, and strength.

After yoga, I quickly stopped at home to take Willy out for a walk. He needs to release some of that gnarly anxiousness and energy. Then, I headed straight to Zumba. Class was taught by Lucia today, who, bless her, was sick, and still brought it ON!
I burned almost 700 cals in that hour! Holy shizzzzzleeee! That’s what I like to see.
After class, my body was like ” k, byeeeeeee”.

20130203-153215.jpg

I came home and immediately prepared myself an protein packed lunch. I find that eating my protein within 30 minutes of exersice increases muscle growth and repairs my muscle tissue.
So, lunch consisted of:
5 oz chicken breast topped with part skin mozzarella
Cucumber slices with 2 tbsp hummus
2 hard boiled egg whites

I could tell my body was craving protein, Cuz I ate that shit up like I was being chased by a train!

My favorite part of a meal… dessert!

I had one of my SUPERBOWL faves that I posted yesterday:) This was the one coated in PB2. I enjoyed it allllllll. I just realized how silly this pic is… Ummmmm ok.

20130203-153908.jpg

BIG GAME Y’ALL!!! Lol, I’m streaming it on my Mac while enjoying a homemade skinny margarita! So good. This is my absolute drink of choice! Well, other than red wine of course, but who drinks red wine while watching superbowl….not I. I’m not a huge fan of the teams playing, so really, I could give a s#*t who wins, but I love football, so I’m stoked:) oh and BTW…I am like a teenager waiting for Beyonce to perform halftime! Ahhhhhh, I think she is sooo fierce!

20130203-162823.jpg

I can’t remember where I got this recipe exactly but it’s the best Margarita I’ve ever had! Now that I’ve had this clean version, I can’t ever have one of those ultra sweet, and sour, heavy on the mix ones. No thanks! They are absolutely full of sugar, and god knows what.

20130203-163029.jpg

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup lime juice

1 cup water

20 drops liquid stevia

6 oz tequila

2 oz fresh-squeezed orange juice

Ice

Orange zest

Salt for glass rim (optional)

20130203-163059.jpg

This recipe is makes a small pitcher, and serves 4.
Use a lemon juicer to get the max out of the fruit, and makes your life easier:)

20130203-163118.jpg
This is so on point! When I’m out at a Mexican restaurant, and there version of a skinny margarita is one with agave… I say ” No thanks, I’ll just have tequila on the rocks with lots and lots of lime and a spash of orange please” and I bust out my stevia from my purse like a creep. I swear, people stare as if I was drugging myself. Lol. With my lil stevia drops. Hahahaha

20130203-163134.jpg

I ended up having an early dinner.I had to do some clients tonight, and didn’t want to be eating at 9.00 p.m.
Tonight’s dinner was no shocker. Lol. Chicken breast, lemon/chipotle baby broccoli ( my everything) and 2 hard boiled egg whites.
This is my absolute favorite way to eat broccoli. I wayyyy prefer baby broccoli to the fatter, shorter one. These have more of a crunch, which I love. I used to HATE brocolli!

Dessert was a handful of RAW almonds and dried mulberries.
Anyway…what’s even MORE exciting… Is that the Healthy Self challenge has started today! Thanks girls for putting this on! Now, I’m passing it along for all of you babes to do it with me!
