Happy Thursday everyone!
I hope you’ve been enjoying the recipes! I’ve been eating them up like a crazy! Today feels like its been jam PACKED. I had to be at work at 9 a.m. this morning, so, no gym for me. Instead, I busted out the Lebert equalizer, and did a quick 15 min powerhouse circuit. Of course I woke up ready for some yum in the tum :) I had a a quick breakfast. CG bran crisp bread, with some raw hemp butter, and Nature’s Hollow sugar free preserves. Oh yeah, sprinkled with raw cacao nibs. BOMB.

If you’ve never heard of the Lebert Equalizer, you have NOW! These things are genius. Great for agility training, pull ups, push ups, dips, you name it. They are perfect if you haven’t got the space to do too much. I first heard of them through my girls at Purely Twins. I am so grateful, I immediately ordered them online.

I was dying after! Quick but effective. Strength trading using your own body weight. The only rest is between set one and two. My muscles were burning. Morning sweat sesh… A SUCCESS.

After my workout, I was in the mood for a cookie with my coffee. I’ve always been more of a “sweets for breakfast” kinda gal, so when I found this recipe, I knew it was perfect for me! It’s packed full of the perfect blend of carbs, protein, and fat. Mostly protein:) the carb comes from the banana. I will post the recipe soon!! It took all of 15 minutes! Freakin no time!

I had 2 cookies, and hoped in the shower.

Leave it to clients to F*@k up your ROLL!
Today, the salon was FULL of sugar!!
Efffffff me.

The first one I tried, I put it in my mouth, just to taste, spit it out. It was delicious. Too good. If I had one, it would be over, the batch would be mine….
Well, of course, there were three different types… By the time I tried the 3rd variety, I swallowed.
The “extremist” came out in me, and “moderation” was out of the question, so I walked away after 2.
Ok… 2 1/2;)

Although today was quite busy, I managed to squeeze in getting my color did. Just my roots. Yes I have grey…not much, but, no thanks.
I always leave the ends out, I like them lighter. I’m doing the whole hombre thing I guess.

After work, i heajded straight To the studio.You may have taken a local Zumba class, maybe at your gym? Well, nothing compares to this class. Taught by Sandy Campanella, a trained dancer at some of the top schools, brings something very special to the table. Great choreography (this ain’t jazzercise), amazing physical challenge,, and always full of energy. I will be doing a whole Q & A with her coming up, so be on the lookout!
Btw, I reckon I burned 500 cals.
Yep.
