Hey y’all!!! Hope everyone’s week is off to a fabulous start! Before I get into it…I must admit: 3 cheat meals last week. Omg. Ok..I’m done. Moving on:) Today is gonna be fab. Not too many plans. Seeing the dentist today…which, love him I swear…but I hate having to see him. Lol.
I spent Sunday with the folks so…sadly, I missed hitting up my usual Farmer’s Market, so I had to get my weekly dose of fresh flowers from Whole Foods. Aka: Super fucking expensive flower selection. This week, it’s white roses. Feeling like a virgin;)
Aren’t they perfect? And…they smell like heaven.
Ok, so I know it’s not #flexfriday but, I had to show off my new Reebok cross fit tank!
Of course I won’t be showing it off without the hard work that comes with that shit! Lol
Show your strength ladies! C’mon;)
Hit the gym early this A.M. to get in a sweaty cardio session in before having to get my mouth drilled.
I did 30 minutes of alternating resistance on the elliptical.
3 minutes @ resistance 5 / incline 9
2 minutes @ resistance 10 / incline 5
For 30 minutes
15 minutes on stairmaster on “fit test”
I planned to try one of these amazing 1000 calorie burning ass kickers this morning, but I ran outta time. I know.excuses…excuses.
Pretty gnarly right!? I found these on Pinterest, and had to share. I’m dying to give them a try and see which way I can stand more. Ha;)
Anyway….this week,it’s on. Who’s with me!!!???
You see. My problem is never a lack of motivation to work out, it’s more my diet. I do really well for a bit, then tend to throw it all out the window for a couple days. No bueno. All that work…and sometimes for nothing. What has improved, is my guilt and self punishment. I have gotten sooooo much better at controlling the binges, and refusing to feel guilty.
I’m babbling. Give this workout a try. If this is all you do all week, then be it. Remember…just move. You’re beating everyone on the couch;)
So, 10:00 A.M. Came damn quick. Ughhhhhhhh. Time for some really exciting dental work.
I have to get… Wait for it…. A CROWN!!!!! Ajhhhhhhhhh. Sick.
This is my amazing, genius dentist, Dr. Ourfalian.
Listen, I hate dental work as much as the next cry baby, but he just, absolutely makes the visit sooooo pleasant. He is very gentle, conservative & very honest. Everyone that I’ve recommended to him, has loved him.
I don’t think I have good teeth genes, so I’ve really got to keep with regular 6 month cleanings, as well as flossing after every meal. Do you guys really floss after every meal? I feel like a creep for only flossing once a day. Sometimes, I even forget to do that. Omg. So bad. I started to notice that my gums would bleed when I would floss sometimes…and, that my friends…is NOT THE BUSINESS!
In doing some research, I came across this. VERY interesting. Sometimes, we forget how much bacteria can enter through our mouths. Read this bit, and you will be surprised.
I fu*%ing hate flossing, not gonna lie, but…THERE’S HOPE! My friend told me about these and I immediately stopped at Walgreens after my appt to buy em’
The rest of the day was free. (Yeayyyyyyyy) I got home & of course, I was starving. One problem….if I tried to eat anything that required chewing, I would chew off my tongue. So, I had extra cooked oatmeal with flax milk, chia seeds, raisins, mashed figs, and protein powder.
Oh, and a fudgesicle.lol.
Since I didn’t get to my 1000 cal burning workout (above), I thought maybe I would make it to a late night yoga class.
Yep….it’s now 7:30 p.m…..haven’t been able to get off the couch from so much mouth pain.
No more anesthesia. Haha.
Hey, getting a crown is not exactly pain free kids. Wow.
Instead….I cooked the rest of the day. Making dinner and meal prepping tomorrow’s packed lunch.
I hadn’t gone grocery shopping, but I pulled out a few fridge staples, And made something sooooo yummy for dinner.
LAUGHING COW LITE WEDGES
- 2 organic zucchinis (makes 4 boats)
- 2 Laughing Cow wedges (I love Garlic & Herb)
- 1 Lrg garlic clove (finely chopped)
- 2 shallots (finely sliced)
- Fresh cracked pepper and sea salt.
- Pre-heat oven 375 degrees.
- slice both zucchinis lengthwise.
- With a small spoon, scoop out the center.
- Add ½ a wedge of The Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb LIGHT cheese into each ½ of zucchini.
- Lightly sauté thinly sliced shallots and chopped garlic.
- Top stuffed boats with sauté mix.
- bake face up for 25 minutes.
4 boats= 190 calories!!! Amazing!
These are also great for party appetizers! The cheese wedges have so much great flavor that you don’t have to saturate them in sauce or loads of salt & spices.
By now…I can feel my lips. Dinner is served;)
You don’t know me at all if you think I would finish off my night without dessert;)
While skimming through my instagram feed, I came across @angelamccafferty and her ridiculous…super healthy recipe, motivation, and fitness profile. I searched through her pics, and found my inspiration for tonight’s dessert!
Just a few alterations to the recipe… Check it out…print that shit…and make it every night!
