Hurts to Walk.

Good Morning! Happy Saturday πŸ˜€

Last night Craig & I had date night, but at home. πŸ™‚ I love those. I rented Little Fockers, and picked up Chipotle…plus some frozen yogurt for dessert.

Chicken salad! I LOVE Chipotle- sooooo good & I love how it’s so fresh.

Cake batter & vanilla frozen yogurt..topped with Trix, Cap’n Crunch, & Fruity Pebbles. I always love cereal for the toppings. I forget who else always puts cereal on their frozen yogurt, but I know I always see it on someone’s blog. πŸ™‚

Now, I definitely DID pay for eating this frozen yogurt. Being lactose intolerant SUCKS…but I have been craving frozen yogurt lately, so I just had to have some. …sometimes ya just gotta pay the price πŸ˜‰

Do you have any fun plans today?
My Mom & Aunt will be here shortly- we are just going to drive out to the venue for our wedding. My Aunt wanted to drive out there before the wedding so that she knows exactly where to go & so that she doesn’t get lost. My Mom is bringing my Aunt down; I really just think my Mom loves her new vehicle so she tries to drive it as much as possible- haha πŸ˜€

So this afternoon will be a girls afternoon! Before they get here, the mister (& soon to be hubby- πŸ˜‰ ) & I are hitting the gym. (we actually just got back πŸ™‚ )

Tonight Craig &Β I are babysitting our cute little nephew, Ethan, so be prepared for some adorable pictures πŸ˜‰

I haven’t put any workouts on here lately, so I thought I would share with you the one I did yesterday morning. I like to call it ‘the leg workout where walking will even be hard to do once you finish.’ Quite the title, huh?! πŸ˜‰

I’m going to put the weight that I used, but remember you can always change it to whatever fits best for YOU & your training routine!

So, here it is:

  1. Nice workout!! Love to see you working in the lower rep ranges on the compound lifts!!!!! πŸ™‚

    I put cereal in my protein smoothies haha. I just love the mixture of creamy and crunchy textures!

  2. I have never tried putting cereal on my frozen yogurt, but I will surely be trying this next time I get it πŸ™‚ I am sorry to hear about your belly issues though! My ex-boyfriend was lactose intolerant and he loved ice cream too and sometimes just said, the hell with it, eating the delicious treat anyway! But of course paying for it later ughh
    I wish I seen this workout earlier! I went to the gym with no plan and didn’t get much accomplished haha
    Have fun with your mom and aunt πŸ™‚
