Bumming it on a Sunday

Happy Monday! Yesterday was a little bit of a bumming it day for me. I did go to the gym, but I slept in super late and then just rolled out of my apartment in gym clothes. I knew I was only going to the gym so didn’t feel the need to get all dolled up.

I had a huge thing of overnight oatmeal in the morning with chopped almonds on top. So filling!

love the crunch

Phoebs and I headed to G-Mamas and Bella showed up. Look at this kid’s manicure!

Reminds me I should at least paint mine...

After my pre-gym snacks I hit the gym. I started with 22 minutes on the stair master, then hit chest. Here’s my workout:

  • Pushups on the bosu (flat black part), TOES ONLY! 12 reps x 4 sets (this really works your core by doing them on the bosu, what an added bonus!)
  • Chest presses lying down on the bench, 40 lbs 15 reps x 2 sets, then 50 lbs 12 reps x 2 sets
  • Chest Fly’s (machine), 45 lbs 15 reps x 2 sets, then 50 lbs 12 reps x 2 sets
  • Chest Open and Close (arms like a shoulder press, squeeze pecs in and out), 17.5 lb weights 12 reps x 4 sets
  • Around the worlds with 10 lb weights. Lay down on a bench, bring arms with weights straight to the sides, palms up, now do a semicircle up towards your head and back down to the starting point. 8 reps x 4 sets
  • Cable cross overs single arm, 12 lbs 12 reps x 4 sets each arm
  • Mountain climbers on bosu (I do these slow and controlled, it’s almost like an oblique twist rather than a mountain climber)- 30 reps x 3 sets
  • Planks on the bosu, 40 seconds x 2 sets

I also did my regular “in between sets” exercises: side bends, standing crunches, and torso twists 🙂

Then back to the arc trainer for 20 minutes!

Always a strong finish!

At home I made a delicious dinner including RAVENS PURPLE potatoes and onions, bok choy, and a Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna

I also meal prepped for the week. I included my Clean Pulled BBQ Chicken in my meals this week 🙂

I love onion in the oven! So delicious and sweet (just some olive oil spray)

Meals all prepped for the week. I have my emergency snacks up top, and then my greek yogurts for the morning and lunches!

I ended up getting all my night chores done at a semi-reasonable hour. Sometimes I am up until 2am finishing things up the night before work (and up at 430… yeah). Laundry was pretty much complete (minus a few things that I won’t need this week), meals prepped, blogs complete, bags packed for work and gym, and recipe for Veria done! I can’t wait to see it!

My weekend flew by way too fast and I feel like I hardly had any time with Miss Buffay

Hoping to actually get out on time today so I can head to the gym for arms. Arm day is always a power session with no breaks because I alternate between bicep and tricep exercises. The next day I am always so sore, but the good sore! Sore means change and progress 🙂

Have a wonderful week! If you start to have a bad day, change it and put a smile on your face 🙂

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,

    Hi Minnie,
    You look great! Love your arms. I will make sure to check the Veria site. I know how creative you are when it comes to healthy recipes.
    Enjoy you week!
    Best,

  3. Those purple potatoes look interesting, is there texture more like white or sweet potatoes? I love seeing your breakfasts and lunch all ready, that must make mornings so much easier!

    • They are like white potatoes. I am a sweet potato fan 100%, but it’s purple fever in Baltimore right now! And yes I love grabbing my lunch all ready to go in the morning. So much easier 🙂
