Jumping Beans

Monday! I couldn’t be LESS excited about this. For some reason last night I had the worst Sunday blues. I’ve been sad about it being Monday before, but this was full on dread, almost in tears, please don’t take my weekend away from me blues. Not sure why.

Maybe because yesterday was a good day! I woke up and had breakfast before hitting the gym early.

It was shoulder day and I switched it up! I found some new workouts on Bodybuilding.com to change my routine a little bit. It’s never good to do the same things over and over, you need to tweak things to make changes in your body. Some of them I put links to the exercises instead of me explaining!

Here’s my Shoulder routine:Ā 

Different exercises for me! Loved them

In the car I inhaled 2 Quest bars. I love these! They are the purest protein bar out there. Just a few ingredients and 20-21 grams of protein per bar. The chocolate chip cookie dough is amazing.

When I got home I showered and got dressed for Mother’s Day! I planned on going to G-Mama and Pop Pops to let Phoebe play a bit, then we were headed to my sisters house for a little BBQ.

My new top!

Phoebe gave me a Mother’s Day kiss and off we went

I bought G-Mama a new Pandora rope bracelet. She had one before that was pretty much Dunzo, so I bought the black triple rope and a new charm to go with her GMAMA blocks. This one was a mother daughter heart. Each person gets a red heart that says mother or daughter and together they clamp to make a bigger heart.

Our Pandoras!

Our Pandoras! Mine has a dog, a filler, the daughter heart, a K, A good luck, and a Russian doll šŸ™‚

Once we arrived at my sisters house she had lots of food of course! Check it out

For dinner the guys had steaks, potatoes, shrimp salad, wings, etc. I stuck to chicken breast and fruit! Oh and some corn.

My din din! Chicken on the grill is so great

Later on when I came home I took some pics of Phoebe because she is so pretty from her bath! She’s actually cream again.

Cream puff!

Don't you just love when dogs do the head tilt?

  1. That food set up looks way better than what my family had lol! Aw, Phoebe is so cute šŸ™‚ I hope today goes by fast for you!!

  2. Hi!, I’ve ordered some quest bars online, just waiting for them to be delivered! Can’t wait, I’ve heard such good things about them. What are your favorite flavours? I wish my gym had a stair/step machine, your workout looks intense, well done. Tam

    • Cookie dough is the BEST. It’s a new flavor and def tastes like a cookie. I didn’t care for the PB&J. You can’t taste the J!

  3. Looks like a awesome day!! The top looks great! I have to say the quest bar looks delish – sometimes it’s hard to find a good tasting protein bar. I LOVE bodybuilding.com I like the fact you can click on a body part, and it shows specific things for it! Great website.

  4. I love your Pandoras! My bracelet is the standard silver chain, but you really rock the rope! Also, I am dying to try the Quest protein bars! Where do you buy yours and how do you incorporate them into your diet/how frequently do you eat them?

    • Thanks! Love the rope šŸ™‚ I bought mine at GNC this week because they were buy 3 get 1 free and then they have the gold membership card FREE this week! Usually is 15 bucks. I either eat them during my work mornings to get me going or if I have to go somewhere right after the gym and I am not going straight home I have them right after!
