Not to Pull a Jodie Foster But…

Welcome to Wednesday again. It’s not Friday, but it’s better than Monday right? That’s how I look at it!

Yesterday was a mixed bag of emotions for me. At one point I was really happy and in a good mood, then I felt sick, then happy again, then I was extremely angry, then in the evening a bit melancholy. Oh being a woman…

The morning started with my cottage cheese and jam

I love strawberry preserves!

And a LARGE coffee ๐Ÿ™‚

The morning went super fast. I was actually able to sit down and have lunch with some of the residents! It was nice!

Sugar snap peas! yum yum

In the afternoon I was pulled to the OR. I was super excited! But I started to have a headache right before I went in. By the time the case was almost over I felt full blown nausea again. I don’t know what is going on! Maybe I have some sort of bug? Not sure. And before I get asked this question again, NO bun in the oven, promise!

Luckily by the time 4:30 rolled around I was feeling better and changed for the gym. Look at my new tank! Obsessed.

Today I Will Kill It. Love motivational tanks!

I did a back routine along with 30 minutes of cardio (15 arc trainer, 15 elliptical)

Back:

  • Low cable back rows (narrow), 70 lbs 12 reps x 1 set, 80 lbs 12 reps x 2 sets, then 90 lbs 12 reps x 1 set
  • Underhand lat pulldowns, 40 lbs, 15 reps x 3 sets, then 50 lbs, 10 reps x 1 set
  • Lat pulldowns behind neck, 40 lbs, 12 reps x 3 sets, then 50 lbs, 10 reps x 1 set
  • Wide low rows/mini squeeze with 20 lb kettles each hand, 12 reps x 4 sets
  • Back extensions using the stand and a 25 lb plate, 10 reps x 4 sets
  • Light dead lifts with 35 lb kettle bell. Bend over, flat back, legs straight, hold kettle bell with both hands, mini pulses up working the low back. 10 pulses x 4 sets
  • Lat pulldowns with single handle grips (cables), 45 lbs, 12 reps x 2 sets, then alternating singles, 16 reps x 2 sets

Sexy backs all around ๐Ÿ™‚

Didn't get to do real dead lifts today because it was so crowded! Hopefully first thing I'll knock out next gym session

I finished with bosu pushups and then alternated with some squats on the bosu just to loosen up my legs!

Why do I use the bosu so much? Because it works your core so much (the balance). This poor guy is only used by me at the gym!

So why was I so angry? Well because you could barely move in my gym yesterday. I’m really glad I get creative with my workouts and can adapt easily because all the machines are taken! There was no way I was getting a stairmaster, I refuse to wait around! I also refuse to leave, so I just make do!

When I came home Phoebe was so happy to see me!

I look so tired, she looks so happy!

I look so tired, she looks so happy!

We made Skinny Deviled Eggs!ย

This appetizer has 65 calories per serving (2 pieces), 1.3 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of carbs, and 11.6 grams of protein! Protein packed!

I also had some leftover Muffin Truffles in my freezer that I thawed and added some Xylitol to (hey X for Xyltiol!) I needed a sweet pick me up ๐Ÿ™‚

I have to end today’s blog with a quick mention about my Facebook accounts. I realize I share about 80% of my life with my readers and the world, but there are certain things I choose not to share. This is just because I want to keep certain things private, which I’m sure you guys understand! Sorry for pulling a Jodie Foster about privacy ๐Ÿ˜‰

While I am so flattered by the friend requests to my personal Facebook account, I like to keep this account separate from my blog life. I do post my blog on my personal account for friends to take a peek at, but I think I will end doing that as well and keep all blog related things on my SkinnyMinnieMoves Facebook page. So if you want to talk to me on Facebook you can contact me there! I update it everyday.ย Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚

Kill it in the gym! WIth a smile of course :)

  1. Haha love that tank! I don’t blame you for being upset about the gym, makes it hard for you to do what you love! I’d be upset lol, if something stops me from doing my workouts, it’s just frustrating, you don’t have control and can’t do anything :/ I hope today isn’t crowded!!

  2. It seems you are kind of a genius when it comes to making not-so-healthy food healthy. So I kind of have a challenge for you ๐Ÿ™‚ Around Easter I always get a craving for peanut butter rice crispies with chocolate… the challenge: is there anything I can do to make these not so unhealthy??? If not I can always accept it and indulge! Just thought i’d see if you had any ideas! Thanks for the help! Your blog is great and so motivating!!

    • Awww thanks! Creative genes I guess. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! I did peanut butter cups per request and I can so do these! I googled what you are talking about to make sure. So these are just peanut butter rice krispies squares with a layer of chocolate on top right? Might not be exact but I can do a healthier version!

      • Aww thanks! That’s awesome! Yup, just PB rice crispies with chocolate on top ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Okay good! I have big plans for this actually! After appetizer week is over I’ll try to make these. I found these great flavor packets last week that are 10 calories and have a chocolate marshmallow taste! Perfect find. I get excited for requests, but pressure is on! ๐Ÿ˜‰
