Seizing Legs and Momma’s Birthday!

What a workout Heather put me through this evening. She had my legs shaking and seizing like an earthquake, and at one point when I mentioned how sweaty I was, she pointed out that I was so drenched that it looked like I had just showered. Aint that sexy!

I was literally dripping sweat onto the floor with every body movement. So stinkin’ gross!

Heather had my workout centered around the dredded Smith Machine, where I did 3 sets of 10 squats with different variations with my stance. The first I was wide legged, the 2nd set my feet were shoulder-width apart, and the 3rd set my feet were together. Heather then put my through sumo squats, before I did weighted bar lunges and shoulder work.

Thankfully my cousin Nikki who was at the gym taking a spinning class came over to say bye to me after her class and she saved me by giving me a quick breather in between sets.

Then it was back to Heather kicking my ass, but I love the pain. She makes pain feel so good, and she laughs at my jokes so I couldn’t ask for a better trainer. 😉

When I got home I fixed myself another batch of 3-Ingredient Healthy Pancakes, before we started to celebrate my Mom’s birthday and my parent’s 32nd wedding anniversary.

My Mom got her favorite Yankee Candle, Pink Sands, along with the car freshener, a book, an Imax and Nook gift card, a sweater and tank top and Bath & Body Works Christmas scented plug-ins.

Ryan and I also got them a $75 gift card to The Library, an expensive restaurant they went to on the seacoast for their anniversary last year.

Then it was time to celebrate with strawberry cheesecake.

Oh my goodness. I dug right into my slice and didn’t feel guilty one bit. Hey, I kicked ass at the gym this evening so it was earned!

Now I’m snuggled on the couch and watching the 2-night finale of Dancing with the Stars. Go Kelly & Val!

A Night of my Favorite Things

My Monday evening has been full of my favorite things.

Breakfast for dinner. Oh hell ya. Eggs and orange marmalade toast. BETTER.

Don’t judge my paper plate or lack of setup of my dinner. I was hungry and needed this food in my belly STAT.

Tonight I realized that the texture of the orange rinds in the marmalade is a little too much for me. My mom told me that they’re always in there, but maybe because I’m only used to the marmalade mini containers at diners don’t have long ass rinds as they do in the family sized jar.

Don’t worry about paper plates in the future. One of my other favorite things is Target. Finding cute clearance items? BETTER!

Don’t be deceived by the price on the clearance sticker. These were actually $.74 to my surprise! I was thinking towards the future and bought 2 for when I eventually get my own place. I figured it’d be nice if my guest could have a matching plate.

I also picked up a travel packet of tissues for $.18, yeah, that’s what I’m talking about! I almost grabbed an avocado slicer for a little less than $3 but thanks to the Pinterest pin about clearance stickers, I knew it was going to go on clearance AGAIN!

Basically, if the clearance price ends in an 8, it will be marked down again, but if it ends in a 4, it’s the lowest it will ever be. Doesn’t really fit with the above plates as they were even lower than that, but let’s just call it a fluke. 😉

I cannot wait to use my new plate tomorrow night!

Last but not least, it’s almost time for Dancing with the Stars, one of my favorite shows. Louis Van Amstel is my favorite dancer and I just love how down to earth Sabrina Bryan is, so needless to say, I’m Team The Van Bryans! 🙂

Are you guys a fan of Dancing with the Stars? If so, who are you rooting for?

I also love Shawn Johnson and both Val & Maks. Brothers, yum! 🙂
