Weekend Recap/Weekly Health Plan

June 3, 2013

Pretty mellow weekend my way. I have to say though, the Carolina heat is officially in full effect.

Friday night:
// Work day finally ended at 4:30 
// Awesome leg work out with my best friend Kelly and girlfriend Jeana
// Wine with the girls
Selfie before wine time!
// Dog park so 2 little Jack Russell's and a Rat terrier could expend some energy
// Gym for weights and cardio
// Grilled "lean turkey dogs" and a Red box night with my man
Getting my grill on!
Broken City: It was OK... I couldn't follow the story line as well as I should have so I think that kind of ruined it for me. Haunted House: It was actually pretty fun, in my opinion! But crude, gross humor... I don't mind that so I laughed a lot.
//Marquis surprised me by waking up early and getting breakfast for us
// I enjoyed being lazy watching "My Haunted House" on BIO
// Gym for spin class 
// Grocery shopped
// Cleaned and food prepped for 3 hours (I was exhausted)
// Enjoyed my Sunday night shows, baby! Real Housewives of New Jesey, Kardashians, and Long Island Medium

 Meal 1 [7:15 AM]: Power Smoothie
(A Liz original recipe: fresh kale and spinach (2 cups), 1 scoop of Protein Powder, 1 tablespoon of PB2, half of a banana, 1 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk, ice, and blended to perfection)
Meal 2 [10:30 AM]: 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, and a tablespoon of sugar and fat free Vanilla pudding mix (This makes oatmeal taste like freaking ice-cream.)
