Weekend in a nutshell

Friday was sooooo difficult to get through energy wise. I was exhausted!

1- outfit

Casual Friday outfit 🙂

I worked 2 jobs and was ready for BED afterwards! I decided to stay in and finish “True Detective” show with the boy and I cried my eyes out! AH! It was so good!! I definitely recommend it.

Saturday started with the gym! 🙂 WOOOOO but it took A LOT to push myself through the pain.

This gym has a smoothie bar which has this DELISH smoothie made of : bananas(of course), pineapple, spinach, protein powder, LEMON, and something else that I need to ask them about because holy crap I am addicted.

We were supposed to do Taste of DC but it was raining and didn’t feel like rushing so we decided on a winery day instead.  Well I failed on that. There are zero wineries near Arlington, VA.  So a Wine Bar sufficed. Grand Cru Wine Bar was AMAZING! Great wine, amazing cheese, incredible service and a bartender that knew his stuff 🙂 Very satisfied.

 1-cheese 1-A wine

Then we went to Bonefish Grill for dinn dinn. WHOA!!!!! Bang bang shrimp is to die for. I couldn’t decide between the Rainbow Trout and Tilapia stuffed with shrimp, crab, scallops….. I got the Tilapia. Great decision. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMM. (Can I say yum some more?) I need it again. Best date night ever.

Sunday Footba…… no– a hike first please.

1-tree 1-walkway

Then we went to Trader Joe’s (my all time fave store) to pick up some dinner items. Ground turkey, broc + cauliflower, sweet potatoes.

While I cooked, the bf watched football 🙂 Perfectly ok with that.

That’ssssssss a wrap! 🙂

Much love xoxo,

Mondays are for…

Whatever I feel like! Usually I like to workout legs on Mondays but today… I was feeling a run + shoulders.

My shoulder workout included 15 reps, 3 sets of:

  • Shoulder Press
  • Side lateral raise
  • Alternate front raise
  • Reverse dumbbell flyes
  • Lat pull down
  • Dumbbell hang pull
  • Arnold dumbbell press

Phew! I’m worn out!

I got home at a decent time so I decided to cook my lunches for the week from what I bought yesterday (since I was too lazy last night).  I didn’t cook everything… because I tend to get tired of the same lunches.  Turkey burgers and yellow squash it is!

I read somewhere to add cottage cheese to the turkey burger in order to make the burgers moist since turkey tends to dry up because there isn’t much fat.  I added it to 3 of the burgers.

And then the usual- yellow squash with garlic powder. 🙂

Time to relax & watch my lovely Redskins get killed by the Seahawks 😥

Happy Monday!

Oh bananas.. you make me so happy.

There are so many things you can do with bananas!

  • Bananas & Peanut Butter (any nut butter! Cashew, Almond, Sun Butter, Walnut)
  • Smoothies
  • Banana “Icecream”
  • Replaces fat in desserts
    • Banana bread
    • Cookies
    • Cheesecake
    • Cake

So this Friday started off with a crunchy banana peanut butter gluten free wrap! 🙂 YUM!
