Today’s circuit targeted my core and incorporated a lot of plyometric exercises that got my heart rate up fast.
Oh heeey burning abs!
I did each mini circuit three times through. That did the trick!
It was rather rainy outside when I went to make myself breakfast this morning, so I figured a pretty smoothie would be a good way to counteract the dreary day.
Into the blender went:
- 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 spoonful cashew butter
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- Enough almond milk to get everything moving
The strawberries dominated the flavor (and color) of this smoothie and that was fine by me. Love ‘em!
In addition to lots of fun concerts and carnival rides, the festival also has some ridiculous food. We’re talking fried Twinkies, fried Oreos, fried Reese’s, doughnut burgers and more. If you want to clog your arteries, it’s pretty much the place to be.

Question of the Morning
- Is there a festival or big outdoor event in your area that you look forward to attending every year?
Though it isn’t a festival, when we lived in Orlando, Ryan and I looked forward to attending the Baldwin Park Doggie Derby every year. If you’re a dog lover and live near Orlando, you have to go. It is so much fun! Sadie won one year and made us a little too proud. And that’s the last trophy that the Fagan family has earned. Ryan and I clearly need to step up our game.
