- I did a fun At Home Cardio Blast workout
- I visited the University of Florida for a girly weekend with my mom and sister and ate copious amounts of cake at The Dessert Lady
- I met the designer of my wedding dress
After my sister left last night, my mom, Ryan and I hung out for a bit before Ryan headed up to bed and my mom and I watched several episodes of wedding-related TV (Platinum Weddings and some show called Girl Chooses Gown maybe?) while munching on peanut butter filled pretzels. How good are those!?
Needless to say, after visits to The Dessert Lady, an indulgent brunch, cookies last night, apple fritters, and a huge bag of kettle corn from the Farmer’s Market this weekend, we were both ready for some nutritious fare this morning.
Why are the weekends always packed with the “good stuff?” 🙂
After raving about Green Monsters to my mom, she was excited to try one for herself.
I made both of us breakfast smoothies with lots of spinach!
Our smoothies contained:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
- Several handfuls of fresh spinach
- 1 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
- Cold water
- 2 ice cubes
As always, you couldn’t even taste the spinach flavor, though the putrid green color is proof of its presence.
My mom took a sip an instantly became a fan!

Though I got to bed a little later than usual I slept like a rock and woke up ready for a good workout!
Initially I figured I’d do my own weights routine, but when I got to the gym and saw everyone filing into BodyPump, I headed in to take the class as well.
I felt like my mind was racing throughout the class this morning. I was thinking about just about everything other than BodyPump, so the class really flew by!
I finished up my workout with 25 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical with the latest issue of Brides magazine. I think I’m in full-on wedding planning mode after this weekend!
Question of the Day
Do you eat differently on the weekends than on weekdays?
