Last Week's Workout & Last Night's Supper



**Check out my new social icons I added, YAY!!  So proud! I hope you like them and please use them to access any of my other Insta-photos, Pinterest picks or Facebook posts.

Sorry, this is gotta be a quick one because I've got doubles this week.  I'm trying to do 45 minutes of cardio int he morning and at least 3 minted of weight training in the afternoon.  Whoo, just for this week, at least, to see if it jump starts anything for me.

I wanted to update you all on the "Fresh Start" workout I did last week.  It was awesome!!  Way better than the "10 Week Workout" the week before.  It was full body, and with alternating cardio I got a great workout.  I had a gentleman approach me at the gym and ask me if I was okay.  So, it must be challenging.  I mean, I am a buffer puffer, but I think it was the manner in which I was standing in front of the fan with my mouth wide open. LOL  Listen: after 90 total walking lunges and 90 total step kicks in one workout, you had been puffing, or you're taking too long of breaks.

Had a great weekend and stayed on task my cheat was french fries and a mini ice cream sandwich, no biggie.  To round out our weekend last night we had an incredible supper.  I wanted to make it special since it's really the only time my boyfriend and I get to spend together.  Unfortunately he's picked up a double shift on Saturday, so we're missiles in the night.

I made his fave, Penne Beef, but also made a stuffed mushroom appetizer.  Because I had so much stuffing leftover, I am making them again tonight and will post the recipe tomorrow.  They're incredible; with homemade walnut sage pesto & lump crab meat.

As for the Penne I wanted to get the recipe up for you all ASAP....

This really is the easiest thing, and great hot or cold!  You can also use this balsamic for anything.  It is the absolute BEST!!

Today's Meals:

Breakfast
Matcha Vanilla Smoothie  still my fave!  It's getting to the point where I can't have a morning without it.
Scrambled Egg whites with spinach and hot sauce

Snack
gluten free pretzels

Lunch
Kale salad mix
diced roasted chicken breast
pomegranate seeds
fat free feta
& the balsamic vinaigrette (from the recipe above)





















Snack
handful of almonds

I spent so  much time today updating and connecting all my social media that I didn't leave much time for posting...

Ooooo, also went on a hike to the Colorado National Monument.  It was beautiful.  If you go in the front gate on Rimrock (in GJT) the first trail is less than 1/4 mile down the road.  One of the highest hikes I've ever done.


























It's about an hour in full length, and a butt kicker.  LUVED IT!!

Gotta run, groceries and gym.  See you guys soon!
