Good morning! Happy Monday!
On Saturday morning, Danny and I ran the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago 5k. Check back for a post on the race tomorrow!
On Saturday afternoon, we went to my niece’s 4th birthday party.
She had a princess super hero party and my grandma made the cutest cupcakes for the party.
Super hero and princess cupcakes. They were delicious!
She even Baymax cupcakes because my niece loves Big Hero 6.
On Sunday morning, I went grocery shopping but first I stopped at Starbucks to try out their cold brewed coffee.
I got it with non-fat milk and one splenda. I’m not usually a huge fan of Starbucks regular brewed coffee but I loved the cold brewed coffee. I stopped and got another after the gym this morning but I got it with only Splenda and I prefered it with just the Splenda and no milk.
On Sunday afternoon, we went to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law’s new house to visit with our nephew who is home from the Navy for two weeks.
We cooked out and the kids had fun swimming.
They just adopted a new dog and Danny had fun hanging out with him.
Jaden and I made cupcakes to bring with.
Betty Crocker recently brought back the rainbow chip frosting which is my all time favorite frosting so I had to buy a tub of it! It is so good.
Good thing we made cupcakes or I would have eaten it all myself!
With all the parties and food this weekend, I ate a lot. Way too much. Today, I’m back on track and trying to eat good all week because we have another party to go to this weekend.
I went to the gym and did a few shoulder exercises. Then I did intervals on the Stairmaster.
For 30 minutes, I alternated between one minute at level 5 and one minute at level 16. I did a couple of ab exercises and then foam rolled for a few minutes. I ended up burning 560 calories.
Today, I have a few errands to do and a few workouts to plan! Have a great Monday!
