WIAW-Cake cake cakePosted: July 25, 2012
yesterday morning I woke up before work to squeeze in a work out before work (wow I said “work” a bagillion times in that sentence)
i looked to Carrots and Cake for some workout inspiration
I only changed it up a little bit by making the 4 minute intervals tabata intervals instead of doing the moves straight through..so for example I did 20 seconds of jumping jacks, 10 seconds rest, 20 seconds burpees, 10 seconds rest, and repeated that 4 times for a total of 4 minutes
before work I made myself a protein shake but of course i forgot it was tuesday (whoopsies)
but I made a delicious Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
gulppped on my way to work..i can never drink smoothies slowly no matter how hard I try
my manager offered me a free lunch if I put up the umbrellas outside..score!
so around 3pm after my shift I had a delicious lunch
sorry for the terrible picture but I just got a house salad and added sliced avocado, goat cheese, and salmon with a citrus vinagrette
half a banana and a peach with some almond butter and a few cherries
i wasn’t too hungry for dinner because I ate my snack around 5 but my mom made a delicious meals so I just had smaller portions
and a homemade chicken ragu sauce with papardelle pasta..SO good! my mom is an amazing cook 🙂
today is my best friend Molly’s 21st birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOLLY!
so last night I made her a cake!
a homemade peanut butter cake with chocolate buttercream
between 6 people we essentially finished the entire cake..
i used the peanut butter cake recipe from Joy the Baker cookbook and used a simple chocolate buttercream frosting recipe
but i’m telling you, you HAVE to go buy this cookbook and make her peanut butter birthday cake asap
one of the best cakes i’ve ever made hands down!
time to go find something for breakfast and then go to my work out!
