I weighed myself this morning and you guys were so right! I lost 4lbs! It was great to have especially after a gain from last week. I did the happy dance with my trainer this morning.
I ate dinner at my mom's last night. I knew I was making cake pops when the kids went to bed so I ate a light dinner.
Amy's light and lean spinach lasagna and a salad with greens, strawberries, pecans, feta, and light poppyseed dressing. A friend of mine told me about that lasagna so I bought one awhile ago. I couldn't wait to try it. It was so good! I want to try to make spinach lasagna on my own.
I did make cake pops last night and the flavors were:
Coconut, peanut butter chocolate, chocolate, and birthday cake. I tried doing a salted caramel thing but it didn't end up good. Not what I was hoping for!
Have you ever had a cake pop?
One of the best desserts ever. It's simple. Bake a cake, crush it up, add one tub of icing, roll into balls, and dip into candy melts. There are a few tricks to make it easier like dipping the stick in the chocolate before putting it into the cake pop. Then let them sit in the freezer for a little bit. That way it doesn't fall off the stick when you dip it. For the peanut butter chocolate I used chocolate cake and chocolate icing + natural peanut butter. Then I dipped it in peanut butter candy melts. For the coconut it was white cake and white icing + coconut extract and coconut. I dipped those in white chocolate and sprinkled them with toasted coconut.
I only had a bite of each. Just to make sure they were ok. Seriously, so maybe 2 cake pops total? Not too bad!
This morning I had a gym appointment with my trainer. I did 200 ab reps+6 other exercises in 30 minutes. Plus 15 minutes on the treadmill and 15 on the bike. I'm pooped!
We took a picnic lunch to a friends house today.
For myself I packed an almond butter and raspberry jelly sandwich. Plus carrots and sabra roasted red pepper hummus.
Squirrel packed her own lunch. She wanted JUST peanut butter on her sandwich but when we got there she wanted JUST jelly. Little buddy had pb&j. Both kids had a squeeze applesauce, water, and shared a small pack of pringles from nana.
Check out the weather today!
When I left my friends house I really wanted a diet coke (I haven't had one in awhile) so I stopped by bojangles and got a large!
It feels so summer like and diet coke tastes so good in the summer! I drank it all!
It may be nice today but check out Saturday.
Come on weather! Make up your mind!
Has your weather been up and down where you live?
