Monday & My New New Favorite Dessert

Some weeks the Monday God just doesn’t want you to have a rockin’ fabulous day. While I got amazing sleep Sunday into Monday, I woke up with dead legs, which I will not complain about because that means my leg workout on Saturday was awesome. I did wake up feeling rather blah and woof. I had originally planned on a 30 minute shake-out run, which I would use as my weekly 30 minutes of steady-state cardio per my coach, along with a chest workout.

I knew right away that 30 minutes wasn’t going to happen, so I told myself to just jog until I knew my limit was reached. After 20 minutes of a jog at a pace even slower than my typical warm-up pace, I knew that I was only going to make my legs feel worse. I walked for another 20 minutes, and then decided to go back to my apartment. I looked at this day as an active rest day, figuring light activity was better than nothing, and what better day to take it easy than on a day full of cramps.

Had I done a full workout and showered at work, I would have been miserable in skinny jeans and a tight shirt, but the benefits of showering at my apartment meant I could look through my dresses so that I could be comfortable all day!

Breakfast was protein pancakes that I made on Sunday. Lemon cake flavored. THE best! So many pancakes!

I usually use lavish bread for tuna wraps, but I’ve been loving tuna salads lately, which was my lunch at 2p. I clearly do not believe in normal meal times ha.

1 cup of vanilla greek yogurt mixed with 17 grams of Oreo pudding mix. You can alter the amounts of both depending on your preference or leftover macros. I based mine off of the macros I had left for the night.

A Look At My Wild Weekend!


Weekends always go by way too quickly, this past one included. I mean this weekend really flew by, and I feel like I didn’t do too much! Friday started off with a lazy night. Grilled chicken, a salad since I’ve been craving them, along with watching YouTube videos. I’m obsessed with vlogs geared towards girls…
