Weekend highlights, workouts, and good news!

Hey, hey. I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was pretty good. Just a few quick highlights to share…

Lots of craziness with these goofballs!

A Fit Mess

Saturday morning I worked out and the girls and I hit up Bean Traders for some yummies. We shared a cinnamon apple muffin (gluten and dairy free) and a vegan banana chocolate breakfast bar. They were deeeelicious!

Ashlyn’s face is so funny – she doesn’t quite know where to start.

Ohh – and I’ve started to experiment with adding iced coffee to my post workout protein shake and it’s SUPER tasty. I’ll share my recipe soon since I’m still tweaking it.

Later on Target, shopping, and the runaround. We also played outside, but only for a little while because holy moly it was hot!


The evening ended with some nice wine (for me).

AND I have some pretty awesome news — I passed my personal training exam and I am now a certified Poliquin personal trainer!! (<–deserves two exclamation points.) I decided to just go for it and take the exam already. I was studying on and off for the last four months and felt prepared for the test. I’m super excited and I’ll share more on that soon. Lots of good things to come!


Sunday included some pool time, some gym time, and a little nap time. <3

I’ve still been focusing on increasing my strength and even though I took two rest days this week, I felt pretty great throughout my workouts. Saturday morning’s workout suffered a bit because of my wine the night before (ahem), but it was a good reminder of why I shouldn’t drink when I have an early class – ha!
