Happy Friday, loves! How are ya? I’m kind of pooped. Last night was a long night at the newspaper but it’s all good. I was super hungry when I got back but literally had nothing in my mini pantry but walnuts, pecans, sunflower seed butter and oats. So, I dipped my finger in the sunflower butter jar
a few many times. Problem solved.
I am excited to share today’s strength workout with you! It targets the waistline, upper and lower hips, thighs, chest and booty. Your lower body will be in love with you when you’re done with it! Working our waistline is important for better balance and posture. I tackled this beauty after 30 minutes on the arc trainer:
*Note: One “Bridge Pulse w/ Hip Swing” rep consist of this following: thrust your hips up, maintain that position and swing your hips side to side. Repeat 20x. To learn how to complete pendulum swings and pretzel leg lifts (my MBB signature moves), click here. Also, I haven’t forgotten about the video; it will be coming to you next month, so hang tight!
Workouts like this make me feel so strong. I love when you can literally feel your muscles changing! There’s nothing like it. Hence, the cheesy cell phone shot.
Before class, I made sure to grab lunch at the dining commons. Today’s entree included lentil-chickpea burgers with apple compote! I snagged a plate and made myself a salad with arugula, shredded carrots, baby corn (!!!) and roasted broccoli rabe.
Divine! I was stoked to see baby corn at the salad bar. I could eat it by the pound … but I have a strong feeling my bowels would disagree with that idea. Hehe.
It’s official: Matty and I have declared every Friday of this semester “Wildflour Friday.” You see, this semester is the semester of no breaks. In other words, I really have to be studying every moment I’m awake. Welcome to senior year of college! This was becoming problematic for Matty and I – we missed each other terribly! So, we decided to remedy the situation. Every Friday afternoon, we go to Wildflour.
First, we order the goods. Today, it was a chocolate chip cookie for him and a cranberry-almond biscotti for her (to dip in a large, slowpour coffee).
Matty does a lot of this (I promise he actually reads).
And I do a lot of this.
Care to know about weight management? I can tell you a whole lot.
Anyways, Wildflour Fridays are officially a tradition, one we’ve quickly grown quite fond of. How could we not? Calm atmosphere? Check. Generous and kind employees? Check. Amazing vegan goodies? Check. Love of my life? Check.
Yes, my friends, life is good.
Question of the Day: Do you have a favorite local spot that you like to visit?
Wildflour takes the cake for me. It’s just perfect.
