A weekend full of pre-birthday fun
This weekend was jam packed with food, family and of course...sweat.
Woke up ready to crush my jump & drill workout in my new Lululemon inspired crops I picked up at TJ Maxx last week.
My workout Saturday morning was incredible. I felt strong the entire time and really pushed myself throughout. By the time I left I had burned 603 calories.
After the gym I had to quickly shower and get ready for a baby shower that my mom and I were attending.
It was nice to catch up with family I haven't seen in awhile and see the mom-to-be open all of her gifts!
Saturday night Eddie took me out for an early birthday dinner to Seasons 52.
Can I just say I LOVE that restaurant!? Every dish is made of fresh, seasonal ingredients and all of them are under 475 calories.
For my entree I went with the vegetarian tasting platter which was a lot more food then I expected. On the dish: Cedar plank tofu with mango chutney, citrus quinoa, soft taco, butternut squash and a roasted pear.
Every bite was amazing, I recommend this dish to anyone!
Hit the gym for arms & abs + kickboxing, ya know, the usual.
I wore my new Nike running tank to the gym that Eddie bought me Saturday night as an early birthday present [yes, he IS the best] and I actually received a lot of compliments.
After the gym it was time for birthday brunch at the Garden City Hotel.
I can't even tell you the amount of food we consumed, but all of it was delicious.
and they ended the meal with a BANG
All in all a perfect, pre-birthday weekend full of too much food and lots of fun.
Mondays always come too soon.
