Weekend Recap!

  Weekends always seem to go by entirely too fast! This weekend felt just the same. First thing Saturday morning I had a 5k to run that was rescheduled due to bad weather. This is the first 5k I had ran since October. My time improved tremendously and I set a new PR...33:10..oddly enough I knew that I could have pushed myself harder...Nonetheless I placed 1st in my age holla! Its nice to see hard work paying off..even if its when you least expect it.

After the race we went out of town to take Little B to see Paw Patrol Live, it was such a cute show and it is always nice to travel to the land of Starbucks and good shopping. We had pretty good seats and it was an awesome facility.  The story line was adorable and B loved it.
 In the past I would have gorged on every meal I thought I needed, then after starting a healthy lifestyle I probably would have panicked at fear of gaining weight...well fast forward a year and I am happily living my life and making healthy choices that I know will help me accomplish my goals. First up is my favorite macro friendly Starbucks drink: Iced Americano with soy and a sugar free syrup (cinnamon dulce).  My other go to favorite meal when we are away is a fuji apple chicken salad from Panera. I always ask for the dressing on the side, tons of great flavor. I pair it with that acai berry green tea (unsweet). Now don't get me wrong...I ate an amazing Red Robin hamburger for dinner Saturday night...but it was accounted for with my training throughout the week.

 After getting home late from being out of town I knew I had to do a little bit of meal prep to make it through the next couple of days.. especially breakfast. Which enters Lil Buff Bakery protein cake mixes! They are amazing, easy, and help me reach my daily macros like a champ. I made these into blueberry muffins and will be eating a serving for breakfast each day! Warm them up for a few seconds and money!
