Flowers really brighten up my kitchen when I do decide to buy them! However, I only ever remember when i go to Trader Joes. They last forever! ;)

This mornings breakfast was similar to yesterdays except instead of strawberries I had a banana with PB to go along with my cinnamon raisin bread.

delish!!

Even-though i got close to 9 hours of sleep last night, I was exhausted allll dayyy longgggg! Maybe it had something to do with yesterday run? I was extremely lazy for a majority of the day.

I laid around on the couch before talking myself into a workout

Today I started the 2nd phase of the 6 week bikini workout I started on a whim right before vacation. I was ready for some new workouts. I have been alternating 2 30ish minute workouts the last 3 weeks.

Not only did I change up the workout but I changed the weights!

I went out and bought 15lb dumbells and gave them a try today! EVERYTHING was so much tougher but I could still life the weight without destroying my form! YAY HEAVY WEIGHTS.. maybe ill be up to 20 lbs next year! Big step from the 3lb dumbbells I used to use!!

Phase 2 workout A took me about 42 minutes this time around and I was OUT OF BREATH AND SWEATY! Im anticipating some hardcore sore body feelings going on tomorrow! Im FULLY ok with that!

I refueled with lunch.

Toasted potato bread

fresh ricotta

raspberry jam

strawberries

grapes on the side

I didnt know if this sandwich would work or not but it was AWESOME!! The jam made the ricotta sweet and everything went together beautifully! Very refreshing!

Post sweat there was a whole lot of nothing taking place. I watched a lot of “Say yes to the dress” and “bridezillas” I did some shower/bachelorette THINKING before the yummy wanted dinner.

Vegetable Macaroni and Goat cheese= AWESOME

I cooked up some whole wheat pasta. While it was boiling I sauteed some of the chopped veggies in coconut spread. When the noodles were done and the veggies were soft I combined them with some basil hummus! then a few chunks of goat cheese and put it in the oven at 350* for 15 minutes!!

DELICIOUS!
