so gorgeous

by purelytwins

Yesterday was gorgeous day here in NC! And we took advantage spending the day outside hanging out with friends.

But before we got all dolled-up we worked on workouts for our #purelyfittlife clients

saturday workot

We did a 15 minute full body routine plus 2 rounds of our strong sexy arm routine.  Lori is loving her new moving comfort sports bra (that Michelle bought!) and of course love our Gymboss Interval Timer

eats-logoA few highlights from our day yesterday:

waffles

Made protein coconut flour waffles for breakfast. We enjoyed these waffles as our pre-workout meal.

waffles-cashewcream

Breakfast was heavenly…a plate of protein waffles topped with creamy cashew lucuma frosting sprinkled with cacao nibs and hemp seeds. Best combo!

lunch

Post workout meal was a big salad (mixed lettuce, arugula, alfalfa sprouts) with a mix shredded brussel sprouts, sardines, and salmon!

Then it was time to get the house ready for some friends to come over and grill out.

saturday highlights

We had a variety of eats for everyone to enjoy from the basic chips and salsa, carrots and cucumber with guacamole or hummus and pickles. We grilled up some grass-fed burgers. We enjoyed one plate with wine and little bit later in the evening came back to eat more burgers and snacked on pulp crackers.

It was great to sit and relax with friends. It was a perfect day yesterday for grilling too!

mint fudge brownies

Dessert was some chocolate chip mint protein fudge brownies!

Anyone else grill out yesterday? What is your favorite thing to grill?

Did anyone else enjoy a gorgeous day yesterday?

We hope everyone enjoys their St. Patty’s Day!

til next time,

xoxo

Omg, a day without juice or marshmallows or gelatin sludge or coconut oil?! How did u two survive? Haha 🙂 u gals rock. Was there avocado on ur salmon sardine salad? I need to try that combo…. I usually just stick to one fish. What type of canned salmon do u gals use? And, this might sound dumb, but how do u save the leftover canned fish?

I usually lightly pan sear the sardines and tuna…. Do u gals do this or just eat as is?

Sandra no avocado at our lunch. We did drizzle some olive oil on it. We store the leftover fish in a glass dish, and try to eat it within the next day or two. Check out this post of brands we like http://purelytwins.com/2013/02/12/food-ideas-for-healing-gut-guidelines/ And yes sometimes we heat up our fish on the skillet.

Love to see a 15min full body routine soon:) When you say “two rounds” does that mean the video twice through or just two rounds of each set of exercises? Your arm routine is pretty fun. Like the TIU workouts its easy to fit in before work. Thanks gals.
