Happy Monday friends. And Happy Memorial Day!!
Taking today to remember ALL that have served our beautiful country! Remember all those that have died and served (and still are serving) our country. And saying a special thanks to those people who have done so much to preserve this nation!
Please stop sometime today and say a prayer for our servicemen!
Does that mean Summer is here? Everyone grilling, wearing sandals, and enjoying going to the beaches? Wish we were at the beach right now. Luckily today is a beautiful sunny day so we are planning to be outside when we can to enjoy it!
This weekend, even though a 3 day weekend, went by too fast. We were quite busy over the weekend.
Sunday’s workout was #PurelyFitLife workout #4 our full body plank time challenge workout followed by doing some pull-ups and lower ab raises on the equalizer. Getting back into taking progress pictures so I can look back and see my progression. Remember small progress is progress 🙂 I also practiced my headstands for #whatsbeautiful campaign. I am feeling a little more confident in doing them!
Lori Saturday highlights:
Breakfast was plantain pancakes with coffee. Pancakes topped with ghee. Perfection. Also made Gary waffles and threw in some Muesli into the mix. Lunch was avocado, coconut oil, zucchini and salmon.
Also had another perfect fit banana smoothie after our mid-afternoon walk. Dinner was a bowl of canned salmon with avocado, veggies and plantains, topped with coconut oil.
Breakfast was bacon, sautéed kale and a duck egg along with plantains. Later lunch was a bowl of avocado, coconut oil, cod and white rice.
After my afternoon workout I made another smoothie: perfect fit protein, banana, ice cubes, l-glutamine and some spirulina. Dinner was enjoyed in the car on the way out to the White Water Center. A mix of veggies, salmon and avocado. Upon arriving home that evening I made myself a single cookie. This time I mixed some carob and perfect fit protein with an egg and coconut oil. A soft cookie. Delicious. A great way to end the weekend.
YUMMMY pancakes! I love my pancakes!
Enjoyed flour-less plantain pancakes with ghee and coffee to start my day.
Seriously love these pancakes. So easy to make and taste amazing!
Lunch was fish, squash, avocado, dulse flakes and coconut oil. After my workout I enjoyed perfect banana smoothie. Dinner was rice, squash, avocado and canned salmon with coconut oil.
Enjoyed breakfast with Lori 🙂 Coffee, bacon, duck egg, kale -so good! Enjoyed a great workout followed by another Perfecr Fit banana smoothie. Yes, Lori and I are trying to focus on eating more real food, but sometimes we don’t feel like chewing and a cool refreshing smoothies hits the spot on these hot days! We are lucky that our bodies do not mind brown rice protein every once in awhile. Next, I enjoyed squash with avocado, salmon, coconut oil and sea salt. Dinner was more salmon with rice, avocado, coconut oil and TAHINI!! Dessert was a carob single serving cookie.
Saturday happenings were dog training first thing in the morning. Did a 3 mile walk.
Later we enjoyed the night out with friends.
Margaritas! But sadly these were not that good. Too sweet.
Not as good as our kombucha cocktails 🙂 Yep we brought along in our purses a kombucha with a little tequila.
We had a good time with friends in downtown for the Food Lion Speed Street Festival. We both got tired and went home by midnight. haha guess we are getting old
Played with Jax in the morning. Later met up with Gary and the rest of our friends to hang out to play cornhole.
Later that evening Jax, Gary and I went out to the White Water Center to listen to some music.
It was a gorgeous night. It was so nice to be able to sit outside to enjoy it. We ended up leaving before the fireworks happened as we were not sure how Jax would have done.
We will be back later with a FUN workout for you guys! A little behind the scenes action. We do all the videos and editing ourselves. We are not the best at it yet, but hopefully over time we will get better at it! 🙂
We hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday and Memorial Day!!
Anyone else do anything fun this weekend? What was your weekend highlight?
