Two Days Off

Good Morning!

The last two days were my “weekend”. I was very productive but ended up not doing any work for the blog 😛

Thursday I woke up early and made a delicious breakfast ~ Sweet Potato Stack. Simply roasted sweet potatoes topped with garlic Sautéed Spinach, Bacon and two fried eggs. Delicious and filling!

My workout was Chest. Shoulders and Triceps. It included:

4×12 Incline Chest Press
4×12 Shoulder Press
4×12 Tricep Cable Pushdown
4×12 Dumbbell Flys
4×12 Upright Rows
4×12 Tricep Dips
4×12 Machine Crunches (I always include abs when I weight train)

After workout out I made my way to Barnes and Noble in Rittenhouse Square. I decided I didn’t want to stay at home doing work. It was an incredibly productive time. I set up a nice little station along the back wall.

I worked on my acting website, move details (more on that at a later time) and wedding planning for my sister. Halfway through I got SO thirsty so I bought myself a Fiji to tide me over 😛


By 6:00 my stomach started to grumble so I made the trip back to my apartment. Dinner was an absolutely delicious find from the Whole 30 cookbook ~ Coconut Crusted Cod with Sautéed Veggies and a Baked Potato. Yum yum all the yum!


Yesterday (Friday) was a busy day of meal prepping and planning which I’ll talk about in tomorrows post! I did have an amazing Back Biceps & Abs workout:
