If At First You Don’t Succeed…

Morning Afternoon!

It’s been quite a busy Saturday over here. Last night I didn’t get home from Bunco until 11:30 (well, bunco ended at 10:00, but wine and chit chat lasted a little longer Winking smile) and then didn’t get in bed until midnight.

When I woke up at 7:30 this morning, I knew my planned 7:45 a.m. spin class wasn’t going to happen. So instead I headed to the gym and hopped on the treadmill and did this 1-2-3 interval run.

Pin It

Usually whenever I do HIIT or regular interval runs (such as above) on the treadmill, they don’t last longer than 30 or 35 minutes. I find with this high of intensity, it’s all I want or need.

From there, I headed right to my clients house – I stretched after my workout with her pre-workout stretches – and then headed back home.

Breakfast was eaten on the run:


Doesn’t look good, but it sure was! Fage, 2 chopped medijool dates, and pecans. The sweetness from the dates made this SO yummy…it didn’t even need honey or any other sweetener!

The rest of the morning has involved double teaming the main floor (cleaning) with Shane and baking up a storm in the kitchen.


I’m working on a batch of paleo protein bars and I think I’ve almost got it! I made one small mistake with the first batch, so I won’t post the recipe yet.

However, up next on the agenda is try-try-trying again, and if my hunch is right, I have a feeling this next batch is going to be delicious. If it is, I’ll be sure to post Open-mouthed smile

Now it’s (finally) shower time and hopefully nap time. Happy Saturday, friends!

What’s the last thing you baked?

  7. I made baked eggs for a brunch this morning if that counts! I took a muffin tin and placed a strip of cbacon around the outside edge and cracked an egg into the center. Baked at 350 for about 10-12 minutes. Easy peasy, yet aesthetically pleasing! :-)
