Happy Power Monday! So it finally warmed up with weekend! In the upper 50s, but that comes with a price. Rain. Tons of rain. So really the weather was pretty depressing. It poured all day Saturday, was dark, dreary, completely not my ideal weather. At least I only had to go out for grocery shopping which was another pretty depressing experience. They were out of like everything I needed, like my new favorite hummus and….PSPs! So I had to settle and buy some white sweet potatoes. Never had one, but hopefully they will make up for the lose of the PSP (probably not though). And I was in dire need to place a Vitacost order so I was able to do that and hopefully those essential will get here quick!
Do you go through phases where you just crave certain foods everyday and become obsessed with certain ingredients? Over the summer I was obsessed with smoked paprika, cinnamon, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes. Now I am obsessed with unsweetened cocoa powder, cumin, fenugreek, carrots, and PSPs! I have been going through my cocoa powder like a beast! Breakfast just isn’t the same with out it, haha. O and I also am really like raw hazelnuts. I don;t think I had ever had a real raw whole hazelnut, but I got them at the grocery for a recipe and now I absolutely adore them. I love how each nut and seed has its own distinct and unique flavor and texture 🙂
Anyway, (awkward transition) I am definitely in need of a Power Monday this week and I have a good one I have been saving up for you guys!
So this is probably my favorite lower body workout of all-time. It was originally created by Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean (she says it is her all-time favorite too!). I found this workout probably last year and have modified it a lot since then. So I wanted to share my version of it with you guys. It is so fun and I always get through it relatively quick, but it always leaves me feeling like I have worked hard and strong!Read More
