California King Bed

Lunch: Leftover quinoa and salmon with some courgettes mixed in.
T came back from Ireland last night and brought me back some treats. I love goodies!! :-D I haven't tried the bread yet but it looks amazing.
I had a feeling he was going to bring me back something that said the Luck of the Irish! I haven't had such great luck these past few months. In fact, its been pretty shitty! lol.. but hopefully things will turn around.. I'm feeling more positive about it.
I requested T make us grilled cheese sandwiches upon his return. His are the best! He used American, blue cheese, and truffle oil.. yuuumm!!
Quick bowl of cereal before heading off to the gym
added sliced bananas and seeds on top
mmm fresh coffee in my new cup!!

Workout today was back and chest: 12 reps per exercise. I was going to do three sets but I haven't lifted in a while so I decided to stick with two today.
  • Wide grip pulldown
  • flat bench dumbbell press up
  • one arm row
  • machine chest press
  • Rest and repeat once more
  • Seated row
  • Incline dumbbell fly
  • bent over bent arm row
  • calf press
  • Rest and repeat once more
  • Stretch and go home
Protein smoothie to aid in muscle recovery:
  • skim milk
  • greek yogurt
  • pineapple
  • mango
  • frozen fruit
  • agave nectar
  • ice 
  • scoop of protein powder
I sauteed some roasted broccoli in my leftover zucchini and quinoa mix. I also added in some sauteed shrimp. The shrimp was overly coated in salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder. I might have forgotten there wasn't a lid on top of the chili powder. Oops!! It was still tasty though :)

Song of the day: Rihanna "California King Bed" my first small Zumba class today!!
