I am obsessed with Kinder chocolate, so I was so happy to get some of them! The eggs have toys inside! Lol! Why don't they sell them in the US??? I loaded up on them when I went to Europe, I think they single handedly contributed to my gaining like 10 lbs during a 3 week vacation there. Everything else I got is great too, the Cadbury chocolates are always good. I used to eat a lot of those when I lived in Australia (see all the clues to why I am a fat kid at heart? lol). The Maynards are like gummy candies. Aero chocolate has air bubbles in them, and taste pretty good. Coffee Crisp is very good as well. And the Lays ketchup chips are interesting. I actually don't like ketchup, but I had heard about these chips and was very intrigued. It's better than I thought! I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with this poutine mix. I've heard of poutine but never tried it - there is actually a restaurant in LA that apparently makes good poutine. But I'm not sure about making it myself for the first time, not knowing what it's supposed to taste like lol.
Anyways, my candies are dwindling way faster than they should be. I realize that I should not have participated in this if I wanted to keep my diet clean, but I just couldn't resist... hahaha. I try to keep it to less than 100 calories worth a day, but these candies are sneaky, sometimes they just find their way into my belly. :)
I worked out pretty hard this week though! I had to work extra hard since I binged at the Bucchanal buffet last Sunday. Still think it was worth it though....
What I did: Lower body circuit weights, followed by 30 minutes of cardio intervals on the treadmill at 15%.
What I wore: My newest Lorna Jane Replay Excel tank, with Lorna Jane Clover bra under it. Lululemon Team Spirit crop in coal, and Nike Free Bionics - I wore these shoes for every workout this week! Love them!
What I did: Upper body weights for bicep and back, followed by 30 minutes of cardio.
I love the back of this tank! This tank is top contender for my best purchase this year.
This work outfit is not all that exciting, but it's my go-to when I can't decide what to wear, so I thought I'd share. I have like 6 Express portofino shirts in different color. All my work pants are Express wide waistband Editor pants, I think I have like 10 pairs. So if I can't decide what to wear, I just throw on some combo of them and voila! Easy as can be. This particular combo is the portofino shirt (back when it was called convertible long sleeve shirt) in cayman blue (but it's really a light teal color) with wide waistband Editor pants in oatmeal. I actually bought them at the same time! It's like spring colors in the fall! :)
What I did: My tricep and shoulder weights followed by cardio. I love/hate this weight day, because I start off doing 3 sets of body weight chin-ups, followed by 4 sets of negative pull-ups. Then a bunch of other stuff. Ughhhhh... my poor lats.
What I wore: Lululemon Dance Strap tank in army green, with Lululemon Snap It Up crop in black pique.
Thursday 10/3 - Rest day, woohoo! Same day my candies came!
What I did: Lower body weights. I kind of hate/love this one too. Leg days are really tough. I didn't have it in me to do my last cardio session of the week.
What I wore: Lululemon swiftly racerback in heathered plum, with Lorna Jane Duo bra under. And Lululemon Bandha crop in soot light.
What I did: My last weights session of the week! Upper body supersets. Then I did my last cardio session of the week as well.
What I wore: Lululemon Energy SL in potion purple with Splits59 Ginger 3/4 tight. I totally forgot I had this tank. That means I should probably sell it too. I'm trying to downsize. :)
What I did: I went to pilates class today.
What I wore: Lululemon Cool Racerback in ocean stripe mellow lemon, with Lululemon Power Vinyasa crop, and my Zigi Kickin wedge sneakers! Whenever I wear these crops, I get tooooons of compliments on them and everybody asking me where I got them from. I went into Lulu store wearing them after my pilates class, and the employees there asked me about them too. I guess they are not familiar with their own stuff from last year. But I totally think Lululemon should bring back the jacquard mesh design! I didn't take a photo from the back, so you'll have to click on the link above to see the mesh details if you are unfamiliar with these crops. They are super cool!
Alright, that's it for the week! I am preparing for another long week ahead, since I am going to be in San Francisco next weekend which means I have to get all my 5 weight sessions in without a rest day! At least it will be a long weekend because I have Columbus Day off next Monday. But still, I am mentally preparing to push hard all week! Excited about going to San Francisco though! I grew up there, but haven't been back in years since my parents moved away also. Will be nice to see some old friends and visit old and new places! I gotta research restaurants and hopefully I'm not too late to book reservations!
