The Weekend I Said YES to the Dress!

Wooohoooo! After just one day of shopping and 6 or 7 dresses, I found my dress! I had the best time ever with my friends and family and it will be a weekend I never ever forget. 


I was so lucky to have 2 of my bridesmaids in from out of town, and thanks to FaceTime, I got to have all the most important people there with me. 


Thank goodness my mom was there with me, because she was the one that suggested I try on a different type of dress than I had been trying on all day. I had overheard another lady talking about a dress that just happened to be the style my mom wanted me to try, so I decided to listen to my mom and just go for it. All day I had just been feeling eh about all the dresses-- they were beautiful and pretty much just what I had in mind, but nothing was blowing me away. Then I tried on THE dress and it is so true that you just know! It was one of the best feelings. 


After a super fun but tiring weekend, the last thing in the world I wanted to do last night was cook. I sat on the couch and tried to figure out how I was going to make the week work without doing any bulk cooking and realized, it just wasn't going to happen. Especially now that I'm on a lean out mission for mid March, I need to make sure I always have clean foods ready to go. 


So, I sucked it up and made carob chip banana muffins, apple cinnamon protein muffins, turkey muffins, and rosemary garlic sweet potato fries. This will take care of breakfast and lunch all week, which is a huge relief and I'm so glad it's done now! I'll pick back up tomorrow with the rest of the workouts I owe you!

  3. Can you provide the recipes for all of those listed? Sweet Potato Fries (never made from scratch before or do you buy them frozen), turkey muffins (do you use the recipe on BodyBuilding.com?) and the Banana / Carob & Apple Cinnamon muffins?

    Thanks!

    1. I linked out everything for you above. For the fries, I make them fresh. Just slice and toss in a little olive oil and sprinkle with onion powder, garlic powder, and rosemary. Then bake at 415 for 20 minutes, flip, and bake for 20 more. They won't be crispy like fries, but they're yummy!

    How many servings do you get for the turkey muffins and Carob muffins? I kind of made a lot and wasn't sure if I should have less. Thanks
