Our New Family Member & My Monday Morning

Good Monday morning! Hope everyone had a great weekend! We spent most of ours relaxing at home with the new puppy, Cali. 

We rescued her from the animal shelter on Tuesday and found out the next day when we took her to the vet that she had kennel cough and parasites in her stomach. After a few days on meds she's doing much better and getting adjusted to her new home. She's already almost completely potty trained (only 1 accident in the past 3 days) and sleeps through the night- thank goodness!  

After sleeping in this morning and a nice big breakfast B and I headed to the gym for back and bi's. I'm so happy to see my strength increasing-- I have been doing 90lb lat pulls for 6-8 reps for the past couple weeks. Hoping to get up to my full body weight one day, only 15lbs to go! I'm also still chugging along with my goal to do 10 wide grip pull-ups and I'm up to 6 complete reps now. I've basically added one every week since I started so at this rate I should be at 10 reps in 4 or 5 weeks- we'll see! 

Post workout I made my usual protein pancakes (1/2 cup oats, 1 egg white, 1 scoop MRM vanilla protein, cinnamon, stevia and a splash of water) and I threw in 1/2 a banana because we have a few that are nice and ripe. Now I'm working on some client meal plans and then I'll be off to train an afternoon/evening full of clients! This week I'm hoping to post a shoulder/tricep workout for you guys and hopefully get around to making a new recipe too-- any suggestions are welcomed!

  1. Aww, shelter puppies are the best - but yes, they get sick a lot! I adopted an 8 week old 2 months ago. He had 3 different parasites, kennel cough, tapeworm and a skin infection all within the time period since getting him. Hopefully he will be off all meds in a few days!!
