Easter + Leg Day + Recipe

Random catch up day, here we go! 

Easter yesterday was great, I always love getting both mine and B's family together at once since it doesn't happen as often as it should. We enjoyed the awesome 80 degree weather and had a nice healthy Easter lunch of chicken and turkey burgers, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus.

Of course there was no shortage of desserts and candy everywhere but I decided my goals right now were more important than the short term satisfaction of a Reese's egg and glass of wine (although it was a TOUGH decision!) I'm not sure if I've even mentioned it here on the blog but I'm going to be doing some updated fitness photos with James Patrick in just about two weeks, so I'm pretty laser focused right now so that I can look and feel my best when that rolls around. 

This morning I did a chest and HIIT workout, and my sore glutes were screaming the whole time I was sprinting, but I made it through! I wanted to share my glute workout from yesterday because it was such a good one and I was starting to get sore just 8 hours later. (This is not part of Get Lean with Little B, I was testing it out for a future project, hint hint!) 

Barbell squats with band 4 x 12 
Barbell or smith hip thrusts 5 x 10-12 last set drop set 
Banded reverse hack squat 3 x 15 super set banded reverse hypers 3 x 15 
Front loaded reverse lunges 3 x 10 super set split squats 3 x 10 
Glute kickbacks 4 x 12 
Cable glute kickbacks 4 x 12 

If you try it, I would love to hear your feedback! 

And last on my list of random things to talk about today was this wrap that I have made so many times in the past week I've lost count. It is soooo yummy and super easy too so I wanted to share the recipe with you guys here: 


1 California Lavash sheet 
4oz chicken (I used rotisserie) 
2 T Lilly's red bell pepper hummus 
Cherry tomatoes and sliced onion 

1. In a pan saut√© onion and tomato until onions are translucent and tomatoes begin to whither. 
2. Lay lavash on a baking sheet and spread the hummus on one end. On top of the hummus, place chicken, onion, and tomato. 
3. Roll up and place under the broiler on hi for just a couple minutes/until you see the top start to brown.
