Anyway, after that I'm meeting up with my BFF for lunch, sneaking in a workout with my fave in our basement gym and going to one of my favorite restaurants for a birthday dinner for two of my other best friends! It should be a busy Saturday.
That being said, one of my 2014 goals is to get in the best shape of my life for our wedding. My fiance and I have been working out together, which has been awesome. I started out needing help just to hold the bench press bar - ours is probably about 40 lbs - and now I can do at least 5 on my own. Paul helps me finish the set by making sure the bar doesn't deck into my face when I do negatives. I've been working on pull ups too, using the same negative method.
Now, I can do a decent amount of negatives on my own and the rest I do using the simple human trash can that used to be in our kitchen...
I've seen recipes for cookie dough bites floating around the internet for awhile and over the past few years have made a few of them. I played around with ingredients that I had laying around in the kitchen and came up with these bites... they taste amazing. They also pack about 5 grams of protein each - choose 2 as a quick snack while you're on the go or as a recovery snack for your workout.
