Yesterday and this morning have been filled with exercise and I loved every minute of it.
I started my Thursday morning out with a quick, but tough chest, shoulder and tricep workout. Moves that made my workout: slow-mo push ups, alternating shoulder press, chair dips, chest fly, frontal and lateral raises and skull crushers. I also threw in some jumping jacks and burpees to keep my heart pumpin and it definately worked.
A little bit after that I rode my bike into work. It was 40 degrees out and felt amazing. I had take my coat off after about a block, I just got too warm. I rode the bike home and just felt so energized from it. Biking seems to do that, give me energy instead of take it away.
This morning I got to run with my mom which I always love doing. We took off from my place and just decided to run around and explore an area where a new bridge is being put in. After 43 minutes we were back home, so probably 4.3-4.5 miles I’d guess. There was a killer hill we had to go up so I’ll be calling this a hill run. I may do some ab work a bit later too. P90X ab ripper might be calling my name.
Last weekend my family threw a babyshower for my sister in law. I was in charge of food and cake so I made cupcakes. The theme was jungle animals so I made sure the cupcakes went with the theme too.
I thought the elephant was the cutest 🙂
The cupcakes were orange poppyseed. So yummy.
Want to know my tip I used to keep my cupcakes moist? I take a toothpick and poke holes in the cakes once they cooled a bit, then I take 1/2 an orange and squeez juice all over them.
Do you have any baking tips or tricks you use?
