Fabulously Fit Friday 8/23/2013

Hi All!

You wouldn’t believe the progress we’ve made, wedding-wise, this week. I finished putting together table numbers and ordered them; I ordered our guest “book” (which is really large white-matted frames that our guests will sign); ordered special gifts; we chose songs to dance to at the reception and I even got to practice dancing with my dad, for the first time since I was a little girl; we booked our honeymoon (hooray!); and we’re on our way to go get our marriage license today! I can’t believe it’s almost here!


[Table 11- I made the table numbers from photos of us over the years!]

Last weekend, we headed to St. Louis for Round 2 of birthday celebrations, this time with my parents! My mom made sure there were plenty of birthday cupcakes to share and candles to wish upon. I felt so special.

We also hit the zoo! The zoo is one of my favorite things to visit in any city (and what we had planned on doing on my actual birthday in Memphis, but it rained), and I hadn’t been to the St. Louis Zoo, so I was so excited to see it! Here are a few of my favorite pictures (They had a penguin exhibit where you could stand inches away from the penguins! So glad we got to see it before the exhibit packed up and moved on.)

I’m so lucky to have been sent some fun new products to try too! I was sent this new Rye and Hemp seed cereal from Attune foods:

…and the new Decadence bars from Enjoy Life Foods! I can’t wait to try them all and let you know what I think!

ELF Bars
I love what both of these companies stand for.  I love that they put out good, real food, and they are geared towards anyone who likes to eat healthy, feel good, and not have to worry about what they’re eating if they have food allergies.

 The Treats I made this week:

Cantaloupe Lassi:

Blueberry Nectarine Coffee Cake:

And last, but certainly not least, I’ve been doing the 100 Reps Challenge! Have you done any of it? It’s never too late to start! I’m on Day 8 today, which is a Rest day, and I’m really nervous and dreading those 100 Burpees tomorrow! Please do them with me and let me know on Twitter when you’ve done them! Sweat with me!

Have a great weekend everyone! 

Full disclosure: I was sent the cereal and the bars by Attune Foods and Enjoy Life Foods, respectively. I was not monetarily compensated to review these products or even mention them here at all. I did because I wanted to and the opinions stated are my own. I am also not sponsored by the St. Louis Zoo, but wouldn’t that be cool?!

    ugh…I did 100 reps each of push-ups, sit-ups, burpees, and front squats at boot camp last week. It was treacherous. I feel your pain.

    Glad everything is coming along:)
