HealthyFudge +Massage + Mrs. Doubtfire

Phew.. we are over the mid-week hump!
    Yesterday morning I made a typical green smoothie for James and I to share for breakfast
  (Ignore the huge bowl of dog biscuits..) I think I was still asleep when I put it together.. I put way too much in the blender and ended up with far more than we normally drink- Well I must have subconsciously thought we needed some extra greens!
     We have been working on this awesome puzzle lately- when James and I have our afternoon coffee after work.. “The doors of Ireland"
  (We finished it tonight.. but it was too dark to take a picture.. so you’ll have to wait until tomorrow!)

Anyway.. after breakfast and another coffee (I’m such a procrastinator) I fit in a little workout..
   I finished in 7:35 and those Toes to the Bar were killer.. Try it out! (Tell me how long it takes you!)

    I worked at the Restaurant and had a client- We went through one of my favorite types of workouts.. the “Deck of Cards WO”… I was pumped and ready to kick some client ass! (I love my job!)
      After my PT client, I ran over to Trader Joe’s to restock coffee (you do not want to see me in the morning without it) and grab a couple of random things.. I even grabbed a bottle of wine before heading home to finally eat dinner
    James was out, so I was my own dinner date.. Unless you count the cast of “Family Ties” that kept me company thanks to Netflix.
   I woke up this morning SUPER excited.. It was massage day!
  Ahhhh.. So much better.. Preventative medicine people- Massage is necessary when you beat your body up almost everyday.. My massage therapist is the best.. She is rough, goes deep and gets out every knot I didn’t even know existed.. I <3 her.="her." p="p">      I made sure to eat well afterwards
 Big bowl of broccoli and a grilled cheese on the Paleo bread..
   Oh so crunchy and fantastic.. I’m so impressed with this bread.. I know your sick of hearing it- but have you made it for yourself yet???
     After lunch I made the twins healthy pumpkin fudge- I modified the recipe and used sweet potato in place of the pumpkin.. and spiced it with cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg… All together now..
   It was some sticky stuff.. (I may have stolen some bites here..) But I managed to smooth it out
 They were right.. the hardest part about this recipe was waiting for it to set in the fridge for a couple of hours. The moment finally came and it was worth the wait.
   YUM.. thank you ladies for making my week! I have a feeling this will be a regular snack over here.
Remember the coconut soup from the other night? Well I thought it would be a good idea to add some protein to the leftovers.. so I had grabbed some fish at TJ’s the add to it
  I have never had Mahi mahi.. or have used TJ’s frozen fish, so I was really excited to give it a try.. Unfortunately- it didn’t turn out well.. I choked a bowl down but it wasn’t good.. I don’t know if it was the kind of fish, the fact that it was frozen, or cooking it in the soup.. but it was rubbery and kind of gross. Oh well… it happens!
    Right after dinner we went on an hour long walk, through the slush leftover from today’s snowfall which was kind of like running on the beach.. My ass was burning by the time we got home! Good thing I went to teach yoga tonight- all about hip openers!
    Now it’s about that time of the night where I grab another chunk of sweet potato fudge and watch Mrs. Doubtfire for the 100 time..



  1. I need a massage and I need to make that fudge right now! :)

    1. Yes you do!! The fudge is seriously awesome- I made sure to cut the pieces small so when I eat 4 of them its not too bad- at least its healthy!

  2. I am totally with you on preventative medicine! Massages are where it's at! Have you tried acupuncture? I've been thinking about getting it done.

    1. I haven’t had the chance to try it yet- but I want to! I did have acupressure a couple of times a while back after I hurt my ankle which helped, though I’m sure it would have been more effective had I been able to do it more regularly. Keep me updated if you get it!
