#FoodieFriday – Birthday Dinner

Happy Friday all!

This week has been quite eventful! Not only was it Labor Day, but my twin and I turned 22 on Wednesday. To celebrate, we headed to one of my favorite restruants, the BoneFish Grill. It was a perfect place for a low-key birthday! The staff was great, and they even gave us a card with chocolate truffles and a coupon! Super cute!

In order to prepare to go out to eat, I merely limited my fat intake this morning for breakfast and lowered my carbs at lunch. By substituting egg whites for whole eggs, eliminating cheese, and ditching my afternoon cliff bar and oats, I made a little room to splurge for a celebratory dinner.

I ended up ordering “The Mule” with no mint to drink and a seared Ahi Tuna Steak drizzled with Pan Asian Sauce.  For sides, I picked steamed broccoli and jasmine rice as my sides. I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday dinner!

In any case, the season of birthdays, barbecues, and anniversaries is finally coming to an end, and I am ready to hit the ground running with some serious “health!” I think its finally time to set a goal and strive to hit it–stay tuned!

#WorkoutWednesday — HIIT

It’s finally September, and after a long summer, I can honestly say I am stoked for pumpkin everything and colorful leaves! This past weekend, I took my MCAT Exam, and I can honestly say I am so proud that I DO NOT HAVE TO STUDY ANY LONGER! And, with achieving any milestone, indulging in some treats to celebrate is absolutely necessary! Plus, it was Labor Day weekend–the last big hoorah before school picks back up. Needless to say, I feel it is only right to get in a HIT workout this week to sweat off some of the excess water I am holding.

I completed 3 Rounds with 3 minutes rest in between.

Warm Up – 10 Minute Walk(because who can say no to this face!)
