Holy soreeee

ok, so far I am in love with weight lifting, the Savage workouts, and even the Savage diet! I feel full of energy and completely satisfied throughout the entire day. On Monday I worked my back and bis, Tuesday was legs and abs and today is a cardio only day! Thank god because I basically had to pull myself out of bed this morning. This is all a new feeling to me as I have never pushed myself hard enough to this amount of soreness but I am loving it! My cardio only today is supposed to be a run.....but we will see if I can get these legs to move in a running motion for 40 minutes. 
As far as the diet goes I am eating every 2-3 hours and drinking tons of water. I actually feel full throughout the day. The only time I find myself wanting to snack is late at night so I've been going upstairs and getting out of my kitchen early! 
Breakfast today was a smoothie with 1 scoop of protein powder, 1 cup of spinach, 1/4 cup of oatmeal, 1/4 cup of blueberries and some almond milk! It really hit the spot! One of the hardest things I am finding is having 1/2 cup- 1 cup of veggies in all 6 of my meals.....not easy for me! I took a trip to Cider Hill Farm in Amesbury to stock up on some local fresh grown veggies. Olivia and I picked out some spinach, asparagus, zucchini, cucumbers, blueberries and a couple of peaches! We were sure to take a little ride on the tire horses before we left! its just not a trip to the farm without visiting the chickens and playing on the tire swings! Cider Hill is one of my favorite farms, such a great atmosphere and for a special treat the absolute best donuts around! (I did not have that special treat yesterday I promise!)

 I talk a lot about my daughter Olivia and husband Adam but let me introduce Lance to you all! After reading Julie's very scary morning I realized I don't even talk about my little love on here that much!  Lance is the love of my life....my 5 year old maltipoo! He was given to me as a gift from my husband before he deployed to Iraq and I must say he kept me thoroughly entertained and busy during Adams deployment! I think you will be seeing a lot more of him around here! 

Off to get my morning started and figure out how to keep my Olivia entertained on this gorgeous day!
