it’s Sunday…part II

It’s been such a lovely Sunday so far and it’s only 5:30pm!  While we’ve done more than laze around the house, it’s still been completely relaxing + fun.

After playing the “what do you want to do, no what do YOU want to do game” for 20min, we decided to go bouldering at Horsetooth.  Then we looked out the window and a storm was definitely headed our way.

So we quickly wrangled the dogs up for a 1.5m walk to our car.  Because last night, we drove our car to the bluegrass show + walked home. [Chris’s bike had a flat]

The rain came about 2min after we got in the car.  #perfecttiming

I hope all of you out East are staying safe with hurricane Irene!!

After our walk, we hit up a neighborhood open house.

Call us nosy, or curious, we just had to check it out.

Completely renovated, charming 2BR 2BA – large backyard – finished loft/upstairs – 6’ tall crawl space, going for a nice chunk of change.  How about $350,000?  WHAT!  If it sells for $300,000, I will be quite impressed.

Then, no Sunday would be complete without a little Home Depot action.

Actually, we haven’t been to Home Depot or Lowes in weeks, maybe months!

Got a few random odds + ends and we were on our way home.

Bodyrock time.  Man did I sweat my face off.

I did the 12min, Booty Firm Up workout.  Yowza.

Then I did moves #1,2,3,6,7,8 from this awesomely hard ab workout.  I’ve done this workout 3 times now and it’s killer.

Recovery smoothie!

Cantaloupe protein smoothie, topped with coconut butter, AKA magic shell!

Cantaloupe Protein Smoothie

  • 2c cantaloupe [cut from fresh + frozen]
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop Raw Protein [17g protein]
  • 1t maca powder [opt]
  • 1c non-gmo unsweetened organic soymilk

Blend, Blend, Blend!!

Check out the magic shell!!  Coconut butter is completely melty at room temperature, but as soon as it hits something cold, it hardens.  I broke it apart with my mallet of a spoon and enjoyed the added crunch + flavor.

And one of my favorite snacks as of late?

A pickling cucumber [minimal seeds, super crunchy!] + 2% cottage cheese + salt + pepper.

Off to enjoy the 2nd half of Sunday…still no clue what’s in store for the rest of the evening!

Hope you’re having a good one!
