My Workout Outfit....I will make you sweat! Instructor=Boss

Last week I did our whole workout to music from Glee, and it was awesome!  Lately, I have really been into the pyramids (there are some in the workout above).  Don’t know why…but I LOVE them!
For dinner, I wanted something quick, fresh, and summery so I opted for delicious salads.  I used spinach, Boston lettuce, celery, carrots, tomato, red onion, canned artichokes and broccoli.  I topped it with the last of our roasted red pepper hummus, white wine vinegar, italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and my favorite condiment….sriracha! If you like spicy, then you will like sriracha…a little goes a looong way.

This was yummy

Brian and I are headed out for drinks later with some friends which should be a great time and good way to spend this beautiful summer night 🙂  Tomorrow, we are visiting our first potential wedding venue!  I am veeery excited 🙂
