I am so excited that we finally have a new capable President. I believe that this country will turn around with Obama leading it! Yay!!!
I’m posting from work again so this will be quick. I’ll update with more photos from the inauguration party we attended last night, later tonight.
BEST FOOD OF THE DAY:
This is a peppermint cheesecake brownie my friend Katie made and her boyfriend brought to work for us. These were absolutely incredible and I was so happy to hear that they were even kind of healthy. She used this recipe from Cooking Light. Did I mention how much I love Cooking Light? I know my photography doesn’t do these justice, but I’d say they looked even better in person than on the professional Cooking Light photos. Great job, Katie – I’m impressed!! 😀
STRANGEST FOOD OF THE DAY:
I know this is not usually a category I use, but this cupcake definitely deserved a category of its own. A friend of ours made bacon chocolate cupcakes over the weekend and brought a few to the party to share. Of course I had to try one…very hesitently! 😉 The verdict? They weren’t bad. The bacon flavor was pretty mild – it was more of a texture thing. Bacon pieces in my cupcakes – no thanks! I ate most of it (shared a few bites with my husband) but I definitely wouldn’t want to make them or buy them in the future. The cupcake batter and frosting (sans the bacon) were delicious! Oh, and the decorations were of course very appropriate for this historic day.
OTHER EATS OF THE DAY:
Like I mentioned before, I’ll add some more close-up photos tonight (my husband and I brought some truffled crostinis… yum!). Unfortunately I sat right next to the table, so I munched on the food all night and unsurprisingly still have a stomachache this morning. Why don’t I learn?! I also had 2 champagne glasses and 1 glass of red wine.
I don’t know if it’s the yoga or Jillian’s routine I did on Monday, but my butt is killing me!! I am hardly ever sore, so this is the strangest feeling ever. Seriously it’s hard to sit or walk… or breathe. Haha, I know you don’t breathe with your butt, but somehow my body moves a little with every breath and I feel how sore I am. Oh yeah, my shoulders are sore too!
Anyways, I thought to stretch myself out a little I’d take an abs class followed by spinning. I hardly survived this little combo! Workout stats:
- Duration: 0:55
- Calories burnt: 461 (40% fat)
- Ave HR: 145; Max HR: 203
All right, time for me to sign off! Hope you have a great Wednesday! I love it that it’s Wednesday already after only 1 day of working 😀
*edited to add* – here are a few more food pics from the party!
And we brought 2 types of truffled crostinis (sorry for the terrible photos!!):
All right, peace 😀
