Quick and Sweaty With a Sweet

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday Everyone 🙂

As you all know, my evenings sans Zach include an embarrassing amount of bad TV.  True story. Well, I almost had a panic attack last night as I turned on the TV and our OnDemand was not functioning.  THE HORROR!

Thankfully, the torture only lasted one show and everything was good in the world again.  Teen Mom — here I come!

{Exaggerate much, Ashley?}

Thankfully, I had some wonderful food to distract me, even during the “scare.”

A strawberry shortcake roll that has literal strawberries, cream cheese, cucumbers, tempura shrimp and ell I believe.  It’s amazing.  But not as amazing as the sweet treat I made last night staring a new favorite ingredient:

That’s right, this one is a good one.  I’ll be back later this afternoon with the recipe.  It’s one you don’t want to miss.

This Morning

I stayed up later than I normally do watching Lindsey on OWN {judging can continue now . . . }, so waking up this morning came a little quicker than I’d like.  Either way, I got myself out of bed after one snooze and got to movin.

I did a repeat of the hill and sprint interval workout from last week for a little over 3 miles total.

aaaaaaa

The workout includes a quick warm up, diving straight into a hill routine, an endurance routine, a hill/sprint routine, and then a cooldown.  It’s a good one!
