Birthday Wishes

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! It was a great day, filled with all of my favorite things. 


After a glorious morning of sleeping in ... I made it to the gym. 

I warmed up with these dual-overhead kettlebell squats. Tricky! Then moved into the pause front squats, at tempo. 4 seconds down, 3 seconds in the hole, explode up. Hah, except I'm pretty sure molasses was moving faster than I was. 

Because I had the day off, I spent a little more time in the gym than normal, and honored a Hero, "Collin." 


Afterwards, I got some serious rest and relaxation in the Hydro Massage! And felt like Gumby afterward.


I cleaned up later that evening for dinner and drinks with friends at one of my favorite restaurants over the Lake Belton, Deadfish Grill. Tastier than it's name, I promise. 





Is this not the most GORGEOUS cake ever? And I am able to enjoy for days without any of the guilt! (It's 100% made of flowers :)

That's what these were for ... 


My friends made SURE I got my fat girl on. 

I had a wonderful birthday! And I'm so excited for what's to come this year!

Do you prefer the cake or the frosting?
Chocolate or vanilla?
When is your birthday?

  3. Happy Birthday! I hope this year will be a good one for you. I was wondering what advice you have regarding fish oil. I noticed that you use SFH brand. Have you found or heard first hand from anyone that taking it helps to improve body composition and/or recovery? Just wanted to get your $.02 on it.
