Good Choices.



Happy Friday! I need people to stop tagging cute workout tanks on Facebook, this one I HAD to buy. I don't usually go to the gym on Fridays, but Monday's leg day sucked when I tweaked my back so I felt like making it up.

So, when I'm planning a heavy workout I also plan for my post workout breakfast.

Whipped up a bunch of high protein pancakes to take to work, I spent 4 bucks on some amazing looking strawberries yesterday and plan to put them to good use! The griddle makes it so much easier to cook them all at once, took me 10 minutes. 


At work my office is directly across from my bosses, he can hear me every time I eat  #awkward cause I eat all day long. He saw me shoving this is my face and said 'that CAN NOT be good for you' hahhaha, he thought I was eating sugar cookies with topping for breakfast. #onlyifitfits
Beats fitting in one donut in the break room that won't keep me full for even an hour. 

This breakfast was 415 calories 35c/10f/47p and I'm super stuffed! 
One glazed donut is 260 calories 31c/14f/3p and I'll be hungry again within an hour. 
I can have the donut if I want, but volume is what I need to stay successful all day, having the choice though helps me make better decisions. It's kind of like reverse psychology, tell me to do something and I'll do the opposite. Tell me I can have a donut and I'll choose the better option. 



Changing subjects totally, let's talk about spray tans. I'm adamant about keeping my tan nice and fake, I would like to live long enough to see my kids grow up. Yes it's more work and yes I could just live without, but for real I look a good 5 pounds lighter with a tan. So.


I still use and love my Maxi-Mist Lite Sunless Spray Tanning Machine , but I like to try out new things for fun and someone recommended this tanning mitt so I gave it a go.

1. Exfoliate with the Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt . Freaking love this thing, all you have to do is soak in the tub for 10 minutes and scrub off the old tan - no product needed!
2. Then I apply lotion to my feet and hand
3. I use the Norvell Professional Venetian Sunless Mousse it has the best staying color I've found and it looks very realistic, not orange.
4. I apply the mousse to the Ultimitt and just swipe over my body, for my legs I do the leg part first then use whatever is left over on the mitt on my feet {or hands}. I do have to beg Oliver to do my back, which is one reason I like the sprayer.
I've washed the mitt in the washing machine with great results, it does come with a one year warranty though. 


And finally I had to share this super cute leather earrings, gold lovin'!!!! I love how light weight they are, but still make a statement with my outfit. They are $12 bucks {use code skinnymeg for a discount} over at Jeg Boutique.
