Don’t you hate when you are on a health kick but you have one of those days where you would like nothing more than to dive head first into a pool filled with saucy buffalo wings, greasy pizza and maybe even some cheesy nachos? Yea, me too.

I would kill for a plate of wings for dinner tonight but I know that tomorrow’s Katie will be kicking herself. I know that it’s OK to spoil yourself now and then but I promised myself that I would save the bad calories for the weekend.

20130424-155510.jpgSO, I headed to Pinterest (obviously), and found a cheater’s “buffalo wing” recipe. The kicker? The chicken part is actually cauliflower. Now, I know this probably doesn’t sound very appetizing to the saucy fried chicken lover. Trust me, I am one of them and would be lying if I said I am not a tad weary to try this mysterious recipe and taint my love for the buffalo-y goodness of real wings. But I am picturing my beach bod and am crossing all fingers and toes that this may actually be halfway decent.

Wish me luck!

Need some motivation?

Whenever I am in need of some fitness motivation… Pinterest is always to the rescue. All I have to do is look in the “Health & Fitness” category, see a board full of perfect abs and asses, and suddenly I am a body builder, no fitness challenge fazing me.


Today was a legs and butt day at the gym, and mine feel like they are burning off as I type. I question whether or not I will be able to walk to my car in the morning. “Hi boss, my ass is on fire, I need to use a sick day.”

Really though… squats and leg presses are my new best friends, and I live for the days that they are on my workout schedule. Today I did 5 sets of single leg presses,  5 sets of “sumo” squats with the free bar, weighted step-ups, 90 degree wall planks with lifts, seated calf raises and a quick 2.7 mile bike ride. I was able to do more  than anticipated, which is always a nice surprise. Especially when shortly after my sets, I watch a big guy struggle with less weight than I did. Hoorah!

PS, one day my ass will look like blondie’s.
