Well, my workout was a little distracted today but it still went pretty well. My boys (hubby & step-son) were bickering as usual. It's like having 2 kids. haha But I am still very much sore!! It will be nice to have 3 rest days this weekend. Hopefully I'll keep my diet in tact. I always do better with my eating when I'm working out. Wish me luck!! Oh!! and I made some carrot cake protein bars. They're delicious!!! :D Make sure you try the recipe. Mmmm We'll be spending quite a bit of time with Justin's family this weekend because his parents are in town so I probably won't be blogging until Sunday night. I hope that you all have a great weekend. Make sure you're eating healthy & working out if you want that sexy bikini body for summer! ;)
