I just got back from my last Body Pump 72 class ever. The new BP 73 launches on Friday at my gym, so I made sure to really pushed myself in tonight’s class. I increased my weight on chest and triceps to 28 lbs. and 23 lbs. respectively. I also worked really hard on my favorite 72 tracks: Kelly Clarkson squat track and Green Day biceps track. Both are tough, but fun! I am so exhausted now, but it was totally worth it. 😉
After work, I needed to run some errands at the mall, so I called Mal to see if he wanted to meet up for a quick coffee date. The timing worked for him, so we met at Dunkin’ Donuts for iced coffee and donuts. Mal had a glazed donut and I had a fun “springtime” munchkin. 😉
I ended up spending way too much time at the mall, so by the time I got home, it was nearly dinnertime. Murphy still needed to go for his afternoon walk and Body Pump was in just a few hours, so I threw together a quick meal for Mal and me.
The folks at SeaPak sent me a coupon for a free product the other day, so I made their frozen Tempura Shrimp for dinner tonight.
I also made some Roasted Broccoli to go along with the shrimp.
The Tempura Shrimp was excellent! It came with a packet of sweet and sour sauce, so the combo tasted just like something you would order at a restaurant. But, without a coupon, I wouldn’t normally buy this product. Eight pieces of shrimp cost $7.99! 😯 For an everyday dinner, it’s just too expensive for me. For a special occasion, however, I would definitely recommend these babies. They’re tasty and they took just 15 minutes to cook in the oven.
I <3 roasted broccoli. Every time I make it, I always wish I had made more!
I added a small side salad to give the meal more “volume” and, of course, nutrients.
For dessert, I broke into the “Mal Only” peanut M&M’s. Shhhhh!
After Body Pump, I enjoyed a chocolate protein shake made with vanilla soy milk. Delish!
