This past sunday i was craving something sweet that wasn’t *too* bad for me.
enter @haven_selflove with this blondie bar banger! i had to adapt the recipe a little to fit with what i had on hand, so mine ended up as cinnamon hazelnut chocolate blondie bars.
and ho. ly. c**p they were delicious! good fats, whole grains, natural sweeteners—i’m 100% making these again. maybe not “healthy” in the most traditional sense, but *absolutely* better for you than a regular blondie!

(➡️ for the original recipe. also, mix wet ingredients, then add dry. shape on a parchment lined baking sheet. bake at 350f for 13-15 min.)

fyi-press the chips into the top instead of mixing them in for a more ig worthy picture 😂

Movin’ good, feelin’ good.
this is my first decently heavy deadlift day in a while and i am very pleased with how it went.
grip ✔️
speed ✔️
weight ✔️
lockout ✔️
but- had it not gone hunky dory, i wouldn’t have beat myself up over it. learning to be patient with lifting is a never ending task that is integral to long term success.

I’m a big fan of recreating take out at home.
yes, it may not be as convenient, but it is way healthier and still incredibly satisfying.

last night was a super fast fried rice.
just a teaspoon of oil, tons of veggies, 3/4 c cooked brown rice, 1 egg, a splash of low sodium soy sauce and rice vinegar.
top with a lean protein of your choice (i did crispy baked tofu) and lots of sriracha.
🥡🌶

But, like, why isn’t there a pumpkin spice filter?

as much as i dread the cold (and thus the cooling weather that inevitably spirals into deathly freezing temperatures,) it *is* nice not being utterly drenched after a workout.

Sometimes things feel crazy, but are actually fine.
🤡
my squats on monday felt like they were all over the place. the weight was fine, but set up and follow through seemed wonky and slow coming.

maybe i was in my head too much.
maybe what felt like huge missteps were actually super minor or non-existent.
maybe i lost a little trust in my own ability.

my face reads like i royally s*****d up the last rep. i remember it felt like one half of my body came up way faster than the other. but even i can’t tell it in the video.

this month remember that you are probably doing way better than you think. 🖤

Take me back to a cool and cloudy mountain top.

So unbelievably happy to back in my own little safe haven and restart my bench program!

the last month and a half was a busy whirlwind of work and travel.
not that these last few months of the year aren’t going to be crazy in their own way, but i have a lot more time at home to focus on me and my goals.
