happy birthday 'merica: watermelon cake [+ fitbook CAMO giveaway!]

who's ready for 4th of july? and what better way to celebrate our great nation’s birthday in the middle of the scorching, hot summer than with a biiiiig ol’ watermelon?? mostly water (as its name so aptly implies), this juicy melon not only hydrates and cools like a boss (helping you sip 8 + eat 5!), it’s also packin’ tons of vitamins + nutrients like lycopene, antioxidants + amino acids. but we’re not talkin’ about plain ol’ wedges. after all, every birthday needs a cake! which is why we felt compelled to frost our melon with creamy, protein-loaded greek yogurt + sprinkle it with sweet, antioxidant-filled summer berries. now who wants the first slice??

    My favorite go to tip is to have EVERYTHING written in my Fitbook for the week and clothes, shoes preworkout out, because I will follow through with that first instead of skipping it for all the barbecues LOL!

    We like to go to the local park and hit the trails. Our favorite is the red trail, which is 3 miles up and down the mountain. And there’s nothing better than a cool, refreshing fruit salad as a post hike snack!!!

    My favorite outdoor activity is walking at the beach and listening to the waves. I purchased waterproof sandals and a sun protective hat and cape to wear when I am out in the sun. Whenever I am stressed, I picture the beach in my mind’s eye!

    It’ll be a nice barbeque with the family for me. I absolutely love the summer because of how easy it is to eat deliciously grilled veggies. My faves are grilled zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms with a little balsamic and s&p.

    I like to make a salad using blueberries, cucumbers, feta and white balsamic vinaigrette this time of year. It’s quick and easy to make and always a hit at picnics.

    The weather has been a bit on the cool side, but we are hoping It warms up enough for us to get in our pool and swim. Swimming is great exercise that feels like fun!

    My gym holds a great big patriotic themed class that I am super excited to be attending! Just a little way of making things more festive before the fireworks and fun of the day :)

    We are under a heat advisory for this holiday weekend. So staying hydrated during our out door activities is a must. We will swim at the complex’s pool and cookout before fireworks at night. Plenty of fresh fruit and light fit salads to go with what gets grilled. (Some are on diets and others aren’t but there will be healthy fit choices)
