Let Me Eat Cake

I went to the gym today, but it was an off running day. It was cardio, abs and arms day. I want to stick to my training schedule as much as possible. I knew I wasn't going to use the stair master, the row machine or the other leg thing I do. I want to make sure I don't injure my knee before I continue running.

I went on the elliptical for 20 minutes, then did abs for about 20 minutes. While working on my arms, My first set, I felt something pull a little. The second machine, a little more. I thought it was my imagination and didn't think it was anything. The 3rd machine, I defiantly felt something pull, hard. I was in pain, once again. At least it wasn't anything to do with my legs. I don't need my arms to run!

When I left the gym early, I went straight home. I was getting un-dressed and ended up making myself shed a tear or two while removing some clothing. I can't believe how badly that hurt. I can't raise my left arm above my head or lift anything heavy. I feel so stupid for injuring myself my first day back. The good news is that I am able to workout tomorrow. It's a running/spinning class. I can't wait to run again. The last time I ran was on Sunday, but it feels like forever, because I didn't run yesterday. Another good thing, I don't feel bad.

After my shower, I had some left over lasagna. It was even better today. It really is the best I've ever tasted! Last night, I made a cake (2 layer). It was pretty good. I used my little brain and made something good.

Here's a yellow cake (from a box) where I added some chocolate chips.

I also made Savannah Chocolate cake (I left out the sauce) and topped it with home made blackberry jelly.

I placed the yellow cake on top and then iced the cake with The Best Chocolate Buttercream icing.

Since I used 2 different pans for these cakes, they didn't line up very well (at all). The jelly started squirting out (ever though I barely put any on) and then iced the cake. Because the jelly was coming out, the icing wasn't sticking to the cake. The cake looks pretty ugly, but tastes absolutely amazing.
Have you ever pulled an arm muscle? How long did it last?


  1. looking at the pictures makes me hungry..this is so yummy..

  2. That's weird about your arm muscle, I don't think I've ever pulled one. The cake does look like a hot mess but am sure it is tasty! (who cares what it looks like anyway lol, not like it'll be on display long!)

  3. Yum--I'm hungry looking at those cakes! I hope the arm heals up quickly.
