Treat your SELF for Valentine’s Day!

Oh, Valentine’s Day, how I dread your arrival. You bring so many expectations accompanied by so many letdowns, so many people bragging about their perfect relationships, and so many reminders of how single I am. But you know what? I plan on enjoying this Valentine’s Day more than any other, because it’s going to be all about me. It doesn’t get much better than that!

I often have to rush through my workouts and cram everything in a short amount of time, so V-Day is perfect for a little extra gym time. I plan to experiment with some new exercises, or take on an extra set of lunges?my favorite exercise. This additional quality time in the gym will also give me a chance to take a look around and see who else is working out alone. Hey, a girl can try, can’t she?

After a nice long workout, I’ll treat myself to an amazing dinner and dessert. When I say amazing, I don’t mean fall-off-the-wagon-and-stuff-my-face amazing. I’ll indulge in a small cheat, but keep it reasonably clean.

I don’t usually get to eat steak,  so I plan on making Asian-marinated flank steak with roasted veggies. Flank steak is such great lean cut of red meat, and served next to roasted veggies, you simply can’t go wrong.

For dessert I plan on making my special Salted Cocoa Roasted Almonds. Holy almonds of goodness are these awesome! They’re perfect to snack on while I sit down, relax, and watch all of my favorite shows.
