Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was a great mix of fun and relaxation, but as always I’m not ready for it to be over. Thanksgiving Break can’t come soon enough! Here are all the workouts, Fall meals, and other Weekend Highlights.
Friday night was a great conference win for Tom’s Football team. I got home from the game, warmed up with a warm cup of tea and headed to bed because I was teaching BodyPump in the morning. So Saturday I was up early because myself and three other instructors at my local gym launched BodyPump 103. We had a Halloween theme and dressed as the four seasons, I was spring.
I taught shoulders, abs, and cool down. I LOVE this releases shoulders track, even though shoulders are usually the most difficult for me. And my legs are definitely feeling all the pulses from the squat and lunge tracks. Any BodyPumpers have thoughts on the new release?
Then it was home to shower up, drink a smoothie with vanilla protein, collagen peptides, half an apple, almond butter, and cinnamon, very Fall like combo. I did some chores around the house, ate some eggs and my Roasted Butternuts Squash Pasta Salad while I made a grocery list and headed out for a few errands.
I got home in time to do some meal prep while watching the Ohio State vs. Penn State Game. During the game Tom smoked chicken thighs and I worked on the sides of roasted brussels sprouts and potatoes. We snacked on a charcuterie board while watching the game. And YES Go Buckeyes!
Then for dessert I made these Apple Cider Spiced Donut Holes in a mini muffin pan. They were delicious and the perfect Fall dessert.
Sunday morning we had a much needed sleep in and then lounged around for a bit before I headed into Virginia to attend a Breast Cancer Research Donation CylceBar ride by Sweat Pink. I had never been to CycleBar, but war really impressed with the cleanliness and welcoming atmosphere of the studio. There are many different studio locations across the US. It was a great workout and for a cause that’s very meaningful to me and my sister who joined me for the ride.
Post workout we decided on something healthy so hit up Sweetgreen. I had the OMG Omega and added their spicy broccoli and mushrooms, because both are my favs!
When I got back to Southern MD I out our lunches for the week. Thanks to making lots of chicken, potatoes, and veggies on Saturday it was pretty easy to prep some healthy meals.
Then it was a mix of football and This Is Us on TV while eating doughnuts before the weekend was over.
