Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great week. Things are pretty normal over here. Just sleep, work, eat and repeat until Christmas break. On the weekends though I love spending some time getting into the Holiday spirit. This past weekend involved a trip to Barry’s Bootcamp in DC for opening weekend and some festive sweet treats. Sharing all the delicious eats for WIAW, What I Ate Wednesday.
On Sunday over the weekend I was up early and headed into the city for a Barry’s Bootcamp class. Before hitting the rode I drank a glass of Bolthouse Farms Chocolate Plant Protein Milk to help me fuel through the workout.
Did you see this Instagram Post, I’ve teamed up with Bolthouse Farms to give one lucky follower a Chocolate and Vanilla Plant Protein Milk.
Barry’s just opened in DC this past weekend. I tried the workout for the first time when I visited my sister in LA and loved it! It’s a mix of sprints and/or hills on the treadmill and doing exercises on the floor with weights, bands, or medicine balls. Sunday’s workout was a 50 minute Full Body class. The floor exercises targeted upper and lower body and abdominals. It was a great workout and I was a sweaty mess by the end.
Barry’s has an amazing Fuel Bar with a varitey of post workout shakes. But Instead of a post workout shake I decided on eating brunch at Glen’s Garden Market. I had the Greens and Grains sandwich and added bacon. My sister had a hot lunch chicken sandwich. Both were super tasty.
We sat and chatted awhile before decided we needed to satisfy our sweet tooth (we are related after all). Even though it was 40 some degrees out, ice cream sounded like a great idea. Plus a Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream has just recently opened in DC and I’ve never been.
I got the Dark Chocolate Peppermint and Matterhorn with sprinkles and their honey whipped cream. It tasted like Christmas!
By the time I was home I was exhausted but managed to get a few things done around the house, then relax on the couch before prepping dinner. We made burgers in the cast iron skillet (way too cold to grill) and for sides we had roasted potatoes and vegetables.
One of my favorite parts about the holidays is baking Christmas cookies. Last week I made and froze some of these Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles. To add to our collection to take home with us I made some sugar cookies. Tom did an excellent job rolling and cutting and I decorated them.
