Weekly Workout Recap

Even with the holiday workouts pretty much stayed the same this week.  We weren’t traveling so it was easy to head to the gym.  I did try a new training class at the gym where we went through 6 different circuits 4 times through.  It was a great post Thanksgiving workout!

Monday: Taught a 45 minute Cardio Conditioning Class
Tuesday: Taught a one hour BodyPump Class 
Wednesday: Taught a 30 minute Total Body Weight Training class
Thursday: Did a 3 mile run/walk and a standing AB Circuit
Friday:  Took a LIT Class at the gym
Saturday: Did this yoga video
Sunday: Did a 2 mile walk on the treadmill

Thanks for reading today!  Hope you have a great rest of your week.

    Your tree looks so good! We are going to decorate this weekend and I can’t wait! 🙂 This year for Thanksgiving, I made a veggie pot pie and it was so good and filling. Ironically, it’s often a problem that I’m hungry because there aren’t a lot of options for me to eat but this year that wasn’t the case!

      Thanks Heather, the house always feels so festive when everything is decorated. And yum a veggie pot pie sounds delicious! Yes I imagine at gatherings it’s hard to find things you can eat, better just to make it yourself 😉
