It’s snowing and it’s magical and all I want to do is decorate, drink coffee, and write down goals for the next 3 years of my life 🙂
I hear today is like the biggest party day of the year since not many people have to work tomorrow (if you do, I’m sorry, that’s shitty…unless you like it, then it’s great!). I will be enjoying a grasshopper for sure tonight with my fam. Can’t wait for some minty goodness.
Since Sam has been on break from school this week, I’ve been able to get to a few classes at Alchemy and it’s been so nice. My bod is def slowly getting strong again and it feels so good to move. However, having a baby takes away any core strength I once had. I’m focusing on slowing down and building up those muscles one ab at a time.
This morning I did a super fun workout at Anytime to get in a good sweat before Turkey Day. I did a bunch of different squats mixed with some rowing and then finished off with the following:
5 sets of 5 reps: Power Cleans
Then…3 rounds as fast as possible of:
10 Box Jumps
9 Hang Power Cleans
7 Front Squats
5 Strict Press
I did this all with a 45 pound bar. I finished with 10 minutes of walking at an incline. So great. I got home an instantly downed 2 protein muffins complete with whipped cream and peanut butter and 2 eggs with avocado.
So, what else have we been up to lately? Harry is the wiggliest little monster ever so I’ve been trying to find ways to entertain him. I’ve also discovered that every day he looks more and more like his dad. He’s a mini Sam and I’m 100% ok with that because I think Sam is pretty cute 🙂
I’ve also been trying to taste all the lavender lattes in MN and got one from Spyhouse yesterday and while it was $6, I’d get it again and again. So good, so lavender-y. I mean my homemade version wasn’t terrible compared to this one but I think I need to pull the trigger and get that espresso machine…especially if I’m going back to work in a month. Yikes.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I can’t effing believe it. My fave day of the year is already here and there’s SO much to be thankful for. I love going around the table and having everyone say one thing they are thankful for this year. Here are a few on my list:
- Healthy family
- Harry, Ruthie, and Sam
- A roof over our head
- The best friends who are always up for adventure
- The ability to dream big dreams
- A family that believes in me
- Food and coffee (duh)
- Having patience
- The ability to vote
- Living in a country where women are being more valued every day
- Snow, Hallmark, and Christmas music
OK, now I must go pack up Harry’s room as we get ready to head to my parents for a few days. I wish you safe, yummy, loving Thanksgiving. Stay cool ya Turkeys!
