Weekly workout recap!

Oh, hello. Didn’t mean to disappear all week, but here we are for another weekly workout recap. I didn’t even fully realize it’s Friday until this morning, so I have no meal plan to share again 🙂 Hope these workouts give you some ideas though!

Week of workouts

It’s Friday! Woohoo! If it’s not clear, I’ve officially fallen off my meal planning game…and I can’t motivate myself to get back into it. We have some loose ideas for next week – pulled chicken that should get us through a couple nights, mini pizzas, chicken sausage/baked fries, and homemade tomato soup over the weekend….

When the baby’s away, mom will… + today’s strength workout

Vera slept over my parents’ house Sunday night, so my Monday morning was wide open. I had planned to do some productive things….like run, write, maybe have a fancy breakfast. It turns out, the way I like to spend my time when Vera is not around is….sleeping in (I mean only until 6:15 but still),…

Weekly workout recap

Morning and Happy Friday to you! Big plans this weekend? We’ve got swim lessons of course and may check out a festive Halloween event….and yes, I got us family costumes. Hopefully I can convince Mike to wear his though 🙂 Here’s a recap of my workouts for the last week, since last Friday! Friday: Two-mile…

Rise Nation class: review + tips

Over Labor Day weekend, I took my first Rise Nation class…and it’s safe to say I love it. I’ve taken just one more class since then due to scheduling but I would love to be able to take more. However, because “I love it” is not very helpful, I thought I’d share a more detailed…

Last week’s workouts

Welp, all I’ve got for you today is a workout recap. But if you’re looking for meal planning ideas, it’s a great weekend to break out the slow cooker for Chakchouka or BBQ chicken bowls.

Last week’s workouts + next week’s meal plan 9

Happy first day of Fall! Everything seems a bit out of whack because it’s been over 80 degrees most of the week but indeed the leaves are changing colors so we know sweaters, boots and snow are just around the corner. In truth, I love this time of year through the holiday season. It all…

Last week’s workouts

I don’t really have my act together this morning – a combo of a clogged ear and staying up too late reading (oops) – so I am just here to share last week’s workouts. Hopefully I come up with a meal plan tonight, haha! Photo by Davies Designs on Unsplash Last week’s workouts:  Friday: HIIT…

Last week’s workouts + next week’s meal plan 8

First things first, make sure you check out my post about the Cleveland Heart Walk on September 23 as well as ways I try to make healthy just another part of our overall family lifestyle. AND be sure to register for the walk, yoga class or cycling session!  Woohoo, it’s Friday already! It certainly feels like…

Favorite yoga poses for recovery

While I love high-intensity workouts, the kind of yoga I prefer is actually the slow, gentle, restorative kind. I have taken (and enjoyed) 60-minute hot yoga sessions where I do get in a decent workout (and sweat a lot), but it’s not my go-to workout of choice. When I’m drawn to yoga, it’s usually because…

Last week’s workouts + next week’s meal plan 7

OK, back to your regularly scheduled program after last week’s hiatus. (And ICYMI, I posted yesterday about a few of our dinners from this week to make up for the lack of meal plan. Check it out for more inspiration!) Photo by Brady Cook on Unsplash How was your week? Things were better the second…

Sick day + last week’s workouts

  I’m checking in this morning feeling a bit discombobulated. Vera’s cold had her cranky yesterday morning and her raspy cough had us concerned. I feel like you can really tell in that photo she was out of it. I kept her home and we went to the doctor. She does not have croup, thank…
