Basic Leg Workout

I’m enjoying my first day off of this holiday week, how about you?  One of my greatest joys of being off work is sleeping in, and heading to the gym at my own leisure.  Usually, I wake up at 5:15 in the morning, but today I made it a bit later.  Sans alarm is always a good thing, no matter how early.  Following my new workout schedule, I’m hittin’ legs today at the gym.  Itz a basic routine, but one that works all the muscles and leaves you sore the next day.  Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!

Supersets are my favorite.  Have I said that before?  Now that we’ve talked fitness, let’s talk food.  It is the week of Thanksgiving, after all.  Itz What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) with Jenn at Peas and Crayons.  Click on the button below to see over a hundred other like-minded bloggers posting delicious eats.

We’ll start with breakfast.  Coconut Flour Pancakes, obviously.

Topped with coconut oil and fresh strawberries.  Day after day, it doesn’t get old.  Lunch the past couple of days has been leftover grilled chicken breast from my parents’ house (we graciously always accept leftovers!) wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla and stuffed with spinach.

I smeared stoneground mustard from my September Foodie Pen Pal all over the tortilla.  Simple, yet delicious.  Last night for dinner, Jonny and I went over to his aunt and uncle’s house because a very special someone was in town.

Rose is a hilarious, adorable, smart, and sassy seven-year-old who lives in Los Angeles.  We don’t get to see her very often, so when we do itz a real treat.  Rose is Jonny’s cousin’s daughter and was our flower girl in our wedding.  Dinner definitely didn’t disappoint.  How can you go wrong with pizza, salad, toasted ravioli, and spaghetti?  You can’t!  Dinner x 2:

Later today I’m meeting this lovely lady at Panera for our traditional lunch when she’s in town.  As always, I’m super stoked to see her and catch up in person!

  1. Bumma I am not off work today but t hat’s OK b/c the office is bursting with people in good moods because this Wed is a Friday haha. You look so gorgeous in that photo, love the sweater. And that stoneground mustard sounds incredible!

  2. ahh it’s my first day off of school today too! I loved not setting an alarm and sleeping in. totally the best…i’ll be up early tomorrow for a Turkey Trot, so I took full advantage of this one! Have a wonderful break!

  3. I was so happy to be able to “sleep in” a little bit this morning too… Sadly though I ended up waking up at the exact same time as always. And I didn’t even set my alarm clock! 🙁

    I’m off school today, but honestly it’s pretty boring because my mom still has to teach today, and my brother still has class today. At least my dad’s home though so I’m not totally bored 🙂

  4. Hello, my beautiful lady! I know this is kinda late, but I’m loving the makeover ;). I didn’t have classes today, but I sure was busy. For the first time, my mom is not in the States to cook us yummy food so the pressure is on me this year! Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!!
