12/4: Weekly fitness + healthy meal plan

Hi friends! How’s your weekend going? I hope you’re having a great one! We met up with some friends in Old Town for family dinner (+ Friday night margaritas) and spent Saturday playing and getting some work done around here.

I thought I’d share my workouts from last week + our meal plan for this week since we’re planning and prepping. I’d love to hear what’s on the menu for you, too!

Thursday: Taught Cardio Barre, short booty-lifting workout, + took the pups for a long walk

Friday: Spin instructor training on the new TechnoGym bikes (they are AMAZE); probably 30 minutes of hard work

This recipe combines butternut squash bowls with savory chicken sausage, zucchini, tomato sauce, and Italian spices.  Hi friends! How’s the day going?

Booty-lifting workout

Hi friends! Hope you’re having an amazing day. We are slowly making our way through the post-vacation laundry avalanche. It feels good to be back home, but I wish that a magical fairy would appear and make all of the *stuff* disappear. That would be cool. In the meantime, you’ll find me buried beneath the […]

Thankful for you.

With everything going on, it’s easy to get lost in the stresses of the day: the to-do lists, work obligations, making sure everyone is alive, happy and fed, and the everyday stuff. I try to take moments throughout the day to soak it all in, and to maintain a spirit of gratitude amidst the hustle […]

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? Thank you so much for chiming in with your advice about P’s great crib escape. We’re doing the adjusted crib for now, and I’m googling Sleep Sacks like crazy.
