While you were BodyPumping…

Hi guys!

It hurts to type this. I’m finishing up BodyPump instructor training this weekend and every muscle in my body is crying (tears of happiness, of course). ;) I’ll post a full recap when the training is over for those of you who have been considering certification, but I will say that it has been an amazing weekend and experience so far. Just with our full day of training yesterday, I’ve learned many new form cues and motivational techniques. Our trainer is a POWERHOUSE and I’ve enjoyed learning from her this weekend. 

It felt good to come back home to the family last night:

(If I’m wearing a hoodie, Liv asks me to “kangaroo” her and zip her up with me. The best… also the closest thing we get to a Moby wrap these days)

While I’ve been at instructor training, the Pilot and Liv have had a great daddy-daughter weekend. They went to the beach yesterday, we all enjoyed a grilled dinner and watermelon last night, and who knows what adventures they’ll get into today :)

This week will include my last round of recipe testing (wahoo!), a fun dinner party here at the house, and  excitement for my mom and nana to visit. They’ll be here in two weeks and I can’t wait to see them. 

Here’s what’s on the tentative plan for the week:

Sunday: BODYPUMP all the day

Monday: OFF

Tuesday: Teach Zumba (!!!)

Wednesday: Barre3

Thursday: Runday 

Friday: Orange Theory

Saturday: OFF

Dinner and plan/prep ideas:

-Cinco de Mayo! (<– my favorite Mexi-meals are in this post) Chicken enchiladas, rice, beans and margaritas are happening over here

-Dinner party: classic salmon, Greek chopped salad, stuffed grape leaves, pizookies and ice cream for dessert

-Turkey joes, roasted veggies and sweet potato fries

-Make amazeballs

-Chop veggies for salad

-Make homemade Ranch

-Make cauliflower rice

Are you planning and prepping today? Any fun Cinco de Mayo plans??

Hope you have a very happy Sunday <3

Off to squat press my little heart out.

Weekend, feel free to stick around a little longer. Not only have we been living up our last few seconds of time here in Tucson, but I’m ok waiting until the unpacking begins (even though let’s be real, it will be nice to get it over with). A funny story: Livi thinks our base hotel […]

Morning! How’s your weekend going? Ours has actually been kind of *normal*, which is especially nice considering the fact that we’re in for a wild and crazy next couple of weeks. The movers came on Friday, packed up half the house and left it livable for us to enjoy this weekend before they come back. […]

A jog in the rain

Hi friends! Hope you’ve had an amazing weekend <3 Arizona has been hit with a crazy (and much-needed) rainstorm. I have to say, it’s a little more enjoyable indoors than it is running in the pouring rain (Thank goodness for heaters!) The Pilot and I ventured up to Phoenix to do the Phoenix half marathon […]
