This post is on auto-publish, since Livi and I are bundled up, drinking warm apple cider and cheering for the Pilot in his marathon. I’m so proud of him with all of the training he’s done.. and I have to admit that I wish I was running the half marathon that’s also occurring this morning. He’ll have the race glory for both of us, and I helped him carb load this week, so that counts for something, right? Moral support. I do what I can.

This week feels like a “normal” week, since it’s right before the holiday hustle and bustle is in FULL swing. I type that, but then I look at our calendar to see everything going on. I have a doc appointment, teaching audition, wive’s coffee and it’s the squadron Christmas party. There are also some fun projects I’ve been working on, and it’s time to start studying for my Weight Loss Specialist certification. I took a little hiatus after my last PT test, but it’s time to get back into it. This is also week 2 of the 10 Days of Giveaways! Tomorrow’s prize is worth net $1,000. Buckle up, buttercups <3

Here’s what my tentative fitness schedule is looking like for this week:
(if you’re subscribed to my newsletter, you’ll get a week of workouts in tomorrow’s newsletter! Hope you enjoy)
Monday: HIIT (will probably do Frost HIIT again) and strength circuit
Wednesday: Legs and Yoga
Thursday: Spin (steady and HIIT)
Friday: Zumba audition
It feels SO glorious to be in a regular yoga practice right now. I’ve been learning some new arm balances and tricks, but mostly enjoying the sense of “zen” during a busy time. During yesterday’s class, we didn’t really do anything *new* but it was still extremely challenging. It’s funny how the practice can vary from day to day, and some of my usual easy poses were a lot more difficult. I’ve found that I can finally trust myself in tripod headstand… I’d always been worried of being the yoga domino rolling into the poor person behind me.
The tentative dinner and prep plan for the week:
-Grilled rockfish with lemon and capers, maple roasted carrots, asparagus
-Bean-free chili and cornbread with honey butter (a certain someone always licks the butter off and says “I want more butter!” Livi likes it, too)
-Chicken and fettucine alfredo (dairy-free sauce) roasted veggies
-Chop and wash fruit and salad veggies
So, tell me friends: what’s on the menu this week? Are you trying any new recipes or fitness classes?
Have a happy Sunday and I’ll see ya later with some weekend pics.
