Happy, happy Friday, folks! I hope the week treated you well. Do you have any fun plans this weekend? We are driving through the night to Maryland (about an 8 hour drive) for World Cup Finals. My husband’s boss is racing his car, which is awesome. It should be fun!
I have been a touch under the weather this week, but have knocked it out fast, so before I share my week of food and fitness, I want to tell you how I’m staying healthy.
- ECHINACEA- this has been a lifesaver. I bought a bottle of the whole herb pills and have been taking them religiously. They help with immune health, and I will continue to take them.
- TEA AND HONEY- I have been drinking tea with honey everyday since I started feeling off.
- ESSENTIAL OILS- I add them to baths, put them on my body, and diffuse them nightly.
- DETOX BATHS- Mine typically include epsom salts, baking soda, and essential oils.
Sunday is my day off from working out so we spent the day resting, cleaning, and grocery shopping. That evening, we carved our pumpkin and roasted the seeds.
After work, I took my Monday night workout class, the C9 challenge. It felt awesome.
For dinner, I made a pizza using Kodiak Cakes and plain greek yogurt for the crust. I topped it with pizza sauce, turkey pepperoni, cheese, and cilantro. I had a salad with it.
Healthy, filling, and oh so tasty!!
Our wedding anniversary was this day! My amazing husband surprised me with tickets to see WICKED on Broadway!! The show is later this month. We will do our big dinner out that evening and stay in a hotel. I’m PUMPED!
Goodies for me.
I started the morning with a short lifting session. I didn’t feel great. I was tired and unmotivated, but at least I did it.
My mom came over that night for our weekly girl’s night and we got whole foods for dinner.
I LOVE their salad bar!
Salad with tons of veggies and chicken, sweet potato and quinoa chili, and a grain roll.
After work, I went to the gym for a hiit workout on the treadmill. It felt awesome and I was super sweaty by the end.
Dinner was a buffalo ranch salad with chicken and an english muffin.
This morning, I tried out a new workout class called gluteus maxout. It is all focused on legs with some cardio mixed in.
I loved it!!
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day and great weekend!
