Wow…I Had A Very Productive Week

Oh my gosh, I accomplished so much this week.

I have finally made up our Thanksgiving menu. This year we are making all the traditional fixings and my husband is also going to try making smoked turkey breast. For me its not so much about the Thanksgiving meal itself, as it is about the leftovers. I love making meals with the leftovers. And since it’s just the three of us at Thanksgiving time, we have TONS of leftovers…..yummmmmy!


I finally had some time to go through my workout clothes and get rid of some items. I don’t know about you but I am pretty picky when it comes to what I like to workout in. I typically find something I love or find something I don’t fairly quickly. I always where shorts at the gym but dislike shorts here at home, especially in the winter months as the basement can get pretty chilly. This past weekend I found some great buys on some new items so I figured it was time to pitch some things that I knew I would never wear again for one reason or another.  IMG_2895

I also finally set all my end of the year dates. Well, almost, I still have to plan a date to have my in-laws over for Christmas, but that will happen soon enough. I did get my daycare Christmas party date set and our girls luncheon set. Tire installation appointment is made for this upcoming week. (I know, nothing like waiting until the last minute for new tires, we are lucky there is no snow on the ground yet!) And I have every intention to try my best to finish up my Christmas shopping this weekend now that our son finally gave us his list. My list of things to do is getting shorter by the day…for this I am thankful.

And most of all, I had a week of awesome workouts! I finally feel like life is getting back to normal and my body is thanking me for this.Take a look…

My workouts of the week:

Sunday: 1.5 mile walk

Monday: 1.5 mile walk in the morning, 30 minute recumbent bike, stability ball routine, weight lifting, 2 mile walk in the evening

Tuesday: home: 30 minute recumbent bike and stability ball routine

gym: 30 minute elliptical and upper body weights

Wednesday: rest (not a typical rest night but I had an appointment to attend to this evening)

Thursday: home: 30 minute recumbent bike

gym: 30 minute elliptical and upper body weights
last minute change up: 3 mile walk outside (it could be the last walk outside if it snows this weekend like they are predicting so I just had to take advantage of it)

Friday: 30 minute recumbent bike

It feels really good to end the week feeling accomplished. Next week is a short work week with the holiday and I am looking forward to some family lounge time. It seems like we have been go, go, go forever. I need some down time, trail time or maybe just some good old couch cuddle time.

Have A Great Weekend Everyone!
