Well, we woke up to a small blanket of snow this morning. One out of the two of us was very excited about it… Okay, I’m actually trying to really change my perspective on winter and find ways to love it this winter… fake it to make it right?
On today’s schedule I had 7.3 hilly miles @ an 8:16 pace and then I hit up some planks.
1 minute normal plank on elbows (palms flat on the ground.. makes it a little bit harder)
45 second side plank on each side
1 minute plank on hands with weights and shoulder presses (I do 8 on each side before switching to the other arm)
1 minute plank with leg lift (30 seconds on each side) to get the core and glutes really good.
After a break I went through the 4 different moves again but for a shorter amount of time on each one.
Just as I was finishing up at the gym my mom sent a text telling me that she was craving Cafe Rio tortilla soup. I will always support others in their cravings and so we joined her and I had a steak salad.
My portable heater that makes winter much more enjoyable.
We stopped by Target afterwards and they had the best samples ever. Brooke tried her first ever Ghirardelli square and she was a huge fan too.
The above sample inspired a box of brownie mix and I will be adding the only acceptable addition to brownies—> ROLOS. Also, thank you for weighing in this morning about the nuts/brownies situation.
We got the rest of our pics from LINDSEY and I wanted to share a few more of my favorites wahoo!!!
