Hope everyone had a happy, fun and relaxing (??) Thanksgiving! I was so thankful to have both of my kids home with us. As they have gotten older, the family times are so much more meaningful to me. I just want to hold onto them for as long as I can. Although we had a busy week around here, I managed to keep up with my fitness. The eating is another story but hey it’s only Thanksgiving once a year! Joining in with my friends for the Weekly Wrap Thanksgiving Week Happenings.
Weekly Wrap Thanksgiving Week Happenings
Monday-30 min elliptical + 60 m strength training
Tuesday- 3.5 mile run
My shins were still a little sore and decided to do a short one today. I am probably being over cautious but I really do not want to get injured right now. So short it is.
Wednesday-30 min elliptical + 90 min kickboxing/strength training
Always one of my hardest and sweatiest workouts of the week. Glad I got it in before I started cooking and cleaning up. We hosted Thanksgiving dinner so lots to do! I cannot be left alone with this Chex snack mix that I made “for other people to snack on”.
Thursday- 10K Turkey Trot + cooking and cleaning up
It’s been my tradition for years to run this 10K Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. I decided to take it really slow as not to exacerbate the shins anymore. They felt ok afterwards so fingers crossed. It was really chilly for this time of year.
I have the hardest time getting my whole family to get into a photo together. We got these matching aprons so they pretty much had to oblige me! Mission accomplished- so happy!
I was so exhausted after all the clean up, I slept like a baby.
Friday- clean up and power shopping online
Had zero energy to do anything today besides clean up and put everything away from dinner. I did get most of my shopping done for family.
Saturday- Cycle Class 50 m
Finally had the chance to get to the new indoor cycle studio that opened last week. Great way to start off my day.
Sunday- on the plan Hot Yoga with Coco
We have not seen each other for a few weeks and I love to catch up with my Ultimate Coffee Date host. (next coffee date coming up this Saturday)
Got leftovers? Me too! Hope you will come back tomorrow to see how I combined all my veggies into a delicious Leftovers Holiday Hash. That’s my Weekly Wrap Thanksgiving Week Happenings!
What was your most favorite part of Thanksgiving this year?
