This week’s workouts had a plan – TO ‘EARN’ THAT THANKSGIVING SPLENDOR!


Since we were hosting Thanksgiving this year, which was kind of a spur-of-the-moment decision, I tried to ‘plan’ ahead the week to avoid too many sneaky indulgences the week OF and instead enjoy that day with family traditions and new recipes!


I worked on drinking more water and was sure to eat as clean as I could during the week, avoiding the occasional potluck at the office. I pushed my classes harder in preparation, for both them and myself! I’m sure they were so appreciative of that too 😉


I focused with my online group on NON-SCALE VICTORIES. We took the time to credit ourselves for milestones like belts and pants getting looser, endurance increasing, running PRs, and compliments from those we know! Celebrating progress is a great way to keep the momentum going – even through the holiday season, no excuses!




All week I cooked and prepped so that the day of Thanksgiving we were able to spend time with our family and not be stuck in the kitchen all day. That meant I took some shortcuts and ordered a cooked turkey and used the heck out of my crockpot. I did make homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce, infused water, sweet potatoes, veggies and antipasti on a platter, and cookies if that’s any consolation.


Seeing my family together – relaxing and laughing together – was well worth the time spent preparing.






They remind me WHY I do WHAT I do. WHY I work so many hours each day to create the life we want to live for them.







Insanity Max:30 releases on TUESDAY and that’ll be my next focus to up the ante on my progress and keep my body guessing! A post on that will come this next week so you can get a sneak peek into my new best friend “swolemate” workout and learn how you can do it WITH ME!
