Happy Monday friends!
I hope your weekend was filled with lots of fun times and relaxation mixed in there as well. It is super dreary here today…perfect weather for some chilli and baked goods to warm the heart. And of course tons of steaming cups of tea and coffee.
I am like a child when it comes to holidays. Secretly, or not so secretly now…
I love to get the decorations up for every holiday, watch movies in anticipation, and bake holiday treats. I get super duper excited when the holidays come up, you would really think I’m a 10 year old.
I can’t wait to decorate some pumpkins and get more decorations up! Of course, I had to make another trip to Michael’s to gather some “spooky items” for the house.
Yah, you can tell I’m super cool.
Of course, the weekend entailed trips to Starbucks. And making my own pumpkin spice lattes, because heck no I’m not paying above and beyond what I already spend at Starbucks.
And since the weekends are perfect for lazy meals, I prepared breakfast yesterday and woke up to a nice bowl all prepared for me when I awoke.
A bowl of perfect pumpkin oat bran, complete with 1/3 cup oat bran, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1/2 tablespoon shelled hemp seeds, 3 egg whites, 1/3 cup pumpkin, 1/2 banana, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, stevia and peanut flour paste. Favorite.
You may be thinking I’m only eating orange foods, but I’m still getting in my much needed greens too!
Like this spinach salad, but I’ve been replacing the goat cheese with roasted spiced chickpeas. Yum!
The weekends can’t just be lazy, I made sure to get in some quality fitness today as well.
I completed a simple tabata workout, which I completed 4 rounds of.
It was a quick 20 minute workout, but oh boy my legs were burning! And it was done in my house, which I always prefer!
Did you get any good workouts in this weekend? Or do you usually rest throughout the weekend?
Do you get excited about holidays as well?
Have an awesome Monday!
