I took this weekend off from blogging just because I wanted to spend the weekend relaxing. Back to normal for the week though!
First things first….its my birthday!!!!! Can’t believe its finally here. And that September has seriously FLOWN by.
You can’t have a birthday without wine…
Happy 54th Birthday to my Mom!!!!! Yes, we do indeed have the same birthday!
She’s my number one role model in life and I look to her for any advice. She’s also my best friend and I love her more than anything. So, Happy Birthday Mom! Love you lots!
With it being my birthday and all, its pretty much a given that today with be marvelous.
The day started off swell, with one of my favourites.
Overnight pumpkin spice buckwheat
In the bowl:
- 1/3 cup buckwheat (ground in my coffee grinder before cooking)
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/2 scoop vanilla sun warrior
- 2 teaspoons chia seeds
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 banana
- about 1/4 teaspoon each stevia, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
- and cashew butter to finish it off.
Today is going to be spent with some nice relaxation! My Mom and I also decided to make a trip to the Farmer’s Market, which I was pretty excited about.
I love buying local foods and supporting farms in the area. Plus you can’t beat those fresh veggies and fruits!
I got to pose with a pumpkin which I was pretty pumped about, but other people weren’t so enthusiastic with my pumpkin love. Sucks for them.
Please don’t mind my dirty workout pants…I had to scrounge in those bins filled with pumpkin to choose the best one to get a picture with.
Also had to sneak in my fitfluential tank too.
The Market is actually owned by a guy who is in our spin class, so that’s pretty cool stuff too.
I was very strangely excited when I saw a bin of my favourite squash. People stared at me and I tried to play it cool…which I am not.
These Kabocha’s are called Sweet Mama’s, I just adore that name.
And they are the BEST kabocha’s I’ve ever eaten. That is saying a lot.
I also found another squash I quite like the name of….The Hubba Hubba. That’s a real squash name people!
They also included a list of the different winter squash types. Fun learning times.
Later, I got home and decided I wanted to get in a workout as well.
I love box jumps and burpees!
I changed it up a bit, and did that workout but added on 10 pike push-ups. I completed this in about 18 minutes and worked up a nice sweat in a short amount of time. Thanks for the workout Electra!
What do you usually do on your birthday?
What’s your favourite type of squash?
Have a fantastic Monday!
