Happy freaking Monday! Hopefully your weekend was filled with lots of love and good times.
I hope everyone took a moment to tell someone how much you love them and how much they mean to you. We should be doing this more often, not just because tragedies occur.
For me, this was a chance to open my eyes and appreciate the love and life I’m blessed with each day.
What did everyone get up to this weekend? I tell you mine was spent with lots of good workouts, coffee, food, friends and family. In my opinion, the perfect equation to equal a fantastic weekend!
First up, weekend workouts. If I don’t have time to workout first thing in the morning, I’ll simply do a pre-workout that consists of 10 minutes of HIIT.
I actually really enjoy “sleeping in”, followed by a quick workout to wake myself up and get my metabolism boosted first thing; always followed by a delicious breakfast.
Later that afternoon, I did another longer workout that consisted of some planking and arms.
Lots of planks. My arms and abs were on fire. It was quite painful to get through.
Coffee with my Mom is always lovely. She even puts up with my super annoying blogging picture taking.
Now that is love.
I’m excited that this week we’ll have even more family at our house to spend Christmas with.
My Aunt and Grandma are heading over here from Toronto on Tuesday, so it will be exciting to see them!
Good eats happened as well, obviously.
I happened to have Chelsea’s pumpkin chili saved and I finally got the chance to try it this weekend.
I made a few small changes, instead of corn, I used zucchini and left out the onion and garlic as well.
Thanks for the awesome recipe Chelsea! I’m pretty excited to have leftovers of this awesomeness!
I’ll leave you with a thought provoking quote, that I love.
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”
I hope you’re making this Monday a marvelous one.
What was the best thing you ate this weekend?
Do you love Starbucks as much as me?
Do you like early morning workouts or later in the day?
Sending love your way!
