Wishing you the very best weekend.

This work week is coming to an end, and for us, a busy family filled weekend is ahead. Saturday morning starts early with Wreaths for America with my family, then a holiday party at my sisters, followed by a sleepover at my parents with my nephew – and that’s only Saturday. Sunday is a Christmas party with my dad’s side of the family, then celebrating two of our niece’s birthdays at dinner. I’m looking forward to soaking up some family time! In other news, here’s a picture of our Christmas tree that I am oh-so in love with… can’t I keep it up all year?!

Bragging [Running News]

Hola! How’s your day/night going? Mine is going really well! I had a great day at work, it was both busy and productive, and a great run and meal after work.

Do you ever feel like some days you just getting the running bug? That was me today. I kept seeing the sun shining from my desk, and I knew I had to get out there! By the time I was ready to run, it was 6:05pm and the sun had set, so it was quite cold!

Despite the cold cold cold wind, I still had a great run! And the best part, my knee held up for over 3 miles! This hasn’t happened in over a year… I am on cloud nine :)

I then made dinner from leftover turkey meatballs… it was called a makeshift meatball sub ( I mean very  makeshift).

Toasted piece of bread, mozzarella cheese, slice of tomato, sliced turkey meatballs, mozzarella cheese on top (x2)! It was really good!

Hope you’re having a great night as well!

Quick & Dirty Workout

Hi, friends! So the other morning I had slept through my alarm, thus meaning I had a evening workout to do at the gym. When I arrived at the gym, it was packed (per usual in the evenings). I had intended to do a kettlebell workout, but with limited space in the free weight area, I abandoned my kettlebell workout. I made up this workout with the limited space and equipment (using both kettlebells and dumbbells) and I really loved it! Hope it can be of use to you as well.

**I am not a certified personal trainer, this is a workout I made up on my own. **

QA: Do you ever make up workouts on the go? I used to think I couldn’t make up workouts, but now I trust myself to give it a go!
