Life has been a little crazy lately 🙂 I was home all last week working remotely, spending time with family, and breaking it down on the dance floor at my sister’s wedding. I had an exceptional week at home!!!
Before I do a “quick” recap I want to wish my incredible parents Happy 35th Anniversary! Thanks to their continuous love, support and guidance, I am the woman I am today. I’m so grateful to call them MY parents.
So, what did I eat last week? I’m proud to say I was good 90% of the week. I enjoyed a burger (no bun) and sweet potato fries one night, and then a lot of popcorn (left over from the wedding) on Sunday. Throughout the week though I had two eggs with an avocado, shakeology, and lentil-lime salad. I also enjoyed a delicata squash and a gluten-free “pizza” made on gluten-free bread (just one slice).
Wednesday night my parents, brother, his girlfriend and I went out for sushi. It was SO good. My brother and dad taught my brother’s girlfriend how to use chopsticks. She’s left-handed and said she’s never been able to really use them properly. It was SUPER entertaining to watch.
On Tuesday morning we woke up to this:
I was happy as a clam; the rest of the family not. so. much. See my sister got married on Saturday and everyone was afraid the snow was going to delay people from getting to Pittsburgh. Thankfully the weather cleared up.
I kept up with my workouts for the week, although I didn’t take any pictures of my double workout on Friday. I was too focused on getting my workouts in and getting ready in time for the rehearsal dinner.
Day 6 of T25
Day 7 of T25
Day 8 T25
Wednesday marked the first night of Hanukkah, which meant that Hanukkah was going to fall on Thanksgiving. This won’t happen for another 70,000+ years. My parents found this Menurkey that marks the occasion. It came plain and my dad decided it needed a little color
Day 9 T25 – Turkey Day! I treated myself to Starbucks to enjoy with breakfast and the Macy’s Parade!
We had 34 people for Thanksgiving dinner. As if planning a wedding for my mom wasn’t enough, she cooked dinner for everyone and had gluten-free options, vegetarian options, and everything was nut free. My mom is SUPER woman. P.S. She found these napkins that said “Gobble Gobble N’at” (Pittsburghese)
Day 10 T25 – Forgot to take pictures
Day 11 T25 – Decided to get my workout in first thing before I headed back to Austin. I knew that I would be too tired from traveling once I got back to Austin. I was SO glad to get it done; it made traveling so much better.
All those workouts kept me sane throughout the week. With all that family around and my sister’s wedding, it was 25 minutes to myself. I must say though I think I burned more calories on the dance floor than I did in all my workouts combined; maybe. My mom KNOWS how to throw a party; I swear she missed her calling as a party planner. My sister looked GORGEOUS and everything about the wedding was fantastic! The ketubah signing & wedding ceremonies were very special and left several of us in happy tears. I was so honored to stand beside my sister and new brother-in-law as they exchanged vows. I’m beyond happy for these two and wish them many, many years of happiness together.
Well, that’s all I have for now. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
