Thanksgiving and the Turkey Trot Recap

The holidays are always over too quickly! As I said yesterday, we had a great few days hosting family and then decorating the house and relaxing just the four of us. I’m linking up with Katie today for MIMM. A few photos from the weekend:

Workout Recap + Meal Planning

Hi all! I hope you’re making the most of this long weekend. We enjoyed hosting family for a few days. After everyone left, we spent Saturday painting clay ornaments, getting a tree and decorating for the holidays. I can’t believe tomorrow is December already!

The most efficient way to strength train

Hope you all had a great weekend!

In the September Reset Challenge, I shared the foods that help and harm metabolism. Besides what we eat, our physical activity has an impact on our metabolism, too.

Recovery week + Meal Planing

Brr… this was the first weekend I pulled out tights for running, how about you? I hope I’m ready for a long winter of training. Winter running is not my favorite but with an April marathon, I really don’t have a choice this year.

Workouts this week after Saturday’s half marathon:

Sunday: recovery 4 [...]
