Hi guys!

I hope your weekend has been great!!

Mine has been BUSY causing lots of “treble” in the kitchen (pun intended…) due to lots of cookbook recipe testing, but luckily we were able to have some friend time on Friday night 🙂  Basically, my weekend has been all about the food with a little  fitness mixed in!

Friday night at Liz and Aidan’s.  They threw an amazing French themed party for Aidan’s birthday!

Saturday I got busy in the kitchen right away, did some studying, and then took a break to fit in a quick run.

I couldn’t believe how speedy my legs were!  This is by far my fastest run at altitude and I am pretty darn happy about it.

Then more cooking…


I am really enjoying testing all of these recipes because it is forcing me to get out of my comfort zone and cook with items that I don’t usually cook with like lavender….

And beef.  Although I’m not a red-meat eater Brian thought this recipe was delicious 🙂

We had a couple of friends spend the night last night, so we enjoyed the fruits of the cook book labor with delicious little egg cups.  So tasty and



So as far as meals go for the week, Brian and I will be eating lots of items I have already cooked (soups, salads, etc) which is kind of nice 🙂

Here is a look at my plan for fitness this week:

Monday:  Strength training and indoor cycling

Tuesday:  Boot camp and teach Cardio HIIT

Wednesday:  Strength training and yoga

Thursday:  Run outside?  Maybe an at home workout?  Thursdays are kind of a mixed bag.

Friday:  Tabata and Total Strength Class

Saturday:  Run outside

Sunday:  OFF 🙂
