Hurricane Sandy= Monday Funday and Yoga Challenge Week 4

Hi Guys!

Happy Monday! Even though there is a storm a brewin’ I am happy because I got to work from home today!  CJ also got the day off, so we are having a little Monday Funday over here. Even though I have to do work, it’s still nice to get to spend the day with my main man.  I’ve always wanted to work from home, and let me tell ya, I am living it up over here.  I didn’t change out of my pajamas til 3 pm!

Since CJ worked yesterday, we didn’t get to do our usually Sunday routine (sleeping in then making a huge breakfast and watching Breaking Bad), so we did it today instead.  I had never baked with fresh cranberries before, and I have a huge bag from the CSA, so I wanted to make some muffins to compliment our breakfast._MG_4093_MG_4100 _MG_4101_MG_4111

I used a box of Jiffy corn Muffin Mix, and added a few fresh cranberries to each muffin.  I don’t usually like to use box mixes (unless I’m making pumpkin brownies), but they are handy when you don’t feel like looking up a recipe and measuring all the ingredients.

IMG_0553To go along with our cranberry corn muffins, I made baked grapefruit, while CJ made fried eggs, sweet potato hash and toast.  You know how much I love huge breakfasts!

I saw baked grapefruit somewhere a while ago and I have been dying to make it.  I found a simple recipe online that said you could use either maple syrup or honey.  We happened to have a bottle of each from the CSA so I made one with honey and one with maple syrup.

After topping with honey or maple syrup, sprinkle with cinnamon, and then bake at 375 for 15-20  minutes.

Yoga Challenge Week 4 recap (can’t believe it’s week 4 already! Thanks Courtney for hosting such a wonderful challenge!)

Goal: 4 yoga sessions
Actual: 4 yoga sessions

Wahoo! I accomplished my goal!

Here’s what my week of workouts looked like:

Monday: Off
Tuesday: 30 min Hatha Yoga on youtube
Wednesday: 1 hour PiYo class with mom
Thursday: Off
Friday: 15 min Yoga + 5 min Skinny Minnie midsection workout from Sarah Fit
Saturday: Body Pump (1 hour) + 75 min Heated Vinyasa Yoga
Sunday: Off

I wanted to do a little yoga yesterday but my legs were a little sore still from my double workout on Saturday,  I love rest days, they are good for the body and mind!  I got in a solid hour today at home since I figured my gym probably wouldn’t have it’s usually class due to the storm.

I’m off to enjoy the rest of the night!  Stay Safe if you are near Hurricane Sandy!
