Quick Post- Tuesday and Wednesday Recap

1 Dec

Can you believe it is already December?

Where has 2011 gone?  I can’t believe we only have month to go until the new year.

My dad flew in to Phoenix yesterday so last night was spent hanging out as he met Quincy for the first time.  Quincy loves his Grandpa and wouldn’t leave him alone!

Today after work, I have a few errands to run and then we are going to play it by ear.  On Monday it was 73 and sunny and today it is a high of 45 degrees and we are expected to get anywhere from 1-10 inches of snow.  I guess my Dad can’t escape the Minnesota winter after all.

We are planning on going to Jerome and Sedona tomorrow as long as the roads aren’t icy and remain open.

Here are my Eats from Tuesday and Wednesday


  • Breakfast-  Black coffee with small slice of pumpkin bread, egg sandwich on English muffin with tomato and cheese
  • AM Snack- Apple and Clif Mojo bar
  • Lunch- Greek yogurt with honey, almond butter and chia seeds
  • PM Snack- Whey protein shake mixed with water
  • Dinner- Salad with chicken breast and pineapple
  • Late Snack-  Hot chocolate with one big marshmallow


  • Breakfast- 1/2 slice pumpkin bread, black coffee and an egg sandwich with English muffin with cheese and tomato
  • AM Snack- Apple and Clif Mojo bar
  • Lunch- Greek yogurt with chia seeds, honey and almond butter
  • PM Snack- Whey protein shake mixed with water
  • Dinner- Burgers

Workouts were the following:

Tuesday- 45 minutes of cardio split between the treadmill and the elliptical

Wednesday- Upper body strength with lots of cardio bursts on the elliptical to keep my heart rate up.  <—My triceps are on fire today!  Ouch!

Grandpa bought Quincy a huge bone and he was so happy!



Thanks Grandpa!


Well I’m off to spend more time with my Dad.  We are waiting for Keith to get home and then heading out for a late lunch!  I wanted to get in a quick post.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a post on my pregnancy workouts!  Have a great first day of December!  : )



  • Do you live close to your family and get to see them often?
  • What is the weather like where you live today?
  • What have you gotten in for workouts so far this week?

    quincy is SO cute 🙂 Yes, we love living close to family and see them a few times a week! So nice, especially when they come and spend time with our boys! Today’s weather around here stinks…gloomy and muggy temps, so of course I have a headache!!! Ugh!

    Have fun with your dad!! My family and I are super close (we live about 10 minutes away) and we always love to hang out and have dinner at their house about once or twice a month 🙂

    The weather is pretty nice here – windy but sunny out – and chilly enough to still sport some fall fashion 😉 And the only workouts I’ve gotten in are the elliptical and treadmill – I need to get in some strength workouts soon!

    Love the Quincy pics – he’s such a cutie pie 🙂

    Enjoy time with you Dad! That will be so nice. I went to Sedona with my parents a few years ago and thought it was so beautiful!

    My husband’s parents and sisters live in Italy so unfortunately we only see them once a year but for 4 weeks. He has aunts, uncles and lots of cousins in Chicago which is nice for him!

    Have fun this weekend!
