What's Up Wednesday: March 2021

 



Hi Friends!  Happy End of March!  We are in the throws of Spring and although we are still in a pandemic- I am following the joy and seeing glimmers of hope everywhere....linking up HERE and sharing What's Up With Us!

 

 

What We're Eating This Week

 

Monday- Ground Turkey, Broccoli and Brown Rice in Tomato Sauce (Recipe Coming Soon- has been a go-to once/week for the last few months!)

 

Tuesday- Taco Tuesday with Rice!

 


Wednesday- Lemony Chicken and Broccoli with Angel Hair

 


Thursday- Breakfast For Dinner- Pancakes, Bacon and Berries

 

Friday- Good Friday- Pizza and Salad

 

 

 What I'm Reminiscing About

 

Last year at this time....the lock down...the quarantine...the newness of it all...the fear...the panic...the sadness...the losses to come...it all became too much :(

 



 What I'm Loving




My Workout Routine

Trying to experience variety and trying different classes at my gym and also trying to get outside as it is getting warmer!


Sample schedule:


Monday- KO- Stands for Knockout- class at my gym which is a mix of cardio and weights


Tuesday- Synergy- class at my gym that is all weight training


Wednesday- Shred- class at my gym that is in a heated room and is a mix of cardio and weight training and then I walk outside at night with my friend Bethany


Thursday- YOGA!  It is actually called Power at my gym- the yoga room is heated and there are some intervals so although it is low impact, you still burn more than in a typical yoga class- I find it so restorative...some great stretching and mentally, a wonderful escape


Friday- Private Training with Besties- these are the hardest workouts of the week- mix of cardio and weight training with our kick ass trainer Kelly


Saturday- Date Walk with the Hubby


Sunday- Rest Day


Sometimes, depending on my schedule, I need to change this up a bit but during the week, I am also back at my desk by 8am and ready to rock- early mornings are best for me


I am feeling healthier- stronger and so so motivated!

 

 

What We've Been Up To

 

We watched Daddy's new band on FB Live- so much fun!

 


The guys in the fam enjoyed a morning of Virtual Golf

 


 and the Ladies "lunched"

 


 

There has been more dance, of course, for Diana



 and dinner with besties....

 


 

Pidge wrapped up a wonderful hockey season....

 


 

and the Dance Moms celebrated Misty turning 40!

 


 

 I have been loving working out but the greatest re-set comes from weekly yoga....


 

Wine Group resumed at Lisa's and it was a cozy little night of trying sparkling wines from all over the world


 

We started the bday celebrations for Cass...

 

 

and made Tik Tok Pasta...what a hoot!



Eva has become obsessed with the U.S Presidents so we have started to enjoy books and videos together....she is demanding that we get to Washington D.C- I told her we would try when things are a bit safer ;)


Remi is keeping us on our toes!


Shannon and Cindy made it back on the school board...



and weekly time spent with the BFF is just what the doctor ordered!


Diana got fitted for her Invisaline


 

 and Remi tried to come to Yoga with Mama one morning- ha!



Date Walks have continued on Saturday mornings...early!





and the Fab Four celebrated St. Patty's Weekend for the 4th year in a row!  Felt wonderful to have a "normal" night out together 





Diana enjoyed a successful Dress Rehearsal and Photo Shoot at LDA to prepare for YAGP....




and the event itself was the experience of a lifetime- we are all so grateful!






We celebrated Mimi's Bday....




and Papa Bob's Bday....




and I have enjoyed Wednesday Night Walks with "B"




and Remi got accepted into Obedience School....so funny but oh so needed!  ;)
