5 mile treadmill run- 3 of those miles were mile repeats. First time ever doing repeats. Um…… those are no joke. Those are from my new coach. I promise to tell you all about him soon.

So I can’t believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Holy smokes.
At one point I was in charge of cranberries, but I got taken off the list once our plans changed a bit. I’m spoiled. I also wait until the last minute to sign up on the sign up list and use having twins as an excuse a lot to bring the easy stuff. I wonder how long I can pull that off. I also wonder how long I’m even going to be invited to dinner. Ha ha. I really should surprise some people with bringing some kabocha squash. I’m sure that would go over well.
Like I wrote this morning, I told Joaquin if he kept his pants dry all morning at the gym that we could stop at Starbucks on the way home.
It didn’t happen. I don’t know who was more disappointed, as I was really craving some Starbucks. He had a really great rest of the day though so fingers crossed we’re making some progress here. I’m so over buying Pull Ups and washing load after load of laundry every day.
I pretended I had a Starbucks at home and whipped up a quick Café Americano in my cool cup.
I also roasted some kabocha squash.
1/2- 1 scoop GNC Vanilla Egg Protein Powder (17-34 g)
1-3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
Confession- I don’t really measure the applesauce. I just add enough applesauce to make a good consistency. Warning- only add a little bit at a time though and keep stirring. It can get too think really quickly. I have to say it blends up surprisingly well and is darn delicious.
The boys and I decided to have a little indoor picnic while watching Dancing With the Stars.
Oh, and I really think we could teach those DWTS finalists a thing or two. I mean, our dance party pretty much put them to shame. Ha ha.
I know I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll keep saying it, but I really love GNC Pro Performance® 100% Egg Protein – Vanilla Ice Cream. Besides topping my kabocha and sweet spaghetti squash with it lately, I even made an iced protein Café Americano with it the other day that I posted on Instagram. Since I don’t want some of you to feel left out or anything here it is.
Iced Protein STUFT Americano
brewed or prepared instant espresso (Starbucks instant packets work too)
1 cup cold water
1/2 cup ice
1/4-1/2 cup milk of choice (I use unsweetened almond milk)
1/2-1 serving GNC vanilla egg protein powder
1-2 sweetener packets (optional)
Blend the milk and protein powder together. (The Magic Bullet works great.) Put the espresso, cold water, sweetener packets (if using) and ice cubes in a glass. Top with the milk/protein powder blend.
Um yeah. Good stuff. I didn’t even add any sweetener because the protein powder has just enough already added to it.
Okay, so now the challenge.
Oh heck yes.
It’s a “Workout Before You Porkout” friends.
I stole the title from the YMCA where I teach. I usually teach at the special workout every year, but this year I’m not, so the next best thing was to come up with a challenge for you all.
Are you in?
The boys and I made this video of the workout for you last week.
It’s only 4 minutes and it can be done anywhere. As always the boys are causing a commotion in the background.
At one point Joaquin is even on my back as I try to do push ups. Lovely.
Here you go.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I hope to get a post up sometime during the day, but if not, enjoy every second with your family and friends, and of course with delicious food.
