It was a busy Saturday, so I have many updates and things to share! And since photos are more fun than writing…
After a successful shopping outing with my mom and brother, it was time for an at-home CrossFit(ish) workout! I was hoping to be able to get outside but the rain was persistent. Not to worry, I had been saving up ideas for an indoor, equipment-less workout and this was a perfect chance to try it out! And I was ecstatic when my brother decided to join me 😀
No-frills circuit: 5 Rounds for Time-
- 20 air squats
- 10 push-ups
- 20 sit-ups
- 10 standing lunges
- 5 burpees
My (not so) little bro finished in 12:45 and I finished in 13:23! I think it was a pretty good workout to get my heart rate up and I’d definitely do it again if I was stuck in a hotel or something.
The workout was followed by a tasty lunch…
After a haircut and some afternoon errands, it was dinner time!
I decided to make something I’ve been reading about in the paleo-sphere for a while: cauliflower mash!
Personally, I thought the cauliflower mash was deeelicious. However, the mashed potato-fanatic (my brother) thought it tasted like gross, mushy cauliflower. Guess you can’t please ’em all!
And now I’ve just been enjoying watching my awesome Yankees 🙂
…in case you missed it, they ended up kicking Oriole butt, winning 15-3!
I’m heading back to DC tomorrow afternoon, but with plenty of time for some yoga and brunch in the morning. My mom started cutting up fresh fruit for a fruit salad, and I’ve already helped myself to a few servings of that.. nom nom. Hope you’re all having a fab weekend and have a Happy Easter (if you’re celebrating) tomorrow! (Will someone please eat a chocolate bunny for me??)
PS. Even though the main reason I write this blog is to track my fitness/foodstuffs, it never hurts to know when you peeps are readin! I love all the comments so keep ’em coming! 🙂
