It’s official – my product launch has taken off and it looks like I might have my life back during the foreseeable future. What a relief! I hate turning into a stress monkey during the start of the holiday season – it takes the fun out of it. I’m almost thankful finals were scheduled before the holidays to prep me for the endless projects in my professional career. Not.
I know promised a video blog with one of my Rebelles, but Friday night turned into wine, cheese, Vampire Diaries night instead so you’ll have to wait a little while longer…
Saturday morning I had every intention of going for a long walk with Rosie or at least going for a run, but alas, the cold weather kept me inside where the bacon breakfast was residing. Seriously, I wish I had more time during the weekday mornings to cook up a beefy meal like we do on the weekends. Mmmmm…bacon.
As I mentioned, Dave’s company holiday party was on Saturday so we hiked up to Berkeley for some horse racing. Yes, the company party was at a horse track. I’ll take it – I’m a sucker for the holidays. **Cue Johnny Mathis**
I used to ride horses until I was about fourteen when soccer became the number one focus and I wish I had more time to practice dressage. Sigh, aren’t they beautiful? I’m not going to lie, I can barely handle watching racing on TV let alone live. The images of Barbaro are still burned into my mind. 🙁
Anyways, the party was super fun and Dave even one a raffle prize…
Tequila! You can imagine how the rest of our night went…
Sunday morning started like Saturday – intentions of working out with Catherine, but the Bay Area storm had other plans for me.
So we decided to stay in, watch the
pathetic 49ers and wait until the rained passed before heading to the tree lot for our majestic selection.
This looks like a bad Home Depot advertisement. Ha!
To make the day more interesting, Home Depot ran out of wrapping so we had to macgyver our tree onto my little car. And pure comedy ensued:
Luckily, the tree stayed put and didn’t cause an accident. Props to my Eagle Scout for remembering how to tie knots.
I’m still giggling about this.
The rest of my day was spent meal planning and
watching Dave put lights decking the halls.
Ever wonder what a CrossFit family eats for dinner? Check it out:
First two meals were killer. I’m obsessed with slow-cooker beef stew. Meat, broth, veggies and anything else you can find in your fridge. What else could you need? Our grab bag section is seriously lacking, but we’re not big snackers. If anything, it’s usually a piece of fruit. Creative, no?
We usually shoot for one night out a week (sometimes it’s two). It helps us save money and stay within our clean eating lifestyle.
Do you plan your meals for the week?
Hey, isn’t this a fitness blog? Sure it is, and now that I have more time – I’ll be able to drag my ass to the box (including tonight – WOD & coaching). Yipeee!
