Give thanks 15 min ARAMP Thanksgiving workout

Give thanks to your body home workout.

15-minute-amrap-strength-training-home-workout-thanksgiving-workout

Hey beautiful purely fit friend!

How was your weekend? Are you getting ready to travel for this Thanksgiving holiday? We both are traveling this year. Not together. Michelle is heading home to south Florida to be with our family and I will be traveling with Gary, Madison and Jax later this week to his parents house over in the mountains of NC.  It will be Madison’s first long road trip! I am probably going to be that overly stressed and worried new mom with traveling for the first time. Luckily we are driving and I feel I will have a little bit more control.  I have made my list of recipes I want to make, now just trying to find some extra time to make those goodies.

What is the best way to say thank you… with a good old sweaty workout, right?

haha ;)

Okay maybe a BIG slice of cake is a better way to say thank you. Or maybe a combo of both. Doing something amazing for your body by working out and enjoying life with a little balance with a slice of cake.

Purely training workout #88 is perfect to do with your loved ones this Thanksgiving! Make sure to tag us on instagram or twitter if you try this workout with hashtag #purelytwins so we can all encourage each other to move this holiday season.

And we both wanted to say THANK YOU for all the love and support! We love our Purely Twins community and our Purely Fit sisters! We are honored to have you in our life. xoxo

Let’s do this workout together!

In today’s vlog I share 3 products I am trying on my skin topically and progress pictures of my adult eczema.

We think our coffee is broken as we are still tired. Anyone else feel like your coffee is broken sometimes? Someone better let Starbucks know…haha

Winter is approaching with full force it seems like! The high here yesterday was 39!! And we saw on the news that some areas of the country are getting snow!! Crazy. We bundled up over here and ventured out for a very short walk. Although we think Madison enjoyed the cool crispy air. Jax sure loves it!

And one way we like to stay warm is with a slice of cake, especially one that is homemade and made with lots of love.

How to make homemade nut/seed and coconut butters in 2 minutes

Sorry for no blog post yesterday. I (Michelle) have had a few really bad days with my eczema so I have not been motivated to sit down and do work. When I am going through a rough patch it literally takes over my mind, my body. I cannot focus on anything besides not itching. And then when I do itch I get upset. Then cry. I feel horrible as I have not been able to help Lori as much with Madison. I feel like a bad aunt. But Lori reassures me they are fine, just focus on me getting better. I will give a more of an update tomorrow.

Today we are in the kitchen making some of our favorite things –> coconut and nut butters!!

We love making our nut/seed butters at home as it is easy to do using a vitamix blender or food processor. And it is much cheaper than buying store bought brands. how to make homemade nut seed butters in vitamix blender and recipes using nut and seed butters via @purelytwins
