our weekend highlights

by purelytwins

Happy Monday friends.  And Happy Memorial Day!!

Taking today to remember ALL that have served our beautiful country! Remember all those that have died and served (and still are serving) our country. And saying a special thanks to those people who have done so much to preserve this nation!

Please stop sometime today and say a prayer for our servicemen!


Does that mean Summer is here? Everyone grilling, wearing sandals, and enjoying going to the beaches? Wish we were at the beach right now. Luckily today is a beautiful sunny day so we are planning to be outside when we can to enjoy it!

This weekend, even though a 3 day weekend, went by too fast. We were quite busy over the weekend.


sunday pfl

Sunday’s workout was #PurelyFitLife workout #4 our full body plank time challenge workout followed by doing some pull-ups and lower ab raises on the equalizer. Getting back into taking progress pictures so I can look back and see my progression. Remember small progress is progress 🙂  I also practiced my headstands for #whatsbeautiful campaign. I am feeling a little more confident in doing them!

sunday workout

I (Michelle) did 12 minute core cardio workout followed by sexy arm routine. Did some lower leg raises on the equalizer. I am also trying to work more on my flexibility! Taking one day at time.

Breakfast was bacon, sautéed kale and a duck egg along with plantains.  Later lunch was a bowl of avocado, coconut oil, cod and white rice.

After my afternoon workout I made another smoothie: perfect fit protein, banana, ice cubes, l-glutamine and some spirulina.  Dinner was enjoyed in the car on the way out to the White Water Center. A mix of veggies, salmon and avocado. Upon arriving home that evening I made myself a single cookie. This time I mixed some carob and perfect fit protein with an egg and coconut oil. A soft cookie. Delicious. A great way to end the weekend.

Sunday eats:


Enjoyed breakfast with Lori 🙂 Coffee, bacon, duck egg, kale -so good!  Enjoyed a great workout followed by another Perfecr Fit banana smoothie. Yes, Lori and I are trying to focus on eating more real food, but sometimes we don’t feel like chewing and a cool refreshing smoothies hits the spot on these hot days! We are lucky that our bodies do not mind brown rice protein every once in awhile.  Next, I enjoyed squash with avocado, salmon, coconut oil and sea salt. Dinner was more salmon with rice, avocado, coconut oil and TAHINI!!  Dessert was a carob single serving cookie.

It was a gorgeous night. It was so nice to be able to sit outside to enjoy it. We ended up leaving before the fireworks happened as we were not sure how Jax would have done.

My highlight this weekend was buying a fancy road bike. My first ride on it was a 14-miler with my dad! I have to get used to the saddle, but I’m excited to get into a new sport!
