How was everyone’s weekend? Did everyone have a great time celebrating Father’s day? Do anything special or fun this past weekend?
Our weekend was pretty low key. We did a lot of work on some changes coming to Purely Fit Life personal training. Saturday we went to the farmers market to get local eggs and duck eggs, grass-fed meat, zucchini and kale. It was busy at the market which is always good to see –> others supporting local farmers. Sunday we called our dad and pretty much did things around the house.
Saturday we did one of Zuzka Light’s workouts off one of her Zcut dvd – a 10 minute workout. Great workout! Followed by holding 2 minute bridge and practiced some headstands.
Lori: Sunday morning I woke up feeling like keeping things simple. Did some yoga and 5 minute #plankworkout. Just want I needed!
Michelle: I am still working hard on getting better defined, toned arms. One workout at a time I will get there! I did a 5 minute #plankworkout and 4 rounds of our purely fit life workout #1 sexy arm routine. I used 10 lbs to push myself more. Oh ya — feel the burn!
After getting back to the house from the farmers market. We decided to all walk up to the Starbucks right up the street. And came back to snack on some figs as we make breakfast.
Plate of goodness right there! For some reason we were craving bacon so we went with the craving and added it to our breakfast. In addition we enjoyed sautéed greens in ghee, eggs, and more plantain grain-free pancakes with coconut oil.
After our bridge holding and Zcut workout we enjoyed a lovely banana perfect fit smoothie for post-workout.
Saturday dinner was a few plantain pancakes (yes we like them with savory foods too) along with shredded mahi mahi, sauted greens, turnips, spiralized yellow squash, coconut oil, and black lava sea salt. YUM!
Sunday morning we started our morning with pancakes! #PFChallenge was eat pancakes – so we happily did 🙂
Gary and I then took Jax to meet up with other dogs for a hike and swim time.
Jax showing off as he was the only dog that swam.
After play time with the dogs we headed home.
Lunch was sautéed greens, bacon, leftover baked salmon, and few plantain pancakes topped with coconut oil and sea salt.
Late afternoon we went out for some interval sprints. We did 1 minute of walking with 30 seconds of full sprint – 12 times. Same thing we told a few of our clients to try as well. We are both loving the sprints. We each came back to enjoy more plantain pancakes with a banana for some yummy carbs.
Dinner was baked salmon, plantain pancakes (yes we love them), sautéed greens and parsnips all topped with coconut oil. Delicious. We love parsnips. We tend to always save them until the end of the meal to be the last thing we eat. And plantain pancakes make great for wiping our plates clean.
Later that evening it was time for me (Lori) to make our beloved protein thin mints. It has been soooo long (too long) since the last time we enjoyed these. We used carob instead of chocolate and perfect fit protein powder instead of hemp protein. As we are still trying to avoid chocolate and hemp a little longer before we experiment with them again to see how our skin does. But so far our bodies like brown rice and carob, so that is what we decided on. And I happily enjoyed one as Michelle enjoyed a yummy healthy bite!
A great way to end a relaxing yet productive weekend.
Twins question: Do you like carob? What did you enjoy doing or eating over the weekend?
Do you like doing sprints? If so, what interval do you like doing?
till next time,
