Good Morning! Happy Saturday – can you believe this is the last weekend of October?!
Yesterday morning, I taught part of the BodyPump class at my gym. It was the first time not using my notes during a regular class, and I thought it was my best job yet!
I didn’t use any weights during the lunge track because when I do, my right leg hurts for a week. Since I am filming my video tomorrow, I figured I’d save my leg and use weights during the video.
Yesterday night, Danny, the kids, and I met my dad at the pumpkin farm to go on a haunted hay ride.
My dad and Danny always find it necessary to “fly” at this part of the pumpkin farm.
Jaden, who is pretty much scared of his own shadow and refuses to go to the bathroom alone in broad daylight, loved the haunted hay ride. It baffles me. He’s scared of being alone in the bathroom but he loved the crazy guy with a chainsaw. Whatever.
After the hay ride, we hung around a bit and had some hot chocolate and then headed home.
Tonight is the Halloween party! I am so excited to see everyone’s costumes!
I woke up early this morning, and the kids and I watched It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown while I finished up my Halloween costume.
My brother and sister-in-law got me this DVD three-pack last year for Christmas because I love the Charlie Brown holiday movies.
I finally got my costume totally finished, now I just have to try it all on together to see how it looks.
I spent the rest of the morning baking Reese’s Piece’s peanut butter cookies.
These are the same cookies that I made for Labor Day. I used this recipe. These cookies are delicious – probably the best peanut butter cookie that I’ve ever had! Not the healthiest, but the most delicious
I also have to go to Whole Foods today or tomorrow. I am starting my Grain Brain Challenge on Monday and it will end November, 25 – so exactly four weeks. I made a grocery list and now I just need to get to the store!
