Winter Wonderland

Happy day before Thanksgiving! Who is excited for tomorrow?! I sure am!

We are running a turkey trot 5k first thing in the morning.

This will be Jacob’s first race and I think he is a little nervous. He has had a cold all week so he is nervous about running while he’s sick. I told him that we’d run together and just go as slow as he needed to go. I really want his first race to be a fun and enjoyable experience.

Tomorrow afternoon, we’re headed to my grandparent’s house for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Friday, I have to work for a short time and then we’re having some family over for dinner at our house.

I’m going to the store this afternoon to get groceries for Thanksgiving and for Friday. I’m trying out a new cookie recipe for tomorrow!


Yesterday, we took the kids and my niece to Winter Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops.

They have a bunch of activities and games set up for kids, and even a talking reindeer.

Santa came out while we were there and my niece was so scared of him until he gave her two candy canes – then she liked him a tiny bit more.

Today’s Workout

  • Cardio Fusion Class – 60 minutes

BodyPump is my all time favorite class. I love it because it makes me feel strong, but Zumba/dance classes are the funnest classes that I have ever taken.

I have no rhythm and can’t dance but I love cardio dance classes. They are so fun, don’t feel like a workout, and everyone is so encouraging. For today’s class, we did 30 minutes of cardio dance followed by strength training and stretching. I burned close to 500 calories during the hour long class.

Well, I am off to the grocery store! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow and if you’re going shopping on Friday – stay safe!

  • What are you looking forward to eating tomorrow?
  • Favorite exercise class?
  • Are you going shopping on Friday? What stores?

    1) I’m just looking forward to eating it all! I’m not cooking, we are going out. I’m too lazy to just cook for 4 of us.
    2) Favorite exercise class – BODYPUMP! LOVE it :)
    3) I don’t think I’m going to go to shopping Friday, because of the last sentence in #1…too lazy, that’s the theme of my life!
    Have a great Thanksgiving Heather! I’m jealous you have your family around you! I will have my parents here at Christmas, so that will be nice, and I’ll probably cook then ;)

  2. I’m excited for tomorrow! My mom makes the best meal :)

Trying to focus on family/friends and not so much on the food:) Up a few pounds so I am not too happy about that… I will be working Friday and I am totally fine with that.
