Good morning – Happy Saturday!!
Yesterday morning, after Jaden went to school, I headed out to do a few errands and go to a much-needed hair appointment.
I went to the grocery store to get a few things for the Halloween party tonight and I decided to make cookies. I bought the ingredients that I needed and made my favorite cookie recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction blog – Reese’s Pieces Butterscotch cookies.
The dough has to chill in the fridge so I made it last night and will be baking the cookies today!
Also while at the store, I found the coffee that I have been buying lately on clearance! I love finding k-cups on clearance for only $3.99.
I have been buying this Green Mountain Autumn Harvest Blend for the past few weeks and I love it.
I went to my hair appointment in the afternoon – got full highlights, a trim, and my eyebrows waxed before heading home to work on my Halloween costume.
Yes, I am still working on my Halloween costume.
This costume is taking way much more time and effort that I originally thought and I’m still not done with it! For all the time and effort I’ve spent you’d think it was a really spectacular costume but it’s really not. I’m still excited to put it all together and get it finished today!
When Danny got home from work, we headed to the gym together. Now that the marathon is over, we can actually work out together.
Yesterday we did a mini circuits workout that included shoulders, abs, and a little bit of cardio. Here’s the workout we did:
Circuit #1: (repeat 3x)
- plate front raises x12
- bent arm side raises x12
- kettlebell swings x12
Circuit #2: (repeat 3x)
- cable upright rows x12
- standing dumbbell shoulder press x 12
- bosu opposite arm to leg sit-ups x12 each side
Circuit #3: (repeat 3x)
- bench sit-ups x 12
- medicine ball oblique twists with a wall throw x 12 each side
- 30 seconds bosu step-ups
Circuit #4: (repeat 3x)
- medicine ball slams x15
- push-ups x12
- kettlebell farmers walk around track (switch kettlebell halfway)
We finished up our workout with rowing 500 meters on the rowing machine. I was feeling it by the time we were done!!
My plans are to head back to the gym this morning for a back and biceps workout. Then I have to stop by the store to get one more thing for my costume – talk about last minute! Then I’ll be baking cookie and brownies and making buffalo chicken dip for the party tonight!
Follow me on Instagram to see pictures of our costumes later tonight!!
Have a great weekend!!
