Hola amigos! How are you today? Any big weekend plans? I am pretty happy it is Friday. I feel like this past week has been a long one, and I am looking forward to some downtime this weekend.
Before we get to the weekend though, I wanted to share some of my favorites from this week with you.
I am totally in love with these super bright workout tanks that my mom snagged me. They are so fun. Also, I have been doing a lot of Zumba and Turbokick recently, and they seem perfect for it.
I also had the most delicious Acai bowl earlier this week. I haven’t been doing smoothies really while on Whole30, mainly just to follow their recommendations (smoothies are allowed, but not recommended), but I had really been craving one and decided to give it a go. This was an acai smoothie packet, blended up with coconut water and frozen banana. I added a blob of almond butter and a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut on top. It was so delicious. The picture really doesn’t do it justice (my kitchen is dim and it was dark out).
On the workout front it has been a nice variety this week, today is my third day teaching, and I have actually done quite a bit of strength work/lifting along with my class this week. I also got in a Zumba class Monday, Turbokick on Wednesday and some much needed yoga last night. Tuesday I took as a rest day, and I mean REST, I went to bed right after the babies and was out by 8:00PM. It was glorious.
This weekend I am looking forward to some early birthday celebrations for the hubs, his actual birthday is next week. We have a hangout/play date planned with a friend on Saturday and I have book club on Sunday. You may recall me mentioning book club last weekend, I am actually in two. Sadly, I have not read the book for either of them this month, book club fail! Usually I do manage to read them in time.
My book club has a little bit of a hiatus this summer, so I am looking for some books on my own to read. I stumbled across this list that has some intriguing ones.
Since I kind of failed on the reading the book part, I am hoping to bring it on the snack part. This book club is potluck style, and the ladies in it always make the most delicious goodies. I am thinking of trying my hand at making some vegan cheese. I was inspired by this macadamia nut cheese from the Minimalist baker. I will let you know how it turns out if I do.
Last but not least, here are a couple of things that had me laughing this week.
A message I came across that is basically my message from me now to my younger self.
Who doesn’t whisper sweet nothings to their nut butter of choice.
What do you have planned for the weekend? Any good summer reads to share?
Hope you have a great weekend!
