No, you’re not crazy….it is Tuesday, and this is last Friday’s post. I was having a couple of issues with the blog, and wasn’t able to post images. What’s a blog without pictures right?! Hence, it prevented me from publishing this post till now. Last week was a good week of fitness, fun and food! Although now I have a killer cold…ugh. Brent and I are off the detox! Will get into that in a sec. First things first, a “Flashback” photo.
I’ve was thinking a lot about my Mom last week. I think with the holidays coming, it reminds me of her. It was her favorite time of year. I miss her so much. For those of you new to the blog, I lost my mom in September 2007 to colon cancer. She was so healthy and cancer does not run in our family. It was a huge shock. This photo was from around my 24th birthday August 2004.
Food last week:
Tried a new recipe I posted. It was from Cooking Light, the Slow Cooker Thai-style Pork Stew. I had a bunch of flank steak on hand (super lean) so I used that instead. I actually ended up doubling the sauce ingredients, but I probably didn’t need to. I ended up cooking it longer than I needed to, so a lot of the sauce ended up evaporating. It was delish!

Also had some people over last Sunday for dinner. Did a healthy Turkey Lasagna, with salad, and the Date Squares for dessert. They were a hit!
On Thursday (Rememberence Day), Brent and I ended up going to a friends house to see her new baby. He was soooo adorable, and Brent could see my baby fever from 10 miles away! I know what being a new mom is like, and the lack of sleep and good food, so I brought over a couple goodies for her, which were well received.
My Pumpkin Loaf
I posted this recipe in the Recipe Club last week. Its a healthy take on my Mom’s recipe!
I also have been playing around with a healthy fudge recipe, and came up with a really great one! I’ll be keeping it a secret for a little while longer. Will be filming a video of it very soon 😉

Workouts This Week:
Did some great workouts! I was pretty sore after (from Wednesday’s & Friday’s workouts!)
Sat/Sun – OFF
Monday – OFF
Tuesday – 30 min cardio at gym (eliptical)
Wednesday – Bootcamp. Went to a class. We did 200 kettlebell swings, plus a interval circuit
Thursday – Interval workout at Gym with my GymBoss (love that thing!). It was a shoulder/arm focus. I will post this workout soon so stay tuned!
Friday – 45 minutes cardio at Gym (Stairmaster, intervals)
Sat/Sun – OFF
As mentioned last week, I’m trying to scale back my workouts. 3-4 days a week max. I should be doing 3 only. Its tough, especially when I’m used to working out 5 days a week typically.
Now being SICK this week, I haven’t worked out since Friday. So this week I may only get in 1 workout 🙁 Urgh, hopefully I get better soon.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s FAVORITE FIND WEDNESDAY! I’m super excited about this one!!!
