Happy Good Friday and Almost EASTER! I Love HOLIDAYS! and Easter well it’s just the BEST. I didn’t have the best start to my day…more in a second, but came to the office and saw these from my dear sweet boss.
I gave up candy for lent, and she made these to look like carrots adorable right?!?! I also saw this suggestion for an adult Easter basket and loved it via Cupcakes and Cashmere. Heavenly for an adult right?
Last night I was getting in the Easter spirit but trying to do it the Gluten Free way… ha no it does not make Easter Cookies healthier when they are Gluten Free, but it does made them easier on my tummy! Did you know that Pillsbury™ makes a Funfetti® Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix. Just Epic, I know! Last night at about 10 pm we whipped these up, and ate a few of course! So yummy, and no the kids didn’t decorate those, I’m just that talented 🙂
Last night before cookie making, the creator- Kathy G came to Beantown Bootcamp to kick our butts with a Tread Tabata workout. We did some fun new moves, I kicked the speed to 12.4 ( yes a sub 5 min mile there people, I impressed myself ha- remember it’s only 20 seconds!) and got some nasty high hills in!
New moves from class I LOVED!
1. Ladder Hops- Hold a high plank, pretend you are hopping up a 3 ring ladder, close to you, further away, and then jumping close as possible to your hands.
2. Squat Thruster and a Boyband- Do a squat thruster, then jump latterally on one foot and repeat, then jump back the opposite way. Jumping back and forth landing on one foot, with a squat thruster in between.
3. 90 degree Crunch Pulse- lay on back, feet up and bend at 90 degrees, shoulders off the ground and crunch pulse at the top for 30 seconds, don’t let the shoulders come all the way down, just pulse up in that position. KILLER!
This morning I was up bright and early to hit the hills with Beantown, and the hills hit me, I finished 5 hills, and was almost in tears and my knee felt like it was about to give out from under me. This never happens, so I knew something was up- I cut the run, walked to the gym, and ice-iced-baby today. I am hoping it’s just an over doing injury and nothing more- since the Boston marathon is right around the corner. No running this weekend for me.
My oh no face, and here is to hoping rest and ice help- they do right? Please say they do! As an athlete I hate resting, but clearly I need it! What do you do to get rest when your mind fights you?
Clearly I was not a happy camper this morning, but resting, icing, and it will be fine-right?!?! It’s Good Friday, send good vibes my way Please! And a little Friday motivation for you..
What are your Easter/ Passover / Weekend Plans?
Any knee pain recovery suggestions?
Holiday tradition you LOVE!
