Your like really pretty…

Happy Wednesday!
I can not believe it’s already Wednesday wow time really does fly when you are a busy busy bee!
This past weekend is an annual girls weekend we go up to Sunday River in Maine to ski, relax, and enjoy! It was a blast like every year, but it was cold! On Saturday the feels like read -47 no joke! But we were determined “MIND OVER MATTER” and lasted 10 runs before one us of almost lost a toe 🙂

You can read my Tips for the Gym for making Skiing more fun here. Speaking of the gym I got my bum handed to me today! It wasn’t that we did crazy hard things we just did things that all “matched up” and burned my body up in the best way possible! We were doing Box Jumps and then in between you did donkey kicks, separate these two are not so hard, but together they burned my legs up! Next time you only have a limited time in the gym but want maximum burn try these matched together. Try in cycles of 6- 20 seconds on doing the first exercise 10 seconds “rest” doing the second exercise:
Push Ups, Plank Walk Outs
Sit Ups, Flutter Kicks
Squat Holds, Squat Pulses
Box Jumps, Donkey Kicks
Burpees, Thrusters

Yesterday was my first day back at work, and Tuesday’s are typically longer for me (I teach two classes on Tuesdays and like to workout myself, so that’s about 3+ hours in the gym already). Yesterday I also covered another class and I was TIRED last night. Recovery is so so so IMPORTANT! We push our bodies to the max, and then forget to fuel them. My go to, and easy to remember is a CorePower! Seriously you can drink this right from the bottle and it tastes amazing, has the recovery I need, and doesn’t upset my stomach! A and J actually love the Chocolate Flavor so much they ask for their CorePower Milk. How do you refuel?

This week has also been a big week for Miss A, here first tooth is gone, and she is beyond thrilled. The Tooth Fairy brought here a special dollar, to save not spend, and a note about how beautiful and clean her teeth are and her tooth is a perfect addition to the tooth fairy’s castle. Some great books on the Tooth Fairy. Since A’s aunt and grandpa are dentists, she knows all about teeth and where they go, and how you need to take care of them, so she was very proud that the tooth fairy wrote her a note.
