Weekend Recap & Launching the new workout



How was your weekend? Were you busy & productive? We had a lot going on, but I liked it.

Friday night Is typically our low-key night. Butttttt my dad offered to hang out with Ava while Marc and I grabbed a quick bite to eat at or local favorite restaurant Barcelona.  We shared some delicious tapas and it was a nice mini date night out!

(These were a few of the tapas we got: Chili Brussel Sprounts, Hanger steak with Truffle Sauce, Spinach & Chicken Casserole)

When we got home from dinner, I fed Ava and put her down for the night.   Shortly after Marc and I watched some TV Shows on Demand that we missed from the last couple of weeks. I don’t typically watch a whole lot of TV during the week, so we play catch up on the weekends when my body wants some rest on the couch.

What are some of your go-to shows? I am a huge fan of Scandal & Grey’s so I was super pumped when the Fall Season kicked off last week!! I am one of the few people that have been watching Grey’s since it started. I seriously get super pumped when it is Thursday!!

The weather Saturday was crummy and literally made me not want to get out of bed. Ava was my reasoning for getting out of bed, that little girl wakes up ready to go, she gives me energy. My mom stopped over in the morning, and I practiced the new Group Power workout with her. Instructing the workout is the only way I get better :)

After I finished practicing, I quickly showered and got ready before Marc’s family arrived.


It was sooooo nice to spend time with them.


I love seeing Ava and her cousin Natalie together. They love each other and it is too cute to see them play, Natalie is clearly the ring-leader.


Once the rain cleared up.. Natalie enjoyed splashing around in some puddles! I probably should’ve taken my shoes off and joined her, she was clearly living in the moment it was the favorite part of my day.


When I woke up Sunday, I was confused as to what day it was! Does that every happen to you? I guess since I was heading to the YMCA at 815 for Group Power, I felt like I was going to work but really I was going to participate in a class.


We had quite the group and I’m pretty this workout confused our bodies in a good way.

In the afternoon we went to Marc’s softball party at Fairways Restaurant in Greenwich. Luckily my mom was there to help us entertain Ava, she had a lot of energy.


It was a beautiful fall day outside!


They had a live band at the restaurant and the music was great, I am sure Ava’s little ears were ringing when we left.


Shortly after we took this picture Ava crashed from all of the festivities so we headed home.


And nowwww I am off to teach the new October release of Group Power. Wish me luck, my muscles need it!

What is something fun you did this weekend?

Do you like rainy days?

  1. I used to love watching Grey’s but for some reason got out of it last season. Right now pretty much the only show we watch is Orange is the New Black but I’ve heard great things about Scandal!

    • I’m sure you could jump back into Grey’s no problem, Scandal is pretty awesome too! I have never seen Orange is the new black but I’ve heard that it’s great!
