Cardio, Birthdays & Sunday Football


This weekend was pretty packed for our family….. minus Friday night.


We got take out and watched State of Affairs so it was pretty relaxing. My mom turned me onto the show. It is kinda like Homeland and Scandal combined so if you like those shows you should definitely check it out. Throw some Katherine Heigl in the mix and I am all in.

If I wasn’t tired I am sure we would have watched a couple more episodes.

Saturday I woke up early with Ava and let Marc snooze a bit more. I made us a similar breakfast to last weekend. Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes and Omelets with spinach. YUM!


I headed to the YMCA a little before 11am to attend the launch of our new program GROUP RIDE. Talk about sweat, fun, and butt kicking it was great. I don’t do a ton of cardio besides my boot camp workouts so this was refreshing and I was happy to get in some extra cardio while supporting my co-workers.


After the workout we got some amazing samples from Green & Tonic which is an awesome health food store in Greenwich. I am all for healthy smoothies & snacks especially free ones ;)

I quickly got home showered & changed so we could head to our first kids party of the weekend. It was a 1st Birthday party and Ava enjoyed every second.


She got to play with kids her age while we hung out with our college friends for a few hours.


It was a great first Birthday Party.

Sunday started off slow, the roads were super icy and there were weather alerts not to travel because of black ice. We didn’t rush out of the house at all which was nice, so I did some food prep and started to make some dinner for the Patriots game. Shortly after I decided I wanted to do more cardio. I did a Quick Cardio Circuit at home.


Check out that MAX Heart Rate…. 191!! Clearly I was working hard. I will share my workout with you this week. I was dripping sweat but loved it. As much as I enjoyed doing the spin class on Saturday… I would much rather be jumping around and doing fast paced cardio (burpees, pushups, X-jumps, etc.) I know I’m weird!

Around 2pm I headed to our second birthday party of the weekend. Unfortunately Ava didn’t make this party, she was a little under the weather so Marc stayed home with her.

We headed home around 4… I finished prepping some food and then watched the Patriots game. THEY ARE HEADED TO THE SUPERBOWL and we couldn’t be more excited :) WOOHOO

Have you ever done a choreographed spin class?

What was a highlight from your weekend?

  1. A choreographed spin class sounds like fun! I love spin but only do it once a week if that. I have to limit my cardio as I can overdo it so a little spin here and there works for me. The rest of the time, like you, I enjoy burpees, jacks etc. Not weird at all :-)

    • The spin class was great because I never get the opportunity to do pure cardio like that. It was fun!

      I limit my cardio too, I am glad to hear I’m not the only crazy one that likes burpees ;)

  2. State of Affairs sounds great! I never heard of it but I love Scandal. Can’t wait to hear about that workout! I actually haven’t taken a spin class in years! that needs to change, fast!

    • You should definitely check out State of Affairs if you love scandal!! :) I just posted the workout, it is intense but only about 30 minutes!
