Productive Weekend Recap


Good morning!!

Wasn’t it nice to see the sun shining this weekend??? All I wanted to do was be outside and it got me so excited for our family trip to Florida this Friday. I am overly excited for some sunshine!

Well lets back up a bit so I can recap my productive weekend for you. Friday I passed my CPR for the Professional Rescuer & First Aid course. We had our hands on CPR training using dummies and the time flew by.


In the afternoon I had time to practice our Group Power workout that I will be launching today at 730am! Shortly after I practiced, I whipped up a quick Upside down Shepherd’s Pie for dinner.


The picture looks kinda messy but let me tell you this meal tasted AMAZING. We typically don’t cook on Friday nights but this was a nice change:)

The rest of our evening was pretty low key because Marc and I were both exhausted and feeling a little under the weather.

Saturday morning I woke up and I still wasn’t feeling great. I had a little sore throat and cough, but I felt short of breath. I have had sinus infections plenty of times before and this kinda felt like another one coming so I took some Mucinex and kept drinking airborne and lots of fluid.

At around 830am my friends came over and we headed to Greenwich Avenue to grab coffee at Starbucks together and go for a walk with our kids. It was such a nice idea, and a great morning to be outside! We took advantage of the 50 degree weather.

Ava had fun playing around and letting her friend chase her.

I think my friends and I enjoyed hanging out and chatting all morning :)


In the afternoon I headed back to the Avenue to Lululemon because I was doing a demo Bosu Ball class in the store window!


It was fun and man was I exhausted at the end of the hour.


Can you see me in the window? I didn’t count how many pushups, quick feet, side shuffles, mountain climbers, squats & lunges that I did, but my butt was sore on Sunday!!!!

The rest of Saturday was spent outside at the dog park and hanging out on our porch until my family came over for dinner. It was another relaxing evening over here!!

Sunday morning I headed to the YMCA to support my co-worker as she taught her first class of the new Group Power APRIL release.


It’s so fun to take a class that you normally teach. It was actually easier for me to do the workout since I wasn’t yelling and instructing and you only have to focus on the exercises!


The last part of my weekend was spent at my cousins son’s Christening at Pelicci’s Restaurant in Stamford, CT.

I wasn’t feeling great and Ava was tired so we ended up heading home a little earlier to get some rest.

So this weekend was jam packed with tons of different stuff going on but it was fun!! Now I get to go workout and teach the New Group Power workout. I’m not gonna lie, I’m nervous and I hope I don’t mess up ;)

What did you do this weekend?

Do you ever get nervous before you teach?
