Work It Off

For the holidays I enjoy making my clients do themed workouts.  A few days before Christmas we do a 12 days of Christmas workout.  Easter has alot of hopping exercises and, Thanksgiving is just a very heavy duty workout. This is the workout that my clients are doing tomorrrow.  I'm doing a variation of this workout tomrorow also.  

I always do some type of exercise on the holidays.  Christmas is often just a long walk since my gym isn't open and I don't want to risk waking people up by working out in the house.  

There are 3 ways to do this.  
1. Do 20 reps of each exercise, then repeat 3-5 times
2. Do 3 sets of 20 of one exercise before moving on to the next
3. Do 1 minute (or 2 or 3) of each exercise and then repeat

I have rounded up 6 great Thanksgiving themed workouts for you.

Photo Shoot

I rarely ever brag about my girls.  But, this one time I have to.  Back in September Sunny and Mo had headshots done with a local photographer.  They came back a few days ago and they are amazing.  A-MAZE-ING!  I just wanted to share them with you.

The photographer was Miguel Emmanuelli and his website is

Every month I say "I'm going to get my blog back on track." and every month I fail.  The past month was especially difficult to try and fit in a blog post.  The hurricane caused my entire community to flood, and my landlord kicked us out and gave us 2 weeks to find a place, pack and move.  But, with the holidays coming up I'm hoping that inspiration for posts will fill my brain and I can get back on track. 

Due to some unforeseen circumstances my eating has been really crazy.  So, most days atleast on of my meals consists of a Quest bar.  I have been slowly working my Way through the various flavors. 

 Strawberry Cheesecake --Actually quite good
Apple Pie  -- Didn't taste anything like apple pie but, it was good.
Mixed berry bliss  -- Very fruity. 
Coconut cashew -- Good.  Needed more coconut flavor.  And it was nice because the coconut didn't taste fake
Banana Nut Muffin -- Good.  And luckily the banana doesn't taste fake
PB&J -- Just okay.
Vanilla Almond Crunch
Lemon Cream Pie
Peanut Butter Supreme

 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough -- My favorite
Cookies and Cream -- Really good.  Love the chunks of chocolate cookies
S'mores -- Disappointing
Mint Chocolate Chunk -- Tastes like a thin mint
Double Chocolate Chunk -- Another favorite
White Chocolate Raspberry -- Lame.  No real flavor
Chocolate Brownie -- Pretty good but, falls short
Cinnamon Roll -- Boring
Chocolate Peanut Butter -- Another disappointment.  I took this trick or treating with me to curb my candy craving and it doesn't taste like chocolate or peanut butter!

Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip -- Good.  Not as good as the chocolate chip cookie dough though
Rocky Road -- Love it!

The blank ones are the ones I haven't been able to try yet.  For the most part I haven't found any that are disgusting.  Some fall short, and a bunch of them I will never buy again but, in general the Quest bars get a 4 out of 5 stars. 

Have you tried Quest bars before?  Comment below with your favorite flavor.
