Holiday Weekends

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed the holiday weekend. I am in love with holiday weekends. How often do we have 3 day work weeks and 4 day weekends? I think our society should make this the norm. Wouldn’t that be great? Work for 24 hours and be off the rest of the week? Hell  to the yeah.

What did you do this weekend? Where did you go? I stayed at home this weekend and spent Thanksgiving with the boyfriend’s family. It was wonderful! The next day we both put the Merry in Christmas. Our house is in the Christmas spirit, my friends, and I LOVE IT!

If you read this post from a couple weeks ago, you know I am doing the Elf for Health challenge this holiday season. In honor of the challenge, I thought I would give a little recap of my first week. Here it goes…

Monday… Go meatless day. I made a black bean with veggies type of dish. It wasn’t bad, but I tell you what was even better… reheating it the next day and mixing it into scrambled eggs. Yum!

Tuesday… Unsubscribe challenge. I found out about unroll.me and my life is forever changed. Seriously, if you get overwhelmed signing into your email every day, check this out. I now don’t have to worry about getting 100 advertisement emails in my inbox daily.

Wednesday… Try a new workout. I did a new yoga routine in the morning and added in a new Tone It Up routine in the afternoon. It was a good change of pace. I highly recommend Yoga with Adriene vids and Tone It Up vids. I subscribe to both YouTube channels fo sho!

Thursday… Share a book, blog, etc. I am reading Bossypants by Tina Fey right now. I love her. I want to be friends with her!

Friday… New veggie smoothie. I failed at this today, not going to lie. I intended to make a smoothie, but did not get to it. I just don’t look forward to anything cold these days.

Saturday… Treat yourself. Boy did I ever! I decorated for Christmas, took a nice nap, caught up on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and hung out at home with the boyfriend. I may have even made chocolate chip cookies… my favorite!

Sunday… Meal prep day. I baked some sweet potatoes ahead of time because you know I looooooove my baked potatoes. All I have to do is reheat, put a little bit of ghee on that sucker, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Y to the um!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead!

  • holiday weekends are the best! It sounds like you had a good one! I woke up today wishing it was a one day work week, too 😛

  • The veggie and bean dish looks good but it is such a bummer when it doesn’t come out as good as you hoped. Glad the eggs spruced it up a bit!
    I am so glad to hear about unsubscribe. I get all this stuff that I have no idea how I got subscribed to.
    ghee on sweet potatoes is something I have not tried and must add it to the list.

    • I had about 400 subscriptions.. it kinda made me laugh. I kept thinking there is no way I subscribed to 400 different stores/advertisements. I guess some places “buy” info if they can.

  • Hi! 😀 Assuming that I didn’t completely fail at life on matching numbers, you’re my match for the FitFabFuelSwap! I’m doing the Elf 4 Health challenge as well! Just wanted to say hello. :]! Baked sweet potatoes are definitely an awesome meal prep idea! I need to get to the grocery store this weekend to buy some.

    • Hi Farrah! I meant to reach out to you as well so I am glad you messaged me here. Very cool that you are doing the Elf 4 Health Challenge too. I’ll head on over to your blog and add you on social media. We can swap email addresses too- mine is BriTexas@gmail.com.
