As a music teacher, I am officially in “concert week”! Every year I end up getting take out for dinner this week and eating junk food. With concerts Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday I am trying to prep my lunch and dinner for the rest of the week! Thursday night I get to teach my double BODYPUMP/BODYFLOW classes so it is a late night too.
After school, I practiced BODYPUMP 96 at home with my SMARTBAR. It’s so heavy! I don’t teach with one at the gym so it feels extra tough at home.
(BODYPUMP 96 cool down track)
I might get to do a little BODYFLOW at home tomorrow, but I’m just betting on the next two days being “off” days. I need to remind myself that off days are okay!!!
Practice BODYFLOW 71 tomorrow? Did I mention I signed up for an AIM 2 in March!!!!!!! (Les Mills Advanced Instructor Module 2) I am going for BODYFLOW and I will be presenting 71. I can’t wait to launch this in January and practice!!
Tonight I made most of my extra food for the week. I made four turkey burgers, roasted brussel sprouts and roasted sweet potatoes. We ate this and have left overs for lunch.
I also made chicken meatballs and baked chicken breast topped with rosemary honey mustard and panko.
I also have the rest of my chopped sweet potatoes ready to go, broccoli and snap peas. Even though I didn’t get to it tonight, roasting them is easy and makes them taste oh so good! I might treat us to some easy stuffing or quinoa/brown rice later this week. I like to make my own quinoa, but this stuff is so easy for a busy week. Not saying Stove Top is healthy at all… but a little bit tastes really good for a busy week! The broccoli can be roasted on a baking sheet like the other veggies with just olive oil, salt and pepper. I usually just set the oven to 375-400 and flip half way.
The snap peas can be made into this chicken dish I found on Pinterest. It is so good and doesn’t take much time. If I have time this week, I might make this or save it for the weekend if we still have enough food. We take leftovers for lunch each day and we tend to eat a lot. 🙂

Just thought you needed a Colby and Bella pic 🙂 She is ready for Christmas break!
