Body Pump and Baby Bump!

Well, my intentions of having a fully relaxing day got a bit interrupted when we found out about an early morning house showing at 9am.  Instead of sleeping in, making a peaceful Sunday Morning Breakfast, and browsing casually through the morning paper while sipping on fresh brewed coffee as we do on most Sundays, Toly and I were both up early, cleaning the house, getting the puppies situated and making scare for a few hours while strangers toured our home.  Oh the joys of selling your home people! 

Anyways, since I needed to be out, I decided to check out one of the local gyms and signed up for an early morning Body Pump Class. Before my workout, I managed to gobbled down a quick bite to eat. 

Cinnamon Raisin Ezikle Bread with Almond Butter and 1/2 Sliced Peach with Flax

Blueberry Oikos with diced Kiwi, Blueberries, and Granola Sprinkle 

Long awaited Iced Coffee! 

By 9am, I was out the door and ready to workout. 

Pink shoes and all! 

I really liked this gym.  I've been checking out some local gyms because when we move, I will no longer be able to use our gym in the development, so joining a gym is in my future.  The one thing I am extremely looking forward to is being able to take more classes.  

I LOVE classes and Body Pump was great this morning! 

When I got back from the gym, I showered and became extremely hungry.  Lunch couldn't wait any longer. 

Arugula, Spinach, Cucumber, Squash, Tomato, White Beans, Peas, Goat Cheese in Balsamic 

With my salad, I also roasted a small sweet potato and enjoyed the little rounds dipped into ketchup.  Quite satisfying and delicious! After a week of not reaching my veggie quota, it feels so good to be consuming plants again! 

After lunch, my sister stopped by for a visit. 

 It's been so long since I've seen her and I can't believe how much my nephew has grown!! 

In less than a month, we will have another baby around!  Not sure the "boys" are going to like the averted attention, but they will just have to deal. 

Tonight is going to be very special because Toly and I are celebrating our 2 year anniversary.  Our actual anniversary is not until tomorrow, but we decided to celebrate it tonight so that we could have more time to enjoy it together.  Last year, we cooked dinner together and we have decided to continue this tradition again.  We are even making the same dinner, homemade pizza!  There is something about making pizza together that is so romantic.  We have a bottle of wine chilling, the dough is rising, and plan to enjoy our dinner on a blanket on the floor, hopefully watching a classic romantic film. (Hmm, Serendipity perhaps?) It is going to be just perfect if you ask me! :)
