A Working Mom’s BFF

Hey guys! How’s your week going so far? Last night, I bundled myself up and headed to Barre Bee Fit’s Barre Interval class. My cousin met me there and we had our butts
handed to us. This class had two cardio intervals sandwiched between a strength segment.

I almost died…but in a good way. I love being put through the ringer when it comes to a HIIT workout. Proof of a tough cardio session:

While I was bopping around WF’s on Sunday after drill, I came across a life-changing dish.  A pre-prepared slow cooker meal for 4.  They had an assortment to choose from.  I ended up going with the Verde Stew.

Verdict?  Not too bad.  It wasn’t out of this world, but it was good.  I felt like it was missing something but I couldn’t pinpoint what.  Everyone in our house ate it so I consider it a win.  I think if I go this route next time, I will try another variety.  I love my crockpot and plan on using it more now that it’s freezing cold here.  I have another crockpot meal planned for later this week.  I can’t begin to tell you how nice it is to have dinner all ready to eat after you’ve worked a 10 hour day.  I’m gone about 12 hours and when I come home I like to spend as much time with Madelyn as I can, so I don’t like to cook too many “Involved” meals during the week.  We like to keep things simple over here 🙂

I’m off to work on a Pinterest IRL project!  Don’t forget to enter the Erin Condren $25 giftcard giveaway!  It ends this Friday!
