The Day After Christmas...

was just as event-filled, gift-filled, family-filled day as the past two!

My mom and I ran out to grab some things (which I can't exactly reveal since my siblings read - I don't want to spoil gifts). We left early in the morning- My grab and go breakfast was a slice of my pumpkin carrot bread ( sooo delicious) with natural peanut butter, half a banana, a cottage cheese single and a piece of cranberry meringue. (unpictured black coffee)

which was SO much fun! We got back much later than expected and were hungry for lunch as soon as we got in...

Lunch: Egg whites with leftover stuffing, green beans, and a little provolone...

After lunch, Jeff and I went to the dealerships in town to test drive a couple trucks he is considering. After test-driving, we met up with my mom at her gym. My brother got in around dinner time, then it was more present exchanging!

Circuit Training with Jeff... Strength: shoulders ( sooo tough, press and extensions combo) (with jumping jacks), chest (dumbell press) ( with roman chair lifts), biceps ( curls) ( with side to side bends), leg presses. Cardio: Treadmill and Elliptical 20 minutes.

oh my the shopping deals, the truck test driving and number crunching, I typed up my christmas day post and I had to help bake a cake for my dad's birthday.

I love getting to see my family, and working out with jeff is so fun when do the circuits when we lift one muscle group, the other person does a cardio type thing (i.e jumping jacks). I think we help each other stay strong and finish out.

I helped pick out part of my sister's present and both of my brother's girlfriends' presents- If you ladies read, I hope you like them as much as I did!!

Lasagna- mmm one of my most favorite things my mom makes
Salad ( Jeff made it out of bell peppers, tomato, and mixed greens - all organic)- IT was GREAT!
