I passed my BodyPump video! This was the last step in the (long, drawn out) certification process.
Now to get to better coaching, less counting, and deeper squats!
The best pancakes that I’ve ever made. From scratch. I didn’t have but a bite; this is my husband’s opinion.
Oven bacon and scrambled eggs to go with the pancakes. (Just for the record-I don’t like breakfast, so I cooked this for my husband and SIL who was visiting. I ate a bagel with cream cheese and a Greek yogurt.)
For dinner we had some type of red meat. I don’t know. But whenever I buy it (when the good cuts are on sale) I prepare it the same way: heat a cast iron skillet with a little bacon fat in it, season each side of the room temp meat with s&p, sear on each side, put in preheated broiler for a hot minute, let rest. Always comes out perfect. We also made rotated Bojangles cauliflower. Delicious. Not much to complain about with roasted veggies, evoo, and sodium.
But. My piece de resistance was that I made Thomas Keller’s roasted chicken. It’s a super easy recipe, but it’s so freaking incredible. (Of course I tasted some to make sure it was suitable.) the skin is soooo crispy and the meat is sooo juicy. Really phenomenal. Worth the fact that it smoked up our house haha.
So now I’m ready for some meals during the week since I’m feeling better than last week and do some more pump classes.
Yay for productive weekends!!
I called my friend thinking that she was 3 blocks away, but she was in Oregon and that was seriously devastating.

deep thoughts. I was just thinking about how I like a lot of tory burch bags, but I won’t buy them because that’s a lot of money on a bag without a zipper. Not that I use my zipper a lot, but I like knowing it’s there.
In news that nobody cares about, there’s a BuzzFeed article about a giant waterslide that someone over in the UK installed in their backyard.
The name of the town is my [former] middle name!
(My husband and I are, like, the most anglo people in the world…3/4ths from England/Wales and 1/4 from Germany. It’s basically the least unique combo ever.)
