How has your week been treating you? Are you taking some time off? I worked my usual schedule but have Friday (obviously) off. I also got to work from home Wednesday & Today vs. going into the office.
On holiday weeks, do you guys stick to your normal workout schedule? I try to as much as possible. This week I actually ended up doing a little more because I had some additional classes at the gym I was subbing:
Monday: Taught 5:45 AM Body Pump and 4:30 PM Body Pump (got to the gym a little early for each so I ended up running/walking around 4 miles on the treadmill too)
Tuesday: Taught Body Attack
Wednesday: Taught 5:45 AM Body Pump and 6:00 PM Body Pump (little treadmill action again beforehand)
Thursday: Went to the gym with Josh and did up 6 miles on the treadmill
Saturday: Teach Body Step
Are you guys doing any of the holiday cooking or did you make any foodie gifts? I put together a little foodie package for my parents consisting of two different kinds of granola:
A pumpkin walnut loaf:
Doggie Cookies (for their lab):
And a specialty dipping olive oil & pistachios:
I also made up three different kinds of hummus to eat as an appetizer on Christmas. To get started, I prepared some dried chickpeas:
Then I made up Caroline’s Artichoke Hummus:
and a Black Bean Hummus, that ended up as more of a puree:
All together now:
All will be served with fresh veggies and pita chips. And tomorrow, I will be making up a cauliflower and broccoli bake.
And for some laughs- a hilarious video. Merry Almost Christmas !!!!
yummy!! Everything looks sooo fantastic!! mmmm... I love those little flower bowls!!
I'm serving hummus tonight too, if people like it or not! ;)
A Brock and Cauli bake...YUM

Have a very Merry Christmas!!! :)
I haven't made any edible gifts, but I really should - I definitely enjoy those most. I'm sure your parents will love theirs - looks delicious.
I don't really have a set workout schedule right now, but I have worked out a couple times this week and plan to tomorrow and Saturday.
Have a wonderful Christmas!

I love, love, love hummus. I have made eggplant hummus. I would love to try the three you made. Cool serving dish!
Everything looks great! Especially the pumpkin walnut loaf and artichoke hummus. I love artichokes!

I've been dying to make Caroline's Artichoke hummus forever. In fact, all her hummuses are on my "to-make" list.
Everything looked wonderful. Hope you had a great Christmas Erica!!!!

Food gifts are the best! And three kinds of hummus?! Yum!
I TRY to keep my normal workout schedule, but we haven't had very good weather and the gym was closed for the holidays :-( Good for you for keeping it up!
Hope you had a great holiday :-)
I love your foodie gifts! This year was the first time I gave foodie gifts, I bought some spice jars and gave away homemade mixes of rosemary salt and bbq spice rub. I want to make all of your hummuses!! (is that a word?)
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!
I try to take Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off for sure. I just try to focus on the time with my family. Otherwise I still try to keep the workouts up as normal. This year, I'm not doing such a good job though. Hectic holiday, but likely because it has been our first one after officially being back in the US so everyone wants to see us. :)
Your hummus looks great. I'd love all those flavors. So glad you made the cookies and that Frank enjoyed them. Poor Macy's been sick over Christmas. Hoping her meds kick in soon though and she's back to herself. Have a great week!
MERRY BELATED CHRISTMAS! i hope you had a wonderful weekend eating and spending time with loved ones. lots of love to you!!!!
Doggie cookies!! I love it! My aunt makes cookies for my dogs - us dog owners are weird ;) For example my cousins didn't send US a Christmas card. My cousin's dogs sent our dogs a card!
These all look so tasty, great blog you have here :-)
I will def. be back!
