Monday: A week in review

Hi all!

I've been so crazy busy with work and tutoring I literally have had no time to post. I have however made time for exercise! Yay! Here is my week of exercise reviewed for you...

Mon- Spin Class
Tues-AM Weights (Arms), PM Spin Class
Wed- 1 hour walk
Thurs-Off day, had to get dental work done and my jaw was super sore all day :(
Fri- Spin class, 20 min treadmill intervals
Sat- Full body weights
Sun-10 mins recumbent bike, 45 min sprint/jog intervals on treadmill

A couple of pictures from my beautiful fall walk:
Jack- Can you believe he's 11?

Horses in the field- I just love where I live!

I'm feeling pretty good about the amount of exercise I'm getting in. All of a sudden I'm obsessed with spin class- absolutely loving it! They just added another one at Wednesday at 6:30am at my gym, and the fact that I'm willing to drag my butt out of bed for that is saying something!
It feels strange to workout without a race to be training for, but right now I am kind of enjoying working out without a schedule.

In other news, it snowed here again! We actually have snow stuck to the ground now. If it doesn't melt in the next 2 days, I'm moving to Mexico permanently ( I will be there in 64 days regardless!)

I'm going to finish this post of with a very Halloweeny picture that I took of my mom's cat Sid a few days ago... enjoy!
He was mid yawn, I promise I wasn't terrorizing the cat!

Hi guys! Welcome to WIAW #7. This month is all about spooky snacks and healthy Halloween treats! Thanks again to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting!

Edited to add: I don't know whats up with the size of the font under the last three pictures! I played with it for 20 mins and couldn't change it without the pictures changing places, so please bear with me :)

 Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats

 Here are my eats from today:

My current breakfast obsession- oatmeal with a chopped up apple, cinnamon, a splash of milk and a tiny bit of maple syrup. It's what I'm getting up for in the mornings lately!

Random lunch today- Small baked potato with light sour cream and green onions, and a taco salad with spring mix, veggie taco meat, corn and a few crushed tortilla chips- delish!
Snack time- I've been making an effort to get two full dairy servings in per day... what better way to have a glass of milk than to pair it with a black bean brownie (recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie). Sounds kind of gross, but oh my goodness! So yummy!!!

Dinner- Amy's Organic Cheese Pizza aaand....
...Veggies with hummus!

I didn't finish my celery so I ate it for dessert with some peanut butter!

Today all of my food pics were taken in the same place.. I didn't get called in to work today so other than tutoring for an hour I got to spend my day at home. It was much needed due to the intense spin class I took last night. Wowza, did it ever kick my butt! It's been a long time since I've been sore from spin, but I was definitely hurting today. We had a new instructor last night, and she's totally hardcore. I'm pretty sure even my eyeballs were sweating, although it could have been tears from how much my legs were burning!!

On the workout schedule tomorrow is an easy 5-8km run, and a spin class! I love the instructor that does the Thursday spin so I'm really looking forward to it!

Also, I'm totally behind on updating my pics from the October Photo a Day Challenge. Tomorrow I promise to get an update ready for you :)
