Beer, Blondies, and Bootcamp
Sorry I was MIA from the blog world yesterday. I was busy soaking up as much time with Chris as possible :). I want to thank everyone who linked up for FLOW on Friday! I’m absolutely loving the workouts you guys shared.
On Thursday, Chris and I went to the Samuel Adams brewery here in Boston and took one of the tours. It was so cool! The brewery was much smaller than I anticipated, but it was really neat to learn about the process, try several types of beer, and go through the tasting process!
These babies are gooey and dense and all around amazing! I followed Gracie’s recipe exactly, and added in the optional white chocolate chips. As much as I love chocolate, this might be my new favorite dessert- they were that good! I’m sorry I don’t have more pics for you…I got way too distracted by their deliciousness hehe. Check out the recipe post for some mouth-watering images!
After getting my stitch out on Friday (yay!!) I went directly to the gym and completed my bootcamp workout from Tina. Man it was challenging! But I loved every minute of it and it was really nice to be working hard again. Courtney wrote a great post about functional training that was inspired by this particular bootcamp workout. If you haven’t yet I highly suggest reading it!
There were two moves in the workout that I’ve done in the past (as in I’m pretty sure I did them in gym class back in elementary school haha) and never thought about doing them for part of a workout. I now know that bear crawls and crab walks are no joke. They are really challenging!
I’m so happy that I signed up for this bootcamp! I know that I’m going to repeatedly be challenged in new ways and I love that :D.
Anyway, Chris left early this morning. It was incredible having him here 5 days and we had such a good time. I’m actually flying home to Columbus early this afternoon. I’m completing some fieldwork there this week and then on Friday I’m flying down to Florida to spend my spring break with Chris! I cannot wait to be in the warm weather and to spend 8 days with my man.
I hope you all have a great Sunday!
