Happy Belated Halloween everyone!
I hope your night was safe and fun! Halloween is one of my favourite events of the year, but I totally lack the creative gene so I find the whole figuring out a costume part of Halloween stressful, yet I love seeing how creative other people are. I can totally appreciate how much thought and work go into their costumes. That said, my kids somehow got the creative gene that I lack. For our pumpkin this year they decided to make it as “fancy” as they could:
And last year the theme was classic Halloween. This year the theme was Circus Freak Show. Christine and her fiancée Steve rented a tent and did their backyard up with lights like a circus tent. It was awesome! Christine made herself an amazing contortionist costume:
My hubby also lacks the creative costume gene and like me isn’t much of a fan of dressing up, so we went with a much “tamer” costume idea…. He was an animal tamer and I was his tiger:
This weekend was doubly busy because besides our usual hockey, and the added stress of Halloween, it was also my youngest daughter Amber’s 5th birthday. 5 years ago I was a big ol’ round pumpkin for Halloween, and two days later Amber was born. I remember rushing to the hospital 30 minutes away in labour with my midwives in hot pursuit after us. 67 minutes after my labour started Amber was born! I remember waddling into the hospital and telling my husband and my midwives that I was ready to push. This wasn’t my first rodeo so they thankfully believed me and rushed me to a bed.
5 years sure flies by!!!
Last week I shared with you my November goals, so with those in mind here is this week’s workout plan:
Tuesday: 8k run before work, runner’s plyometrics after work (I was so sore after doing this workout last week)
Thursday: 8k run before work, runner’s plyometrics after work
Saturday: Bike + Runner’s kettlebell workout
Sunday: Amber’s birthday party – no workout.
What’s on your workout plan this week? Did you have a fun Halloween?
