I can’t believe Christmas is next week! One on hand, I’m excited! I love Christmas time. It’s my favorite time of year, handsdown. On the other hand, I’m dreading it. Christmas means my maternity leave is coming to an end and I have to go back to work. I have been leaving Maddie at daycare for half days a few days this week to “wean” myself off of her, but I’m still really anxious about being away from her all day.
Anyways, this week I’ve made sure to get in some good workouts since Christmas always brings yummy treats!
I’ve added weights back into my workouts and I have been SO sore! I’m a little weakling right now because I haven’t lifted in so long, but I’m looking forward to seeing progress (and being less sore)!
I’ve also been on Pinterest a lot more lately and I was inspired to try making my own fruit infused water! It looks so pretty so I thought I’d try it out with what I had on hand!
The first one is made with sliced apples, cinnamon sticks, and some cinnamon honey I got from Savannah Bee Company. I wasn’t sure how it would taste since I didn’t know how much the apples would flavor the water, but it’s surprisingly good! Very smooth with some sweetness and a hint of cinnamon. It’s also very festive!
The second one is made with pineapple, honeydew, honey, and a little lime juice. It is much sweeter than the apple cinnamon one but it’s really good! I can’t wait to try more flavor combinations! I really want to do something with cucumber, raspberry, and mint.
