Happy Cyber Monday!! Does anyone else think that Black Friday within stores has become a thing of the past? I was out on Friday just running some errands and it was no where near as psycho as it has been in the past. I think everyone is going the better route: snuggling up in the pajamas, while eating paleo pancakes, drinking mimosas and buying sh*t online. That’s exactly what I did. I didn’t leave the safety of my own home. Except to get my fitness on, of course. And eat a crap ton of Thanksgiving food.

How are you feeling post-Thanksgiving weekend? I had three Thanksgiving parties, two of which included food. Multiple helpings. But you know what I didn’t eat really any of this year? Desserts. I had a couple bites of my Chocolate Caramel Tart because I made that for a party then I had a little fudge square at another part, which was damn good. But that was it. No pie, no cake, no extra whip. I think this was the first year I had absolutely no pumpkin pie. Shame. I guess I’ll just have to make some of my Eggnog Pumpkin Pie to have around the house for the next week!

Ok back to the point: fitness, food, and Cyber Monday. Just FYI, if you’ve been waiting to grab my cookbook, Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook, there is truly no better time than the present. Right now, Amazon has a book promotion going on so you can get the book for additional 30% off, taking the book from $34.95 down to only $13.73! That’s over 60% off and by far the cheapest I’ve ever seen it. EVER! Use the discount code holiday30 or it may just apply to your order right away! Grab it before this deal is gone tomorrow and get to eating some of my best recipes ever! Now let’s get our fitness on!

10 minute partner AMRAP:

200m row and 10 burpees over your rower**

4 minute rest

10 minute partner AMRAP:

*1 partner works at a time, you must finish all reps before moving on to the next. So partner 1 will do 20 KBS then partner 2 will do 2o KBS then maybe 10 and 10, then they will move on to the hand release push ups. Once finish, go back to KBS then HRPU, until the 10 minutes is up.

**Partner 1 will do 200m row the 10 burpees over rower while partner rest. Continue switching until time is up..

20 calorie row – 20 clusters (squat clean into a thruster)

*One person works at a time and you can split it up however you’d like. It’s 100 reps together, not per person, just fyi. We finished in 32 minutes-something. I used 75# and my partner used 95#

Isn’t my partner the best?!

    Definitely want to try Tuesdays and Saturdays workout! I don’t think it is linked up there, but what size did you get in that gray north face jacket you posted last week. Not sure if it is available anymore, but I found a similar one and it says it runs small.

      i got a small and it still has wiggle room!

    I agree, Black Friday doesn’t seem as crazy. Who wants to do that when you can shop online? We started getting our dog food shipped from Amazon Prime and it’s literally one of the best decisions we did. Such a time and energy saver!
