SAS, Run & Eat.

This morning I got to sleep in for a bit before getting the kids up and ready for the day. While I was waiting for them to stir I thought about  reading my book, and ended up scrolling instagram for 20 minutes before one of the twins got up.. Social media.. love to hate it sometimes.. I used to be so good at reading books and now, I get distracted to much to actually get into a book.

Breakfast was quick and we were all out the door and to GPP for the 9:30 class.

Todays workout included SAS. Not to be mistaken with swass.. HA! SAS is just the acronym for Single arm Snatch. I love snatches, we sometimes use dumbbells' or kettle bells. Today we used a BAR.

Honestly, I was really nervous about it at first, but after the first one I decided it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I surprised myself and was able to snatch #65 pounds. I could only do #65 in singles so I dropped to #55 to do 5 consecutively.

I’m feelin’ it already!

I also headed to the gym for a run! I am starting to schedule more runs into my week, I can’t hide from the cold forever, but today it was 14 degrees so I went into the cardio cinema to see if it would help fight the treadmill boredom.

I loved the movie Miss  Congeniality and it made the run go by so fast! I finished 5 miles in about 43 minutes.

Tonight was Brents Company Party so we got a babysitter and headed to the Lion House in SLC to meet everyone for dinner.

They brought out Salad and rolls, but I was chatting and didn’t snag a pic, the dinner was done buffet style. It was all so good! I haven’t had salmon for awhile and it hit the spot!


There was two choices for dessert: Cranberry Orange cheesecake and White Chocolate Raspberry mousse.

I had the mousse, but I kind of just ate the raspberries off the top of it…


It was like eating straight frosting.. so meh. I wasn’t a fan of it. But some people thought it made a great topping to the cheesecake. Ha!

We all brought a white elephant gift and played a fun game, passing and choosing each gift. I scored a pretty cool key finder by totes.  You whistle and it sets an alarm off. It then became a fun game to just randomly whistle during the party to set the alarm off.


Another Bement and Company Christmas party in the books!


What is the best white elephant gift you have ever given or received?
