I will also be posting a pre thanksgiving bootcamp workout for anyone looking to get in a good sweat before the big day of indulging and socializing with fam/ friends. This workout will be mimicking a bootcamp style class with me instructing a few ladies {and you guys} with fun upbeat jams in the back and motivating/ pushing you to complete one more burpee! This will be a circuit style class and will be posted on the blog at 6am Thanksgiving day. It will also be on Facebook and Instagram. So grab those weights and head to an open space in your house or your local gym and press play!

Ok now that i’ve updated you all on BL weekly happenings lets get straight to this delicious sweet potato recipe. Mashed sweet potatoes are my first and biggest thing that takes up my plate on Thanksgiving day so I knew I had to do a post on it but I wanted to switch it up a bit giving this post a twist with the sliced sweet potatoes instead of mashed, and the maple bourbon drizzle. So gooey and delicious your guests will most definitely come back for seconds and even thirds so make more than you would think!
