A Working Sunday

by Jen on November 13, 2011

Today was a “working Sunday” but it was all fun work so I can’t complain!

I knew I was in for a long day so I wanted to get a substantial breakfast in. I made a big pot of banana oatmeal and then poured it into the end of a Justin’s Maple Almond Butter jar. I haven’t been home to cook oatmeal for breakfast in weeks so I really enjoyed this.

After breakfast and last minute finalization of class plans + playlists, I headed to Y2 to teach the 9:15 hot class. I had to report to Fight Gone Mad to get set up for our second boot camp as soon class was over. I was in charge of programming today!

Enter running, wall walk ups and everything challenging I could think of. (What is your least favorite exercise to do? I’ll add it next time! Kidding…sort of. ;))

Walking lunges holding a 12 pound ball overhead? Perfect. :P

After boot camp, I grabbed a smoothie from Healthy Home Market to get me through my afternoon yoga practice (day 13!) and a late afternoon personal training client. I went with the Strawberry Shortcake and it was awesome. Not too sweet and very almond buttery.

When I finally arrived home around 6 I made a snack of edamame with kosher salt and got started on dinner.

We were feeling ethnic and decided on Chicken Tikka Masala. Served with jasmine rice and whole wheat naan.

I couldn’t sleep so I got up to make tea and work on this blog post. I need to try the sleep thing again because I have an early morning BodyPump class and training client tomorrow.

Do a lot of gyms in the US do really early morning classes? In the uk they tend to be 9-11 and then 6-9. I don’t know many gyms that do dead early or mid day classes. x

Burpees with a push up is my most hated exercise.

@Shenley, all of the gyms that I work at here in the US do early morning classes. Typically around 5 am and/or 6am (I teach 6am cycle on Tuesdays). People like to come to those so they can still have time to shower and get ready for work at 8am :) One gym I work at has lunch time classes because people will come and workout during their lunch break.
