Happy, happy, happy Friday! Although I can’t believe it’s already Friday! When I travel on the weekends and then jump back into a busy week, time seems to fly. I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend in Charlotte so that I can catch up and get organized. Two things that I pretty much feel like I spend my life trying to do. One day I’ll become more organized and efficient…hopefully. 🙂
I’m so glad that you enjoyed (well, kind of enjoyed…I guess that debatable if you actually did it!) the workout that I posted yesterday. I promise to post more fitness and workout related posts. It’s so easy to shoot a quick video now that I spend so much time in the gym working. I have to admit that I haven’t done the workout that I posted yet but I did get my booty kicked in BodyPump last night. I taught BodyPump 81 for the first time and although I don’t think it tops 80, it is a solid release. I found biceps and shoulders to be especially challenging.
I took a hot vinyasa class this morning before work and I’m going to end my day with the Friday evening CrossFit class. Everyone who has done the WOD so far today has been a sweaty mess at the end. I can’t wait! If you want to follow our WODs, our CrossFit director posts them on our blog every day!
The workouts have been tough and the eating has been really good…just how I like it.
I have had zero time to make it to the grocery store this week so meals have been assembled using whatever is available in the fridge/freezer/pantry. Yesterday’s lunch was creative but delicious. Two scrambled eggs, broccoli, spinach, black beans, goat cheddar and lots of salsa.
I finally made a quick grocery store stop after BodyPump last night. I was in the mood for a salad and had no lettuce and had been out of avocado all week. Major withdrawal! I made a really tasty salad with arugula mix, roma tomatoes, goat cheese, carrots, toasted pecans, dried cranberries, avocado and a turkey burger. I made a homemade dressing by whisking together lemon juice, dijon mustard, olive oil and honey.
Post-yoga breakfast this morning was banana and peach oatmeal. Unfortunately, I literally ate this in about 4 minutes flat when I arrived at work before teaching a yoga class. Friday mornings are rushed trying to get my own practice in before I have to teach.
I ran home around noon to pick this one up. I like to bring her into the office with me on Friday afternoons when things are quiet. She loves to hang out in my office and look out the windows.
I had lunch at Mellow Mushroom today. It’s located on the floor directly under the gym but this was my first time eating there since I started. Crazy because I love pizza and it always smells so good! It was a beautiful day to sit on the patio. Started by splitting a Lil’ Greek Salad.
And then a Philosopher’s Pie but we subbed tomato sauce for the olive oil/garlic base and chicken for the steak. Other toppings included artichoke hearts, feta, olives, mushrooms and provolone cheese. So very good but I’m glad I have several hours to digest it before CrossFit tonight!
Have a great weekend! Have anything fun planned? Anyone running a race?
