Happy Friday! It’s been such a great week at work. Busy but in a very good way with lots of exciting things in the works. I’m spending my Friday evening working the front desk at Metro for the first time and I’m actually having so much fun with it. While I do get to teach classes and train clients as part of my job, I also spend a lot of time doing office work. It’s been great to be out on the floor tonight and chatting with the members. I’ve also been whipping up protein shakes, washing towels and praying that I am operating the computer system correctly! 😉
I’m happy to see the arrival of the weekend. I have a list a mile long of things I want to get done around the house. Starting with small things like buying new dish towels, organizing and cleaning all the way to things like resurfacing the bathtub, painting and furniture upgrades. I am trying to just take it one thing at a time but I’m in that zone where I want it all done now!
Breakfast after my morning yoga practice was Barney Butter, honey, mashed banana and cinnamon on toast.
I had a fierce smoothie craving mid-morning (must be in withdrawal after all those green smoothies during the challenge!) so I went to Berrybrook because I love their smoothies. I chose the “Mean Green” which was banana, pineapple, papaya juice, spirulina and Kyo Green. A little bit of a different spin on the green smoothie but so delicious.
I went home for lunch and an afternoon break since I had to be back at the club until 8 p.m. I have been so into egg scrambles this week and I made the best one yet today. I sauteed spinach and cherry tomatoes together and then added black beans and a dash of chipotle powder before adding the egg and shredded goat cheddar. I topped it off with salsa and diced avocado. I decided to forgo a fork in favor of using my chips to scoop it up. I just opened a bag of Wholesome Goodness Multigrain & Flax tortilla chips that I was sent to sample and they are great! They held up well to the scooping.
Someone was being a bit of a grump this afternoon. Isn’t that such a sad doggy face? I cheered her up (and wore her out!) by taking her for a run. It is such a beautiful day in Charlotte. As I was running I thought to myself that the conditions were pretty much what I would consider perfect for running. Sullie thought so too. Lately, she’s been very unmotivated to run and that’s really unlike her. She was on her a-game today and happy to be out there.
I needed a snack to hold me over during my shift at work so I grabbed one of my homemade granola bars out of the freezer. That snack seems long ago now and my stomach is growling. I’m meeting some friends for wine after I get the gym closed and then it’s home to whip up dinner.
I wanted to share one last thing with you. I used to work at an ad agency when I lived in Birmingham and they have a great blog, The Social Path, that covers all topics social media related. Today’s post was about 5 Fun Fitness Apps. I actually don’t use any fitness related apps on my iPhone but I would love to try some. Do you have any favorites?
Have a great weekend!
