I know I have been MIA but the combination of a busy work week and a special project (please pray it sees the light of day and I get to share it with you!) have kept me away from the blog.
Let me give you a quick download on what I’ve been doing.
First, the workouts.
Thursday…Interviewed a new CrossFit coach and did a WOD with her.
Hand Release Pushups
And taught BodyPump later that night. I usually NEVER do CrossFit on the same day that I teach BodyPump but had no choice yesterday.
Friday…hot yoga scaled way back. Some days I go all out, other days I kinda move slow and stretch.
Second, the eats.
Chobani is definitely a leading brand when it comes to social media and blogger outreach. I have felt so honored that they’ve reached out to me over the past couple of months about the holiday cooking event and new product samples. This is a brand that I love and buy all the time anyway so I’m happy to support them and I wholeheartedly recommend their products to everyone.
I taught BodyPump last night and had dinner plans after. Showering and getting ready away from home has become the norm for me. I think it’s safe to say at this point in my life that I’ve become an expert bag packer and I shower as much at the gym and yoga studio as I do at home. My friend Lauren gave me a turtleneck dress she wasn’t ever going to wear so I was excited to try it out for dinner. I love clothes swapping with friends.
Dinner out was sushi. So much delicious sushi. All of this plus plates of sashimi and nigiri. It’s so fun to eat sushi with big groups of people!
Breakfast this morning after training a client was my new banana Chobani (it’s awesome with big chunks of banana) along with pumpkin spice granola, bananas and peanut butter.
I had a lunch meeting and ordered a salad with spinach, chick peas, hard boiled eggs, mandrain oranges, artichokes and goat cheese with honey mustard. I also had a cup of roasted red pepper gouda soup that was really great.
And dinner tonight wasn’t really photo-worthy but exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately, all of the running around and long days this week have left me with the beginnings of a cold. No surprise there given all the junk that’s going around at the gym. I wanted really simple food to wrap up the week. Rotisserie herb chicken from whole foods with a five-grain blend and collards.
What’s your favorite Greek yogurt flavor? Plain is my #1 choice followed closely by Chobani Pineapple and Fage Cherry Pomegranate. Chobani Banana might be a new front runner though!
