NYC By the Numbers + Weekly Workouts

It’s been quiet over here for the last three days because NYC has taken all of my attention. We haven’t stopped moving since we landed on Friday. We have eaten, walked and sight seen our way around this city and I can’t wait to share our trip with you. I’ll get to that when we get home but for now here’s a quick look at “NYC by the numbers” for Sunday + weekly workouts.

Hot yoga

    I LOVE Barry’s Bootcamp. I attended a class when I was in San Francisco and thought it was a fantastic workout. I wish we had a Barry’s where I live!

      Ditto! It was so good!

    Sooo insanely jealous, Jen! New York is on the tippy top of my travel bucket list. I can’t wait to read your recap post and live vicariously through you! 🙂

    • Jen August 3, 2015, 10:29 pm

      It’ll be up soon!! Maybe on multiple posts because there’s SO much to cover!

    Can’t wait to hear how much fun you had! It’s been hot here but still a great city to explore 🙂

    • Jen August 3, 2015, 11:42 am

      It was hot but no where near what we’ve had in CLT so it was nice for us!

    Looks like SUCH an amazing visit!! Love that you tracked your steps! I have always wanted to track my steps for a big walking trip like that….impressive 🙂

    • Jen August 3, 2015, 10:31 pm

      Our iPhones did it automatically on the health app!

  • Emily @ My Healthyish Life August 3, 2015, 8:06 am

    By the looks of your pictures on Instagram you seem to be having an awesome time!!! So happy for you (and jealous- I miss it already!). I used to look at my steps at the end of every day in the city and would go to bed with an added sense of satisfaction for walking so much.

    • Jen August 3, 2015, 10:32 pm

      We used it to justify all the sweets that we just had to try! I think we ended up around 45 miles by the end of the trip

    I love to walk in a new big city! Makes room for all the goodies you eat!

    I hope those cookie stats included a trip (or multiple trips) to Levain Bakery! http://www.levainbakery.com/

    • Jen August 3, 2015, 11:41 am

      Yes! We visited yesterday and I bought 8 to take home. They’re with me on the plane! 🙂

  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine August 3, 2015, 10:50 am

    Walking is totally the point of being in a city! You can get up close and personal with things you normally wouldn’t! Of course subway/metro rides are an experience must too!

    • Jen August 3, 2015, 11:42 am

      Yes, an “experience” is definitely the best way to say it. Saw a little bit of everything.

    Love walking and running around new cities! It is so much more fun…So awesome that someone recognized you. It happened to me during a half marathon and I will never forget it. How good was that NYC pizza? Nom Nom!

    • Jen August 3, 2015, 11:41 am

      The pizza was to DIE for!

  • Cassie August 3, 2015, 1:31 pm

    Big cities are my favorite!! New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, you name it!! International cities such as Rome, Paris, London and Barcelona are gorgeous too!

    • Jen August 3, 2015, 10:37 pm
