Good morning! I didn’t mean to not post for four days but then I got distracted by grandmothers and goldens.
I came down to Florida to spend a long weekend with my family for Mother’s Day. It’s been a great visit and I’ll be heading back to Charlotte later this evening.
In the meantime, I’ll enjoy this view for a little while longer. I need to catch up on some work this morning and then I’ll squeeze in a quick workout and a few more hours on the beach before my flight.
Before I dive into last week’s workouts…big news for my fellow fitness instructors and yoga teachers! Lululemon has updated their R&D program and it’s now called “The Sweat Collective.” The new program includes a bigger discount – 25% off all full-priced merch – in addition to the ability to shop not only in-store but online too! WOO! This is a huge improvement!
If you’re a current R&D member, watch your email for details on how to sign-up for the new program. If you are not a current R&D member, look out for news from Lululemon in the coming months on how to apply for the program.
Here’s what my workouts looked like last week…
Monday: teach Y2 Strength + hot yoga
Tuesday: teach Y2 Strength + hot yoga
Wednesday: teach Y2 Strength + hot yoga
Thursday: teach Y2 Strength + hot yoga
Friday: hot yoga
Saturday: 4 mile run
Sunday: hot yoga
They were a tad bit repetitive due to the launch of our new strength program at Y2 + my participation in our 30-day challenge but the combo of teaching the strength classes along with a hot practice has been a good and challenging one. I am definitely missing the running piece of my workouts (like missing it I want to do it, not just that it’s “missing”) but I’ll figure out how to work it back in soon.
Check out the dumbbell workout I taught for Y2 Strength on Monday and Tuesday in this post.
Your Weekly Workout Jams
I feel like I spent SO much time putting together playlists for my classes so after a hiatus last week on putting together one for the blog, I’m back! Here’s your 60-minute playlist to get you though this week’s workouts and runs!
And here is the clickable link to Spotify.
This Week’s Dinner Menu
Monday: Tanner says he’s cooking dinner for me tonight since my flight doesn’t get in until 7p 😉
Tuesday: slow cooker salsa chicken over cauliflower rice. My Tuesday is crazy jam-packed and I know this simple dinner that I can throw in the slow cooker ahead of time will be the best option for my sanity!
Wednesday: slow-roasted salmon with fennel, citrus and chiles, I will probably serve this with rice or couscous
Thursday: sweet potato tofu noodle bowl (This is a do-over from last week because it was SO good! I’m going to photograph it so I can share the recipe with you guys!)
Saturday: out for a friend’s birthday dinner
Sunday: I’d like to get the grill set up and going for the season and do a grilled dinner. We’ll see what that looks like!
I hope that your Monday is the best start to the week ahead!
