And I’m back to a night update. Some of you have commented that you’ve missed seeing my updates when you check the blog in the morning. I know my blogging has been a little sporadic lately but like I mentioned in my December Updates post, I’m trying to figure out a balance that works for the blog. I like to blog at night but it takes my attention away from Brandon and Sullie…and one of my goals when I made the career transition was to treat the blog more like a “job” and get it done during the day. Hasn’t happened. Hang with me, please? I’ll figure this thing out.
I taught the 9:15 hot vinyasa at Y2 this morning and it was ahhhhhhmazing. Mainly because I had one of my favorite yogis back in class. Long story short, she has been recovering from major surgery to remove cancerous tumors from her body. I want her to share her story on the blog soon…she is willing to share it and so inspirational. Having her in class was a huge bright spot in my week!
Lunch today was an open-faced turkey sandwich with mango chutney, tomato and provolone on Dakota. Orange slices and cottage cheese on the side. I had a weird cottage cheese craving at the store this week.
Brandon and I spent the afternoon together and started with a coffee date at Starbucks.
We split a cranberry bliss bar and it should come as no surprise that I ordered a soy latte.
After I jacked myself up on coffee, we went to the Y to workout. Even though I train clients, I rarely go to the gym just to work out. I’m always practicing yoga, running or teaching BodyPump. I had so much fun putting myself through a workout tonight. Here is what I accomplished in about 40 minutes.
- 10 minute warm up on the AMT machine at resistance of 10.
- 10 jump squats, 10 bosu pushups, 10 triceps dips, 10 lunges with one leg on the bench (each side) – 3 times through
- 10 cable flies, 10 wide dead rows, 3 times through
- 10 resistance band bridges with feet on a step – 10 on both legs and then 10 on each leg, 2 times through
- 20 weighted jacknifes
- 20 weighted crunches
- 20 weighed oblique cruches
