Hey, hey. It’s a rainy, cold day in Charlotte which makes for lots of productivity on my end.
Our weather has been truly bizarre lately. On Thursday it was 75 degrees and I was running in shorts and a tank top. Sunday we woke up to snow. Today is rainy and chilly. I feel like this is the story of March in general. You think that spring is on the way but winter wants one last chance first. This upcoming week is supposed to be one of our coldest yet of the winter.
Rewinding to share a few weekend pictures before a workout recap and your workout playlist for the week. Let me just start by saying that I’m sure no one is going to be envious of the weekend we had.
On Friday night we were at the studio until midnight painting. You might remember that we painted the downstairs heated studios a few months ago but we had a ton more painting to do. Now that we’ve been in our new space for two years, many areas were in need of refreshing and we wanted to add color in others. We assembled a crew of about 20 volunteers (thank god) and divided and conquered to paint the men’s and women’s locker rooms, a hallway, some walls in our retail area, walls leading up the stairs, the spa reception area and our upstairs non-heated studio.
We are bringing in professionals for some of the more technical painting jobs but it just wasn’t in the budget for the whole project. It was a long night but we were so, so grateful for the help from our staff and some of our teacher trainees. There were many pieces of pizza eaten, glasses of wine drunk, messes made and laughs had. I ate a sushi roll, a slice of cheese pizza and some chocolate cake. To say that I didn’t feel amazing the next morning would be an understatement. 😛
We both taught on Saturday morning before coming home to start packing. The pups were NOT thrilled about the boxes and the mess…at all. Zoey spent most of the day on top of this stack of broken down boxes with her bone.
And we found Sullie on the couch.
On Sunday we woke up to a dusting of snow!
I doubled my paleo banana bread recipe and baked a loaf of bread + 8 muffins. I’m hooked on this recipe again right now if you can’t tell.
Breakfast was eggs, bacon, banana bread, fruit and coffee.
The girls played in the snow before it melted.
It was gone as quickly as it came. Most of the snow was melted by early afternoon.
I was feeling so tired and lethargic on Sunday afternoon but I knew a workout would turn my day around. I headed over to FlyWheel to take Shane’s FlyBeats class. It was AMAZING and I felt like a new woman after class. Shane is an awesome teacher. The playlist was on point and I loved the energy in the FlyBeats class.
I came home and took the girls for a walk and then taught yoga and ran to the grocery store before ending the evening packing again. We’re making good progress. So excited for this move! (And I wish I could tell the pups not to worry and that they will love it too.)
