Hola! Happy Wednesday! How is it already Wednesday? My weeks just seem to fly by. That’s a good and bad thing, I guess. My Wednesday posts have been rather random the past few weeks so we’ll continue that trend today.
I kind of ruined my opportunity for regular workouts this week when I did a CrossFit WOD consisting of heavy front squats and pull ups on Monday. My quads are STILL sore to the touch. I don’t know what it is about front squats but they kill me every single time. I was proud of myself though because the workout was a 21-15-9 rep scheme and I was able to do the scaled RX weight of 95 pounds and kip all of the pullups (no band!) for the entire workout. Progress is a beautiful (and motivating!) thing.
Yoga has been a welcome form of working out ever since. Another random, I taught 3 yoga classes yesterday (2 classes, 1 private) and have completely forgotten how much energy is required to teach multiple classes in one day. How I used to teach 5 classes in one day along with training clients is a mystery to me! Funny how when you love something and want to make it happen, it doesn’t seem so bad.
Meals have been good.
A fall-inspired breakfast of pumpkin mixed in with Greek yogurt, apples, bananas, granola and sunflower seed butter.
A fabulous lunch box from Reid’s with all of my favorite salad toppings. Artichoke hears, beets, candied pecans, boiled eggs, feta, dried cranberries…mmm!
Eggplant and sausage strata with brown rice pasta and a little mozzarella cheese. Eggplant + sausage + cheese = a winning combination.
Chicken pad thai made with spaghetti squash. I have to admit I was a little skeptical about this one but it was great! More info on where all of these delicious meals are coming from later this week. I still have a couple more to test but so far, so good!
Another random? I’m redoing my living room and overwhelmed by the possibilities. This is one moment where I will say thank god for Pinterest to show me that I do indeed have a “style.”
So many choices, so little money, such little decorating prowess! 😉
Home stuff/decorating/etc…love it or hate it?
