Annnnnnd, we’re back.


Wow….spare time….to blog!!!  Where was this hour of opportunity yesterday?!?!  Oh thats right…I don’t even think I had time to exhale…let alone blog!!!!  Depressing!  From teaching my normal classes, to subbing for someone for 3 weeks and picking up all her classes….it’s insane!  Did I mention that our city’s version of Biggest Loser aka “Eight To The Eight’s” kicks off FRIDAY?!?!?!  I am about at max capacity in terms of time limits here.  Shew.  It’s a darn good thing I love my job more than life.  ;-)

Started off the day with a 5:45am “Insanity” inspired Circuit Class.  Emily and Kim have been doing Insanity on a regular basis, and I wish I had the time to do it with them!  It is full of awesomeness in every sense of the word…..assuming that is an actual word.  ;-)  Instead of joining them, I have been adding the moves to my classes…which is going swimmingly!  Today’s Circuit Class used absolutely no equipment, and had 12 stations.  We went through each station once, at one minute…and then repeated the circuit.  The last circuit was comprised of 12-1 minute ab workouts.  KILLER!  Also, theres nothing like ending a class with a full out 2 minute suicide drill using the whole gym.  ;-)  They love to hate me.

Walked back home (loving the fact that I am in walking distance) and met my favorite guy for breakfast.

Ain’t he cute?

Went very random with today’s mix-ins.  They included:

  • Agave Maple Syrup Blend
  • Chia Seeds
  • Dried Bananas
  • Mocha Madness Trail Mix
  • Almond Butter

Totally random.  Totally delicious.

Have I mentioned my un-dying love for my precious trail mix?!?!

Droolsville.

At this point, it was back to the YMC-izzle to teach “Total Body Low Impact” which is basically a strength/cardio full body workout, minus the intense plyometric/jumping movements that I feature in my other classes.  Again, another sweat sesh!

Seemed to have developed a pattern for today.  Teach…eat…teach…eat.  Therefore…it was time for lunch.

New to me flavor of Veggie Burger…this time, Earth Fizzle brand!  This bad boy was sooooo good!  I put it on an Arnold’s Thin with some Light Swiss Laughing Cow, Spinach…and then pressed the whole thing on the George Foreman…

Melty, cheesy, yum.  Also had some Veggie Booty, and a chopped Honey Crisp!

Well.  It is almost 3:00.  You know what that means, right?!?!?!

I have been having them put my protein powder in the Frap when they blend it!  For half price, you can’t beat it.  Plus they are fully customizable now!  I higgggghly recommend the new Mocha Lite.

Well.  Time for a coffee/protein buzz…and then to my other gym for KidFit…and back to the YMCA for Total Body HIIT.  Man, my body is hating me this week! Do as I say, not as I do people! All these high intense workouts (especially weight workouts) should not be done back to back…and definitely not on the same day!  Give your body a rest.

What is your favorite Frappuccino/Starbucks beverage?!  How often do you hit up the Bizzle each week?  If you could invent any flavor of Frapp, what would it be?  I would want some sort of Almond Milk/Protein Powder/Carmel creation….Mmmmm…..

    I tried some pirates booty recently and I’m compeletey addicted!

    I used to go to starbucks a ton, but not as much any more. Last summer I used to get a carmel frap with a shot of coffee…looks like they took care of my custom order though with the carmel frap with extra coffee :D

  2. Seriously, I was just sitting here trying to figure out how to work a frap run into my schedule since I have to go babysit in a few.

    I used to be addicted to soy lattes. I mean, addicted. 3x a day. Not good for your waistline trust me. Fave flavas – gingerbread spice (!!!!), caramel, but getting a soy one means you get a kick of vanilla so I usually just get them plain!

  3. Whyyyy have I never seen veggie booty before?? I actually have to portion control myself with the white cheddar because I could eat the entire bag in one sitting. Definitely will be looking for the veg kind soon!

  4. Marcin and I tried that trail mix the other day . . seriously, we were like two squirrels devouring a feast! I had to pry the container away from the two of us before we ate the whole thing!

    I’m pretty boring when it comes to starbucks – Tall/grande nonfat caramel machiato (iced during the summer). Sometimes, when I’m in a rich chocolatey mood, have ask for a tuxedo mocha. It’s not on there menu, but it’s have mocha, half white chocolate mocha . . it’s sinful!

    Starbucks needs to seriously do this everyday (or like every weekday), they would get soooo much increased business!!!

    Hey tyler! its emily, brittani’s roommate! I just saw on her twitter that you had a blog and I just re-started mine up, so I thought I would drop in and say hey! Maybe one of these days I’ll get back out there with britt to take another spin class!

  7. I LOVE the Starbucks Black Iced Tea Shaken Lemonade. YUM. I also love the Earl Grey Tea Lattes when it’s not so hot. almost any tea there is yummy. And I am dying to try the new 1/2 price fraps. I want to bring my protein powder and have them mix it.

    If it is warm outside I want a passionfruit tea sweet. If it is cold I want a white chocolate pepermint mocha. Yumm!

    I’m a daily guest at the Bizzle. We don’t have a full service Starbucks (Gasp) in my town so I’m in the Kroger Mon – Fri, and in the Target Sat and Sun. My fav is Venti Iced Skinny Caramel Macchiatto. When I’m counting calories it’s a Grande Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte. So good – I’m addicted…. need intervention.
