Thursdays are nuts! With KidFit at 4:00 and Total Body at 6:00, I am running around like a mad man! Where did I leave off….oh yes, lunch! :-D While prepping for my classes I decided it was a fruity sort of day, and listened to what my body was craving/screaming.
I started my cereal/fruit bowl by mixing the “wet” ingredients, which were the natural peach jam, AB, and Greek Yogurt (hmmm…like my Giveaway??? More on that at the end of this post)
I then added my diced fruit… (strawberries/nectarine)
Topped with my cereal(s), mixed, and bathed it all in some cinnamon.
Who wouldn’t want to eat this for lunch, may I ask?!?!
Got to work on some new moves for Total Body HIIT, and then headed to Johnson City for KidFit! We had a ton of kids and it was super fun. I had them run lots of suicides, needless to say they were red-faced and sweating. Mission accomplished. Before class (and still not running because of the injured knee) I tackled 30 minutes on my beast of choice, the elliptical.
Chowed down on this between gyms:
Oh, Nutz Over Chocolate….you are simple, yet still my favorite. Although your cousin Peppermint Stick comes in a close second, so watch your back, ya dig?
It was then time to head to the YMCA for Total Body HIIT! Was totally stoked because another local blogger, Ashlie was coming!!!! She is super sweet and I adore her blog! Here was the agenda for class
(pardon the chicken like scratch handwriting.)
Everything should be self explanitory except for “Baby Makers!” hahahahaha. This is a KILLER move where you take a resistance band/strap, loop it through the risers of the bench…secure it to your feet, and then lift them straight in the air. We would take them down and up slowly, and hold high pulses. They killlllllllllll the inner thigh, it is fun times. This is the most “groan” worthy move for sure. Try it out, and tell me what you think! Here were some random class shots!
Here is Ashlie and I in post-sweat glory! Is she not adorable?!
And she came bearing gifts! LOOK, the elusive Coconut Butter!
SCORE! Does she know me well or what?? I think this is going to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. YOU ROCK ASHLIE!
Also, another veggie (no blog ) friend was kind enough to bring me DINNER when she came to class tonight! Check this out:
I love homemade goodies, and having this quick and easy dinner right after class was perfection! I headed to the Holiday Inn to visit some workin’ pals, and enjoyed my dinner right there and then.
Check out all the Quinoa goodness…
The soup was amazing as well!
And the best thing about visiting friends at the Holiday Inn….COOKIES!!!!
This little cranberry/oatmeal gem was the perfect end to a delicious dinner.
From meeting Ashlie, to her coconut butter gift, to a FREE veggie/delicious dinner, and a cookie courtesy of some good friends…..today has been an awesome day. I have been GIVEN everything today, now it is YOUR turn to receive!
