Today has been non-stop, but I heart that. Come on people…hectic is good!
Started out with a breakfast parfait -o- joy.
Who knew they even had puffed millet cereal?!?!?! My love for millet grows by the day. Started off this parfait with a bed of Greek Yogurt (Dannon, Strawberry)
Next went the millet-love!
And then finished off with a sliced nana, some Gourmet Granola (Millet, Oats, Chocolate Chips, Other deliciousness that currently escapes my exhausted mind.)
Also topped with ch, ch, ch, chiiiiia! 🙂 Layered yumminess.
This was the perfect “on the go fuel” to get me started early with my Elementary kiddos, and some KidFit Yoga!
Today the kids were extra cute, and quite frankly…a little drained themselves as it was the last day of their TCAP testing. For those of you who don’t know what TCAP testing is, it’s basically a huge formal exam at the end of the year that the kids drill for constantly. There is way too much pressure/weight put on the results, and the Teaching Major in me hates it with all my being!!!! Boo for standardized/high stake testing!
That being said, we took it easy today. We did some nice relaxing poses, and I let them just de-stress. Hey…even elementary aged kids have alot on their plates.
After Yoga, I sped like a madman to the YMC-izzle for a back to back combo of Spin/RIPPED. RIPPED is like my Total Body HIIT class, just minus the cardio. I really liked teaching these two classes back to back! I also love subbing classes, because I get to see a completely different group of people. Today we did a lower body/upper body/ab combo, and repeated with different moves. Amazing sweat session! Gotta love the P90x push-up/oblique chopper! Rawr!
After class it was finally time to go on the NEWS! Eeeeeeek!
Met my girl Natalie, and we were off to the news station to promote Eight To The Eights.
I have totally decided that TV anchorman is in my immediate future…this place was so cool!
Managed to steal a pic with Sara Diamond, before we went live!
Once she went on, it was almost time for us! By this point, I kept adjusting my clothes/mic/fidgeting anyway I could. Nervous wreck!!!
Here was the studio where we were interviewed:
So. Much. Fun. Seriously, as soon as we were “on” it seemed to go by in like 10 seconds! I managed to pull it off without slipping and/or any awkwardness. Video coming soon guys, I promise! Hopefully we got the word out a bit more about the program, I am stoked to see what happens from here.
After the interview, Natalie took me to an amazing lunch spot that I had never been before!
This place is a salad lovers dream come true!
The “Super Salad” gave options of three pre-prepared salads to top a huge bed of romaine lettuce.
They also have a ton of brewed and fruity teas. We went with the raspberry.
Did I mention how much I love my runnin’ buddy, race plannin’, scooter drivin’ (Thats right…she drives a pink scooter around town…get jealous!), big sis Natalie?!?!
Now bring on the salad!!!
I got the pasta salad, wild rice and cranberry, and oriental!
I don’t mess around.
We amanged to avoid the desserts…but trust me, it wasn’t easy.
After a fantabulous trip to the news, and and even better lunch…it was time to keep on keepin’ on…and back to the school for High School KidFit…followed immediately by my 5:30pm spin!
New CD tonight (tracks coming soon!)
Also…thanks to Jeremy, I am now obsessed with this gal…who is very GaGa-esque!
After Spin, it was time for dinnnnnnner. Headed to Panera because I was famished…and it feeds my face nicely. 😉
Half veggie sandwich, half fuji salad…..whole apple. 😉
And now here I sit at the bizzle….contemplating life…blogging, and planning out the rest of my classes for the week. Life is good!
