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?!?!
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…..
