Hello and Happy Monday!
I woke up this morning really hoping for a Snow Day. All of the schools in our area are closed, it’s so freaking cold with blowing snow and we had a Level 2 Snow Emergency (we only close at Level 3). Emily, a girl I work with, text me telling me she’s not coming in today and I was so jealous – part of me considered calling off, too, but then I remembered how much more I’ll enjoy a random day off when it’s 80 degrees out!
How was your weekend? Mine was very quiet, relaxing and productive. Even though I was sad to not be with Dan, I made the most of it and enjoyed the ‘me’ time by doing everything I love.
Friday night, after work, I went over to my sister’s house for a slumber party! I enjoyed one glass of red wine and we just hung out and chit chatted until we called it at night at 10:30. Party animals!
My body clock woke me up at 6:45 and I was happy to roll over and fall back asleep – I didn’t wake again until 9:00 and man it felt good!
I headed back to my house where I made eggs and coffee before I headed to TRX class.
I walked into class and no one was there yet. Eventually another girl arrived and I chatted with her about class and what to expect. There ended up only being 3 girls (including me) in class, so it was nice to have individual attention from the instructor on some of the moves I wasn’t as familiar with.
At the end of class, we did handstands – so cool! We locked our feet into the straps and walked our way up on our hands until our feet we’re almost off the ground and flicked them into the air – like this. I felt pretty bad-ass doing it and I definitely felt it on Sunday morning – my core is still sore. I guess there is an earlier class that includes sprints in between TRX moves and that sounds a bit more up my alley. Class was cool and I was sore, but I like to feel my heart race and the sweat pouring down my face – you know what I’m saying?!
After class, I ran some errands and then headed home for lunch – I was starving!
One of my favorites – Sante Fe Salad – which included, spring mix, chicken, TJ’s black bean and corn salsa, tortilla chips and greek yogurt/salsa dressing. It hit the spot!
The rest of the day and night was pretty chill. I had homemade chicken chunks for dinner and watched We Are The Millers – hilarious movie!!
I slept in again, ahhh! 🙂 Then, I watched the news, looked at the ads and enjoyed some coffee.
I needed some breakfast, but really wasn’t feeling eggs, so I made one piece of Ezekiel toast with pb and banana.
I used that as my pre-workout fuel and made myself head right downstairs for some cardio. Typically, Sunday is my rest day, but I was feeling good and a little extra cardio never hurt anyone. I popped in my favorite form of cardio and got to work!
I made another salad for lunch – this time with spring mix, banana peppers, goat cheese, black beans and chicken with ACV and a bit of light caesar since my balsamic is at work.
Really good combo!
The rest of the afternoon I spent meal prepping and making Vanilla Shakeology Power Bites. I basically used this recipe but made a few changes.
They are pretty legit and I calculated them down to 60 calories per ball. Not terrible and better than the Oatmeal Raisin White Chocolate Chip Cookies I also baked and am trying to pawn off. 😉
Typical salads for lunch.
I spent the evening watching E! Red Carpet for Gammy’s and the Bachelor Wedding. All in all it was a lovely, low key, weekend. I enjoyed getting my workouts in, eating healthy and not being hungover!
Next weekend we’re celebrating my birthday, so it might be a different story…
