On the Pumpkin Bandwagon

28 Sep

Well good morning loves and happy Friday! It’s been a crazy week; lots of office work, teaching group fitness, classes, and preparing for Sunday’s Brooksie Way Half Marathon! I’ve heard wonderful things about the course so I’m super excited that it’s my first half marathon in Michigan!

Rachelle and I will be starting the race together but I’ve been informed- “DO NOT run with me!” Don’t you feel the love?!

I’m meeting one of the social media guru’s with the company I recently started working with; fingers crossed that I’ll have some AMAZE BALLS news for you come tomorrow! It may involve wearing an outfit and writing a review about it right here..who knows!?

Last night I taught Abs, Glutes, and Thighs at the Rec center! The workout will be posted on Workout Wednesday-stay tuned 🙂 I appreciate the social media department advertising my classes!

ESPECIALLY when one of the attendees (a fave one I may add) still thinks about me after the class with a shout out tweet  :).

love what I do!

Things I’ve been loving lately:

  • pumpkin. first purchase was Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice coffee. I like it but need a better way of drinking it..any suggestions? I like sweetness but don’t want to start on artificial sweeteners.
  • sparkling ice. a naturally flavored mountain spring water that has zero calories. if you like pop but want to wean yourself off of it, I highly recommend trying this! It’s fizzy and tingly going down but you won’t feel guilty about drinking one ortwoorthreeorfour a day. (Sparkling Ice did not ask me to review this product; I’m just obsessed; these are my own thoughts 🙂 ).
  • almond, peanut, & cashew butter. scrumptious. my friend, Sarah, introduced me to this last year and I just now decided to keep it as a staple..sometimes I question myself..OIAJ= 1/3c. oats, heaping spoonfuls of Greek yogurt, splashes of almond milk, chia seeds, banana all mixed into the almost-empty jar.

Is anyone else running in the Brooksie Way 5k or half marathon?

How do you drink your pumpkin spice coffee?

Day 37

Hump Day!

I slept SO good last night! I’m hoping it’s because the stress of my presentation was finally lifted off my shoulders. I never feel stressed as I’m going through stressful situations, but realize after it’s over with how much more at ease I am. Why can’t my body just tell me-You Are Stressed, Beware. Then I wouldn’t have to think 10 other different things are wrong with me! I even presented in one of my slides that “Stress isn’t a thing, rather a reaction to a thing you’re dealing with.” 

Body Sculpt & Balance went well! I had 10 regulars of the class so they all knew what to expect from the body sculpting aspect, but the balance aspect was all new! Duh-duh-duh. I designed the workout in a way that every exercise completed had an extra “component” to it. Whether it was a squat with a knee lift and hold, a lunge with a twist, a triceps extension with leg abductions, or walk-out push-ups on the stability ball, all moves required balance, coordination, stability, and awareness. I even went as far as telling them to close both eyes by then end of the class! T-t-t-tough. A women who attended my Basic Body Sculpt class on Monday requested the “exercise that looks like a dog peeing and unlady-like”..ahh, the infamous Fire Hydrants. Did I forget to mention that all shame needs to be left at the door when I’m teaching? 😛

I took my first ever Double Step class today! It was fun but it could be a hazard. We angled the steps in a ^ position and did the same steps that you would do with 1 step, but added another to the mix.

Busy afternoon! Office work, organizing, trip to Target, PT client, meeting, and sushi!!
