Is it the weekend? … Finally.
My day started at about 7 this morning. Got up, packed my gym bag, made my THRIVE SHAKE & hit the road for the Y. I drank about 1/2 of my shake on the way to the Y & left the other half in my car (since it was like an ice box) to grab after I finished my gym-time.
THRIVE Shake with Strawberries & Unsweetened Almond Milk
I left for the Y just early enough to get in a nice RUN before teaching my first session of TRX. I pounded out an AWESOME, SWEATY 4 miles in under 40 minutes. It was most definitely a “STRESS-RELIEVING” type of run this morning ~ there was no ‘leisure’ about it. I put all my thoughts aside (since I woke up with about 100 of them running through my head) and just ran…focused on the music and my stride.
After the run was my first TRX training session. I had four AMAZING individuals in my class and they all ROCKED it for being their first time on the TRX trainers. I CANNOT WAIT until next weekend, when we can spend the full hour becoming a sweaty-mess since they now know all the basics about using the TRX equipment.
After TRX, it was time to get down to business for a while and do some work at the Y before officially calling it ‘the weekend.’ It was noon when I got around to eating the snack I had packed to munch on. By that time, my belly was growling & I was HUNGRY!
Packed my PB, Honey, and Sandy Thin in this little bag I received with my yoga mat from Lulu. So fun!!
PB + Honey (just a bit) on a Whole Grain Nature’s Own Sandwich Thin
The PB + bit-o-Honey sandwich tasted INCREDIBLE. I had not enjoyed a “PB Sandy Thin” in a LONG time. Mainly because I try to avoid bread as much as possible these days, and lately I am still trying to monitor my PB intake. If I eat PB, it is almost always: a plain-old spoonful, in a Powerball, or on an English Muffin with SF Jelly. This change-up was PERFECT ~ hit.the.spot.
My MOST FAVORITE PB…ever.
this!!) and then decided to whip up some Chicken-Noodle soup (since I have had zero time to do this throughout the week) before blogging. I believe the soup will be my supper tonight…or, perhaps an afternoon snack?! YUM!
Whatever your plans are tonight, I hope you all ENJOY the weekend. Keep your eating habits HEALHTY (and remember moderation when it comes to sweets or alcohol) & you will have less damage control to do come Monday. If you did not get a good sweat-session in today, plan one into your Sunday. Just do it. — Make it happen, people.
Until next time ~
