Thursday Things: I Realized…
Hi guys! Happy Thursday. I hope it’s off to a good start
Last night after dinner (taco salads with fiesta grilled veggies – yum!) Shane and I kicked back and – and realized we were out of shows to watch! Our favorite thing to do is retreat to the television around 8:00 and watch a show in the series we’re currently watching. So far, we’ve knocked out:
- Dexter (3rd favorite show, ever)
- Breaking Bad (1st favorite show, ever)
- Sons of Anarchy (2nd favorite show, ever)
- True Blood
- Modern Family
- How I Met Your Mother
- Big Bang Theory
And many more. Well, a while back, a friend loaned me the series Californication, and I’d heard it’d been a pretty good show from multiple people.
And last night, after two episodes, I realized why those few people were all men. ‘Nuff said.
During the episode, I realized I’ve come to hate the “red ball.”
Hey, mom! Let’s play you throw this thing and I bring it back, overandoverandoverandoveragain. K?!?
This morning, it took me a little more to wake up. I realized my post-run cup of coffee would come pre-run this morning. While sipping, I realized my hair could use a little deep conditioning treatment.
So, before heading out for my run this morning, I realized how long it’d been since I’d done a little deep conditioning trick! – deep condition it while running!
Or in this case, deep coconut oil it while running Before threading my ponytail through my hat, I coated it with about a tbsp. of coconut oil. That way, the heat that my body (and scalp) produces from my workout make the coconut oil penetrate the strands even more! I used to do this a lot with deep conditioner, but haven’t done since I made this post! (throw back from March 2011, what what!)
Pre-run (easy-paced 3 miler) breakfast was a dry brown rice cake. When I came back inside, it was pancake time!
Speaking of pancakes, I tried out a new topping this morning, which incorporates Chocolate PB2.
I tried the regular version over two years ago (hello flashback post!) and was seriously unimpressed. However, I picked up the Chocolate PB2 the other day on a whim, and I realized Iseriously love it. I’ve been whipping up the tastiest PB chocolate protein shakes, sprinkling it in my nighttime snack of Greek yogurt or cottage cheese, and now in/on my pancakes!
For this topping I used a little almond milk + honey + Choco PB2. Super tasty.
As I was simultaneously eating my pancake this morning and watching GMA (totally wins over the Today Show if you ask me, btw) I started thinking about my day. Thursdays are a busy one for me, but I can always assume I have a few clients to train on any given day.
Lately I realized I’ve been totally into the triple threat method of training:
What I’ll do is structure the workout with a little strength circuit (3-4 exercises) followed by a littler cardio circuit (2-3 exercises) followed by an even littler abs circuit (1-2 exercises.) Lather, rinse, repeat! It usually winds up to be about two or three rounds of this trifecta, but it makes the hour go SUPER fast, and clients seem to love it.
Here’s one I did from one of yesterday’s sessions:
Other times I’ll do a couple strength circuit, followed by some cardio, usually in the form of tabata, and then end with about 10 minutes of ab work
Now where was I… talk about a random post, right?
Oh, right! Realizations. Aaaand I just realized I’m running late for my first client of the day Happy Thursday, everyone!
Today Show or Good Morning America?
Any series recommendations for me?
