Well yesterday was quite a day. But first, I have a couple things I’d like to share with ya’ll.
First up – another 30 minute core workout. This time we’re working with tons of planks and tons of crunches.
Warm up: 25 jumping jacks, 10 squats, 25 high knees, 25 butt kickers, 10 reverse lunges w/ twists, 10 cat/cows, then…
As always, check with your physician before beginning any new exercise programs.
Yeah, I’m not the best at creating graphics, but I like to think I’m pretty decent at creating workouts. Focus on the latter part
Also, a new nighttime snack I’ve been loving on every.single.night for the past week:
Coconut-shelled banana popsicles!
Wait…does it have to be on a stick to be called a popsicle? Well, whatever you want to call it, it’s delicious. And stupid easy.
Take a frozen banana:
And pour some canned coconut milk over top of it. The coconut milk will harden and form a shell over the banana. I found this out accidentally when I added a frozen banana to my cookies and milk last week. What a beautiful accident. Try it!
Like every night for the past week, this is how I ended my Tuesday last night. What a great ending to a … very weird day.
First, I got stopped by a train that literally took 8 minutes to pass. I was almost late for my Blast Core class this morning, but thankfully, I sped the rest of the way there.
Then, as I was leaving the gym to head to a corepower yoga class, I saw a HUGE black crow about a foot away from me. It was literally the size of a small dog.
I ran away quickly.
And when I got out of yoga class, I headed to Starbucks to do a little computer work before teaching my next class – and ate leftover spaghetti for, well, whatever meal you call that you eat at 10:30 a.m.
quinoa noodles + meat sauce – cold, eaten in my car. Still
delicious pretty good.
Anyway, where was I? OH! Right. After eating my
lunch meal, my bottom retainer popped out, after 15+ years of wearing it.
I hear from Brittany that this is no bueno and I need to get this situation remedied asap if I don’t want to waste the $$$$$ my parents spent on braces for me in the 6th grade. Booooo.
By this point, I thought the world might be trying to tell me something, but I remembered I don’t really believe that crap, stuck my fingers in my ears and reminded myself absolutely none of these things are worth ruining a day. And wouldn’t ya know it? The day ended on a great note. I had a great day of training clients, teaching small group sessions, and even signed a new client! Whoop whoop.
What’s your current nighttime snack – if you have one?
