My busy day is going well so far! Sometimes it’s nice to have a full schedule that does not include "thinking time" I.E. lots of computer work like my normal days.
After a read Real Food Consultation phone call with a reader, I headed down to my old neighborhood, Ballantyne, to meet Victoria for a workout. I miss my old neighborhood SO MUCH! It’s very modern, new, suburban, landscaped and has grown a TON since we moved away 3 years ago.
This building was not in the skyline when we left!!
And the YMCA has been COMPLETELY remodeled + expanded!!! I consider this YMCA "my Y" because it’s where I first went and lost almost all of my weight. It’s now totally different (and totally awesome!)
Wish I’d gotten a snap of the cardio area. It was awesome. It takes me about 15 minutes to get to this Y, so it’s not exactly convenient (I used to be 1 mile away) but it might just be worth the trip a few times – esp. since Victoria works out there!
We warmed up on the stepmills for about 15 minutes and then headed into Sculpt Interval class. It was supposed to be half cardio / half weights, but it was more like 90% weights. Good for me because I need the push to lift, but bad because I prefer jumping around to pain in the muscles! I didn’t feel that worn out when I left class, but moving around my house, showering and making lunch, I really am starting to shake + quake!
After our class we wanted to be outside, so we went to the track and jogged a mile together while we chatted in the gorgeous fall weather. It was a nice cool down.
After my 15 minute drive back home (not as fun as a 15 minute bike ride 🙁 ) I put together this awesome lunch.
I made one of Matt’s smooshed sandwiches on grainy sourdough baguette. I actually trimmed out some of the interior bread to make it more bite-friendly (and lighten the loaf a bit). It was a super high baguette that I don’t think I could have fit my mouth around! It was great like this with turkey, ketchup, mustard, romaine, and pickles. (I put ketchup + pickles on to see if it would be more burger like and it was pretty good!)
The produce. Sberries + carrots + peppers in a little Naturally Nutty Chocolate Butter Toffee PB.
I used my new Mary Kay products today. My arms smell like Passion Fruit and my face is bronzed and moisturized 🙂
See y’all late tonight after three classes!
