The week was a pretty good one. Sunday was an OFF day, due to work getting in my way! 😉 Monday brought the usual TRX and Spin class instruction. TRX is always a B. I think that’s a good thing. I know I am getting stronger because of it, but it will always be a challenge to me. Spin class was a tough one. I can’t exactly remember what we did, but I remember it being challenging. It was a week ago, what do you want from me? 🙂 Tuesday was another OFF day, due to hunting. Boooo! Wednesday I taught Cardio Sculpt and Spin class. Cardio Sculpt was challenging too. It was kind of circuit style— with 3 minute cardio bursts throughout. But the cardio did not stop there..the bursts were just the icing on the cake. Weighted jump squats, jump rope ( held weights), and jumping jacks ( with weights) were all part of the circuit. I think they liked it. I did, so I think that’s a good thing. 🙂 Spin seemed extra hard because of this class! It was hills and speed day. Thursday I did a nice steady state elliptical session. I almost didn’t make it. My PJ’s were nice and warm….. Friday TRX and spin class instruction. I was happy to be able to get in 3 weight sessions this week and I subbed the Friday noon Spin. Saturday- 6 mile run! My buddy Mary and I felt strong enough to run further, but we didn’t want to get all cocky so we stopped. I will start my training soon enough. After the run, we hopped on the elliptical for about 30 minutes of easy intervals ( mine were easy, not sure about Mary’s…) I was all set to get home to pick Amara up from basketball, but plans changed…..so I stayed at the gym and was able to be a participant in a spin class for 30 minutes. So different being a student and NOT the teacher for once. I need to do that more. So that was my exercise filled week. I am currently on day 8 of the 10 day the Advocare Herbal Cleanse. Things are going well and I have been filling up on homemade soups too. It’s an easy way to get in a lot of veggies and clean carbs. One of my favorite soups is Coconut Butternut Squash via The Paleo-Project.com. It’s so good! I am about to make this
Dr. Oz. Belly Blasting Soup– caution – if you like EXTRA spicy things; don’t change a thing, but if you don’t- you might need to omit some of the chili powder! It will clear your sinuses in a minute! 🙂
So, what does an innocent curly-haired 8-year-old look like with straight hair??
Like this! She looks a little less innocent to me, but she loves it! She had at least 1/2 an inch cut off- maybe more. I like it both ways, but I prefer her curls. As hard as her hair is to care for- it’s just who she is!
Who has started to plan their race schedules for next year? I am in the beginning stages and will share soon. Let me know what you plan to do or recommend some races –near or far!
