Guess what my gym did?
They changed the instructor of favorite boot camp class. Such a bummer! I will really miss Allyson’s energy, creative workouts and her music selection. Her music was on point and always had an amazing beat that I could get lost in as I pushed my body during the class.
The new instructor still put the class through a good workout today, but her energy level just wasn’t on par with Allyson’s. While the new teacher seems like a nice, laid back person who could be fun to hang out with in real life, I prefer group exercise instructors to be a little more motivating.
At least I left the class super schweaty!
Walk + Breakfast
After our workouts, Ryan and I walked back to our apartment and leashed up the pup for a quick 20- minute walk around the ‘hood.
When we arrived back to our stomping grounds, I meandered into the kitchen to make myself breakfast.
Since I’m going to be in Chicago through Monday, I have a feeling smoothies will be sparse, so I blended one up this morning.
Into the blender went:
- 1 1/4 c. almond milk
- 1/2 c. vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 c. frozen strawberries
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- 1 pinch xanthan gum
- 1 tsp. butter and nut extract
- 1 tsp. coconut extract
A toasted waffle was also consumed as the smoothie was blending.
Phew, that was a close one…
I love it when my smoothies are almost too big for the bowl or cup. I’m a big fan of voluminous foods because I just like to eat, plain and simple. An overflowing smoothie means more bites or more slurps, which makes me a happy camper.
I’m kind of craving a hot and frothy drink right now, so I’m thinking I may have to swing by Starbucks to finally use my free drink birthday coupon!
