As someone who is a serious planner and likes a set schedule, working at the gym is forcing me to be more flexible and adaptable. On days when I don’t have a set shift, I am still there a lot training clients or teaching a class. I think this is actually a good thing for me in the long run, but it will take some getting used to. I missed you guys this morning!
I had a training session with my first client of the day scheduled for 7 a.m., so I got to the gym a little after 5 a.m. so I could exercise for an hour and have time to shower, eat breakfast (overnight oats again) and work on on a training plan before our appointment.
From the time I clocked in, I didn’t stop moving. I trained one client (she just signed up for more sessions today – woo!) and took two people through a functional workout before I got a call from another instructor asking me to sub for her water fitness class.
Check out those menacing clouds!
I soon found myself rewearing the sweaty clothes I worked out in earlier that morning to teach the class which was awfully pleasant. I will definitely try to remember to pack an extra workout outfit from here on out just in case something comes up. Ick!
It actually rained halfway through the class as I was teaching (no lightning though, so it wasn’t canceled) and I joked that someone was trying to tell me it was time to take another shower. Yikes!
My shift at the gym wasn’t too long today and I got off work a little after noon and high-tailed it home to make a smoothie for lunch. I knew I wanted a cold lunch since I was overheated from teaching outside and a smoothie sounded perfect.
Too bad it looked like death in a cup!
I blame the frozen blueberries.
In this smoothie:
- Vanilla almond milk
- Frozen blueberries
- Frozen raspberries
- Cashew butter
- Chocolate protein powder
- Cocoa powder
- Fresh spinach
It was fantastic and totally hit the spot.
Now I’m off to take my second shower of the day and head out to a craft store to pick up some supplies for a project I am working on. More on that in a few days!
