I was up dark and early again this morning for another early shift at the gym. The gym was pretty much dead today. Apparently it was Sleep In Day in Ocala! I’m jealous!
My shift passed by quickly and I had fun chatting with a few members about a challenge our gym is implementing to encourage members to try new programs and take advantage of some of the fun summer activities that are available to everyone for free. Though I have a quick 45 minute break right now that allowed me to run home really fast, I will be back at the gym personal training and teaching water aerobics very soon.
As for my own workout, I’m also hoping to make it to a yoga class for my own workout this evening. At the very least, I’d like to do a yoga DVD at home (I really enjoy Bethenny’s Skinnygirl Workout), but that’s a little challenging with the At Home Workout Destroyer lingering. I’m craving a good stretch!
Breakfast this morning was a bowl of overnight oats that I prepared last night and ate about an hour into my shift. I am now digging into breakfast number two, a chocolate peanut butter protein smoothie.
Since I am teaching water fitness in two hours, I didn’t want to eat a heavy lunch before class, so I figured a smoothie would hold me over until I can dig into lunch when my class is over at 2 p.m.
Time to get rollin’!
Question of the Morning
- For those of you who pack meals or snacks to bring to work, when do you pack everything up?
If I need to be at work before 5 a.m., I always pack the food I will need the night before. I am not about to take the time to put together breakfast or lunch at 4:30 a.m.! If I am working after 8 a.m., I’ll usually eat breakfast at home and pack my lunch that morning.
