So far things this week are going smoothly over here… Just more of the usual: Teaching, working at the gym and bloggin’!
Yesterday, in between teaching and my late afternoon shift at the gym, I met up with Amy, the events coordinator of our local Girls On The Run chapter, to chat about an upcoming event and additional ways I can help out the organization. I was greeted with the sweetest valentine from GOTR Iredell!
Yes, the backdrop of this valentine is the dalmation-print table at Firehouse Subs.
The spring season of GOTR begins next week and I truly cannot wait! We have a bunch of girls from last season participating again along with some new faces and I have high hopes for another amazing GOTR 5K in May.
During my chat with Amy, she mentioned the need for a new social media volunteer for GOTR Iredell and I am thrilled to be taking over and helping out my local chapter in another way. I just love GOTR so, so much and already have a bunch of ideas for stepping up GOTR Iredell’s social media game.
I also wanted to mention this on the blog because I know a bunch of you are really interested in getting involved with Girls On The Run in some way but cannot coach or aren’t interested in coaching a team. There really are so many different ways to volunteer with GOTR, so definitely reach out to your local chapter to see if there’s a way you can get involved in some capacity if you feel that pull! And for those looking for more information about coaching, check out this post: All About Girls On The Run.
Pure Barre + Breakfast
This morning, I woke up bright dark and early, ate a small apple and took my booty to Pure Barre where I definitely felt the burn. After a week away from barre workouts, my body felt even more challenged than it usually does in the class. Phew!
On my way home, I stopped by Madalyn’s, a local coffee shop, for a vanilla almond milk latte that totally hit the spot.
The owner of Madalyn’s is the friendliest guy in the world, so that makes popping into the adorable coffee shop all the more fun. Delicious coffee + Amazing service = Win!
Once I made it home, I took out the blender and made myself a smoothie that included frozen mango, pineapple, banana and coconut milk.
A little taste of the tropics in February!
While I sipped on my banana smoothie, I cooked up a batch of scrambled eggs that I made with two whole eggs, a heavy pour of egg whites from the carton and two wedges of The Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Garlic & Herb cheese.
It was a great (and very yellow!) breakfast.
Now I’m off to work at the gym (no teaching on the agenda today, though).
See ya later this afternoon! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
