Good afternoon, my friends!
How is your Thursday going? Only one more day until the weekend! That has to make you feel better, right?
My Thursday began with scrambled eggs and a banana that I ate while typing up my morning blog post before work.
Then I was out the door and off to the gym to work, teach and workout! Teaching today went well and I was happy to see four or five new faces.
I didn’t have time to take the Zumba class I planned to this morning, but did manage to sneak in a quick and sweaty Nike Training Club (NTC) workout. I completed the 30-minute advanced Metabolic Boost workout created by Sonja Moses. My face was pouring sweat by the end of it and I can assure you this will be a workout I revisit in the future. It was fast-paced and challenging without being the least bit boring. NTC does it again!
I worked through the morning before it was time for a brief breather. I headed home for a late lunch and put together a salad with chicken, pecans, baked beans and light ranch dressing.
Plus two clementines on the side!
Now I have to head back into work. Tonight we have the final meeting of our LiveSTRONG group (we extended the 12-week program by three weeks) and I’m excited to test our participants and see their progress!
See ya tomorrow!
P.S. FYI, if you are interested in trying out the Blue Apron meals I’ve been loving lately, blog readers Meghan and Wendy gave me a head’s up about a good deal this morning. If you sign up for Gilt Groupe (<—affiliate link!) and then download the Gilt app, sign in and click on the “City” tab, you will find a coupon for 50 percent off three of their traditional or vegetarian meals for two! I couldn’t find a way to get this offer on their normal website, so I think you do need to download the app, which I know is a bit of a pain, but I wanted to spread the word in case any of you wanted to try Blue Apron for half price!
