Good morning! Yesterday afternoon I got tied up at the gym and wasn’t able to blog during break time like I anticipated, but I’m back today and am just sitting down at the computer after my usual 6 a.m. Tuesday morning spin class.
When the alarm goes off, it never feels easy to get out of bed and get my teaching game face on, but once I get to the spin studio and hop on the bike, the group exercise instructor fairy somehow helps me along and blesses me with some much-needed energy every time. Thank goodness!
The other day my boss at the gym checked in with me about teaching just to see where my head is at and I reiterated again that I really hope to continue teaching as long as I can before the baby comes. I feel so, so fortunate that my workouts have been able to stay fairly consistent and while I’ve had to make some modifications, I feel most like myself when I am working out and teaching. Let’s hope it continues!
Once I made it back home, it was time for a quick shower and breakfast. I have been on a HUGE cheese kick lately and ate a Honeycrisp apple with a few small slices of Jarlsberg cheese along with a bowl of egg white oatmeal (prepared with cocoa powder and peanut butter).
When my mother-in-law was in town, she got me hooked on the rich, buttery flavor of Jarlsberg cheese and I’ve been pairing it with apple or pear slices for a mid-morning or after-dinner snack every single day since her visit. (This morning I was too lazy to slice the apple so I just took a bite of apple and then took a bite of cheese. Whatever works.) The sweet + salty combination is so darn good!
Plans for the rest of the day include our 24-week prenatal appointment (I am SO ready for this and cannot wait to hear our little one’s heartbeat!), work and Girls On The Run. We have our big practice 5K this afternoon and I spent a little time organizing snacks and prizes for the girls while I ate breakfast this morning.
The practice 5K is my favorite practice of the season, so I’m really looking forward to it!!
Have a great Tuesday!
