I filled in for an instructor who needed a sub and had a decent bunch of familiar faces mixed with some new folks. I enjoy subbing classes from time to time because it’s such a great way for me to meet new people and expose them to my style of teaching. If they dig it, maybe they’ll come to one of my classes in the future, which is always fun to see!
The 60-minute class passed by fairly quickly and we all worked hard!
(Still absolutely loving the Polar heart rate monitor I bought years ago!)
It felt good to shake out my legs on the bike a little bit because I am still sore from the barbell strength and PiYo classes I taught on Friday. Apparently a week away from teaching and gym workouts killed my poor hamstrings and quads!
After class, I ate a Larabar and worked at the gym for a little bit before it was break time. I left the gym and swung by a local coffee shop for a caramel almond milk latte and drove home to make breakfast, type up my morning blog post and let Sadie out.
I made an egg white and oatmeal protein pancake (I added a bit of almond butter to the batter before cooking it in the skillet for some extra staying power) and topped the pancake with a drizzle of maple syrup. Served with a banana on the side!
After my late breakfast and lovin’ on Sadie, I drove back to the gym to work until it was time for lunch. I had about 30 minutes for lunch and teamed up with a coworker for a quick drive to Subway.
I selected the 6-inch hot ham sub on honey oat with all the veggies except jalapeños and banana peppers. And a bag of chips on the side for some salty crunch!
During lunch, my coworker asked me whether or not I watched the Oscars last night and when I told her I missed it, she immediately brought up Lady Gaga’s performance on her phone and told me I had to watch it. Oh my gosh, she sounded fantastic.
I’m so envious of people who can really sing… I swear if I could belt it out like Lady Gaga, I would harass you guys with videos of myself singing show tunes every single day. And that would obviously lead to the slow death of Peanut Butter Fingers, but, um, I’d be able to sing like Lady Gaga, so I’ll make my money selling gazillions of albums.
Anyway, after listening to Lady Gaga and finishing our lunches, we headed back to the gym to work for a little while longer until I was done for the day and headed home to park my butt at the computer and chat with you guys. I have a freelance project due today that will take up the rest of my work day, but I hope you guys have a great Monday evening!
See ya in the morning!
