Weekly Wins

[source]

+ Green smoothies prepped at night make for a much easier morning. I'm loving the quick shot of energy in the morning and hey, it helps keep food from going bad.

+ New fun podcasts keeping me company when I'm done with fitness music. I've mentioned my love of true crime in posts previously and I'm super intrigued by this new podcast Accused. Super interesting if you're into unsolved murders. 

+ A new outlook on my BODYATTACK class after I filmed myself last week. When teaching you often think you are KILLING it but when you tape yourself, yeah, not so much. I took a chance last week and man did the tape open my eyes to some weaknesses. I took them home and then ROCKED my Wednesday class, it felt so gooooood!

+ Le Husband was able to come home two days earlier than expected and it was a nice surprise when he came home late and crawled into bed. I'm happy he's traveling because he is fulfilled by his job, but it's always nice when we get more than two days home together. 

+ My sister made it to VA from AZ and I'm so excited we're on the same coast right now.

+ I successfully completed a week back on the IF [intermittent fasting] train and am happy to get back into the IF groove. Teaching late at night really created a crimp in my IF style, but after talking with a fellow instructor starting out I committed to getting back into a window of eating and think I've found the sweet spot. 

+ THIS RIGHT *HERE*! After many a push and kind word about a my own fitness blog I decided to bite the bullet and just step out on that scary new blog ledge. If you have a moment, please check out PINKYFIT321 and let me know your thoughts. There are only two posts live right now and it is VERY generic. Oh, you might finally find out my real name, too.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. We are gonna get in some lake and family time, woohoo < 3!

I can imagine all the things taping yourself would reveal! I always watch my instructors but every once in a while I glance at myself in the mirror and it's usually pretty funny/less than pretty. Have a wonderful weekend!

Do you use a magic bullet type thing or just a blender for smoothies? I want to start making them again, but we only have a blender and it's such a hassle to wash it continually. I'm sure that was the best surprise ever when your husband was able to come home early! And YAY for starting your fitness blog-- I will definitely check it out asap!

Brianne said...

I am so so glad that you decided to start a fitness blog! Also, I never would have guessed that was your real name in a million years. I don't know what I would have guessed but that wouldn't have been it lol. I really love it though! Yay for your husband getting to come home early!
