Loving my job and life lately…

Also known as feeling better! But seriously look at these ladies, they show up morning after morning, when most people are in bed and make my job so fun, even when i’m sick, down, just not feeling myself, I walk into a class, see these people, and know I need to bring my A Game!

These ladies are the best! I teach Monday nights, and Tuesday mornings * yes I sleep, but not enough * but these amazing athletes seriously make my job so fun, they keep me on my toes, and make me want to try new things, and create new to me moves like this one!

Grab a weight, drop into a low squat, and steep out side to side alternating legs it burns! I gave my group last night three exercises, each lasting a min, back to back for three mins, and then they got a full 1 min break, we worked on our cardio endurance and had a blast!

We mixed up the second half of the class with jump ropes! Have you used a jump rope in awhile? If not grab one, so easy, and such an amazing workout! My Green juice love is still in full effect up in here, everyday people, making my $99 a good investment!

Speaking of good investments, do you guys commute to work with 5000 bags like I used to? We ll this year for christmas mister got me a backpack and I seriously love it! No more 5000 bags, and falling all over the place on the T. It’s not a million lbs on my back either! It’s amazing. My mom also got me these mitten/ gloves that you can also use your phone with and they are amazing and deff needed in this cold!

What was the best christmas gift? Gift to yourself, or gift you gave to someone. I never thought I would think backpacks were cool ha I guess I am a dork but I love mine! I have also been loving my new years goal of a new recipe a week, and I have been on a soup kick, so Corn Chowder it was last night!

The house might smell like bacon for awhile- opps! ha but the soup was so yummy! I used more potatoes then needed since I don’t eat fish so left that out. I know I am the worst eater/ and adult for no fish, but the sent I just can’t. Someday maybe, but for now I am fish free.

How is your week going?

Strawberry Picking and Maine Day 1

Hello Friday!
I am up in Maine visiting a friend and we are running a 1/2 marathon on Saturday, so today was a little upper body at the gym, a light walk, and then off here to Strawberry Pick. I ended up with 4 large containers of the FRESHEST besets strawberries for less then $11…AMAZING! I have never done it before so it was fun, and nice to be outdoors…sorry to make your mouths water!

If you have never been strawberry picking, GO, it was lovely! I can’t wait to go Blueberry picking next…suggestions on where near Boston to go for that?!?! Another perk of my Maine travels was stopping at these outlets! I went into Jcrew, and Lululemon and got some good buys! Including these shorts. One short leg says “Right Blinkah” the other say’s “Left Blinkah” I LOVE them and they were only $29! So for this am’s little jaunt, I took these shorts for a whirl! LOVED them.

Fun right? The weather has been amazing here, it’s sunny, but not too warm, and no bugs yet have eaten me! So in for the win for tomorrow’s half marathon in Portland. My friend lives right by a beautiful lake in a small town, and the views are just so “maine” and perfect! Were also heading into Portland tonight to grab our bibs for the race, so going to see some light houses, which will be even more “maine” in my mind 🙂 I seriously am loving this place! We checked out a little Farmer’s market today at Pineland Farms and hung with her stunning pup, saw beautiful flowers and lake views. It was a good day!
