Last night, Brian and I relaxed with one of our guilty pleasures…The Bachelorette. I think that my two favorites are Sean and Arie…Ryan on the other hand…makes me think of Gaston. Some of the things he was saying last night just made him sound like he thought that he was THE coolest guy… “I’m a catch…” well, if he is such a catch, then why hasn’t anyone caught him?? Oh the drama…!!
My go-to breakfast these early mornings has been baked oatmeal. They are great because you can make them the night before you need them, or a couple of days in advance and just store them in the fridge. I like to eat a little bit before my workout for energy, and then finish the rest in the car on my way to work. The baked oatmeal cakes are hearty, and filling, which is perfect after a good sweaty workout.
For now, these are great, but I will admit that I do miss the variety of a smoothie, egg whites, and overnight oats. Looks like I will just have to look forward to those meals on the weekends!
Another thing that I am having to adjust and get used to is my new workout routine. Because I teach in the mornings, it is easiest for me to do my strength workouts in the mornings I am not teaching, or right before or right after my class, but it is a little bit harder for me to fit my running into the morning routine. Currently, I am training for a half marathon in September. Now, I know that is quite a ways away, but I want to improve my speed and I want to be as prepared as possible. I find that with a little bit of planning, anything is possible.
So, on Sunday night, I planned my workout schedule (color coded of course), along with Brian’s so that we could enjoy the maximum amount of time with each other after work.
Here is the weeks schedule:
- Monday—bootcamp workout at the apartment
- Tuesday–Teach 6am spin class, do arms workout directly after, run 4 miles after work
- Wednesday–Teach 6:30am Yoga Sculpt, run 7×400 on the track before class
- Thursday–Video tape attempt #2 of Body Pump at 6am
- Friday–Strength training workout before work, run 3 miles after work
- Saturday–Run 8 miles
Let’s see how well I stick to the schedule 😉
Question of the Morning:
- How do you fit working out into a busy weekly routine?
