Boy, have I had a busy Friday! I woke up super early again and started my day with a smoothie made up of a little bit of Greek yogurt, strawberries, spinach, Plant Fusion protein powder, almond milk, ice, and a touch of peanut butter. I opted for a smoothie because it seems like forever since I have had one, and I was heading to a Body Combat class at 6am and knew that I needed to eat something before hand and didn’t want it to be too heavy sitting in my stomach. I also knew that I was teaching a spinning class about an hour after Combat, so I needed something that would hold my over.
I’m not gonna lie…my tummy felt a little full during Body Combat. Don’t get me wrong, I was still able to perform well, I would have just preferred a lighter feeling in the tummy region. All in all it was still a great class.
I woke up early so that I could put the finishing touches on some crafting I had been up to. Today, two of my good friends had their hooding ceremony for their health professional programs. Maelyn, is now (I guess officially tomorrow after graduation) a Physician’s Assistant (hence the PA) and will be moving to Houston, TX next month!
And Caitlin, who lives just below Brian and I, will be a pharmacist as of tomorrow (hence the Rx sign).
I am so proud of them, and although it has been a long journey, I can’t believe how quickly it has gone. They are both super smart and are going to rock their brand new careers!
After teaching my spinning class, I did something that I have never done before.
I showered at the gym.
And it wasn’t too bad! I was able to get completely ready in 30 minutes…I don’t know about you, but for me 30 minutes is pretty darn quick.
I then drove to Butler for the hooding ceremony and snacked on an apple that I had stashed in my bag. Thank goodness I packed that because as the ceremony went on, my hunger continued to grow.
It is such a perfect day outside for celebrating these ladies’ huge accomplishments!
After the ceremony, I came home and quickly made myself lunch. A nice large salad topped with salsa, plenty of veggies, cottage cheese, and an unpictured side of celery and peanut butter. Delish!
Now, I am off to tackle some things on the to-do list so Brian and I can have fun tonight!
Questions of the Day:
- Have you ever showered at the gym? Was your experience pleasant? Any funny stories?
- What is your record “get ready” time (ladies only for this one!)
