G’morning! How we doing today?? I just finished training a client, and then noshed on some damn good oats:
Another blueberry + peanut butter combo…
aka the best combo 😉
However, as I type this (in Live Writer) the internet’s down. So unless the hubski calls me back before I’m ready to hit “publish” I may have done many other things since.
Man, I’m glad I’ve had early morning clients every morning since leaving my full time job– it gets my booty up and running and in productive mode. In fact, yesterday was super productive!
After my early morning clients and breakfast, I took Niko for a walk, and then headed to a new-to-me gym to try out one of their group fitness classes where I could potentially start instructing a class or two sooner or later.
A note about group fitness. Unfortunately, the course I signed up for to become better-prepared to become group fitness certified was cancelled due to low attendance. I was SO upset! Major suckage. However, luckily this gym sends its instructors to its own training to get certified for Group classes.
The gym I went to was a gym here in town called Fitness Connextion. I took Group Active, a class that combines step, strength, and balance in a one hour time period. It was a lot of fun, and went by SUPER fast. The instructor, Sarah, was also great and I think it’d be a blast to teach 😀
Afterward, I wanted a bit more cardio in my day, so I left my car parked in the lot and then took off on a 35 minute run throughout a neighborhood with monstrous houses, lakes, and fountains. In my mind I was a desperate housewife about to have an affair with the gazillion gardeners I saw in the yards. hahaha
Once home, I made a HUGE salad.
Check out the fork to bowl ratio:
Scientific ratio measurements there, folks. HUGE. It had romaine, arugula, broccoli, snap peas, avocado, and eggs in it. Delicious. The dressing was a mix of tahini + hummus + braggs amino acids. It worked perfectly with the veggies in the salad.
On the side, I had a brown juice (spinach + carrots + apples)
and a flattened banana from Trader Joe’s.
Clarabelle had a leaf:
A catnip leaf! We planted a catnip plant in our yard, and I wanted to see if it worked like the good stuff.
She’s obsessed. And Niko’s jealous.
The productivity continued as I steam mopped the upstairs tile, and got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed the downstairs tile. This was work, but it looks AMAZING now. And after some physical work, I put my mental productivity in check as I began to log all my mileage used for personal training. Being self-employed, one needs to be very detail-oriented!
The blueberries are now gone 😦
I had another client later in the evening, but was determined to make Brandi’s sweet potato falafel for dinner.
It was a successful and scrumptious dinner. Go make this. NOW!
On the side, I made a salad of arugula, romaine, pecans, and dried cherries – with a dressing of coconut oil + apple cider vinegar + stevia.
With a glass of vino (which made me tipsy instantly…what’s going on?!) to was it down. The sauce you see on the plate was just a tahini + hummus + sea salt mixture.
Well I’m out to go…be productive 😉 Hope you all have a kick-booty Tuesday!!
Aaand I’m without the internet until noon. So it’s probably lunch time or after now that you’re reading this. Sorry guys! 🙂
