AM- Taught at BOSU class
PM- Ran 2 very slow miles on the treadmill at home
20 minutes on home elliptical while watching King of Queens (Definitely not my favorite show.)
Happy first day of spring! That’s today, yes? Holy smokes. Are you ready for it?
This guy is.
Or not. Um….
Some eats from yesterday.
It was hard to pass up this breakfast pie fresh out of the sandbox,
but my cinnamon sugar breakfast STUFTwich made with bread butts was calling my name.
Seriously, I love the butt ends of my favorite bread. They are the best.
After eating anything and everything in sight since the marathon Sunday (including way too much chocolate, NuttZo and an entire bag of Love Grown Foods granola), it was time yesterday to throw in a salad for lunch again.
I love using Scotty B’s Sweet Bacon Jalapeño sauce as a dressing.
So so good.
Quest Bar of the day yesterday was coconut cashew.
It did not disappoint.
So, yeah, I really wanted a whole day to rest and recover from the marathon, but that didn’t happen yesterday with my schedule. I was hurting a bit, but knew I had to teach a class. And, well, nothing motivates like new, bright spring colored shoes, yes?
Bring in the Sublite Train 1.0.
I’m always sure to wear different shoes for training and indoor classes than I do for running. It’s really important when you’re doing various fitness activities with a lot of different movements (especially lateral movements), to have a good cross training shoe.
Key product features/benefits of the Sublite Train 1.0:
- A shoe with the lightweight feel and agility you need for training without sacrificing the durability and cushioning.
- Litefuse upper construction offers lightweight structural support that won’t way you down.
- Medial support harness keeps your foot centered for stability
- 3D SubLite foam midsole for lightweight cushioning that is responsive and durable
- Raised dual density heel counter for the added stability you need for lateral workout movements
- Carbon rubber strategically placed on high wear areas of outsole
I wore these yesterday to teach my BOSU class.
I loved the lightweight feel of them. Heavy shoes are not good on those darn BOSU balls. They also provided just enough lateral support for all the different drills we were doing (jumping, lunges, jacks, etc.).
My first test class in them was a success. I’m going to break them in a few more times and then give another update, but I really like them so far.
And heck, could they be any cuter? Especially for spring?
So yesterday we ventured out to the local Farmer’s Market. That’s what you’re supposed to do for spring, right?
I really wanted some hummus, but after trying to explain to both my boys why it’s not okay to double dip in public, we had to get away from that stand pretty quickly.
Unfortunately, jalapeños (or any other kind of chili peppers) were nowhere to be found. The guy told me that it wasn’t the right season. Dang it.
But, we did score this bad boy for just $3.
How awesome is that? So much bigger than the size of a kabocha squash I could buy for the same price.
Weird that the boys didn’t touch it. Oh well, I guess I’ll just try again tonight. We have just a little bit to get through. Ha.
And….. I finally got a good night’s sleep last night. It was much needed. I know I’ve talked about the importance of sleep on here a bunch of times, but I saw this article about how lack of sleep can age fat cells and lead to weight gain yesterday so I decided nothing was more important than getting to bed early last night. (Even watching The Biggest Loser finale, which I have yet to watch.)
Okay, I’m off. Have a great first day of Spring!
