Happy Monday!

Yes, I know I have a blog and that updates have been scarce. However, I'm back and ready to update you on my life and what's to come!

First, I've been approved to be a BurnThis ambassador! In a nutshell, BurnThis is Instagram/Pinterest for health nerds like myself. There are also challenges you can partake in to win prizes from different brands. I'm so excited to be able to share all of my healthy living pictures with the BurnThis community!

Second, I'm already up to lesson 5 in my nutrition course and am learning so much. I can't wait to be a nutritionist and help others live a healthy lifestyle. Keri Glassman and I share a lot of the same views on food, supplements and health living so it has really been great. 

Third, training has really been sucking. I'm not sure if it's my body- I haven't been sleeping or eating the best- or the cold. I've completed the miles but there is stopping and huffing and puffing and my splits are nowhere near where they need to be to get that sub-2 I was hoping for. Here's to hoping the next few weeks are better!

Fourth, I have been trying so many new recipes! I will be bringing those back to the blog shortly and will probably share on my nutrition site when it launches. I was also considered starting a YouTube channel to walk you through the yummy recipes I make that can be made after work. What are your thoughts on that?

After a fun-filled weekend home for a friends baby shower, it's time to relax and watch the Oscars!

Training Week 3

Yes, I'm a little behind. It's been a hellish week and it's only Wednesday. I am so ready for February to be over! 

I did get back on my workout game though. Snow and ice have taken over city sidewalks so the runs are scarce but the workouts have been happening. Here's a little recap from last Thursday through today and my plan through Sunday. I know I missed a week but it sucked anyway! Your regularly scheduled program should be back on Monday!

  • Thursday - Acroyoga. I had a really bad cold and was planning on only spotting but I ended up feeling better by the end of the day and am so glad because we did a series of poses I had never done before!
  • Sunday - 6 mile run. I did my run around Astoria and was fighting through ice and a cold. The cold air made breathing easier but my nose was still running like crazy. I skipped brunch so I could lay down and rest for the day. The run overall was OK. Definitely slower than usual but I anticipate once the ice is gone and I'm better, I'll be where I want to be. 
[My breakfast game was on point]
  • Monday -  Yoga at Exhale. I felt really strong and the stretch felt AMAZING!
  • Tuesday - Spin at Peloton. The consensus from yesterday was that if you worked at a PR firm you essentially wanted to kill yourself by the end of the day. I was no exception and to get rid of the day I spun my heart out and burned 500 calories. That's important because the bike tracker usually only says 400 ish. That's how you know it was a bad day.
Up for the rest of the week:
  • Thursday - Acro
  • Saturday - 7 mile run (+ coffee with some bloggers)
  • Sunday - Class at Body Space Fitness

What's on your schedule this week?
