Is Wednesday the day of rain? Such a gloomy drive to work, especially when there’s not an accident in sight yet blinking red lights are everywhere from people slamming on their breaks..okay, I’m done.
I finally went to Trader Joe’s after work yesterday! There’s some things I prefer to buy there then at a regular grocery store; fruit and veggies are cheaper without sacrificing quality, nuts are inexpensive, and the cheese selection is huge! I love the Shredded Mexican blend in my scrambled eggs and have missed its gooeyness so much that I believe that’s the reason I couldn’t sleep last night..I was anticipating breakfast this morning . Other things I purchased:
- multigrain bread. really hardy and stands up to chicken salad without becoming soggy
- grilled chicken breast for chicken salad
- raw, toasted almonds
- sweet potato crinkle chips. a.m.a.z.e.b.a.l.l.s.
- peanut butter-filled pretzels
- (2) pizza al pollo asado. a mexican-style pizza with a corn masa crust, grilled chicken, refried beans, jack cheese, and tomatillo salsa. the flavors complement each-other, a little spicy, and so tender you can cut it with a fork- for $1.99!
$34? A synonym of a bargain shopper.
Body Sculpt & Balance review: we used a stability ball, heavy and medium dumbbells, a thera-band, and a mat. Basic strength training exercises but with a balance challenge at some point during the move; for example: squats with a knee lift, upper body work on the stability ball, single-leg curls, and closing your eye (very challenging-I recommend closing one at a time first!) I really love basic body sculpting classes. Maybe it’s because that’s my speciality but the exercises you can do in a toning class are limitless and it’s a chance as an instructor to educate your participants.
Step I.T. was great as usual! Loved the combinations the instructor put together; they were self-reversing, so both right and left sides were balanced out. The strength moves were the usuals.
Yoga Challenge was a challenge for my delts! Holy moly. I guess it didn’t help that both the instructor and I took Step I.T. beforehand because down-dog was super tough to hold for
a breathlong periods of time. This wasn’t necessarily my favorite yoga class since it didn’t flow from one pose to another rather, it was how hard can we make a series. It’s good to change it up though so I’ll be attending this sporadically, but stick to yoga flow or stretch.
I received my group fitness class schedule for June; 1 Interval Training class, 2 Body Sculpt classes, and 1 Step I.T.; super pumped about all of them. I need to practice step..help me!
The rest of the day I’ll be observing Cycle & Sculpt and Aqua Kickboxing. Have a great hump day!
