Weekend Fun & Weekday Anticipations
Hey guys! Tuesday is upon us...here's to a great rest of the week! And if you're looking for a great core workout today, look no further than over on Lindsay's blog for today's Tuesday Trainer edition of core work. I was unable to get my act together to post a video, but there's plenty of good ones to choose from there from lots of wonderful women! Check it out and strengthen that core!
Thanks to those of you who commented and tweeted about my Zensah leg sleeves post - I loved sharing my thoughts with you! I wore my sleeves AGAIN today for a good workout - my calves needed the extra support and I was happy to give them a little snug hug in my Carolina blue babies.
Saturday morning after my favorite weekend clients, I headed out to the mall to meet my fellow personal trainers from work for a little shopping spree! Our uniforms are lululemon tops and black pants/capris and every now and then Fifth Avenue Club gives us some money towards clothes (helpful and so generous!). So we got a few work-related clothes and then I picked up this new workout top too...I love it! A fun, cute tank top that I feel great in, and I think it's wonderful to feel great before, during, and after a workout. lulu's clothes are expensive, but the quality of the material and the fit is worth it for a few items!
Later Saturday we headed to our friend's Craig and Mandi's house for an evening of hanging out. We had a great, healthy meal and the proceeded to go buy gummies and cookie dough for a movie at their place - gotta cave to the goods every now and then when it's movie time!
You know it!
We didn't want to leave their house (and are currently in the midst of planning for a sleepover some weekend soon! ) but had to head home to get up early Sunday morning for a Survive & Thrive Expeditions ski day at Lake Louise! A group of young adult cancer survivors and supporters met at Wellspring in Calgary and bussed up to the hill for a gorgeous, fun day of spring skiing. A special thanks to Peter Anderson, a survivor and incredible skier who just started chemo again for his brain tour the day after our event, for organizing the event! Thanks also to the incredible team of ski instructors who volunteered their day to ski with us, our friends Ryan & Elisa (and their adorable baby Bryce) who helped volunteer, and to Lake Louise for the tickets and rentals! What a great, inspiring day.
Monday was a great day at work: 2 at-home clients then to the gym for the afternoon/early evening and then three of my favorite girls to train at night before heading home for an 8 pm dinner. LATE for me! But the new(ish) norm around here. Thankful for work, the ability to help motivate and encourage, a good team to work with, and a chance to workout at work! #noexcuses Today it was all about a quick & effective workout: intervals on the treadmill and core work on the mat (first round speed, second round inclines, third round speed). It was great! Left me sweaty and d.o.n.e.
Funky outfit cred goes to: lululemon (on top), my NorthFace running shorts, Zensah leg sleeves, & New Balance shoes.
Looking forward to some full days of work, good people interaction, celebrating the 10+ year members at a party with work later this week, and a few times with friends interspersed throughout the days.
Hopefully more workouts that leave me like this after they're done:
From a weekend Tabata workout Saturday: cardio & core, 20 sec on, 10 sec off for 16 total minutes of different moves! I.love.to.move.
What are you looking forward to this week?
Any good workouts planned?
And most importantly, if you could have ANY snack during a movie, what would it be? For me it's all about licorice/Nibs/Wine Gums...I love the gummies.
Have a great Tuesday and I'll connect with you guys soon! Live well & be well,
