Happy short work week everyone! Just knowing that I only had to work 4 days this week made it way easier to roll out of bed this morning. Anyone else?
I’m cheers-ing (questionable verb) my coffee cup to you right now
A few fun things that happened this past weekend:
I made this AMAZING fresh roll recipe that I found on Pinterest. I’ll be making it again not only because it’s super delicious, but because the rice paper wrappers came in a package of 100. Gotta use those bad boys up!
Managed to sneak in some HIIT and a quick yoga session on Saturday morning. Felt so good to hit the mat again.
My sister and I hit up Target to so I could find a cheap but cute bathing suit for our upcoming vacay to Palm Springs. Mission accomplished! I got the one pictured above plus a pair of plain black bottoms for mixing and matching with some tops that I already have. As much as I love some of the cute swimsuits I find online, I love being able to actually try the bathing suit on before purchasing. Plus, things take forever to ship to Canada and returning is a big hassle.
Can you tell I’m going through an online return process right now? ;)
Mike and I took his niece and nephew to see Frozen at the cheap theatres last night. It was my first time seeing Frozen and I think this was their 100+ viewing. Kids freaking LOVE this movie. There was a little girl losing her mind dancing in the theatre.
If you couldn't tell from the title of this post, I've also had Let It Go stuck in my head ever since...
Our surfset instructor added a super fun element to class this weekend – hula hoops! I’ve been hula hooping wrong my whole life...you’re suppose to pump your hips, not move them in a circle. Twenty five years of wrong technique! Once I knew that vital piece of info, I was hula hooping like a champ. It was super fun and challenging to do it on the surfset board. Core workout galore!
Mike and I picked up some Yurbuds for running and biking. I’ve heard nothing but great things about these headphones so I’m really excited to give them a try. I love that you can hear things around you with them in. I’ve been spooked by a biker whizzing by me on more than one occasion when I’ve been out running because I couldn’t heard them coming.
Week Prep and Workout Schedule
I did my food prep last night after we came home from the movie. This week’s food supplies:
-2 batches of Tone It Up’s blueberry zest muffins
-shredded chicken breasts (boneless skinless chicken breast + jar of salsa + crockpot for 8 hours)
-peeled and cut carrot sticks
These are all things that I use for my lunches. Breakfasts are still smoothies and dinners are made fresh.
This week’s workout schedule:
Monday: teach zumba; run 25 mins
Tuesday: teach zumba
Wednesday: teach zumba; run 30 mins; strength
Thursday: swim 30 mins
Saturday: swim 20 mins; bike 30 mins
Sunday: bike 45 mins
There’s no surfset class for the next two weeks because of Easter. Sad face. I’m really digging that class!
Was there a movie from your childhood that you watched over and over again? Mine was Cinderella
I'm off to go listen to Let It Go in hopes that it gets out of my head. I’ll see you guys later this week!
