I LOVE SATURDAYS.
I start the day with coffee and my blueberry oatmeal:
I use a 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of almond milk(sometimes 3/4) a drizzle of honey and sprinkle of cinnamon. It's super yummy and gives me energy for my workouts.
In Jump and Drill I find myself getting really frustrated with some of my moves, specifically my backside kick. We have our back to the pad, take one step backwards and kick while moving. My brain cannot handle such moves, even after a year of taking this class I cannot perfect it. So I have two goals for the New Year (so far) be able to do 100 perfect push-ups:right now I can do 10 and 90 messy ones, and work on my kicks.
Power X was brutal. It was windy and 54 degrees, but felt 38 to me. We did a bunch of new moves. On the ropes we had to do the chariot on one leg for :45 seconds, each side. I could not keep my balance to save my life, but the second time around I felt a little more stable. TRX was also tough because it involved moves on one leg as well. By the end of the 30 minutes I was exhausted, but no matter how hard that class is, I always walk away feeling stronger than the week before. I think that's why I keep signing myself up for what some would call "torture."
After Power X I had my weekly Starbucks date with Lauren, Grande coffee in a venti cup with pumpkin spice please!
I spent the remainder of my afternoon alternating doing laundry and watching Harry Potter movies on the couch with these guys:
How cute are they?! I mean I know every mom says that about their "kids" but mine are really cute!
Saturday night is date night. The best night of the week, if you ask me. Eddie and I went to the Walt Whitman mall because I was on the hunt for a pair of J Crew moccasins I saw online
J Crew, 38.50
of course they didn't have them and I was heartbroken, but that's why they invented online shopping!
We roamed around the mall for an hour or so before heading to dinner at Kodiak's where I had the most delicious Black Bean & Corn burger topped with fresh salsa, a slice of swiss cheese and avacado.
(i also took it off the bun and had maybe a handful of the fries, WILLPOWER!)
After dinner we went to Target because my hunt for moccasins was not over, I am not exactly sure what my obsession is with mocs these days but I wasn't going down without a fight. By the way, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Target, it is my favorite place to go and just walk around.
I left Eddie alone for a few minutes and this is what I came back to, gotta love him.
Candy Cane antlers?
I was SO excited they had holiday mugs out already. I picked these two up for mom and I to have our morning coffee in.
FOUND A PAIR! They're not as pretty as the J Crew ones but they were half the price and are a great alternative until I can get my hands on the ones I really want.
All in all it was a great day!
Just Keep Sweating
