Hey guys! What another good week! You happy it’s Friday (is that even a valid question to ask)?
(source; Casual Friday, ha!)
It’s that time again for a confessions post! A few things came to my mind over the week so I thought I’d write ’em out, share them with you and hope that you follow suit and confess some things too. 😉
Sometimes the only workout I get in a day is a walk to my client’s house or across the street to the drug store. It’s true! People assume I workout all the time, but I don’t! I probably get in 4-5 “real” workouts a week (depending on how my body’s feeling and sometimes including weekend trips hiking or skiing in the back country). Take yesterday, for example. My traps were SO tight and sore from yesterday’s workout that all I could muster on a run-around day was 15 minutes of the stair master. And that was fine! I’ll get back at it today. 😉
(To see what I, along with Kindal and Ashton did that made me so sore, check out my description on my Instagram video! Hint: it was 3 different 12 min AMRAP circuits)
I eat bread. I love it! Definitely not Paleo, but I don’t eat tons (that’s when I feel the bloating and heaviness) but when I eat it I enjoy it. My favorite includes fresh french or sourdough bread dipped in balsamic and olive oil and the cheap-o butter rolls that I always fight Mikey buying but that I secretly love when he buys…They are so good. 🙂
Sometimes I prefer sleeping in to early morning workouts. Okay, most the time I do. I workout best in the late mornings or afternoons (never after “work hours”). Sometimes I feel guilty when I haven’t run 10 miles on a Saturday morning before 6 am (those check-ins on Instagram and Twitter can get the best of ya if you’re not careful!), but then I remember that my body is different and I don’t need to compare myself to others. Plus, I know if we ever have kids those Saturday mornings won’t be “mine” and Mikey’s to enjoy with a slow cup of coffee anymore!
(in New York at a great brunch spot on our last morning there!)
Although the countries are very similar, there are things in Canada that just aren’t the same as in the United States. Take, for example, the Target liquidation sale that started yesterday. It was…unimpressive. As much as I love this store (and was so excited, along with many Canadians, when it came to Canada), it is NOT the same here as it is the States. The deals weren’t as good and the stock was never fresh and as available as it was in the US (the merchandise came out much later here after I’d seen people rave about some cute stuff there). BUT, all that to say, it always was like a piece of home when I went to Target and I imagined strolling around with nothing to do with my mom for fun, picking things up, thinking about them and putting them back. So when I got to the first day of sale in between clients today at 12 pm, the store (which was full of people! I know my schedule is weird but don’t other people work?!) was picked over at just 10 – 30% off…that’s no liquidation sale. I got some cheap shaving cream (always good to have on hand), some floss (2 for 1!), mascara and eye liner and some Vanilla Cupcake Goldfish for Mikey as a surprise for the weekend. …Pretty exciting. 😉 And yet…I still love Target! Just not here.
While I do buy things like goldfish and eat bread (the horrors!), I also enjoy some stereotypical “healthy person” things. Like, every morning I have half a lemon squeezed into warm water with some cayenne pepper (not too much!), some cinnamon, and apple cider vinegar. So many benefits as this alkalizes your system and wakes your body up! Check out this article my friend Amy shared on Facebook that shares 25 ways that apple cider vinegar will change your life from Leah! Love that stuff.
And that’s about it for today! Confess something! And I always love Monica’s Thursday Confessions too so I thought I’d link her up here too. 😉 Any fun weekend plans? I’m subbing a few classes for my friends’ at their studio and having 2 girls’ nights! It’s gonna be a fun one.
Welp, short and sweet for Friday! Catch ya later, friends. Live well & be well!
