I’m gym-shopping, of sorts. I don’t really need to join a gym, as my exercise of choice is running, and I’m able to do that outside or on our home treadmill. I also have free weights in the right sizes, and I could get by with just what I have! However, I really enjoy group fitness, and don’t love the idea of bouncing around from one studio to the next for different class types (barre, yoga, Les Miles classes etc.). The gym I tried out yesterday (and will continue to try out for the next week or so on a guest pass) was GREAT. They offer 90 fitness classes a week – including barre, yoga, pilates, boot camps, zumba, cycling etc. Just what I’m looking for! However, I arrived in the middle of a class time, so I wasn’t able to join in. Instead, I hopped on a treadmill, ran 3.5 miles at an 8:30 pace, and then completed the following upper body workout 3 times through:
I’m excited to keep going back to this new-to-me gym and hope to attend some group fitness classes this week! After my workout, I returned home and had a big ole bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. Nothing special, but I snapped a pic anyways!
And then comes another awkward “outfit of the day” selfie that I HAD to share with y’all cause I’m super proud of my $15 shoe purchase. Yes, you heard it, those bad boys were $15 on clearance at my local Target!Top: Francesca’s Boutique; Denim: Zara; Shoes: Target
After work, I was so excited to go to Derek’s family’s house for dinner! His sister, Davis, arrived home from Auburn yesterday after taking her LAST college exam ever! I’m SO jealous, and I can’t wait to be in her shoes in a little under a month. Derek’s mom prepared literally the best salmon I think I’ve had in my entire life.
I’m not sure of the exact recipe, but I know it was marinated in sesame oil, soy sauce, and some other ingredients, and cooked on a cedar plank. I’ll make sure to ask for the recipe soon!
Happy Hump Day, Everyone!
