21 Jul Busy Monday & A Workout!
Ahhh here we are back at Monday. How do the weekends go by so fast? This Monday is okay though. I have a crazy jammed pack week full of fun clients & lots of yoga subbing and before I know it we have 3, no, make that 4 special visitors coming this weekend! One of my beautiful best friends, Jennifer, will be stopping in on Thursday and then my Mom, Dad, and Sammie – my puppy dog – will be visiting for the weekend! Cannot wait!
This morning started with a 4:50am wake up call for a 6:00am client. I stopped back at home before my next session at 8:30 and made a smoothie bowl & packed my lunch.
Breakfast was a green smoothie (almond milk, spinach, protein powder, 1/2 banana, chia, cinnamon) bowl topped with One Degree Organic Foods Veganic Sprouted Brown Rice Cacao Crisps. How’s that for a mouthful? Plus blueberries & a dollop of almond butter.
Lunch between clients, which is without a picture, was egg salad (hardboiled eggs & avocado) and a delish juicy peach. I finished the day teaching two yoga classes and then came home to fantastic dinner prepared by Bri.
A simple perfect summer meal – BBQ chicken breast & grilled squash & zucchini.
And lastly, before my eyes close on me, I wanted to share a quick workout with you. For some reason, this time of year is super busy, so my workouts have to be quick & efficient. I always explain to people you don’t have to be in the gym for hours to get in a good workout or be fit. Who the heck has time for that anyways? If you have 20 – 30 minutes, that’s all you need to get in a quality workout. Of course, I do love a 60 or 90 minute yoga class and to take my time, but sometimes it just doesn’t always happen that way!
Here is a quick pyramid workout that only requires a couple of dumbbells.

- 45 jumping jacks
- 40 squats
- 35 chest presses

25 bent over rows
