Hi Everyone. Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. There’s still time to enter the raffle to win $25 to REI. What do you have to lose?
Now for this week’s workout diary!
Every time I worked out last week
Monday: I took a walk in Jamaica State Park in Vermont with the ski crew. The trail was a sheet of ice. The first thing I thought when got out of the car was: “Oh, here is where I sprain my ankle.” But luckily no such accident occurred.

Good morning! Hello from the other side of a busy week. (For what it’s worth, I like being busy.)
Last weekend, I took a trip to the west coast to visit my best girl Natalie, who recently became a mom! I flew to San Francisco with friends Simone and Jamie to meet baby Ellie and pay her mom a visit and it turned into a really special weekend! But before we get into that, this week’s recap.
Song of the week: “Alors On Danse (feat. Kanye West)” by Stromae
Athleisure Mag invited me to try IMAXShift a new spin studio in Dumbo. I was not paid to write this post, but I was invited to attend this event and class for free.
IMAXShift is a hip new spin studio in Dumbo. They have a unique take on the traditional 45-minute cycling class. The bikes are set up stadium-style, facing a giant, Imax screen.
Hi lovelies. How was your week?
Does anyone else read Leo Babauta’s Zen Habits blog? It’s on my Feedly feed, but I don’t read it every week. But I happen to take a look recently, and a post really hit home for me. I’ve been feeling a bit stressed. (I wrote about it here.) Leo wrote about his method for dealing with stress and I thought it was worth sharing.
In other news, I want to start sharing a song of the week with these weekly fitness rundowns. Interested? Great. Let’s start right now.
This week’s tune: “I’m glad I hitched my apple wagon to your star” by The Boy Least Likely To
It’s not new, but I re-found it and re-fell in love with it. It’s upbeat and has a unique yet catchy sound.
Now for our regularly scheduled recap:
Monday: I took a class called “Endurance” at Uplift Studios. It was a fabulously fun and challenging workout. Lot’s of jumping around and tons of strength work with weights. Also, great 90s music.
This week was a lot of fun, but now I’m pretty tired and my constitution is 90% sugar. I used up my 10 classes at ClassPass about a week before my CP cycle ended. ClassPass users, have you been going through your allotted amount ahead of schedule? Or is 10 classes per month a good amount for you?
I also have some pretty cool news. Cuckoolemon was chosen as one of Feedspot’s top 100 Fitness Blogs. Thanks, Feedspot!
And now, for this week’s workouts and some really silly photos:
