Happy Monday, guys! If you live on the east coast are you preparing for the blizzard that’s coming our way? How do you ready yourself? Do you have a go-to storm shopping list? I’m already stir crazy just thinking about the weather. I was going to bear witness to the madness at my local Whole Foods, but Matt assures me we can walk to Shun Lee in case of emergency.
New Yorkers: Do you order in during a storm? It’s a city-dwellers ethical dilemma.
Last week was a great one and it ended with my first-ever Cycle for Survival experience.
Happy Monday! Did you have a long weekend? Did you do anything fun? I spent the weekend in Great Barrington, Massachusetts (I had a hair and make up trial for my wedding!!!). Here’s how I spent the last week in workouts.
Tuesday: Lyon’s Den Power Yoga hour-long class with Matt (Hey, it was Valentine’s Day!) They played power ballads and it was taught by John Murray who was an awesome instructor. Sign me up for more.
Happy Thursday! How was your week? Just looking at last week’s recap make me tired. There was so much I wanted to do and I wore myself out doing it.
Here’s what I got into:
Monday: Barry’s Bootcamp (arms and abs day with Patrick Frost)
Wednesday: 4-mile morning run in Central Park
beautiful morning run around the reservoir
In earlyish October, I wrote about a bunch of fitness challenges happening at NYC studios. I knew I wanted to try one one, and I decided to go with Refine Method’s Take 2. Basically I took two Refine classes a week and received a discounted rate on classes.
Here’s what I thought:
Oh hello. Does anyone have any tips for not binge eating over the holidays? I don’t have a single one. It’s been cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner over here. All of my protein intake comes from the whole milk I use in hot chocolate, so that’s nice. Balance?
Monday: Soulcycle theme ride with my sister. (The theme was Taylor Swift vs Her Exes). I didn’t love this class, I’ll be honest. I hate how cramped the room is at the 77th Street studio. The rider-in-front-of-me’s ass is unavoidably in my face. I don’t feel like there is any room to do the arm work (at least not with my wingspan). I loved hanging with Jill though. Also,is it basic to go to a Taylor Swift-themed Soul class then get salads with your sister? Asking for a friend.
Sweetgreen with Jill
