I made smoothies both yesterday and today. They look the same, but today’s was better. Coconut milk, chocolate Garden of Life protein powder, and fresh mint from the garden. Really yummy!
I made a simple tofu stir fry, ate the last of the tofu curry with cauliflower rice, made a salad, and then made a great dinner tonight with a Beyond Meat Brat, spiralized zucchini, cherry tomatoes, some spices, and finished off with red wine vinegar.
So totally exciting news! I GOT A ROWER. I’ve wanted one for quite some time and the person I mentioned that we swap our workout heart rates from our app – he works out on one.
I got the NordicTrack RW900. Think Peloton, but with a rower. It came on Friday while I was on my way out, but my youngest put it together for me so I could use it yesterday!
It comes with a year if iFit family, so me and all the kids have our own profiles. I’m doing the intro series to be sure I get my form down and not get injured, but I cannot express how excited I am!
Yesterday’s class was really about form and drills to get the form down. I’m doing the 4 week intro series. I’ll admit, today I felt I could’ve gone much harder, but I also don’t want to do too much, too soon or sacrifice form and get injured. So – I did the class (which included getting off the rower halfway through to do some core work and squats). And then I went for a run!
My yoga studio did a 5 day yoga immersion last week that I did all of the classes for. It was less about the physical activity of yoga, and more on the mental. Really good and glad I did it.
It’s really been a great weekend.
Friday I went to a socially distant happy hour with friends. It was a lot of fun.
Saturday was playing with the rower and then doing school work mostly, and some cooking. Though at 2 I had a FaceTime date with my friend G in New York. She had spent the day in the garden and we spent just over an hour catching up.
Today was really busy. I mentioned in my last post about wanting to get back to my typical organization, so that’s how I started my day. That’s how I’m used to starting my Sundays, so it felt good to get back to it. I prepped my calendar for the week, made my goals, and did my bullet journal for today. Then it was time to meditate.
Then I spent a few hours reviewing the CARES and PREP acts as well as FDA guidance on PPE’s (personal protective equipment) to develop some guidelines for us. I ended up with more questions than answers, but that’s okay.
After that, I started laundry and then worked out. Shower, school, dinner, and then sat outside reading for about an hour.
I like going into this week feeling more organized with a set of goals each day. It certainly makes me make better use of my time!
