Sweat Sessions

I woke up at 6 am this morning and started baking Runner’s Scones for breakfast. These are AMAZING – and keep you satisfied well into lunch time.

I headed out to Moga for their 9 am Slow Flow yoga class. I arrived about ten minutes early and quickly realized that I was going to be the only participant. At first, I thought class may be canceled since no one else had showed but Emily, one of the owners, allowed me to stay and enjoy a one-on-one yoga sesh with her!

It was a great class. I think sometimes people get the idea that “slow flow” classes are easy. This was definitely not the case. The room was heated and I was sweating like a (down)dog! We held poses like side angle, bow, and side plank for what seemed like an eternity. My body was shaking and I definitely felt like I was pushing my limits.

We did a lot of poses that I find to be very relaxing as well, like pigeon and sitting hamstring stretches. Overall, I found it to be a very well rounded class. The perfect combination of challenging and relaxing.

If you live in Charlotte, I encourage you to visit Moga and take a class!

After yoga, I headed to Trader Joe’s to pick up some food for the week. I saw they were selling BIG bottles of Chocolate (my favorite!) Coconut water and had to pick one up.

When I got home, I was in the mood for another workout. Peanut Butter Runner posted a Crossfit workout she did yesterday. It looked hard and didn’t require any equipment.

Here’s the workout:

1 mile run
“Invisible Fran” for time

Which is air squats and push ups in reps of 21-15-9.

Then do it all again!

Here are my stats:

Mile 1 – 7:54
Invisible Fran 1 – 2:34
Mile 2 – 7:18
Invisible Fran 2 – 2:34

Total workout time: 20:22

After the mile runs, my legs felt like jello doing the squats!

Thanks so much Jen for sharing this workout! I loved it! 

After the workout, I went back to the apartment and made lunch:

Egg scramble with green bell pepper, tortilla chips, and black bean and corn salsa

At first, I was eating it with a fork, then I realized eating it like nachos was way more fun.

Scrambled Egg Nachos

I think I need to take a shower now…
