Getting out of my head with health and fitness

Hi! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a lovely afternoon. Happy you liked the list for this month! Thank you for all of the new recipes to try, too. To celebrate October, we made a trip to Costco for the famous $5.99 pie. It’s everything I remembered. 

We’re still having a blast with the nanas, and went to check out Rancho’s last night. Rancho’s is a quaint Mexican spot with tons of vegan options. Bonus: they serve breakfast all day. They also have a full salad bar + kombucha on the menu! Pretty sure I’d never see that at a Mexican restaurant. The service was amazingly fast, and I especially loved the decor, aka the way I’d decorate my house if my husband approved ;)

Enchilada, rice, beans, ‘rita. All things that are good.

Workout-wise, I’ve been starting the day with a little bit of movement, to continue on the Mountain Trek habits. It’s been nice to ride the spin bike leisurely while watching Scandal (oh, Mellie! And JAKE. Wow. Haha), or get it a good stretch before starting in the email and work blitz before Liv wakes up. It changes based on what I’m teaching: if I have an intense class to teach later, I’ll do some stretches and meditation or take the pups for a walk; if I’m off, I’ll do more cardio or HIIT-related stuff. While short in duration, these morning activities have been a great way to start the day.

I’ve been thinking about how I’ve changed my ways with health and fitness over the past couple of years, and realized the major determining factor: I got out of my own head.

something a group fitness certification won’t teach you

your group fitness cert wont teach you.jpg

Once upon a time -I’m being vague here because I don’t want to directly call out the company/studio- some blogging friends and I went to take a fitness class as part of an event. The studio knew we were bloggers, were wonderfully kind and accommodating, and made a point to let the instructor know that […]

“When you expect less, you get more”

 = my Yoda-esque wisdom for the day.  (Also, can you believe I’ve never seen Star Wars? The Pilot is always teasing me about it. There are a lot of classic movies that have missed my radar.) This morning I was off on a 10-mile run.  It’s not a personal distance record, and it wasn’t fast […]

  Making : a tentative plan for the next few months. There’s a lot going on with the holidays, Livi’s birthday, Winter Shape Up and the move! Before I know it, it will be spring, we’ll be settled in San Diego and surrounded by gorgeous ocean. It’s going to be glorious.   Cooking : Grilled […]

The countdown is on

It’s hard to believe that my half marathon is less than a month away! It simultaneously feels like it crept up on me and like it took forever to get here.  Even though I’ve followed training plans in the past, this is my first time really training. I ran with a running group, learned about proper […]

Wine date

I love when fellow blogger friends have posts like this, so I thought it would be fun to have another little virtual wine date. So let me pour you a glass of red (Jam Jar Shiraz or maybe a mocktail if you’re not into wine) and here are the things I’d chat with you about […]

“Before 30″ bucket list

Hi friends <3 Thank you so much for your amazing response to this morning’s post. It’s way too easy to get into the comparison trap game and at the end of the day, how fast we run, how much we lift, how well we Zumba… it doesn’t really matter. I’m loving all of your amazing […]
