Hiii! How’s your St. Patrick’s Day going?? To get into the spirit, I played two St. Patrick’s Day-ish songs during spin last night:
1) “Whiskey in the Jar” (standing climb with tempo work)
2) “Lord of the Dance.” This was the last song of class, and everyone seemed to get a kick out of it. It was PERFECT for half moderate climb, half crazy sprint to the end, and a festive way to change up the playlist.
For our viewing pleasure:
(the version I played for class was different -it’s the last one from the soundtrack, with taps- but you get the idea)
Random fact: my Irish dance teacher from back in the day BEAT Michael Flatley in the World Irish Dance Championship in 1989.
It’s been a good St. Paddy’s Day so far. Hand therapy was AMAZING -I’m so so happy I’m finally able to go, and it’s helping so much- and then I had a lovely morning with my favorite little leprechaun. She helped me make the brownie cupcakes, which we’ll top with Bailey’s frosting (for the adults) and spinach-dyed green frosting for the kiddos.
Quintessential green beverage:
(juice with green apple, spinach, cucumber, celery, ginger, lemon and mint)
Lunch was leftover tuna salad from yesterday, served in an avocado. Liv went crazy for it, too! Ok, so at first she was a little skeptical (because, let’s be real, it kind of looks like cat food).
Then, I told her that Ariel from The Little Mermaid LOVES tuna. She happily ate a bowl full, while I realized what I’d just said. Ariel eats her friends. Mom fail.
