A Brush with the Ex

Hi everyone! Happy Indian Food Wednesday! Who’s celebrating?! Since I had Indian food yesterday, the girls and I are hitting up another restaurant tonight to celebrate a friend’s birthday- should be a blasty.

Thank you so much to all of you who entered the Ani Phyo cookbook giveaway!

So, in between training appointments last night, I had a small interaction with the ex: running. I really wasn’t sure if I was prepared to see him, especially since I was in my gym clothes and didn’t look my best 😉

Surprisingly, it felt good to see running. He was cordial, and we briefly chatted.

For dinner, I wasn’t really hankering for anything –still happy from my Indian feast!- so I had a massive bowl of massaged kale salad (I may have sang to the kale as I massaged away) with Garlic Gold, Nama Shoyu, sea salt, olive oil, rice wine vinegar and cayenne.

Weird combo, I know. I need to hit up the grocery store ASAP 😀

While I was rummaging in the pantry for overnight oat supplies, I found this sample package that was sent to me:

Chlorella Tablets


Has anyone used these before? I’m going to do some research but I’m not sure if I’ll take these tablets. I’m a little apprehensive about taking something that closely resembles the name of an Oregon Trail disease 😉

I put this bowl of joy into the fridge to be waiting for me this morning:

overnight oats

-1 C almond milk

-1/2 C oats

-1 T chia seeds

This morning, all I had to do was add:

-1/2 scoop Sun Warrior

-blueberries and banana

-1/2 T maca

overnight oats

Perfect 😀

I’m off to practice yoga, then train a client and teach bootcamp!

Have a fabulous day <3



Today’s tip: Before you go to bed at night, have a tentative plan for what your eats will be for the day and prep anything you can in advance. (Obviously, I haven’t been doing that this week! Haha) It really does make it easier to make healthy choices when you’re prepared and have a plan.

    Chlorella is Awesome!!! I highly recommend you try it! I actually feel very calm and balanced when I take it! Don’t be afraid it is a very nutritious green food! <3

    Hey, this is a kind of random question but I need all the help I can get and I totally trust your advice. I’m taking my NASM exam AND have an interview at a new gym being built in my area next Tuesday. So I was wondering if you had any advice on how to do well in my interview or knew of what typical questions were in a PT interview. I don’t know exactly what to expect since I’m new to the fitness industry so ANY advice would be very helpful! Thank you!

      dress like you want to OWN the gym, not just work there- business professional
      focus on why you would be an asset to their gym
      smile, be confident, be professional- they’ll probably ask why you want to work there, about your experience, strengths, qualifications, etc
      ask questions during the interview, too

    Just went to this post to print the treadmill workout and the name of the post immediately reminded me of Mya’s ‘Case of the Ex’ – a seriously classic 90s jam. Thanks for bringing this song into my Sunday morning 🙂
