In case you missed it, I had a live chat on YouTube featuring my experience so far as a student with IIN. Some of you left questions on a previous post and I did answer all of them. The video is 23 minutes long, so apologies if you just want the answer to one quick question. Check the comments on the video on YouTube to see if I already answered if you have a new one.
This morning I took Aly’s class at Recycle Studio. It’s becoming one of my favorite Friday rituals. While the class is 45 minutes long, I burn about 550 calories during and an additional 150 while making breakfast. I was in the mood for something salty so I made an omelet with kale and tomato with a side of Ezekial toast with 2 teaspoons of peanut butter. I used 1 full egg and two egg whites.
At class, Aly told me that one of my favorite Recycle desk gals, Natalie was injured in a bike accident on Saturday. Nat works at Lululemon on Newbury and is a runner but also has gone through the Recycle instructor mentorship program. She suffered a concussion and broke her ankle so luckily she should have a full recovery but for someone so active, the next couple of months are going to challenging. Coincidentally, yesterday I signed up for a yearly membership to Hubway, the shared bike program in Boston that Natalie was using. I bought the helmet for the additional $20 and despite not wearing one for the past year on my beach cruiser, I will be dedicated to wearing one moving forward. Natalie, if you see this, I’m wishing you a speedy recovery! xoxo.
While I did not personally know anyone that was injured in the Marathon bombing, my heart breaks to think that many will never be able to go back to the way they were pre-Marathon Monday. Tomorrow, I will be at the Ultimate Spring Workout with PopChips helping raise money for the One Fund Boston. Both Ultimate Bootcamp and PopChips will be donating $2 for every attendee that shows up. I’m also donating money to the One Fun Boston. For each gal that can do 20+ non modified pushups, I’ll be donating $2 as well so make sure you stop over at the PopChips tent to drop and give me 20!
