This week, I worked a lot on school projects as I finish up this summer semester. Next week is the last week, so the end is in sight! I don’t have a ton planned this weekend so that I can stay focused on school work and relaxing before finishing up my coursework next week. Despite being busy with school, I DID make time to eat delicious food and move my body 🙂
I hope you all had a great week too and have something to look forward to during the weekend! Catch ya next week!
Here is a little Five Things Friday…
Five Things I Ate:
SMOOTHIE! This smoothie had a frozen banana, unsweetened almond milk, Vega Clean Protein in Chocolate, frozen spinach (game changer!), and peanut butter. Perfect after a sweaty run outside!
Zoodles with herbs from my balcony garden and almond chicken. Will make sure to share the recipe soon.
Nourish Bowl with sautéed spinach and kale, sprouted brown rice, steamed carrots with lemon juice and tahini, lentils, and roasted summer squash.
This lunch bowl had leftover rice, leftover roasted veggies, spinach, and tuna all tossed together in a sauté pan to heat it up.
Lunch salad full of romaine, cherry tomatoes, roasted vegetables, smoked trout, cucumbers, and sauerkraut. Yum!
Five Workouts I Did:
Completed an hour easy run with Bernie
Pure Barre (went 2 times this week!) these barre workouts are always so humbling to me.
The summer heat. It’s nearly 90 degrees here in Denver on the daily and I really love it. To me, the hotter the better 🙂
Biking to Pure Barre classes. A friend has a bike that she doesn’t use during the day, so I’ve been borrowing it to bike to Pure Barre. It’s been fun to get outside and move my body in a way I don’t normally do. I forgot how fun biking is!
Being ALMOST done with the semester. I LOVE and ADORE learning, but I could use a break right about now…
My speed training for running. I’ve been training with a friend who is a super fast and very experienced runner and I have really seen improvements on my time. It’s honestly so surprising to me and really fun to see my time improve.
