Good afternoon friends!
Today’s lunch used up some sweet potato that was on it’s last leg. I couldn’t let it go to waste, but it was super simple to cook up.
Baked Sweet Potato
I enjoyed my baked sweet potato on top of a bed of greens with tomato, onion, celery, bell pepper, baked tofu, and balsamic vinegar. Tasty if you ask me!
Planning My Workout Class
I spent the majority of my morning planning out a new-to-me class that I am teaching tomorrow called Yoga Sculpt. This is a vinyasa based yoga class that incorporates strength training into traditional yoga poses to improve mind-body balance, body composition, and overall fitness. I was given an outline to follow as far as what needs to be included in the class, but then it was my job to fill in the blanks.
I typed up my lesson plan, but unfortunately there isn’t a library of stick men in yoga poses, so I had to draw those little guys out. That task is a lot harder than you think…how would you draw a stickman doing bicep curls in tree pose?
It was fun planning this class out for me, but it definitely took me a little bit to get into the mode. I feel like I have been Body Pumping it out so much lately along with teaching the spinning classes that I used on the cruise ship that I haven’t really had to think up a group fitness class. After I got into the groove, though, it was just like riding a bike and the exercise ideas began to flow like water.
There are two basic formats of group fitness: Pre-Choreographed (like Les Mills and Zumba) and Freestyle (which are things like boot camp, core classes, circuit training, etc). I can honestly say that I truly enjoy both formats. I feel like there is definitely a time and a place for each option and, for me, it is good to keep both formats in my repertoire.

Well, tonight makes the third time I’ve used the sweet potato fries recipe. These are SO easy, Tara, and versatile–I’ve made them spicy, sweet and salty. Thanks for the tips!
