Happy Monday! I am going to start monday off with a tradition that I would like to continue every Monday going forward. I think most of us are just a little bummed on Mondays-being the start of another work week and having our weekend behind us. I would like to bring about MEMORY MONDAYS. Each monday I am going to share a picture (or 2) of a memory I have from this picture, from my past so here goes!
This is a picture of me and my brother (2 years older than I) when we were about 6 and 8. This picture was taken in Cape Cod, where when we were growing up, spent each and every summer until we got old enough to go to our beloved overnight camp. Cape Cod holds such a dear place in my heart, and we still have a house which my parents basically spend the entire summer at. We travel there every so often and everytime I go over that bridge I get a tingly feeling and it brings back such care free, amazing memories. This was taken at 'our' beach, Dowses. Don't you just love my stylish polka dots?
This picture was taken at our overnight camp, Camp Tevya when I was 16 and he was 18. THis camp holds such a special place in our hearts as well. I started going when I was going into 6th grade and continued for 10 years! every summer for 10 years, we packed up the car and were brought to Brookline, NH (only about an hour away) and this is where we spent each summer. I was a camper for 6 years and a counselor for 4 (Athletic Director for 2 of those years) This place was a haven for me and I cannot even describe the amazing friendships I still have to this day from camp. I will cherish Camp and my Camp friends, always.
Did any of you attend overnight camp? Did you fall in love or was it not for you? if you didn't attend camp, did you spend your summers somewhere special like Cape Cod?
I must share my dinner from last night. Jason and I have declared that Sundays be pizza night! They are so easy to make and delicious (and healthy)
Mine is the left (low carb wrap) Jasons on the right (Boboli)
Pre cooked veggies
Post cooked veggies
Tah dah! Mine was sauce, cheese, veggies and grilled chicken
His was sauce, cheese, veggies and pepperoni
I made a yummy salad for us as well. Romaine+red peppers+tomato+dried cranberries+cuke+sliced grapes
we also lit a fire. This is me taking over the fire duty!
Today, I had work at 5am. The good thing about this is I am done for the day around 12:30-1. TOday I teach a body sculpt class at 12. So I am done at 12:45. Class went really well! I incorporated some new moves which the class loved! I love seeing them improve and have proper form. It shows I am really getting through to them about the importance of form and breathing
I grabbed a treadmill at around 6:15 and hit the deck for a 4.2 mile run. I love this distance. Jason asked why I always run this distance, why not 2 or 3? I responded saying this was my "ZONE" distance in which I feel awesome when I hit that 4 mile mark. I could keep going for 5, but I stop around 4 because it is there that I feel great!
Do any of you have a zone distance??
at around 8:30 I dug into breakfast. 1/2 C oats, chia, 1/2 banana, truvia packet, cinnamon, frozen berries
and this star player, which I keep at work. I try to take a portion out so I am not eating out of the jar, we all know what happens when we eat out of the jar!
MMMM....Love the creamy and crunchiness of Crazy Richards
Shorty after some work and chugging about 2-32 oz's of water (I was quite thirsty this morning!) I snacked on this before teaching class
Pumpkin + Plain Chobani + 1/2 C Kashi Go Lean= perfection!
and a perfect Honeycrisp Apple! (my favorite kind!)
Lunch was eaten very quickly after I came home, and now I am just digesting...
I went into my fridge and decided to snap some shots of what a normal day in my fridge looks like!
always, at least 2! THere is also the unpictured Peanutbutter hummus and another garlic lovers hummus from TJ's.
Yes, we eat a lot of egg's! These are so convenient to have on hand! (yes, that is French Vanilla Silk creamer sticking out in the left hand corner)
LOTS of fruit, always. This is not all of it either! we have about 10 bananas, cut up watermelon and tons of frozen berries and mango. I am so happy its clementine season!
OK, now its LUNCH TIME
