I tried a new group exercise class after work tonight. It’s called Y-Triple Threat. The teacher said that the class was setup like the Tabata one in the last session, so I was kind of excited as I had been wanting to try Tabata for a while now.
Here is the class description from the YMCA’s website:
Knock your socks off with this three-tier total body workout! Participants will work through a combination of exercises encompassing Cardio, Strength and Core. This class offers variety and modifications for all fitness levels.
It was a fun, but tough class. I did find myself really sweaty and red at one point and had to run for an extra sip of water. It felt good to get my butt kicked though! :)
I feel like my exercise routine has been too boring lately, so it was nice to switch things up tonight.
I came home and knew exactly what I would have for dinner–tempeh. I love this Lightlife flax kind I got at Whole Foods. It’s definitely been the best tempeh I have tried so far. (Sorry for the yellow photo).
I cooked it in soy sauce and had it with a side of asparagus and a berry protein smoothie.
I really like this protein powder. It doesn’t taste chalky or thick like some others do.
I had better luck with curling my hair yesterday. We went to my in-laws’ house for dinner, so I thought I would change things up with my hairdo. They all liked my hair a lot.
I can even report that I slept on my curls last night and they still looked good this morning, so I didn’t wash my hair. I just dry shampooed it and refreshed some of the front curls. A co-worker also commented on my curls and wondered how I got them to look like they did. Love having a new style to experiment with!
On the bus ride into work this morning, I decided that I’m giving up on The Tiger’s Wife. Just can’t get into the book and I am about 35% through it. I have plenty of other things to read! Life’s too short to read bad books.
Any book suggestions for me? I have a bunch of stuff to read, but has anything grabbed your attention lately?
I’m only two episodes into the series, but I am loving Downton Abbey so far! I am off to catch another episode now before bedtime.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday evening!
