oh hey, Friday Favorites, Happy Sunday! So sometimes life can throw a little curve ball into a Friday post and timing wise a Sunday works out better – so thankfully you guys don’t judge! Be true to you, right?
Anyone else up and at is on this Sunday morning? Started today off with a super fun run + yoga event held by Fittsburgh that started with a 3 mile run led by the lovely @run_intended followed by an hour of yoga in the square! Below is a picture of Mr. Fittsburgh himself, & fellow FitFluential Ambassador, Joe Vennare explaining some details before the run.
Snagged a pic of my girls Kati & Bittia (aka Sarah @lesky27) looking strong as ever during yoga.
There were definitely over 100+ people doing yoga in Market Square…
which made for some really awesome pictures & vibes. And what’s even better? When Papacakes texts you (just got an iPhone – watch out!) and asks what you’d like for breakfast – oh yesss.
He makes the best dippy eggs – side of whole grain bagel with hummus & salsa (BEST combo) followed by some organic bacon & organic sausage. I love enjoying all types of brunch foods on Sunday’s! #truetoyouEATS
Alright SO to some high lights from this past week! On the fitness front, my friends at Harbinger Fitness (& GLOW Retreat Sponsors! Tickets still on sale!) sent their Barbell Pad so I could have some more protection for squats & walking lunges. I like using the pad for back squats or walking lunges so it’s a bit easier on my upper back & more protection on my traps that stabilize the movement & bar. I’ve also been using my Steel body plates & bar from Impex-Fitness like crazy and have been LOVING my training with it.
What’s your favorite way to train with a barbell?
Post workouts have been a lot of smoothies lately because 1) I crave a cold smoothie post outdoor workout sesh & 2) I love me some VEGA Sport.
This VEGA packed smoothie consisted of frozen banana, frozen acai pack, liquid egg whites for liquid as well as so delicious milk, 1 scoop of VEGA Vanilla, blueberries, strawberries, & Nutrex-Hawaii Spirulina. If you’re not used to the green color, looks may be deceiving because I think it’s quite delish .
Feel free to use coupon code XUG228 for $10 off your first order at iherb.com where you can find VEGA & much more!
I’ve also been enjoying my afternoon breaks every now & then that I can hit the pool with my girl Sarah!
She was super pumped about this picture, can’t you tell?
I got a new case this week for my phone – which has already sustained 2 drops down the stairs – so it’s a winner by me! Did I mention I also spilt iced coffee on my parents computer keyboard? Yeah, I can kind of be a clumsy human sometimes – which also tends to cost me some money to repair things like…keyboards. Go me!
Proud Trainer Moment the other day – we had a PLANK challenge with some of my tennis athletes which consisted of just holding a plank for as long as they could. If they dropped, they had to cheer each other on.
One of the girls, Anna, held a 4:30 PLANK! All of the kids did great and one of the other athletes, Drew, ended up holding the longest plank which he went for 5 minutes. Awesome!
Whelp, that’s about it! I’ve got some more things up my sleeve for this week to share with you guys but for now I’m off to get some cleaning done!
Have a great Sunday!
Be true to you,
