Hey! How are you going? Managed to get through those Love Links yet? I finally feel like I’m on top of things- uni study, blog reading, posting. Now I’ve just got to make some me time and I’ll be ready for next week! (or not ha!)
Me time will probably come in the form of us time for date night tonight. We’re both feeling sushi and will either keep it low-key and local, or head to Southbank. Something tells me with my exhausted state and his sore throat, it’s going to be local. But that suits me just perfect
Especially since I’ve got a Les Mills workshop tomorrow! Les Mills Workshops come every quarter and are basically a time to showcase the newest release of programs.
There’s a lot of reasons I enjoy workshops. The culture and atmosphere that produces when you’ve got a room full of instructors, master trainers, pumping music, loved programs and fun choreography- not to mention everyone’s riding the endorphin train. But the most exciting part is not the workshop itself but the new releases! (Check out the Group Fitness page for my release reviews!)
This is my first release where I’ve got two programs under my belt, meaning I’ve got to learn 24 tracks now- 12 for BodyStep & 12 for BodyAttack. New releases are always fun because they bring new music, moves and challenges. Maybe not so much for the members who may only do 1 or 2 classes a week, but doing the same things can get tiresome for instructors who are teaching quite a few classes each week.
However it’s also a tough time because on top of everything else going on in your life you’ve got new choreography to learn- while you’re still teaching the old choreography. Let’s just say that you should be kind to your instructors at these times and forgive them for the odd mistake. And don’t worry when you see crazy people driving along whipping out aerobic moves at the steering wheel…
Before I get too ahead of myself I need to share lunch from today. Breakfast was so so, I mean it was good but nothing new. I seriously have issues with changing up food haha- I get stuck into ruts and patterns. And whilst they’re still tasty, they’re still the same.
Lunch was great thanks to the chicken breast and pumpkin.
My bowl was full of lettuce, spinach, chicken breast, pumpkin, carrot, cucumber, mushrooms and sweet chilli sauce.
Can I just say how good steamed pumpkin is? I much prefer pumpkin and sweet potato for that matter steamed than I did roasted- weird huh?
From this post I think you can tell that my little mood from yesterday didn’t last. I think it was a combination of uni being a drag, tiredness, over studying and my own anxiety. Sleep, chills with my boy, delicious dinner, a creation (loving my new 70% dark choc!) and blog reading seemed to do the trick.
