HELLOOO! Ahhh, I miss you guys. So much. My new schedule is still something I’m trying to adjust to so I need to get on a blogging schedule since the only time I can blog now is at night when I’m home. I’ve just been subbing a lot of night classes and then waking right back up to teach in the mornings, so my nights are spent getting home at 9, wolfing down a bowl of cereal (meal prep fail) and going to sleep sweaty. Beautiful, I know. But the new job is going good so far and overall I am 79% less stressed. It’s making a difference already!
So here’s what I’ve been up to the last couple weeks in a big summary of pics. Let’s get caught up!
Enjoying my weekends off to the FULLEST! I’m not one to waste a weekend day doing nothing anymore, so brunching is always necessary. This is my new favorite brunch meal from Grey Dog:
Egg, sausage & goat cheese on a croissant with perfect sweet potato fries & a soy iced latte.
I finally met the gorgeous & super sweet Andrea the weekend before last! She lives in Hoboken so she met me for a 6 mile run & took my Sunday spin class where we had a blast! Brunch afterwards at Tavern 29 up on the rooftop.
(Red pepper & goat cheese omelette w. homefries & avocado)
I’m looking forward to being friends with this gal. She is a doll and her positive energy is just what I need in my life! :)
1st day at the new job and it was so beautiful outside. Took my stripey pants, studded oxfords & homemade salad outside to eat… Along with everyone who works on Park Ave. Love it.
First week I did so good with meal prep, even snack prep, so I have to get back on that train because I only get 30 minutes now & it’s too hectic to buy and eat in just 30 mins!
Absolutely loving my outfits. I’ve always wanted to dress preppy but never thought I could pull it off. I’m loving it.
J Crew Factory “city fit” crops are the best pants ever, FYI.
Teaching loooots of spin & improving my watts! My “flat road” resistance number is getting higher which is awesome to feel myself getting stronger! In fact, I see my clients improving and it’s such a great feeling!
Brooklyn 1/2 Marathon bib pick-up in downtown Brooklyn! Gorgeous views.
Ran the 1/2 with my roomie Kira since it was her first half! It was so nice to take it easy & help someone achieve their fitness goal. She did awesome and it was a hot one out. The course is amazing & I can’t wait to demolish it next year!
Refueling the right way… 5 Napkin turkey burger with melted blue cheese, mushrooms & onion with sweet potato fries & diet coke.
I went home to crash and John went to dinner at Dinosaur BBQ in Harlem with a friend and brought me back pulled pork, mac & cheese and coleslaw. Their mac is my favorite ever so I indulged… So dumb. Still in pain 4 days later. Cheese (except blue, goat or feta) and I just can’t.
11 PM that night I left for a less-than-24-hour trip to Binghamton to see my amazing little brother graduate from Binghamton University.
He is hands down the smartest, funniest & most kind hearted person I’ve ever known. Love that he is my brother! I was actually emotional watching him put on his cap & gown & walk across the stage. We’ve been through hell and back with family things for the last 2 years, but he perservered and still did amazing graduating with a Biology degree!
That wraps up my first week and a half of my new life! The nights I don’t teach, it’s pretty amazing to be home by 6:15! Oh, it also helps that my new co-workers are absolutely HILARIOUS. Like, they make me cry from laughing so hard and just being goofy. I fit right in :-)
:) Tell me how you are!!! What’s new?!
