Comedian + MORE SPIN

Happy Saturday people! I hope you’re outside enjoying the sunny, warm weather (if you’re in NY) and not stuck in your office all day like me. I would literally do anything to just spend today walking around the city and Central Park, especially since this week it’s going back into shitty weather. I really pray that this is the last couple of weeks of cold.

So I had a super good week full of possible opportunities that I can’t say anything about right now, just keep positive thoughts for me if you can 🙂 On Thursday night, I was invited to a fashion show for Brooks at City Sports, but couldn’t get there until it had already been going on for an hour.

We missed the actual fashion part of it but I REALLY wanted to try to find a pair of Brooks that I actually liked. I’m trying so hard to be able to run in Brooks… not for any reason really other than Mizuno discontinues the shoes that always are amazing for me and doesn’t replace them with ones that are ACTUALLY comparable. I tried the Pure Project line and none of them feel right, along with the Ravenna’s. I’m running in the Elixir 8’s now and they had 1 pair in my size left in the blue color (I have the pink now) super discounted so I grabbed those. I felt bad buying Mizuno’s at a Brooks event, but you have to run in what’s right for you! They did give us cool swag bags that have little travel bags and a super cool glass water bottle.

While we were inside the store I saw this man who looked just like Jeffrey Gurian, a comedian that we’ve seen on Kroll Show and I KNEW it was him. He’s pretty hard to miss. He was walking to his car when we left and at the last minute I ran over and knocked on his window because I just had to know if it really was him. And it was! He was SO SO SO nice! I’ve met quite a few celebrities living here and he is by far the nicest one. I’m sure he doesn’t get stopped a whole lot, but the man is amazing. Check out all the work he’s done!

It was one of those awesome, super random nights you only have in NYC. Love it.

A couple good eats from the week:

This was a day-before-pay-day broke as a joke dinner which was leftover stir fry veggies with a fried egg and hot sauce/honey mustard. Super good though and it’s dinners like these that I need to keep eating in lieu of take out or cereal because I’m lazy. Light, fast and healthy!

This. This was amazing. I’m so obsessed with chai tea latte’s but avoid them because of the sugar, but when I saw this Spiru-tein chai latte dairy-free protein powder I had to grab it. I tried some with just almond milk and it’s not that great alone but I mixed up this little ice cream bowl and it was SO good.

  • 1/2 scoop Spiru-tein chai latte protein powder
  • 1.5 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 tsp loose-leaf chai tea
  • Stevia to taste
  • 5-6 ice cubes

Blend all together and stuck in the freezer for awhile, topped with dairy-free mini chocolate chips (I truly love these more than regular choc chips!) and PB. Yaaaaaaaaas! Now that I’m teaching a lot of classes a week, I’m going to up my protein a little for recovery and since I don’t like to eat a lot of meat (read: can’t afford to) I’m bringing back some dairy-free protein powders just to use like this at night.

As for the more spin topic of this post, I am going to be teaching at another studio! I met with the owner of NuYu Revolution, Susan Rappaport, about a month ago and I finally got to take a class with her yesterday morning and the concept of her very small spin/yoga/pilates space is wonderful; the class sizes are never larger than 10-11 people, so it’s a very personal experience. She knows your name, your fitness level, and what she needs to do to get you to come in and get your workouts in. You join her gym when you need someone who WILL call you if she notices that you have skipped a few workouts. I absolutely love it and really hope it’s a place I can grow with. I will be teaching there Sunday early evenings and Monday nights. That means with my classes at 24 Hour Fitness, The Fitness Guru and NuYu, I will be teaching 7 classes between Sundays-Tuesdays! Along with half marathon training, I’m overwhelmed in the best way possible! 🙂

Who’s your favorite comedian?

I don’t think I’ve ever asked this- have you ever taken a spin class? Love it or hate it?

  1. I really like Bill Burr (scored some of his tickets when he comes to Edmonton next month as a Valentine’s gift for my bf) and Louis CK. I have taken spin classes 5-6 years ago I did really enjoy it when I went, even thought my legs felt like noodles and I wasn’t going as hard as everyone else looked like there were. I’d like to try it again soon and hopefully make it a weekly occurrence.

  2. How cool that you saw that comedian! Fun times, too. I don’t think I have a favorite but I haven’t been to see very many in person. We saw Zach Galifianakis and we were so disappointed that we left in the middle of the show. We also saw Gabriel Eglesias and he was hilarious.
