I was quite the gym rat this morning! I got some amazing workouts in. My three sushi rolls from last night made for great workout fuel 🙂
First, I headed out to 6 am BodyPump. They don’t offer a Saturday morning BP at my usual club, so I drove to one that’s a little bit farther. Early morning is my favorite time to do BodyPump because you don’t have to fight over spots or equipment. Things can get heated in that group fitness room!
Then I drove to my usual LVAC for cycling and CxWorx! There are so many studies about how cycling makes a great cross training exercise for runners. (Check out this article for more). Experts say that you really shouldn’t run more than 5 times a week due to the stress it puts on your joints. Since cycling is a low impact sport, it’s a perfect exercise to include on days you don’t run. Plus it burns major calories!!
After the gym I was STARVING!! I headed to Juice n Go for an acai bowl! I’ve been on an acai bowl kick lately. They’re just so delicious and healthy! I’m on the hunt for the best one in town.
It was pretty good, but the one from Acai to the T has it beat! Next stop for my Acai Bowl hunt will be Nekter Juice Bar in Downtown Summerlin!
Later on, my dad and I went on a little hike. This week we strayed from the usual Mary Jane Falls trail and tried out Trail Canyon. It was pretty steep and tough, but was a ton of fun! The more challenging the better! 🙂
My mom and sis ditched us for dinner, so we went to one of our favorite places: Olive Garden! Minestrone soup, tilapia, shrimp, and broccoli make for an amazing dinner. (I also splurged and had a breadstick. It was my little reward for today’s workouts) 😉 Olive Garden never fails me.
Then it was back home for some homework and down time! 38 more school days until I’m stress free!!!!
