To Spin or Not to Spin

Posted Jan 30 2012 9:36am

That was the question I asked myself this morning when my alarm went off at 6. I had cardio on the brain, but couldn’t decide on running or spin class. I quickly decided on running because I wasn’t the only one that needed some cardio.

Such a sad post run face.

She looks really pitiful in this picture, but she is just upset because she only got one treat and not two after her run. So spoiled.

After the run I whipped up a shake with all my favorites.

Chocolate smoothie

Frozen banana, spinach, almond milk, chocolate protein powder, and a little cocoa extract.

This week I’m trying to be better about my runs so I can start training for races I have yet to sign up for. Last weeks workouts were pretty much non-existent so I’m trying to be better this week. I ran on Friday before meeting up with friends for dinner and a movie and my knee was not happy. It’s probably a better idea to not wait 3 week before trying to run 5-6 miles at once. Whoops!

But besides a bum knee I had a great weekend full of spa treatments. In class that is. We’ve been learning more about the more advanced treatments like microdermabrasion, microcurrent, and yesterday we did lash and brow tinting*. I have been waiting for lash tinting since we started. I have blond lashes and tinting is one thing that I think most everyone should try and you will never have to spend extra time in the morning to get ready. It’s such a great way to make your eyes POP!

Since I had spent all weekend getting advanced treatments and tinting I came home and made a “spa” type dinner for me and Travis.

Salad with roasted sweet potato

Raosted Poblano and Corn chowder

I really love sweet potato on salad and if you’ve not tried it yet I highly recommend it. Neither one of us were very hungry so this was just enough to end a fabulous weekend.

*Stay tuned Thursday for more info on tinting and my before and after.

What is your favorite salad topping?
