Hey friends! How was your weekend? Hopefully you got to let your hair down and have a little bit of fun. This morning I taught my 5:45 AM spin class. 55 minutes of jumps, speedy intervals and rolling hills. Class was almost full today…Mondays are always hit or miss. But…I la la LOVE teaching to a packed class so early in the dang mornin’.
After cycling, shower and hopping in the car I swung on over to Starbucks. I think I may have found my new favorite drink. Toffee nut Americano…it reminds me of a little taste of fall.
So let’s back track to the weekend. Saturday morning I ran 12 miles with my running group. Um…what should I say about this run…not much to say other than it was hot. Ick. We cooled it down with some icy cold watermelon though.
I stayed about half an hour for the 9AM Crossfit demonstration. They set up stations outside of Luke’s and took us through each one showing us proper form.
Oh and those big ole colorful weights…don’t be fooled…they’re 10 pound rubber bumper plates. Kinda cool though.
Overall I enjoyed trying it out! I think I’d definitely try it again. It was nice to get a little strength training in. I love the concept of jumping from station to station and doing short bursts of intensity.
After the workout I took It easy for the remainder of the day. Met up with my ladies at Blue Fish for sushi, wine and girl talk.
Oh and I got my hair done. I get a keratin treatment on my hair every few months. Very similar to the Brazilian blowout. I love it cuz my hair smells like chocolate.
Sunday I went to church and later met up with my ma and some of her friends at Smokin’ Racks for bbq and birthday fun. My mom’s b-day is actually tomorrow but she wanted to celebrate early. I got her a cake and a special party hat for the occasion.
We ate some delicious cuisine and listened to live music – jazz and blues. This place gets packed on a Sunday night! They also have karaoke and happy hour specials. A few people were celebrating their b-days so they did a big song and dance production. I am definitely bringing friends back to this spot. So up my alley. I even took a little video.
Go mama…it’s ya birthday…..
