10 Miles, PiYo Training and Wknd Recap.

I have been loving my Mondays lately. I know technically I’m supposed to not like them but how can you when you get to wake up and teach a rockin’ spin class? Plus get your own workout out of the way. Best of both worlds.

After teaching spin this morning I moseyed on over to Starbucks for an egg white spinach wrap and Americano. Perfect for a rainy morning.


How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good. Things started off with a bang Saturday with my PiYo certification class. A full day of bending, twisting, and sweating with lots of chaturangas.

The presenter Mindy Lawhorne was super sweet and hilarious. Plus she worked us out!

We had to take a full hour long PiYo class and then she broke down all of the moves and made sure we could do each one of them with the proper alignment. Towards the end of the day we had to take a test and then she broke us up into small groups and we each presented the routine in front of the class. Hardcore (and I was mega sore afterwards) but I loved every minute of it! And just like that…at the end of the day, I was certified! She gave us a DVD along with the music that we needed to go home and practice to.


Overall I loved it and I definitely want to practice and really nail it down before I go and audition for it at my gym. That’s where the REAL test is…when you audition for management! I’m kind of a perfectionist like that. I won’t teach it until I absolutely know I’m ready. Hopefully that will be soon! I will keep you posted.

After the full day I was DONE and had to take a nap. Once I recharged by batteries man friend and I went to go see X-men in 3D. How dope are these glasses? Haha I realize people don’t say dope anymore. I’m trying to bring that word back.


Sunday I got up and just felt like running. I will slowly be gearing the miles back up in preparation for this race come October. Lovely 10 miles in the ‘hood.


Oh and I did a little bit of grocery shopping. This is the absolute best hummus ever. Hummus with greek yogurt…who knew that would be good?


How was your weekend?

Any PiYo instructors out there? Tell me your secrets!

  1. Yay PiYo!! Wow I feel like I got off so easy–we didn’t have to teach in front of the class at all. Just to small groups, but even that was totally informal. Looks like you rocked it, congrats!! 🙂

  2. Awesome weekend!!! I’m so happy you had a great time with PiYo!! Sounds very hardcore, but sweet!!! You look amazing in the pictures, too!!! Amazing picture of your 10 mile run!! Wow!! So inspirational!!! Happy Monday!!! XOXO!!

  3. Maybe when you are ready to audition you can do a little video to share on your blog – I would love to see some! (I’ve been trying to decide if I want to order the set from BeachBody.)
    Glad you were able to get in a good run, too!

  4. Busy weekend for you! Congrats on the training – so awesome!!
    I love that egg white spinach wrap at *bucks….keep trying to replicate it at home – haha.
