Said my personal trainer to me this morning….and I looked at him and burst out laughing. He’s so freaking awesome. And doesn’t put up with my BS. Props to my trainer… he is definitely what I need for early morning workouts!
That workout felt like eons ago. I’m so tired, it’s been a long day. To be fair, I had a tough workout this morning:
1 mile progressive treadmill run #RWRunStreak (and through downtown Chicago on the Woodway)
Band-assisted pull ups- 3 sets to exhaustion (this was the “warmup”- and also where I began to get a little dramatic…)
And then, I died.
After I died, came back to life, and attempted to lift my arms to wash my hair; I shook up Meal Replacement shakes. Love them, they’re filling and taste great.
This morning I sat in on fitness instructor auditions (so fun to watch- and I definitely admire people who teach group fitness, I have zero coordination), then went to sweepings presentations to SGA to support our Recreation initiatives and present healthy campus initiatives.
Lunch was steamed veggies:
…and an apple.
I spent the afternoon in meetings, catching up with vendors that were passing through on their way to New Orleans, and taking care of projects that needed done before I leave tomorrow.
Headed to the Athletic Business Conference in New Orleans tomorrow. I’m excited- I’ve never been to this one, I hear it’s a great professional development conference, and I’m super excited about the fitness equipment expo to check out all the new trends! Should be a good time – although I definitely can’t promise blogging everyday while I’m there. I’ll do one “super blog” on Sunday recapping NOLA.
I dropped Laney off with her dog-sitter, one of my students, David. He’s already calling her “Pup-Chow”- a term of endearment- and she was best friends with him after 3 minutes. I think when I get back this weekend she won’t want to come back home!
Dinner when I got home was a tortilla-bean-tomato bake that I totally made up. It turned out ok, but I was too tired to really try to care.
Afterwards got to packing. I’m terrible at that. I tend to just not care and everything gets thrown into a duffel bag- then I hope and pray when I get there that I have what I need. It tends to workout (usually). At least I’m not the only one stressing about packing… Lo at least has me covered if I need it!
One more shoutout tonight- one of my former students and brilliant friends helped with my published article by combing through for grammar. VERY appreciated- thanks so much Gabriel!
And on that note, I’m exhausted… I’ll take plenty of pictures and do a recap this weekend, but looking forward to New Orleans and seeing good friends!
