Holla for Wednesday! WOOT WOOT! Hope everyone’s day has been awesome so far.
It was an early start for me, as usual for being a Wednesday, with my first client at 6:00am this morning. I swear, half the time (okay, who am I kidding, ALL the time) when I go in for early morning clients, I must look like a complete ragamuffin; total bedhead, sleepy eyes masked behind my glasses, and today even featured some mismatched socks and a pair of workout capris with holes in them.
Yes, I am one hot mess of a trainer between the hours of 6-9am, but hey; my clients still get a nice ‘ol butt-kickin’ to start their day.
A grande coffee + 1 pump vanilla syrup + skim milk + 1 Truvia packet (my own), a spinach, egg white, and feta wrap, and a sample of blueberry scone that they had on the counter just waiting for me to take.
The egg wrap actually tasted much better than I remembered it tasting, but the scone sample was pretty ‘meh.’ My cinnamon chip scones are WAY better.
A little while later, I had some time to kill between a couple other clients, so I squeezed in a little workout of my own: 10 minutes elliptical, 10 minutes treadmill, and an upper body workout that was, well…
Pretty darn awesome. I used the same ladder format for my workout that I used last week, doing the following upper body moves:
- incline dumbbell chest press – 20lbs.
- barbell bicep curls – 30lbs.
- tricep pressdowns – 40lbs.
- barbell row with underhand grip – 40lbs.
- overhead shoulder press with dumbbells – 10lbs. (<—have always been my weakest!)
My arms were a shakin’ mess by the time I was finished up. Whew!
Post-workout (and shower), it was snack/mini lunch time…
A lemon Chobani + some Love Grown Foods granola, baby carrots and grape tomatoes + hummus.
Shortly after chowing on that, I finished up my last client of the day and headed home. I was in need of another light snack, so I ended up topping two Wasa crackers with some Chocolate PB2.
Believe it or not, today was actually my first time opening the chocolate PB2 that I got exactly three months ago. (I know, I’m crazy like that) but OH.MY.GOD…
That stuff is soooo much better than I thought it was going to be and I can totally foresee this making an appearance in some after-dinner dessert concoctions. Wow. Since I’m about one serving away from running out of my regular PB2, I’m thinking that I’ll have to place another order with iHerb.com (<—affiliate link, yo) and add both of these to the cart.
*FYI: For the month of April, there is no charge for International Airmail shipping on orders from $40 to $80, and orders of $60.00 or more receive a minimum 5% discount applied toward their order total. Plus, as always, first time buyers can receive $5.00 off with my coupon code SAZ564.
Get Your Questions In – New Blog Page Coming Soon!
One last thing before I scoot for this afternoon…
I’ve noticed recently that quite a few of you have had questions about my NASM studying and personal training – things such as how I started, why I started, what working as a trainer is like, etc. I’ve decided that it’d probably be best to have all of the Q&A’s in one place, so I’m going to work on putting together a new page for the ‘ol blog with everything you may possibly need or want to know!
That being said, if you have any questions at all that you’d like to have answered, please feel free to either leave them in the comment section of this post, (or email me if you’d rather remain private – sweettoothcourtney[@]gmail[.]com).
In addition, if you’ve emailed me in the past with questions and I have not yet responded, I will be adding those to the page. And if I have responded to you, and you still have the email, feel free to send it back to me so I can include those as well.
Alright, I’ve chatted your ears off enough for now…I’ll catch you gators later.
