Hello everyone! I am definitely starting to feel exhaustion setting in. Today it took me a good 10 minutes to figure out what day it was. But it ended on a good note with a great rehearsal. I’m feeling really good about the work I’ve been doing on Aladdin. I love my team and I love my kiddos.
The day also started out on an awesome note in Spin class. I don’t know what got into the instructor, but she was out for blood today in the best way possible! At the beginning of class she started coming around to check out our cadence and gears. She always says our flat road should be between gear 6-10. The last 2 weeks or so I’ve been keeping mine at 9. She looked at a few people’s and made them bump it up, but then looked at mine and just said “Yup.” I guess that means I’m where I should be? Haha. Then at the end of class she made us all bump up our flat road one gear–oy! Class was intense and definitely kicked my butt, and at the end she was talking about pushing yourself. She said “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got.” So true. I am the only one who can push myself. The only one who knows how much I have to give.
I feel like I am usually pretty good about pushing and giving my best, especially in a class situation or when I enjoy what I’m doing, but I know there are definitely times when I let myself off the hook. I let myself feel uncomfortable–to a point. It’s nice to be reminded that it’s all up to me, and I am in control over what I get out of my work outs, and really my life in general. I was pretty proud of what I accomplished in class today 🙂
After class, Kara and I were both super sweaty and totally beat but in the best way possible!
Notice the hot sweat stain on my under boob. Talk about not being cute after a work out 🙂
The rest of the day was pretty much a blur, but I did want to share that I added almond extract to a smoothie I made and it made a HUGE difference. So freaking delicious. I love extracts! Alright, I just have to keep my eyes open for 20 more minutes so I can work more, then I can go to bed! Good night, all!
