Sweat on Deck

To say this morning was incredible would be the understatement of the year!  The weather was chilly but perfect, the people were awesome, the energy was amazing!!  What a fantastic event Lululemon put on this morning!

We boarded the ship around 8:45, set up our mats and took a bunch of pictures of the awesome view we had off the flight deck.  Yep, we worked out on a flight deck this morning!

For the first hour we took a boot camp class.  I assumed that with that many people and no weights it couldn’t be that bad.  WRONG!!  She had us busting our butts for sure.  We did multiple circuits of various arm, leg and core exercises multiple times with little rest.  My push ups were still suffering from my fitness classes I have been to this week.  Nothing like getting back into weight training like 3 days out of the week hard core!  

After our hour of boot camp, we had an hour of yoga.  The instructor was amazing and hilarious.  I just wanted to be her friend!  After so many classes this week and a fairly strong week of running the yoga was very much needed.  I felt so much better when it was over.  I really need to get yoga back into my routine.  My hamstrings will thank me for sure.  

I had one of the lemons get some pictures for me and when I got home and pulled them up I was so happy I did.  The pictures were just amazing, seeing so many people all doing the same poses is a powerful thing.

Side note, I found this in the hem of my shirt today and thought it was awesome.  It also says "Will go the distance for cupcakes!"  Brittany (blissfulbritt), this made me think of you!

Thank you Lululemon for an incredible morning and workout!!

Time Flies

Today was one of those days that I felt like the sun was going down right when I got up it flew so fast.  However, looking back it was pretty productive and most of it was fun.

First thing in the morning (okay lets be serious, it was about 10:30) I went for a nice long run with my friends Maribeth and Steph.  We ran over the Ravel Bridge to the Pitt Street Pier in Old Mount Pleasant and back.  It was a gorgeous morning for a run like that and it was made much better with friends.  I am glad we got the bridge in but after running and going to another fitness class yesterday my legs are definitely feeling it.

Post run, we decided to go to Persimmon Cafe for a late lunch and a treat which was very convenient because it is IN the laundromat.  I carted laundry from over a month over there, threw it in and had a much more enjoyable wait.

We finished off our lovely meal with another Pumpkin Carmel Custard.  MB and I split one again thank goodness.  They are so good I could eat a whole one, but I would feel EXTREMELY uncomfortable if I did so.

Right about the time we were done, all my laundry was dry and I opted to bring it home to fold so I could enjoy some Friends while I did it.  An hour and a half later, I finally had it folded!!

That’s what you get when you don’t do laundry for a month.  Hopefully this is the last time because we got a washer and dryer yesterday!!!!  This is HUGE news for us, let me tell ya!  I used to be a solid every two week laundry kind of girl until the whole laundromat thing happened.

Man that was a lot of talk about laundry…sorry!

The rest of the day (which lets be serious, it was already five o’clock at this point) I ran around and did some errands and before I knew it I was making dinner.  I have really been making a lot off the budgetbytes.com website and everything I have made so far has been awesome.  I made black bean and avocado enchiladas tonight and they were awesome.  Case didn’t even complain that there was no meat in them!

Tomorrow morning calls for boot camp and yoga on the YORKTOWN.  Lululemon is having a fitness event on the actual ship.  There are 400 people taking a one hour boot camp class followed by a one hour yoga.  I am so excited for it.  Hopefully I can get some pictures during water breaks!
