Good day to you! I am enjoying some warm tea on this chilly Texas morning.
Woke up to temps in the 30s. A couple of days ago the highs were in the 70s. Texas weather can’t make up its mind. Stop playing with my emotions, weather.
This morning I taught a spin class…new playlist on deck.
Last night I didn’t have to teach class so I took advantage of some free time and got my Bodypump on. Warmed up a bit on the treadmill first. Felt good to pick it up a bit at the end of that mile.
Onto Bodypump…not sure if I knew what I was getting myself into here…since I haven’t been to BP in, oh 6 months or so.
Bodypump is a 60 minute strength training class that works your entire body. Each song works a different muscle group. The squat track especially was a killer last night…hurts so good. Much needed for these weak sauce runner’s muscles.
After the gym I went to the store to stock up on some goodies. I have been exploring some new foods…my new fave as of late – the kabocha squash.
The easiest way to cook it is to wash it, wrap it in foil and pop that bad boy in the oven on 375 for an hour. Cut it in half, scoop the seeds out, slice and serve. The skin is also edible and tasty. I put some in my lunch this morning and topped it with some drizzles of honey and cinnamon. It’s mostly sweet all on its own though!
Off to work.
What is the temp like in your neck of the woods? How often do you strength train? What new foods have you tried that you’ve enjoyed?
