Weekly Updates: 08/04/14 – 08/10/14 (Zooma Week 1)

I wrote this post before the tragic passing of Robin Williams. I know that some people feel like mourning celebrity deaths is ridiculous, and sometimes I feel that way too. When Paul Walker passed I read this article that explained so well why we feel more when certain celebrities pass away.

genie-im-gonna-miss-you-robin-williams

I feel like I grew up with Robin’s works. Mork & Mindy was one of my favorite TV shows as a kid. Dead Poets is what made me want to teach. Good Morning, Vietnam made me want to learn more about history. Hook, Aladdin, Jumanji & Mrs.Doubtfire are engrained in my childhood, and Good Will Hunting is always my  favorite Boston movie, but my favorite movie about life and love. Here is a great article on the life lessons we learned from Robin Williams.

I hope people remember that Depression is a disease, one that this no cure, but that needs constant vigilance and work. If you are feeling like you have no one please call the suicide prevention line (1-800-273-8255) or tell someone. Even in times of darkness you are loved.

So, Zooma training has officially kicked off. I am excited for the training and for the workouts!

Monday, August 4th –  Cross Training per the plan! I ended up using Monday as a rest day since I went to Pure Barre on Saturday and Sunday, and they were both tough workouts!

Tuesday, August 5th - 30 minutes running. I went to Pure Barre in the morning and when I got home I took B on a jog(ish) in town. His stroller is not a running stroller so it is heavy, and ended up walking more than running.

Wednesday, August 6th – Cross training. I took an evening class at Pure Barre with Jane, and we were rewarded with free wine at the end of the day! For my local friends, Pure Barre Lynnfield has $10 Tuesdays for the month of August for new clients, if you have been wanting to try it, this is your chance!

Pure Barre

Thursday, August 7th – 30 minutes running. My car started making wonky noises and we couldn’t get an appointment with the mechanic until Saturday, and he advised us not to drive unless absolutely necessary. So I did 30 minutes of running around outside our house with B.

Friday, August 8th – 3 miles. Same situation as above, and our street (and neighboring ones) don’t have sidewalks so I do not feel comfortable taking B’s large stroller out on the busy streets. We ran up and down our dead-end street for a while, I didn’t check for mileage because that seems silly, but we were out for over 2 hours, so hopefully that counts for something.

Saturday, August 9th – Rest. I knew Sunday would likely be a rest day, so Jane picked me up at home and drove me to Pure Barre. Thankful for awesome friends!

Sunday, August 10th – 45 minutes running. I was outside playing with B for a good chunk of the day, and also running around the house doing a ton of projects, it wasn’t the planned workout, but I think it’ll be okay.

Week 1 Lessons: It is not easy training with a toddler, that is something I don’t have to really explain. Where I run/jog/walk isn’t super populated during the early hours of the morning, at least not at the time that works for us. So until B starts pre-school I am going to have to fit in what I can, when I can. I also, have to keep my pace worries in check. With the stroller and B alone I am pushing about 70 pounds, plush whatever gear, snacks, toys, etc… I bring with us to keep him occupied until we get to the playground.

Food Updates:

This weekend was one of the first weekends this summer that resulted in spontaneous dinner plans. Cait and I had been trying to meet up for a while, and we both happened to be free on Friday night. She picked me up (seriously, I have great friends) and brought us to Legal C Bar at Market Street in Lynnfield.

LegalCBar

We took a couple of seats at the bar and had a great time, great food and conversation will do that for you. I also had a pretty healthy dinner. The combo plate hat scallops,scrimp and a crab cake full of crab not stuffing alongside a light salad.

LegalCBarFood

I still enjoyed the warm bread and some wine, but I still put this dinner in the win column.

Do you run with a stroller? What was the best seafood dish you’ve made or had made for you?

Weekly Updates: 07/21/14 – 08/03/14

20140323-222747.jpg

In case you missed it, I posted my Zooma Cape Cod training plan last week. I start today, fingers crossed it already happened.

07/21 – 07/27

I was away during the weekends that bordered this week so I had to get all my classes in during the week. I ended up going to Pure Barre on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I was going to go on Friday morning but I had to fast for blood work (ten tubes, yuck) so I decided it’d be best if I took a rest day. It was definitely a wise decision since I was wiped after that blood work.

Pure Barre

07/28 – 08/03

I made it to Pure Barre on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I enjoy taking advantage of visits from my mother-in-law and mom so that I can take later morning classes. I also love when we are home for the weekends so that I can take a barre class with Jane. As of August 1, (Friday) I had taken 55 classes. My next goal is 100 classes!

Food

I hate going away because then I don’t have time to prep, but because of all the help we had this week I was able to prep a ton and eat really well. This weekend we were home so I was able to do the same. I am still seeing a nutritionist so that helps with keeping me accountable too. Although the stress has been high lately, I’ve been really trying to keep the stress eating reeled in.

How was your week in workouts? Are you training for something or have any big goals?

Five Things Friday: Zooma Training Plan & Pure Barre Goals

Five Things Friday1. Zooma Cape Cod Training Plan

I finally made a training plan for the Zooma Cape Cod 10K. I start on Monday, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t worried about it. I am worried, terrified is actually the more appropriate word. I need this redemption race so badly, but I am scared of what the outcome could be.

In other exciting Zooma news, the race is sold out!! How exciting! Leave me a comment and let me know if you are running, and we can try to get together! If you are running, Marathon Sports is hosting a 10-mile training run for those participating in the half-marathon.  It is Saturday, September 18 at 8 am at the Mashpee Marathon Sports. Click on the link to RSVP if you plan on attending, and stock up on any fuel you might need for the race. Marathon Sports is my go-to store for any running questions or guidance so I am super excited that they are hosting this run.

Cross-training is definitely going to be Pure Barre, some Yoga, and probably a little bit of DanceFIT thrown in!

2. Pure Barre 100 Club

IMG_8934

It’s no secret that I love Pure Barre. It has been my saving grace these last six months, and the community is wonderful. I just got an email from one of the wonderful women that work there and she told me that I am over halfway to the Pure Barre 100 club. 45 awesome classes until I become part of the club!

3. Wedding Fun

IMG_8859

He was so stinking good the entire wedding, I couldn’t believe it. I mean he is pretty laid back, but being in a wedding makes for a long fay for anyone. He even participated in some Greek dancing and pretty much refused to leave the dance floor!

4. Boston Fun

IMG_8927

We went into Boston with my aunt and cousins for the afternoon, then met up with Nick and my uncle for dinner. I haven’t ventured into the city by myself with B, but this trip definitely made me realize that we could probably do it!

5. Thankful

I know I say this a lot but I am very thankful for those who have been such integral parts of my life, especially during this recovery process and moments when the grief makes me sad and angry. I am blessed to have such a wonderful support group of family and friends.

What’s on your mind this gorgeous friday?

Weekly Updates: 07/07/14 – 07/20/14

20140323-222747.jpgNow we are getting all caught up! I am planning on sharing my Zooma training plan at the end of this week with you all, and that will hopefully add some variety to my workouts!

07/07 – 07/13

Tuesday I had a double, Poise Fusion Xpress in the morning and Pure Barre in the afternoon.

Wednesday and Friday I also took a Pure Barre class and Thursday I took Buti at Studio Poise. Thursday was my last forseeable class at Studio Poise. I don’t have any more classes in my account, and while I love the variety and teachers there I just wasn’t super motivated to get out of bed for class, and that for me means it is time to switch it up.

07/14 – 07/20

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday were Pure Barre days. Since I have the Summer Slimdown special, I want to make the most of it. Unfortunately, every single one of my July weekends is packed, so I am trying to get at least 3-4 classes in a week.

Food

IMG_8771

The past two weekends have been hard, we had B’s birthday party, OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE HE IS THREE, and this past weekend was a close friend/family member’s wedding and B was the ring bearer. That meant a lot of time around not such great food, and I think I did really well, considering.  I have written before about how summer is more difficult for me, but I have been making an effort to make sure I am eating 100% clean and healthy when I am home, and that way I don’t feel guilty when I don’t have healthy options!

What have you been doing for workouts this summer?

Weekly Updates: 06/02/14 – 07/06/14

Yikes, it’s been awhile huh? I feel like a broken record, but summer is just so crazy busy! We haven’t had a free weekend since Memorial Day, and really only had a few free since Easter. Blogging just falls to back burner sometimes. I am starting training for Zooma soon,so I will be posting these more frequently as I incorporate runs back into my weekly workouts. FYI if you are interested in Zooma they are almost sold out, use code CCAMB9 to get 10% off your entry!

20140323-222747.jpg

06/02 – 06/08

Monday – Buti Xpress at Studio Poise, Buti is what I would describe as “sexy yoga”. It is yoga, tribal dance, and plyometrics all in one class. I was definitely apprehensive, but I am really glad I did. It pushed me way out of my comfort zone…in a good way.

Tuesday – Poise Xpress at Studio Poise. I love Emily’s class and was happy to see progress since the last time I took this class.

Friday – Pound at Studio Poise, another favorite at SP and another great class taught by Emily. We had some new routines, which is also fun, and really brings out how uncoordinated I am, haha.

Sunday – My first DanceFIT class in Natick, I loved it so much I bought a Groupon! I loved the class, the studio, and Gina {owner and instructor} was awesome! If you are in the area make sure you check it out!

IMG_8512

06/09 – 06/15 & 06/10 -06/22

We started potty training B the first week, and I decided that it would be easier if I could be home when he woke up so that we could get our bathroom routine down. We took lots of walks at home and I did some videos when I could squeeze them in.

06/23 – 06/29

Wednesday and Thursday I went to Pure Barre, and was super glad to be back in the swing of things, but damn I was sore.

06/30 – 06/06

Tuesday and Wednesday were Pure Barre days, then we headed to CT for Independence Day festivities, and I spent a lot of time chasing B around and swimming. I purchased a deal for unlimited July & August classes at Pure Barre, so I will be alternating that with running and training!

20140323-223801.jpg

FOOD:

I had another appointment with my nutritionist. I am keeping all the same goals as last time, but I am adding two, the first is to make sure I am eating enough protein at every meal, we’ve discussed numbers, but what works for me  might not work for you, so I will keep those numbers between us. The second goal is to work out 4 times a week, it is going to be a bit of a challenge just because of all the events, travel, and hosting we will be doing, but I will work it out!

What is your summer workout plan?

Birthday, Billy Joel, and Bachelorette

Anyone else think, Beets, Bears, Battlestar Galactica? No, just me? Moving on.

The past few weeks have been crazy busy, so I figured I would catch you up on all the fun stuff.

Last week I turned 30! Yikes, Nick and I decided to rent a party bus and have all our family and friends on board so that we could see everyone we wanted and not have a party at our house. Since we will be at a wedding for Nick’s 30th we decided we’d have a party for both of us! Unfortunately, I still didn’t get to spend time with everyone, but I had a wonderful time, even if my stomach was killing me the next day!

vueveI mean you have to start your birthday with champagne, right?

IMG_8621

And a group shot of course, missing a few people, but we tried!

After that last photo things started to get messy so I will not share those photos ha! But it was a great time regardless!

For my birthday gift, Nick generously bought me tickets to Billy Joel at Fenway. Billy Joel is in my top 5 favorite musicians of all time, and I saw him, I think 8 years ago, when he came to the Garden. Seeing artists at Fenway is amazing, if you live in the city and an artist you like comes to Fenway, GO! it is so worth it!

Prior to the show Nick and I tried this new Greek place that is in the Fenway area, Gyro City, they have authentic Gyros so we had to try them. They were pretty close to what you will get in Greece, so we were very impressed. If you need someone to go with you to try them you know who to ask!

GyroWe also had some amazing Greek fries. Basically, they are thick cut fries with feta and oregano!

GreekFries

After food we headed over to Fenway and walked off our dinner before heading into the concert!

Billy Joel at FenwayNick and I & our view

Billy Joel at Fenway

THE man!

Billy, we are on a first name basis, was amazing. He played a lot of the classic songs, but he also played some songs that only some real hardcore fans would be able to recall. He is also a New York man through and through, so while he played the beloved Sweet Caroline, he did not sing, which I found amusing. I did appreciate that he didn’t sing New York State of Mind, instead he had a young girl come out and sing Boston State of Mind as a nod to everything this city has been through and a show of support. After the concert Nick was looking through his twitter feed and saw some complaints about it, you can’t please everyone, and while I love him singing New York State of Mind, the respect that he gave to Boston was amazing, and made me love him even more! My only complaint is that he did not sing We Didn’t Start the Fire, that is my favorite Billy song, but the concert was amazing regardless!

After a crazy whirlwind week, we headed to Connecticut to spend some time with Nick’s family and I had a bachelorette to partake in!

Mohegan BacheloretteBachelorette

We went to Mohegan sun to have a wonderful dinner, hit the club, and of course gamble. I was spent and can’t believe I stayed up until 3 am!!! I had so much fun with all the wonderful women that came to the bachelorette and I can’t wait to celebrate the wedding soon!

What have you been up to? Anything fun that I’ve missed?

DanceFIT Studio – HOT BalletFIT Review & Giveaway!

Check out and see if you won the BarreFit App Giveaway! If you didn’t win, we have temporarily lowered the price to $1.99 so you can buy it. If you are local, I am giving away a great fitness prize today.

dancefit1

 

Back in April, I was supposed to take part in a great Boston Blogger event at the DanceFIT Studio in Natick, MA, the event was to take DanceFit’s HOT BalletFit class. Unfortunately, due to some circumstances that I couldn’t control I wasn’t able to attend the event at last-minute. Gina, the owner was extremely accommodating and allowed me to take a class at another time.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the studio for the HOT BalletFit class until last weekend. Gina suggested that I drink 50 oz of water prior to the class and to have a light snack with protein, fat, and carbs. The class was at 10:30 am, so I was little apprehensive about how I was going to manage that much water before class, but I was able too.

When I got to the studio, I was early (since I wasn’t sure how bad traffic would be) so Gina showed me around and we chatted awhile before the other clients arrived.

Gina answered all my questions and gave me lots of tips for the class. I had never taken a hot class of any kind before, so she suggested to take small sips of water. To go to into child’s pose at any point during the class or to even leave the room if I needed to.

IMG_8510

The room at the end of class. The beige box in the corner is the heater.

Sunday’s classes can be hit or miss, the week prior to my visit had 14 clients, the day I was there had 4 people registered, but there were only 2 of us in class. A year ago I would’ve been super intimidated by this, but I felt much more comfortable than I thought I would. There was more one-on-one instruction and I appreciate that, especially in a new class.

Weights and Bands! We used the silver ones on the left.

Weights and Bands! We used the silver ones on the left.

So what is HOT BalletFit? It is a full barre workout in a 92 degree room. The class focuses on ballet inspired exercises as well as high intensity cardio & fitness training. The heat aids in detoxifying the body and stretching & lengthening your muscles. There is a mat segment will be introduced toward the end of class.

Our workout started with more traditional moves at the ballet barre, I had taken ballet when I was very young, and I loved it, but I wasn’t able to stay with it. Some moves (and names) I could remember, other moves I had to keep my eyes on Gina in order to keep on beat.

Gina was extremely encouraging and helpful, she demonstrated modified movement for some poses to make it a bit easier or harder. That is something I always appreciate, we aren’t all in the same place on our fitness journey and it’s nice to see a teacher demonstrate different moves for the clients.

After some traditional ballet moves we moved to arm work using the silver weights in the picture above. It definitely took some getting used to, to hold these types of weights instead of the dumbbell style that I am used to. Since there were only 2 of us in the class, Gina would call out instructions to us separately, I needed to keep my elbows up, I also appreciated this, because when you are in a large class sometimes you aren’t sure if you need to correct your form or not.

After the weights we moved to floor work on our yoga mats. The ballet bars were moved to the back of the room and we did everything from planks to child’s pose. Throughout the class there was stretching, not just at the end, and Gina announced times where it would be great to take some water.

I ended up drinking 24 ounces of water during class and immediately following. I also drank about 15 ounces on the ride home and immediately refueled with a banana and almond butter.

IMG_8512

Gina and I post-class

So what did I think of the class? In short, I loved it! Gina was an amazing instructor, she was there to help each client reach their full potential but was also understanding when someone needed a move modified, or to take an extra water break. The studio is gorgeous, and has many classes to take, not just BalletFit. They offer many different types of BalletFit (HOT, Cardio, Stretch, Tone, etc…), they also offer Pilates, Zumba, Hip Hop Cardio (<— need to try ASAP), etc…

I immediately bought the Groupon for the Natick location. Unfortunately, DanceFIT is not super close to where I live currently. However, they have this awesome looking VirtualFIT program, where you Skype with an instructor and 9 other clients and you can take the classes from your home, how perfect is that? I also really want to try the 6FIT Program in the fall!

DanceFit has TWO locations, Natick ( 721 Worcester Road) located above the Dover Squash & Fitness Facility, and Brookline (25 Monmouth Road) located in the Church of Our Savior. Since the Brookline classes are in a church with no air conditioning, the class offerings are limited in the summer.

You can follow DanceFit on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest!

Bittersweet: Leaving Your Hometown

This post was inspired by Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, a novel that exposes the gothic underbelly of an American dynasty, and an outsider’s hunger to belong. Join From Left to Write on May 20 we discuss Bittersweet. As a member, I received a copy of the book for review purposes.

Bittersweet-From-Left-to-Write-Book-Club-Banner

It’s no secret that I don’t spend a lot of time talking about going home to the house I grew up in, my hometown, or life pre-college. It’s not a place that holds a lot of happy memories for me. I don’t feel comfortable or at ease when I am there, so for me it is not a happy place. The problem is I love lots of what Vermont has to offer, I love the idyllic imagery any picture of Vermont gives, I just don’t love what else it reminds me of.

While reading Bittersweet I related to Mabel’s character, the average looking girl from a meager background, with the beautiful wealthy friends. Never feeling accepted, working hard to earn everything she had.  Then Mabel and Ev go to Ev’s family estate, in Vermont of course. They even mention my hometown in the book, the town I went to my first year of college in, and a few places that do hold great memories for me, like Al’s French Frys.

I had to leave Vermont, it just couldn’t give me what I needed out of life. Even though many of the people who used to be in my life suggest that I think I am better than they are because I left, it couldn’t be further from the truth. I just needed a better life, and Vermont wasn’t going to give that to me. At the age of 18, I packed up and went to college. I spent my first 2 summers going home and working the three jobs I had when I was in high school. After my junior year, I had off campus housing and I never went back home.

Leaving has never been easy, there is the guilt that others put on me. At the end of the day, I have to do what is best for me and my family. The life we have now is wonderful. Close to the city, but we still have a backyard. Plenty of friends and family members that live nearby or visit, friends and family that are encouraging and supportive.

But there are many things that I miss about Vermont. The local food, REAL maple syrup, fall foliage, seeing the stars at night, Ben & Jerry’s factory visits, Burlington, Long Trail, Magic Hat, the lack of fast food joints, Cabot cheese, and Dana’s breakfast in Quechee.

I will never forget Vermont, but Boston is my home now.

Weekly Updates: 03/31/14 – 04/13/14

20140323-222747.jpgLast week was rough, with a toddler that is not sleeping super great at night and half of blog land announcing pregnancies and having babies, I needed to take a break. Not that any of you needed to hear a reason, or even cared to.

I have had some really great and consistent weeks of workouts. My nutrition is not stellar. Fasting makes it really difficult, I am pretty much eating a vegan diet, and I have no problem loading on the veggies, but I am getting really bored and since this week is Holy Week, it is no meat or dairy for the entire week. I can’t wait for Easter Dinner and a bite of a chocolate bunny on Sunday!

This fasting is kind of good though, I went shopping for a dress today since I have 4 weekends in a row with events where I need to dress nice, and it was not fun. The dresses that fit weren’t in my budget and vice versa. I wanted to drown my sorrows in a cookie from Mrs. Fields, but since I can’t have dairy, I bought a bottle of water and headed home. Progress?

Now on to the past two weeks of workouts:

Monday, March 31 - Coming off of a 7-day workout streak and the completion of the Pure Barre Challenge, I took a well-deserved and MUCH needed rest day.

Tuesday, April 1 - Back to the barre! The classes were noticeably smaller, not tiny, but not packed either. They also changed the warm-up, apparently they do that every two months, I wasn’t sure if it was an April Fools Day joke, or not.

Wednesday, April 2 – Another barre class with Kelly. The warm-up change was not a joke.

Thursday, April 3 - Rest day number 2 for the week. I am trying to bring two rest days back into the regular rotation. They don’t mean that I don’t do anything. Chasing a toddler around is definitely exhausting, but not the same kind of workout.

Friday, April 4 - Friday’s class is one of my favorites, and I try to never miss it, if I don’t have to. So obviously, that is where I was!

Saturday, April 5 - I took advantage of the fact that we were in town for the weekend and my mom was coming to visit with a class that was a bit later than I normally take.

Sunday, April 6 - I took a ‘Breaking Down the Barre’ at Pure Barre. It was taught by Melissa and Michaella and was for newbies and veterans. I saw people who had never been to a barre class and some women that I watch in class to make sure I am doing the right moves. The class wasn’t a workout, which I didn’t know but my body was grateful for, instead Melissa and Michaella went through an entire class: warm-up, arms, thighs, seat, abs, stretching in slow motion. They showed us what great form looked like and how it should feel, they also showed us modifications. The killer was that they would have us get in perfect form and then check everyone’s form, which took awhile and if you were at the end it could really burn ha. This class definitely helped, I have taken the time to talk to instructors post-class about areas where I am having trouble, but this was still extremely helpful and I definitely recommend it to anyone who takes a class at Pure Barre.

20140323-223801.jpg

Old Picture, Same tough workout

Monday, April 7 - I kept my rest day on Monday, even though Sunday technically wasn’t a real class. B has been sleeping terribly, and it was nice to be able to sleep past 5 am.

Tuesday, April 8 & Wednesday, April 9 - Back at the barre! Another early morning class for the books.

Thursday, April 10 - I took my second rest day of the week. It was a gorgeous day and we had a playdate with friends who live about an hour away. Of course B slept like garbage the night before, but play dates are always worth it.

Friday, April 11 – I accidentally turned my alarm off at some point and woke up at 5:45 am, when I am usually on my way to Pure Barre, I rushed through my am routine as quickly as possible and was on the road in 8 minutes. Thankfully I lay everything out the night before, I made it to the gym with minutes to spare.

Saturday, April 12 - I was going to take a later morning class, but I realized that it would be cutting it too close to B’s Easter Egg Hunt. I ended up getting into the 7:30 am class, and we spent pretty much the rest of the day outside cleaning or inside cleaning.

Overall, I had a pretty good week. I need to add some yoga back into my routine.

How were your past two weeks?
