Swimming, running and Body Pump oh my.

Getting back into running after an injury has been going better than expected! I think lap swimming 5 days a week has helped to keep up my aerobic fitness. 

I swim for 30 minutes each morning and I usually swim 18 laps, which equals .5 miles. Each time I swim I like it more and more, and am so glad Kelly talked me into it!

I ran yesterday (Monday) and did the same four mile loop I did on Sunday and remained at an average pace of 8:46. I took today off of running because I want to ease back into it.

My good friend Haley and I went to the Y after work today to attend the Body Pump class. I went to Body Pump in college and LOVED it so I have been excited to get back into it.

My arms are still shaking as I type this. It is such a great and fun way to lift weights because it is choreographed to music, and you hit all the major muscles.

We did so many squats and lunges I am going to be sore clear until this weekend. I love it!

Since I talked about protein yesterday, I decided to take a picture of the protein shake I had this morning.

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • cinnamon to taste


I usually eat breakfast when I get to my classroom around 7:20 because I don’t have enough time at home. When I was in Germany this past summer I had muesli at the hotel and fell in love with it.

I found some muesli from Hodgson’s Mill and it is so easy it’s ridiculous! I measure out 1/2 cup dry muesli and put in in a bowl and then add 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, let it sit overnight in the fridge, then it’s ready to eat in the morning!


It is a healthy and QUICK breakfast!

And just because…


He’s so cute.

Have a great Tuesday night!
