I didn’t get to the gym on Sunday but I did end up walking around downtown for a bit after checking out the bridal show at the Stampede Grounds. I got a 45 minute walk in which was longer than it felt like. Time definitely went by faster outside walking than on the elliptical at the gym.


I did my first Group Power workout of the week on Monday at the Y. It felt really good to be back at it. It was the October 2017 release again so it was nice to go in knowing what was going to come.

Since I had such an easy workout the day before it felt really good to get back at it, work hard, and sweat a ton.


My workout on Tuesday was some cardio on the elliptical. I put on a workout playlist and got to it. (You can find all of my workout playlists here.)

I spent 30 minutes on the elliptical and another 5 minutes on the track cooling down. I ended up getting to the gym early on Tuesday so it felt really good to have my workout done early and get on with the rest of my day.


I took a rest day on Wednesday.


I took another Group Power class on Thursday, and this this time it was the new October 2019 release. It was my first time doing it so I felt a bit more uncoordinated than normal. I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it after a few more classes. I really liked the shoulder track in it.


I ended off the work week with my final Group Power class of the week. Once again it felt really good to work hard. My legs were sore today as a result of adding more weight to my squats and lunges yesterday.

I have a feeling that I’m going to be feeling it for another day or two. It’s a good thing that I don’t have another strength training workout planned til Monday.


My last workout of the week will be spent on the elliptical for some steady state cardio. I’m also going to audit a session of yoga teacher training (more on that here), so I assume that there will be a yoga practice involved with that.


I’ve been craving all the chicken this week, so there’s been a lot of that in my meals this week – including everything from tuna salad to adding it to vegetable soups.

This particular lunch included shredded chicken, coleslaw, hard boiled egg whites, sliced green bell pepper, and some teriyaki beef jerky. It was a pretty simple but really tasty meals.

I had one lunch out with my dad this week. We ended up at one of our favorite pubs. I ordered the chicken sandwich on a lettuce bun and it was delicious.

You can’t see it in the photo, but besides chicken there’s also brie, apples, and that’s raspberry mayo in that small black cup. It was so good! It’s definitely one of my favorite items on their menu.

Tuna salad is one of those things that I don’t think is appreciated but is a staple around here. It has a ton of protein in it that I love and the mayo (obviously) makes it taste good.

I found these Salted Caramel Coco Rolls at the grocery store and they were just as delicious as they sound. They were so good in fact that they only lasted a few days before they were gone.
