What did you do this weekend? The Hubs and I finally ventured over to the High Line on the west side of Manhattan. It’s park that was created on old railroad tracks that ran above street level.
It was quite an enjoyable walk for a Friday evening to watch the sunset!
I have to say, the views were not bad at all!
I also hit up a bachelorette party this weekend with a 1920’s theme. Thanks to everyone who voted for my dress on Instagram. This one won:
So, you didn’t think I was going to leave you hanging with the Seven Day Detox Plan did ya? Heck no!! So as you may have heard from last week’s post, the seven day detox plan became a six day detox plan. I don’t feel bad. In fact, I feel good! Since days 5 and 6 looked really similar in all respects, I’m going to combine them if that’s cool with you.
I stuck with my healthy breakfast of Greek yogurt with berries, chia seeds and raw almonds. For lunch on Day 5 I ended up getting a turkey sandwich from Le Pain Quotidien. The piece de resistance for day 5 was really the amazing dinner I made! Remember all those healthy veggies I bought? Well, I picked up some polenta from the grocery store and cooked up a nice batch of it. I sautéed the squash and the eggplant with some olive oil and finished it off with some good quality balsamic vinegar. I then spooned that veggies mixture on top of the polenta, added some fresh tomatoes and basil and some parmesan cheese. I also made a small stack of three heirloom tomato slices with mozzarella, basil and balsamic, which I also had for lunch on Day 6. Holy goodness! Everything was so fresh and delicious!
My water treat for the second half of the week was cucumber and basil infused. Anything to get you to drink more, right!?
I did some of the Blogilates DVD and MAN were my abs hurting! I can’t wait to give you guys the full review! I also finished up my Zumba choreo, which was a definite workout. Be on the lookout for that upcoming video.
I applied some self-tanning moisturizer to extend my summer glow. My favorite kind is L’Oreal Sublime Bronze. It works the best! I also gave myself a mini at-home facial with these products.
I figure, why spend $100 when I can do it myself!
Listened to my meditation app before bed and managed to fit in 10 minutes of Athleta’s Morning Yoga with YogaGlo in honor of National Yoga Month.
Omg I always wanted to go to the Highline! In fact, it’s one of my top 3 to-dos the next time I visit NYC! I’ll just live vicariously through your pictures. We must meet whenever I decide to book my flight!
PS: You and your husband make such a cute couple. Gorgeous dress. 🙂
I’ve been to the High Line with my grandparents who live in NY – such an awesome idea! Atlanta has something similar from an old rail line called the Belt Line. Not as cool as what you have but they’re working on it :).
Excellent workout as always. It's challenging, fun and easily one of my favorite workouts!
Fantastic class! Great technique pointers. Always new exercises to challenge oneself!
I am excited to take classes with Brittany in person this summer! I have followed Brittany online for some time. I particularly like the Barre and Pilates workout videos. Her workout techniques reflect current thinking and best practices. She supports all levels of fitness. Definitely worth a try!
Brittany is the BEST. She is inspirational, motivational and innovative. No two classes are ever the same. I'm sad when the summer classes end, but I'm looking forward to checking out her online classes this fall and winter.
My wife and I decided to give Balance Barre Fitness a try and we were not disappointed. We thought the classes would be pretty easy but were surprised at how rigorous they were. The class was great for working on our coordination and core strength. I don't get to many ...
