Hy friends! Hope you had a good week! Is it jut me or do they fly by? Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday’s Food and Fitness!
This is a bit of a mishmash (again) from the last two weeks because I haven’t posted much of what I’ve made!
Grilled chicken with watermelon salsa and a peach with basil couscous. So yum!
Grilled fish with pineapple salsa, tomato and avocado salad and cilantro and black bean rice.
Steak tacos with a watermelon salsa. You see a salsa theme here?
I also recreated the sparkling trio I had at 28 Atlantic. So good!!
First up, I have another exciting Levo League Event to tell you about! This month we are partnering with DMF (Dance Motivation Fitness) for a *free* class on Thursday, August 21st at 6pm. It’s going to be an amazing dance party plus a chance to network and meet other professional women just like you! You can read about DMF here , here and here. And to RSVP to the event, go here. Hope to see you there!
So remember when I told you all about the fabulous new Reebok FitHub in Union Square? Well, I was back there this week for another free class! I was super excited to take Les Mills BodyStep with Program Director, Mark Nu’u. I started taking BodyStep way way back when I lived in Australia and always try to get to a class whenever back. When I heard this was happening, I was going come he’ll or high water (or baby).
The great part about the class was that Mark gave fantastic modifications because this class can be really intense. I was nervous before class knowing that it is super tough, but I ended up doing great keeping my step height low and modifying jumping moves. It was still such a good workout! My calves were sore! So much fun.
I kind of geek out getting to meet people like Mark because I feel like I hear about them all the time so they are super famous in my book! I mentioned this back when I took a master class with Loretta Bates for Zumba. I’m such a nerd! But I feel really really lucky to get these experiences living in NYC, even if no one gets up for me and my big belly on the subway! #worthit
Readers, how many times a week do you cook dinner? Who do you geek out about? What’s the best part about where you live?
When I’m at home, I try to cook dinner every night. Now that I’m away (in Toronto), sometimes I’m tempted to get stuff out, because it’s a new city and I want to try things. But I would say I still eat at home 5 times a week!
