Coffee, Push Ups, & TRX Straps
Yesterday at lunch I finally went and bought a coffee machine (and makins’). Torrance and I have been spending a fortune at Starbucks because we both have a horrible coffee habit, so I figured this would save us some money.
I have never really been a big “regular” coffee drinker (usually just espresso) but I decided I will just get used to it for the sake of our bank account.
Torrance likes the Dunkin Donuts regular blend so I picked us up some of that and my creamer of choice.
I am sipping on it this morning and I cant say it is wonderfully delicious… maybe I need to experiment with different blends/types of coffee (Im open to suggestions!)
Oh, and whoever came up with the idea for the timers on coffee machines to be able to set it to automatically brew at a certain time, is a genius.
And alongside that is the most picture perfect PB banana sandwich I have ever made.
Lovely isnt it?
And in case you are wondering, I havent seen the husky on the neighbors porch since yesterday at lunch. I didnt check to see if the poop was cleaned up though (it was dark still this morning when I thought about it, so couldnt see).
So last night at fitness class I definitely felt like I missed class for a week and a half… it was rough.
We did some pretty good moves though - We had a little bigger group last night than usual - there were 13 of us, where there is usually between 6 and 10 so we had a few extra stations than we normally do. I love how organized and prepared our trainer is though – even though he doesnt always know how many to expect he is always seamlessly prepared in case there is a larger (or smaller) group.
I have a seen a lot of people around the blogs talking about TRX workouts. At every class, we always have at least one station/move that involves the TRX straps, and the majority of the time, I think it is usually one of the hardest stations for me. Last night with the straps we did a squat jump with the straps and on the jump up we pulled ourselves up with the straps and tucked our knees. I liked it because it was challenging but I could only do 2 or 3 in a row without pausing in between reps.
We also did spiderman push ups last night… even regular push ups are not my forte so I struggled with this one too.
I definitely left class feeling like I got a really good workout, and I will be back tonight for more ;)
And when I returned home, I was happy to hear that Torrance was so hungry that he had already eaten some left overs for dinner so I didnt even need to cook. I ate some raisin bran and an orange for dinner (I’m so wild).
Have a good day!
Any suggestions for coffee I should try? What kind is your favorite?
Do you like push ups? And have you ever done any workouts with TRX straps?
