I love spring—I have this feeling like it’s all uphill from here! I also love weekends, and I’m on spring break from 1/9 of my work responsibilities. I’m going to do work tonight until I have things caught up, so I can relax tomorrow and go to a new yoga class. Anyone in Rochester/Canandaigua area should come—it’s free! My friend Sandy is doing a Mukta class at 12:30 at Grounded by Yoga in Bloomfield. It’s approximately 20 minutes from Pittsford Plaza and about 10 minutes from the main intersection at the bottom of Main Street in Canandaigua. (Email me if you’re coming!)
I’ve been juicing a lot this week.
I’m going to be redesigning my life slightly over the next three months. I’m excited–we’re moving, I’m going on three vacations, and I have new projects in the works. I also just realized that my gym plans to charge me $234 for adding three months onto my membership (that ends May 8th), so I’m dumping the gym membership. Seriously, I switched to that gym because it was cheaper than Midtown, but since the short-term nature of my commitment to them is going to prevent me from saving money (and it’s going to be summer…and I have all the equipment I need at home to work out anyway), I’ll be gym-less until I move in August.
As a supplement to that, I’m going to plan some straightforward home workouts using minimal equipment. I’ll post them here if anyone is interested (I have a degree in exercise science and an ACSM certification). My philosophy on working out is getting the most bang for your buck (I like a high benefit to effort ratio). I don’t want to look like Zuzana from BodyRock or work as hard as she does, and I don’t think many other people do either (even if no one admits it!)…but I like the short format, and the strategies of variety and muscle confusion.
Do you belong to a gym? Why or why not? What’s your favorite type of workout?
Are you doing any spring cleaning?
Here’s one of my favorite cheap cleansing facial masks: The Gunk Magnet Facial
Stay tuned—I think on Sunday I’m going to be posting a really awesome giveaway!
