It’s the first day of Summer, and the weather is beautiful!
This year, Summer marks the official beginning of a hectic, yet memorable time in my life. I’ve been very busy, all good things, and yes, sometimes blogging has to take a back seat. I’ve never wanted to be that person who blogs their day-to-day life..especially if there is nothing that interesting going on….(besides working, teaching spin, planning a wedding, going to Aruba, buying a house, moving…among other time consuming, yet exciting events)
…..OK, I guess my life is pretty interesting right now
My wedding date is set for May 17th 2014, and I am checking things off my list left and right
- Shower Venue
- Wedding Venue
- Hotel rooms blocked
- Dj, Lighting, Video..etc
- Hair and Make-up
- Wedding Dress
Lets just say I wanted to get the big decisions out of the way ASAP.
I still can’t believe that I am of marriage age, let alone getting married. It’s very surreal.
As for my Spin/Tabata Trek classes, I am still teaching 3x a week and loving every minute of it.
I love motivating, coaching, and teaching those who take my classes. There is nothing better than seeing my students sweaty, tired, yet proud faces at the end of their workout. It is a very rewarding job that I am lucky enough to have.
As for my recent meals and snacks, nothing has changed too much, except many of my meals are now “on the go”
Energize and hydrate
Oats and spinach with Greek yogurt…..Oats and spinach with Egg whites
(yes I add spinach to everything. eat your greens!)
Dark cocoa covered berries and almonds…Coconut Oil spray for cooking my chicken and other pan related eats.
Obviously I eat a lot more than this. Tupperware containers are my best friends.
As I’ve said before, you can always follow my Instagram @JenaMar1e, where you will find daily photo updates of recipes, new healthy products, workouts, and check ins.
Luckily I am on vacation for the next 2 weeks (one week spent in Aruba!), so some much needed relaxation time is on its way!
SO..to officially welcome the start of an amazing Summer, it’s time to take our workout outside.
Grab a hat, sneakers, sunblock (at least spf15), and let’s get going!
- Start with a 3 mile walk, jog, or run, making sure your heart rate stays at at least 110 bpm.
- Follow with this total body circuit that can be done anywhere, and cinches every inch of your beautiful body.
- End with 5 minutes of stretching, and make sure to hydrate and refuel with a mix of complex carbs and lean protein.
