Today’s calorie count


Today’s carbs came from old-fashioned oatmeal, my protein bar, and fruit. I could have done better by eating some veggies.

Today’s workout – Spin

Today was spin with Charletha. I love me some Charletha. Unlike Angie’s, her classes do not depend on on the music; rather it’s just background. Charletha’s spin class is a lot of 8-counts up hills or sprinting or both, then some recovery.  It’s an equally good (but very different), spin class. I’m always drenched with sweat , panting for breath, and wobbling around on my jello legs afterward.


Monday’s workouts – TRX and spin

Same as Friday – TRX and then spin later in the afternoon. I also walked 4 miles today.

TRX was a bit more challenging today. I love that TRX can change every workout and never get old or un-challenging.

Later in the afternoon I went to Angie’s spin class – she’s just the best instructor. Since I’ve been going to spin for a few years and have had different instructors, I think timing the music to the moves is really crucial! Angie definitely does just that.

But I know from past experience that I cannot out-exercise a bad diet! Here’s today’s report.

Today’s nutrition


Face of the Day

Today I went to the movies. I didn’t want to wear too much makeup since I walked there and back, ~6 miles total in 90-degree weather. It’s October! When is autumn going to start??

Just a few products today

This is the first time I’ve used Aromaleigh foundation. I’m going to finish the sample before I write a review on it, but so far so GREAT.

One of my favorite blush/lips combinations is Everyday Minerals Snuggle and Eyeko’s Strawberry Fat Balm. They make me look bright, awake, and dare I say it…youthful. Unfortunately, both Eyeko and Everyday Minerals seem to have been re-branded since I purchased these items. Eyeko now only sells mascara, and Everyday Minerals changed their formulas…so I’ll just enjoy the items I have now. Snuggle blush should be easy enough to replace, but I’m not looking forward to the day I run out of my Fat Balm!
