September 14, 2014 // Meals + Deep Stretch Yoga //
Since I last checked in, I’ve officially joined Orangetheory Fitness! And because I signed up for my particular gym location before it opened, I was able to join their weight loss challenge for free. Weight loss really isn’t a goal that I have - I’m more about the whole look-better-naked goal! - but they’ll be tracking BMI as well, so we shall see how it goes.
I’ll be posting what I eat and my exercise for the duration of the challenge (which technically starts on Monday/Sep 15). I don’t necessarily plan to eat pure Paleo, but I do plan to stay cognizant of my food choices. That means leaning towards gluten-free, keeping cocktail hours in check, etc. Plus, I’m on the hook for at least 3 workout sessions per week at OTF.
Lunch from Metrofresh was Maple Ginger Butternut Squash and the salad was a soba noodle-based salad - both were gluten-free. Dinner was leftover roasted chicken breast and a salad comprised of spinach, arugula, locally-grown heirloom tomatoes, and avocado, tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette.
Exercise was an easy Deep Stretch class with Sarah (above) at Tough Love Yoga, plus some dog walking while I dog-sit a friend’s really sweet schnauzer named Marley.
