I have had such an incredible week! This past weekend I rocked the P28 Protein Bread Booth at the Natural Products Expo West with "Billy the Breadman" and Chris C., one of the three brothers that owns New York Bakery. I felt right at home with my fellow east coasters and we definitely had a lot of laughs. It was also really fun to see my friends when they came by the booth to visit me. By Sunday, I was loopy with exhaustion I had a raspy voice to show for it. After enjoying some extra sleep on Monday morning, I didn't have time to be tired and I had to immediately switch gears in preparation for my shoot with Noel Daganta this week at 6 Degree Fitness.
Noel was refreshing to shoot with and he explained that certain poses translates best into print. He is as talented, as he is friendly, and I felt very comfortable shooting with him. After the 5-hour shoot, I indulged in some Chardonnay followed by a fabulous dinner of red potatoes, grilled burger patties and an array of sauteed veggies. I was a happy girl! Although I haven't had any cheat meals scheduled into my diet, these mini mental breaks always rejuvenate me. It makes me even more excited to jump back on plan and get back to the gym.
Today I hit the gym with all new workouts... although I will sheepishly admit that I am sore from yesterday's shoot of holding poses and squeezing muscles. The first part of today's workout included a lot of compound movements using kettlebells followed by weighted abs and a series of twenty 30 second sprints. I finished my sprints in 18:36 with minimal rest between each sprint at a 9.0 speed. I challenge you to try it out and beat my time! It's hard to do that many sprints with such little recovery time, and I had to make sure I tallied each sprint so I wouldn't lose track of how many I had left. Most likely Monday I will be starting a new diet as well and you all know that I'm hoping it includes oatmeal!
Thank you to the team of people that help make it all happen, including 6 Degree Fitness for closing the gym and providing an awesome location for our shoot.
