Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! 🙂

So, yesterday, when my alarm clock went off at 5:01 AM, I was not ready to start the day. Oh my gosh, it was the last thing I wanted to do. It was gray and rainy outside, and I was soooo comfy in my bed, but, of course, I had a full day planned. Up and at ’em!

The first stop of my day: Starbucks. I might have been their first customer of the day. Haha!

I ordered a decaf doppio over ice and added half & half to it. I also brought my breakfast from home – Seed-tastic Overnight Chia-Flax Pudding with a big ol’ scoop of peanut butter.

I checked my email while I ate my breakfast and then I ordered Qman a new Lollacup and some replacement pieces because suddenly we have, like, no sippy cups. Where do they go!?! I actually bought a couple of new ones from Target just a couple of weeks ago, but Qman is not a fan. He’s a die-hard Lollacup lover, so I figured I might as well order a new one and revive the ones with missing pieces.

After that I registered for an upcoming event with our business mentor, Dan Martell. Sales Pipeline Intensive? Oh, yes, Designed to Fit Nutrition is venturing into the world of software.

Introducing: Nutrition House Software Systems! In January 2018, we’ll offer our kick-ass, totally custom DTFN software to the masses.

If you’re currently coaching nutrition clients/making meal plans and you want to grow your business or simply save yourself some time, please drop me an email at tina@designedtofitnutrition.com. We’re looking for Early Adopters to try our software this fall before it launches in early 2018.

After spending a few hours at Starbucks work,work, working, it was time to break at sweat at CrossFit. The strength part of the workout was 1 Rep Max Cleans, and I hit my previous max (#145), no problem (I actually did it twice), but I could not get passed it. So many fails. Whomp whomp. It just wasn’t my day.

The WOD was a good one! Holy cow, I had Bambi legs by the end! (I subbed C2B Pull-Ups for the Muscle Ups.)

Back at home, I quickly showered and made a protein shake to go. In the mix: Frozen banana, strawberries, SFH vanilla protein powder, almond milk, and water.

After that, I packed up my lunch and hit the road for a dentist appointment. FYI: My sneakers are the new Revel running/lifestyle shoe from Brooks. They have a knit pattern on them (and I don’t want them to get dirty), so they’re more of a lifestyle shoe for me, but you can totally run in them. Long story short: They’re super cute and comfy!! 🙂

Post-dentist, I met Kerrie at the Captial One Cafe to do ALLTHETHINGS. While there, I broke into my lunch, which was ground chicken mixed with rice, spinach, and cowboy caviar from Trader Joe’s.

I also snacked on a mini Chocolate Cherry Health Warrior Bar and this delicious little pasty sample pictured below. Yum!

I finally packed up a little after 5:00 PM and drove home. Dinner was leftovers and meal prep randomness from the fridge. I’m glad we had food ready to go because I was hungry!

I totally flaked on taking a photo of my dinner, but I had leftover grilled chicken with sweet potato ribbons (from Trader Joe’s), feta, and broccoli. I did, however, snap this photo of Mal zapping Qman with a Proton Pack at the table. Ha!

Question of the Day

What awesome adventure have you been on this year? Or do you have a fun one planned for 2018? 

P.S. I’m competiting in Massage Envy’s  “Train Like a Pro Challenge,” so I’ll be using their all new Total Body Stretch to (hopefully) keep my muscle imbalances and related injuries in check. I want to train for a half marathon this fall, so my goal is to be able to run for 90 minutes without injury before I commit. Keep an eye out for more updates! In the meantime, please VOTE FOR ME over on the Train Like a Pro website. You can vote everyday and it only takes 2 seconds! TIA! 🙂
