It’s been a while since I did a recap! I had a long weekend for Easter last week so there were a lot of fun fitness opportunities as well as time spent with family and friends. I drove out to visit Max and his family in the desert (he was on spring break the whole week so went home earlier) on Wednesday after my classes let out. It was a quick trip because I knew I had to be back to teach early Friday morning, but still very fun and relaxing!

Jillian Michael’s Killer Buns and Thighs Level 3…this was tough but I thought it was the most fun of all three levels…I was sore after, though!
Tennis with Max! We played for about an hour or so and got 2 sets in. The first set he won 6-1 (though we got to deuce every game!) and the second he won 6-5 (again lots of deuces!). It was fun…we love playing tennis together.
After I drove home, I needed some yoga! I stopped by Ignite Yoga Fusion for a great Ignite 1 class led by Courtney.

4:45am came early but I was so thrilled to be subbing the 5:30am Vinyasa Bootcamp at Ignite. VB is my favorite class to teach…it’s a combination of a fast paced vinyasa class with cardio/body weight sculpting moves. Basically, lots of lunges. So. Much. Fun.
After going home to grab some breakfast, I returned to the studio for a double session. Hot Vinyasa taught by Kim and Ignite 1 taught by Kevin. I was tired after that! I spent the rest of the day relaxing, enjoying my family and catching up on homework.
Saturday, March 30
Subbed an 8am Gentle Flow class. So not my normal pace of class but the students really enjoyed it, which made me feel more confident. I’m so used to teaching fast paced, fitness-based classes that it’s weird for me to slow it down.
After that, I took Courtney’s 9:15am Ignite 1, then subbed 10:30 am hot Sculpt 75 (muuuuch more my pace! this was a super sweaty, high energy 75 minutes) then took Kelly’s noon vinyasa. Yes, I spent about 5 hours in the studio – that’s how excited I was to be able to take/teach more classes at Ignite! I seriously love the studio and all the teachers there and miss it when I’m at school and can’t take as many classes there.
My body was tired after that, so I drank a TON of water and then went and got the hour long massage my mom and given me for Christmas (yes, it took me this long to cash it in). It felt reallyyyy good. Though, apparently I have a really weird spine. Like, every 5 minutes the massage lady would say, “Oh. That’s weird.” or “I haven’t seen that before.”
After the massage, I went home and laid on the couch and ate popcorn. I was starving from my yoga filled morning!
Sunday, March 31 (Easter)
This was such a family filled day. My mom and I woke up early and had breakfast and waited for my dad, sister and brother to wake up. Then we opened Easter gifts (I got a $25 Lululemon card and a $10 Starbucks card) and got ready for church. We went to my aunt and uncle’s house for a late lunch.
After we came home, I did Jillian Michael’s Killer Buns and Thighs, Level 1 (~40 min) followed by P90X Core Synergistics (~60 min) with my dad. I was definiely tired after both of those videos!
Monday, April 1
I woke up and went to an 8am Vinyasa Bootcamp class. So much fun but my legs were on fire! Then, my friend Joe and I went on a hike near my house. It was a pretty easy hike but we had a good time and walked pretty fast so I feel like I got a great workout. It was perfect weather too, which was nice.
Later, I taught a 60 minute vinyasa class followed by a 60 minute Power Flow class. Somehow, I had a lot of energy for power flow at 8:15pm and it was a killer workout.
Tuesday, April 2
Back to school. :p I went to Bird Rock Yoga and did two vinyasa classes, each around 75 minutes. Later, I taught a power flow class. I also registered for fall semester! Senior year can’t come soon enough!
Wednesday, April 3
9am vinyasa flow…this one was challenging and lots of fun! Between classes, I went to a 45 minute circuit workout class. Later, I taught vinyasa at PLNU. Wednesdays are long so I was pretty tired.
