bwhahahahahaha! i cracked UP at that meme and immediately sent it to my brother. he understands my humor like nobody else. get it?? happy first day of FALL, yall!
in the studio extra early waiting for my coffee to kick in and ready to teach some HIIT. i usually wear my Lifetime jacket to feel cool but i needed it this morning. the weather was fantastic at the crack of dawn; the exact opposite of humid and stuffy.
afterwards i did about 10 min of steady state cardio on the arc trainer (cause i got cold again after class) before hitting the weights for some upper body work. bring on the leggings, yoga pants, and all things pumpkin! i was sipping on the last of my coffee spiked with International Delight's fat-free Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer on my way home.
later that evening, i had the pleasure of hosting my very first small group. yep, comfort zone aborted. joining one, sure, ok. hosting one? me? no way. i remember signing up for it several weeks back, but only up until a few days ago did i realize the magnitude of what i had done. people really were signing up to come, and they were actually coming. whoa. the food responsibilities fall on the host, and well, i was SUPER excited about that part, you already know. i had to sincerely pray about keeping the whole point of the small group and our curriculum as the main focus though, not the food! don't get me wrong, the food needed to be on point, but ensuring our meeting was well facilitated from beginning to end was just as important.
thank God, it went WELL! excited to meet again next week.
so, here's what we munched on:
fresh fruit salad with blackberries, strawberries, and nectarines,
i got all the ingredients needed to make my kopy kate Central Market Cranberry Pepita Kale Salad and did just that.
next, Zucchini Pizza Cruise Ships made with 93% lean ground turkey, smoky chipotle cheese, and turkey pepperoni.
homemade guac and butternut squash tortilla chips,
and finally, i cut up and toasted some naan bread to be dipped into the hummus or the guac.
