Diet & Fitness

Workout, city eats, and a little inspiration!

Hey Friends!

Today has been a day! sheesh! I haven’t been sleeping well out here for the last week and I’m thinking its because Carsons not here! Crazy how much I am accustomed to having him there at night.  I had a long day so I’m hoping I tired myself out and can get some rest tonight!

The day started with a workout I stole from a fellow blogger, Katie Carso. Check her out here.

Cardio-Interval Elliptical Workout:

Warm up 5 minutes incline 5 resistance 3
5 minutes  forward on incline of 17 on elliptical resistance 6
5 minutes backward incline 17 resistance 6
5 minute forward incline 17 resistance 7
5 minute backward incline 17 resistance 7
5 minutes forward incline 17 resistance 6
5 minutes backward incline 17 resistance 6
5 minutes cool down incline 5 resistance 3

I was a sweaty mess after! I did some abs on the ball and called it a day!

I decided it was time to get a little laundry done so I headed out to find the closet coin laundry spot I could find! I had to share this with you guys because I felt so independent! I’m not going to lie, it was a little sketchy…

My laundry is inside there if you couldn’t tell;) I had never used a coin laundromat before and it was kind of an adventure! after some retail therapy I decided to go find a Vegan Restaurant called “Fresh” I had heard about. (I’m not a complete vegan but I love vegan places to eat!) After asking for directions about 6 times and wandering for about an hour I finally found it! It was definitely worth the walk and wait.  It was packed!


Sat down and immediately knew that that was what I wanted! Doesn’t that sound delicious? I had it with a sesame tahini dressing!

So so so so good…Super foods all over the place! My juice was even delicious. I had the “detoxifier” which had apple, kale, celery, spinach, and parsley! yum! I have to admit I had a little bit of a stomach ache about an hour after eating so I’m still trying to determine what upset my tummy.  Maybe just a little too much detox? Not sure yet, but ill figure it out:) Overall, I loved Fresh! I wish there were more food options like this in Las Vegas.  I think Vegas needs to provide more fun eats like this for healthy eaters like me! It makes eating healthy delicious and easy.  So thank you Toronto for having tasty options:)

Now…I dont want to bore you but tonight was our night off and I went to a Contemporary class at a local studio.  I fell in love with the teacher.  She was incredible! Loved her, loved her choreography, and loved class! Such a blessing to share the studio with artists and watch something beautiful being created.  It reminded me why I love what I do and its always nice to take class and just dance.  Just move, breathe, and dance! no restrictions apply.  Sometimes I miss out on artistry doing the same show nightly so I was grateful to be inspired tonight.  Reminded why I love it! So..thank you again Toronto for providing a great day!
