Hi there! I actually don’t have any photos of trails, sunrises, street furniture, etc. today. Yesterday was a no run, cross train day — so I spent it trying out a Bosu ball class at our temporary gym!It was pretty good class. Hardest part for me was the hip-crushing reverse plank with leg raise (like this, but with our arms balancing on the Bosu. Ouch!).
And the easiest part was showing up. Unlike in DC, where I usually had to make a reservation for a fitness class and show up early to claim a spot, the Nashville fitness classes I’ve tried have been been the definition of “drop-in.” People stroll in and out of class at any time, and nobody seems to be bothered. Most of the classes I’ve been to here have started a good five minutes late and are full of regulars just looking to hang out. It’s pretty laid-back. I think I like it!
Of course there’s a lot more to say about our move to Nashville, but I’m waiting a couple months to really collect my thoughts, move in to an actual home, and then write about it. Speaking of our home, I swung by yesterday — and it’s almost finished! Woohoo.One thing I know I’ll love about our house is its big kitchen!
Until then, I’m trying my hardest to cook up what I can in our hotel — like this salad! We scored some fresh lettuce at the farmers’ market over the weekend and it’s been a game-changer on the lunch front.The “recipe” (aka take everything out of my fridge and pile it on top of each other) is pretty similar to this salad, with a few changes.The lineup:
- Roasted vegetables (pepper, carrots, corn, and baby tomatoes)
- Roasted chicken (I just wrap a chicken breast in aluminum foil and throw it in the oven next to the veggies)
Dressed with a mix of white wine vinegar, lemon, olive oil, mustard, garlic, and s+p. Ta-da!Off to start my day. Have a great one!
