peak | week 6 recap

my week in food | personal photographs

This has been one of the craziest and busiest weeks I have had in a long time. Full of new exciting projects, including this website for my dear friend MC; an amazing personal trainer, nutrition coach and wellness guru. She is uplifting, passionate, and has such a bright spirit…making her an absolute pleasure to work with. I worried that with all of the deadlines, long hours, and very little sleep, there would be no way I could find the time or muster up the energy to make it the gym. But, this wasn’t the case at all.  I found that I craved my workouts even more; giving me the opportunity to take a mental break, get a good healthy sweat, and of course work out some of the stress and tension. Not to mention, I felt re-energized and clear-minded afterwards…ready to get back to work!  I think this speaks volumes about the positive affects of maintaining balance in your life. Workouts for the week:

  • monday | circuit training
  • tuesday | peak cardio strength
  • wednesday | pure cardio + groovalicious
  • thursday | peak cardio strength
  • friday | rest day
  • saturday | step + pure strength
  • sunday | peak cardio interval burn

Knowing I was headed into a very hectic week, I made pretty much all of my food ahead of time so that I would not fall back into my old habits of ordering thai take out while working into the wee hours of the morning. I was able to eat healthy + light + satisfying snacks and meals. Not to mention, I had a food photo shoot this weekend (keeping our fingers crossed for an exciting new project on the horizon). Luckily for me, I was asked to feature healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free recipes….which of course we enjoyed after the final photographs were taken! This week taught me perhaps, one of the biggest lessons learned from this experience: the importance of maintaining a healthy balance in life, and taking a few moments for yourself to re-charge.

Lesson learned from week 6:

  • balance | It is so important to take a few moments for yourself to re-charge and step away from our busy lives. Whether it be a hike, a killer sweat session, or preparing a simple, healthy meal that is good for your body + mind.

Final countdown…only 2 weeks left!
