Last Week’s Camera Roll + Workouts

Meet Team Equitas Academy #3! The six of us are going to be spending a lot of time together building our school. This Thursday we met to plan Kindergarten diagnostic testing which will begin next week. It’s going to be a great opportunity for the teachers to meet their scholars and our families, and for us to starting planning our instruction based on diagnostic results. There was such an enthusiastic energy amongst the team. Work has been getting busier and busier, but everyday I’m loving it more. I am so grateful for this opportunity. 11760069_10103275397324424_1794231421641419089_n

I finally did it. I downloaded the snapchat app. This morning I gave Brent a tutorial. Am I too old for snapchat?IMG_1116Monday I went to LA Sports Massage for 60 minutes of torture. Good torture though. I got in trouble for tensing up and trying to crawl away from my masseuse. The entire staff at LA Sports Massage is amazing. They find the deepest knots and work them out. They shouldn’t call it massage because it really is therapy. I asked my primary care provider to write me a prescription for monthly sports massage, so I can use my FSA to pay for treatment. I’ll be going once a month while I train for New York to hopefully keep tightness and injuries at bay. And no I’m not getting paid to tell you they’re good. I wish!

Monday morning after my run with Marta I went on a solo beach walk with my groundworks coffee. Beautiful start to the day. FullSizeRender

Not our most flattering picture, but yoga was sweaty. Heather at The Green Yogi kicked our butt, hence the hair wings.FullSizeRender (40)

Grilling marinated portobellos, sweet potatoes, other veggies and onion focaccia. If you cook with Alaina, you’re guaranteed a good meal.FullSizeRender (42)

And I signed up for my next half marathon! Come join me!Screen Shot 2015-07-18 at 1.54.51 PM
