Greek Style & Workout Wednesday

How is your week? Mine has been the usual hectic-ness- but I’ve been enjoying every minute :) I was really excited to see the Athenos Challenge that has been going on around blog world. P1090266

Athenos feta is one of my favorite brands and I am a HUGE fan of Greek style salads. With the weather getting hotter and hotter in SC, cooler dinners have become more appealing. On Monday, I made up a ginormous Greek salad with spinach, romaine, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes and feta. I later also topped the salad with some hummus (mmm):

 P1090267

On the side, I had a chunk of my homemade focaccia bread.

P1090268

The focaccia was supposed to be for a blogger meet up we were going to have on Monday night, but due to various circumstances, we had to reschedule. Guess Josh and I will have to eat all the focaccia ourselves, bummer ;). I also had a big bowl of melon:

Josh had a big salad too, but minus the feta,sundried tomatoes and hummus + shrimp. I also made a grilled artichoke and cheese sandwich for him using the focaccia:

How are your workouts coming along this week? My schedule is looking as follows:

  • Monday: Ran to warm up, Taught Body Pump
  • Tuesday: Taught Body Attack
  • Wednesday: Off
  • Thursday: Teach 45 minute Body Step, 45 minute Body Pump, Body Step launch practice
  • Friday:  Teach Body Attack
  • Saturday:  Teach Body Step & Pump
  • Sunday: Off

This week is a little heavy, so I plan to be super lazy on my off days ;). Do you have any group fitness questions? Keep them coming! I have the Group Fitness post in the works. Enjoy the rest of your work/school week.

PS- Anyone get these in the mail yesterday? I can’t wait to try them- Eggos bring me back to my childhood!!

Love feta cheese--definitely one of my favorites :-)

K from ksgoodeats said...

I rediscovered my love for feta about a month ago. My tastebuds have been deprived for so long! I actually just bought the exact container as you a few days ago. Hmm...Eggo pizza? Looks kind of good, not going to lie! By the way, I'll gladly take one of Josh's sandwiches ;) Artichokes and cheese? Yes, please!

Did you see RHNJ Monday night?! Craze!! I also saw a rumor (which they already denied) that RH was coming to D-town. I was SOCLOSE!! Happy Wednesday :)

Bo said...

That salad looks great...Your schedule reminds of my group fitness teaching days...Driving from gym to gym teaching at least 3 classes a day...I miss it sometimes.

Holly said...

LOVE feta! Next to goat cheese, it's my favorite. :-) I need to get some sundried tomatoes to add to my salads....that sounds delcious!

"Leggo my Eggo" hahaha I loved those commercials as a kid. Those pizzas look FANTASTIC. I can't wait to see if you like them!!

Maria said...

Yea for feta! I am loving this month of feta eating:)

Katie said...

I LOVE feta! It goes so well with so many things... I put it in a quinoa/pepper/salmon salad last night and it was so good!

Good lord, I remember Eggos! I had a babysitter who used to make them for me with American cheese and maple syrup. It was surprisingly good!

Krista said...

I love feta. I think it's probably my fave cheese! Bummer that the meet up had to be cancelled, though!

I'm totally contemplating teaching here in Spokane, but I don't know how much time I'm going to have with my school schedule this next semester plus all the renovations we will be making on our new house. I haven't taught a class in over a month, and I'm missing it!

I was so disappointed not being able to indulge in your focaccia. It looked so good. I've been eating fruit like a mad woman. Not that I'm complaining though. I haven't gotten my pizzas yet, but I'm waitin! ;) I just had a salad with sundried tomatoes at Taco Boy. Why can't I remember to add those to my salads at home? Maybe we can grab some coffee or a walkaroo this weekend!

Kris | iheartwellness.com said...

You make your own bread? You are amazing!

Waffles are a serious weakness of mine : ) I get the chocolate chip eggo's for Jake sometimes and I end up doing some damage to them - they are sooooo good!

Shannnon said...

I live in Charleston, too!

I JUST started a blog this week after stumbling upon some amazing food and exercise blogs that really inspired me. I saw yours mentioned on a page I was reading (i don't remember who's it was) and was excited to see someone writing who was also in Charleston. I didn't know the blog world existed until about 2 weeks ago so this was very exciting for me :-) Once I started reading it I realized I have taken your step class a bunch of times! I am an ESAC member and take step every chance I get. I LOVE IT. You are a great instructor. So i figured I should say hi :-)

Dawn (healthySDLiving) said...

Oh my goodness! An egg fruit pizza?!?! YUMMMMM! So jealous! :)
