Back at it for my favorite things from the week. It was a treacherous move yesterday out of my NYC apartment and into a storage unit as I prepare for my next move September 1st. My lovely friend is taking me in for the month and I am excited to try out a new area of the city before I move into my permanent place in a month. Luckily, this time, I had some movers do the work and was able to give my family a break from walking up and down 5 flights of stairs but I looking forward to the journey ahead! So now here we go..
1. I’m Going to Miss This View!
As much as our apartment building drove us nuts the past 2 years, I met some cool people, saw the Empire State Building every single day and enjoyed some amazing restaurants in the area. It’s funny how in NYC there are so many places to go but you end up sticking around your area more often than you think. I will definitely visit my favorite places again but am excited to move more Uptown and see what they have to offer :)
2. Parker House Fun Run
Last Saturday, I jetted home for my first ever Parker House Fun Run experience. Basically, its a 2 mile easy run around Spring Lake before ending up at everyone’s favorite summer bar: Parker House for an hour of unlimited beer and bagels. It was absolute madness! People were drinking and dancing like it was midnight and not 10:00 in the morning but I had a blast and loved enjoying it with my friends and brother!
3. Body Space Fitness
I tried a workout with some of my lululemon team at BSF: Body Space Fitness in NYC. It is located on 14th btwn 6th and 7th on the 5th floor and is mainly a personal training facility for athletes. They tailor your workout to your sport and also host some group fitness classes in the evenings and on weekends. It was a really dynamic and creative workout and the trainers were super fun. The coolest thing about it? They have an Anti-Gravity treadmill! Basically you are running in an air pocket with 0 impact. More on that next week..
4. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
I am so in love with this book by Mindy Kaling, especially as a 20 something girl living in the city. She is one of the writers of The Office and The Mindy Project if you don’t already know her and she is hilarious, relatable and honest about everything from finding a cockroach in your apartment to flubbing her first interview with NBC. You should definitely put this on your Summer Reading list!
5. Early Morning Fireman Carry at FIT RxN
I love how FIT RxN’s locations have an outdoor space to utilize. With the beautiful weather this time of year, no one wants to spend anymore time than they have to inside so its awesome to get your workout in under the sun. This past Tuesday, I taught my weekly 30/30 Express class in Hoboken and for the 2nd part of the workout (after 20 minutes of Spin) I took the group outside to complete a partner workout of fireman carrys, burpees with a high five and pushups before calling it a day! They killed it. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)
