The return of Core Fusion

Posted on January 27, 2014. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Yesterday ended up being a very productive and fun day. I started off with a trip to the farmer’s market for some produce and stopped into the Amish Market to pick up a couple of supplemental items, including a whole chicken. I roasted the chicken later (my first time!) after rubbing butter, salt & pepper all over it. It turned out so tender and juicy and will last me throughout the week with chicken salad and more. 

After my grocery errands I met up with a friend at the Exhale Spa at the Gansevoort Hotel in Meatpacking. It was a return to Core Fusion! The first time I took Core Fusion was part of a bachelorette weekend (with the same friend in fact) and it was super challenging. Well, yesterday was no different and I worked my butt off. The first 10 minutes of class were filled with arms, arms, arms, and planks, planks, planks. From there we did thighs, butts and even more thighs before taking it home with abs. Oh man, oh man! We still have two more classes to go (we booked a 3 class package through Gilt City) and I think we might be leaning toward yoga or cardio. 

We stumbled out of there and went right to Le Pain Quotidien to refuel. I had the Tuscan white bean and prosciutto salad, which totally hit the spot. And of course, what would a visit to LPQ be without some bread and Brunnette. So addictive!


After lunch I headed off to do my first New York Cares project. I signed up to do post-soup kitchen clean up at a church. From 3:00 – 5:00pm I washed chairs, wiped down tables, swept floors, mopped and did other random tasks. It was a lot of work! Needless to say, between Core Fusion and the manual labor, I am extremely sore today (like can barely sit down on the toilet sore…yea). I really enjoyed getting out there and doing my first project and look forward to doing many more. 

I only watched part of the Grammy’s – the most important part – and saw Beyonce and Jay-Z’s performance. I also checked out some of the other performances online later and loved John Legend and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – so much love.
