So I wanted to tell you guys a little bit more about Zumba since my post was a quick one last night! My teacher was amazing first of all – she is a former NFL cheerleader/dancer – and she can WORK IT! She had routines that were FUN to do and were set to awesome, pumping, Latin music – with some Britney Spears worked in…seriously, Britney makes everything better!! As I mentioned last night, this class was about letting go. I could feel about five minutes in that my shoulders were still tight and I was watching myself in the mirror making sure I was doing all the “moves” right…then I said, you know what…screw it. I just completely let go and had FUN. I was seriously that girl in class laughing and smiling the whole time – I can honestly tell you I have never done that in an exercise class! That’s the thing though – this didn’t feel like boring, ugh-I-have-to-do-this exercise! The routines were fresh, the music was inspiring…ugh it was just the best – I’m DEFINITELY going back!! Oh, and I sweat my buns off – seriously, I was drenched!
Ok, so to recap, Zumba = awesomeness. You all need to try it. Oh, and my pregnant sister-in-law who I went with, ROCKED it – she was smokin’ hot mama!
For breakfast today, I had what I’ve been craving for a long time – Apple Crisp Oatmeal! My bowl had:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup each of water and skim milk
- 1 medium Braeburn apple, chopped
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- toasted almonds & coconut
- sprinkle of cinnamon sugar
- splash of vanilla and cinnamon
Ahhh sugar, I love you :) No seriously, there isn’t that much sugar in here, but it tasted sweet as pie! Well, no, sweet as Apple Crisp!! MMMM!!!
The steam fogged up my lens!
For lunch I had a salad version of last night’s VeggiePatch Falafel Ball wrap! I combined:
- Mixed greens
- VeggiePatch Falafel balls
- Vine ripened tomato
- Red Onion
- Yogurt dressing
I mowed (pronounced “mao-wed”) my wrap last night and I expect to do the same with this salad! This dressing literally took 10 seconds to put together and it is so tasty! And those falafel balls – so spicy – not hot spicy, but flavor spicy. I could eat about 26 of these, easy!
I also packed a cinnamon roll Yoplait Light yogurt. CINNAMON ROLL!! I’m psyched to try this flavor :)
Tonight we are celebrating my Dad’s birthday, which is actually tomorrow, with a grill out over here at our house. Can’t say too much about it, because Pop’s reads the blog – hi Pops!! :D I can’t wait to give him his gift, he is going to be SO pumped!
Do you like giving or receiving gifts better? Obviously it’s great to receive gifts, but I get such a kick out of giving people gifts that I know they will just absolutely love!!
Oh, I finally remembered to take my camera on my morning mom walk – enjoy the lilacs!!
Soooo fragrant…some woman drove by and looked at my mom and I like we were crazy because our noses were buried in the flowers!
Have a SUPER Tuesday everyone!
