Heyyyyyyy! It’s FRIDAY Do you have any big weekend plans??
Thank you so much to those of you who left sweet comments on my Zumba videos. I absolutely love Zumba and I really hope some of you decide to check out a class!
Here’s yesterday’s re-cap:
I was so stoked to try one of the Hot n’ Healthy Pure Protein squares that Laura sent me. I heated it up for 13 seconds….
Oh. My. Goodness.
That’s exactly what it tasted like: Cinabon. Absolutely INCREDIBLE.
I have to find more of these bars ASAP because I have a feeling they won’t last very long!!! Thank you again, Laura for my newfound bar addiction
I met my friend Ashley on base and we did a half hour of Pilates abs and 35 minutes of upper body weights. The exercises included V-rope hammer curls, triceps extension, assisted pull-ups, lat raises, seated row and chest presses.
When I got home, it was snack time so I munched a Larabar: (I think this is my favorite flavor because it tastes like a MACAROON)
And 2 egg whites with spinach, a little goat cheese and cafe:
I spent the morning cleaning the casa, then got ready for work.
WORK GOT CANCELED AGAIN! Teach was still sick, so I didn’t have to TA. I just sat at the desk for an hour and entered grades, then went home!
For lunch I had a Morningstar veggie patty with tomato, spinach, ketchup and mustard on Ezekiel:
And a fruit plate:
Then I worked on the Zumba videos for a little while, took the puppers out and then had afternoon snack before heading to teach step.
(The only kind of “date” I’ve had in the last 5 1/2 months…come back, Pilot!)
Does anyone else feel like EVERYONE is sick and that they choose to hack their germs all over you?! At work, people will come up to me and be like “Gina *hack, hack*, will you please *cough, cough* upload the graded assignments *sputter, sputter*, for me *cough, HACK*?”
Emergen-C always helps me to keep from getting sick
Teaching step was awesome. They messed up the schedule and had put that class was canceled, but 14 people still showed up. 14 ROWDY people who kept yelling and cheering. I loved it.
When I got home, I was starving, so I reheated some brown rice, tofu and veggies I made a couple of weeks ago and froze. I added some shrimp and broccoli:
It was sooo good!
I spent the evening watching Grey’s and Private Practice instead of doing homework and they were AMAZING. Season 2 quality. Grey’s had gotten SO SLOOOOOOW lately and I’m very stoked to see it pick up again!
For b-fast this morning, I had a blueberry b-fast cookie:
I’m going to do some yoga (it’s recovery day), run to targizzle and buy random things I don’t really need, PetSmart, walk the puppies on base, meet with Jeni to make goodies to send the pilots, then going to see He’s Just Not That Into You. I love Friday
Hope you have a wonderful day!
