When Ryan and I went to bed last night, we set the alarm for 6:30 a.m. rather than the usual 5 a.m. Ryan wanted to take the day off and I figured I’d take Sadie for a run when I first awoke.
Well, pancakes sounded more appealing than a run when the alarm went off and by the time I typed up my morning blog post and sent off a couple of important emails, the temperatures were in the mid-80s and only climbing. Not ideal for a heat-sensitive pup!
Okay, I just wasn’t feelin’ a run.
I assumed today would just turn into a rest day, but when I saw that my gym offered an early afternoon Zumba class, I decided to take advantage of the class and move my booty after spending the day parked in front of the computer.
Typically the Zumba classes at my gym take place in the gymnasium, but today’s class was in a back room that unfortunately had mirrors. Let’s just say no one needs to see this girl trying to Zumba around the room… especially this girl. My dance moves should only be seen by intoxicated people in a controlled environment, such as a club, bar or wedding dance floor.
(Hiiii Laurel. In our defense, this was a cowboys and camo social in college.)
(Air guitar with the help of Ryan. Obviously. And I have no idea what I am wearing.)
(Yes, we managed to find a bar in Miami that gave out styrofoam cups. It was awesome.)
The moves is my repertoire are a pathetic (but enthusiastic!) sight. Fortunately, I’m pretty darn positive no one watches each other during Zumba and just focuses on the instructor, so I’m fairly certain everyone’s eyes were spared.
Before Zumba, I made myself an early lunch.
I prepared a plate of salmon salad with leftover salmon from last night’s dinner, plus red pepper, corn, mushrooms, light mayo, Dijon mustard and dill.
Served with a side of roasted Brussels sprouts!
As part of the Best Body Boot Camp program I am following, participants are encouraged to make two weekly goals. My goals for this week are to drink a ton of water and fill half of my plate with vegetables during at least two meals of the day. So far, so good! (Just FYI for those who have asked, Tina announced plans for another boot camp that will start in October today!)
I rounded out my meal with a small bowl of white chocolate covered pretzels for something sweet.
Sweet plus salty in all its glory!
Question of the Afternoon
- Please tell me about your dance moves. In detail. Should they be seen by all? Seen by none? Seen only by drunk people who can fully appreciate their majesty?
