What can I say? I was born classy.
Today has been CRAZY. I don't think I've stopped going since 5:20 AM when I woke up this morning, and I just got my 9:00 dinner in. I hate eating that late, but sometimes you just do what you can! I hope your hump day has been great! :)
Last night was our first night of BOOT CAMP, and it was so much fun! The group that came worked their TAILS off. I'm so proud of you guys! I can't wait to see the awesome results you are going to get! I've had some emails and comments asking if it's possible to attend single classes. It totally is, so email me at megolina21 at gmail.com if you want more info about it!
The peeps over at Naturally Nutty sent me some of their delicious almond butter and peanut butter to review. Check out these flavors...
I sampled the cinnamon vanilla almond butter with a crisp and delicious, and monstrous might I add, fuji apple. It tasted like the apple pie apples from rocky mt. chocolate factory or the cinnamon sugar almonds you get at Christmas time. Anyways...it was REALLY good. I would definitely recommend it. I think it would be absolutely delightful on some whole wheat toast. Try it.
I hope this close up makes you drool.
I also had a bunch of you ask me how the reheating of the crock pot steel cut oats went. I am happy to report they tasted AWESOME. All the more reason you should totally try them! I made a batch with four servings, and put three into individual containers in the fridge so I could have them for breakfast this week. It made things so easy. I just popped them into the microwave and pulled them out, gave them a good stir and added all the delicious toppings I could think of. My favorite batch consisted of the Naturally Nutty Chocolate Butter Toffee PB, a drizzle of honey, some cinnamon, and a chopped up banana.
Oh sweet goodness. It made the 4 degree morning drive to work today a little more enjoyable. I'm not lying it was 4 degrees. I have a blanket I keep in my car that gets wrapped around me INSTANTLY and the heat goes full blast. There were people running outside.
4 degrees + 5 AM + darkness + ice + running = no thank you crazy people GO BACK TO BED!
Also...because I told you I don't like to waste food. I thought I'd show you another great way to eat the Black Bean Quinoa Salad Recipe. I made this tasty concoction for lunch today with my leftovers.
I was asked to teach a Zumba/Hip Hop aerobics class for a church group tonight. I went straight from spinning, and so I was a sweaty disaster. (Whenever I call myself a disaster my friend calls me, "Katrina." Funny, no? Not funny...maybe inappropriate?)
Anyways...It was a good time! I have danced my whole life, but I've only done ONE Zumba class. Good think I know all about the fake til' you make it principle in life. :) I hope you had an awesome day. I'm SO glad so many of you have entered to win the Resolutions Remix. If you haven't, do it now, duh. xoxoxo
Do you Zumba? Are there any other group fitness classes you like? I know it's all the rage, but I prefer turbo kick, spinning, yoga, and step. I'm a certified group fitness instructor, but I don't teach any classes aside from my boot camp. Do you run at crazy hours or crazy temperatures? I'm a total running snob. I refuse to run outside if it's too cold or too hot. I pick the treadmill over crappy weather, always. I don't like to run in the dark alone either. I prefer not to get kidnapped. :)
