Weekend Recap...

Happy Monday! Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!

My weekend was BUSY but very very fun!!

The definite highlight of my weekend was the "Best of Britney Spears" dance class I took on Sunday. It was soooo much fun!! And such a great workout!! It's a 4 week workshop (every Sunday in May) for $40 and each class is an hour long. The instructors made a mix of 4 Brit songs: Oops I Did It Again, I'm A Slave For You, Me Against the Music and Circus, and each week we learn the choreography for one of the songs. On the 4th week we will put all 4 songs together for the complete routine. I've never taken a dance class before but it has always been something I wanted to do and let me tell you I will definetly be taking many more!! I must say the choreography was pretty challenging for my first class but hey it's Britney Spears what do you expect? Boy did I get a workout, by the time I was done my face was beat red and I was pouring sweat. I think my next class will be a 6 week Bellydancing workshop! :-) I'm super excited about that too.

I'm starting today with healthy food, no soda, no sweets for now and lotssss of water. I made my food journal this weekend so I will be recording everything I eat in there so I can see a visual and keep me better accountable. I made veggie quesadillas this weekend for lunch this week. I added 2 slices of turkey breast for a little protein. I also brought in 2 snacks to eat at 9:30 and 2:30 to keep me nice and full throughout the day. I also bought some portobella mushrooms this weekend (yummy!) and will be buying some ground turkey to fill them up for this recipe I found online. Yum I can't wait!!

I knew I wouldn't get up at 5 this morning to exercise so I didn't even attempt it but tomorrow starts me morning routine so it's not a choice!! Tonight, however, I am going to my friends house to practice our dance class routine so that will be some good exercise and I'd like to start doing extra ab work right before I go to bed (especially lower abs!!)

Well that's all I have for now. Hope you guys have a fun and successful Monday!



  1. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Anything that is going to get you into the good life, and feels enjoyable, that's the main thing.

    It's good to know you are finding things, that are starting to get you into the right frame of mind, and I ma sure with time and patience all the things you are trying to do, will work out.

    GOOD LUCK again, and best wishes.

    :-) :-).


  2. That class sounds like fun! I'm horrible at dancing, but I'd do it if it was offered where I live!
