Workout Activity....
After work yesterday, I was back at the gym for Tab's TBC class.  Total Body Conditioning, and she tweaked the format to go Boot Camp style. It was brutal and awesome! I have no idea how many jumping jacks I did, let along varieties of jumping jacks! And the Squats, Lunges... Yowza! A little kickboxing, a little step, some weights... it was terrific!

Back home, I had Swai & steamed asparagus, while the fam had Taco Salad, then got to relax for about an hour before it was time to start prepping the ice-cream. Is it just me, or are the days getting shorter? Lol. Too much to do!

This morning, my chest is soooo sore! And my glutes! Woohoo! And then it was leg-day. NO HAMSTRING PAIN! Well, nothing "bad", just good 'ol muscle work! YES!!! Running late, I flew back home after my workout with the WGT (World's Greatest Trainer), got ready (20 minutes! Nice!) while gobbling up a Blueberry protein muffin and a cup of coffee (really kids, quit taking my conditioner! and my hairbrush!), then as I'm dashing out the door (I'm gonna get to work on time!), Ariel rolls out of bed (late) and needs a ride to work. This makes me late, which puts me in a rush, which is the reason I made the poor choice to speed on the way to work after dropping her off.

Ah, I see you know where this is heading.

My first freakin' ticket in 18 years. Dagnabbit! I'm so mad at myself! Ha, and a little at Ariel. Lol. Drat! Thankfully I can do online traffic school, but now I've got to come up with the fine. DRAT!! I'd kick myself, but my legs are wiped out from the workout. Argh.

Anyway, hungry and annoyed, I finally made it to the office and had my oatmeal. This put me in a better mood. Lol. Today, aside from work, haha, I have to make a dash to WalMart to get some photos printed and buy a bag of Swai (forgot that one on Sunday, oops!). Then after work I have a cardio homework. Tab has given me the challenge of attending a Zumba class. By myself. I scared. Zumba is traumatic to me. I am uncoordinated and easily frustrated. When I am frustrated, I tear up. I hate to cry. Really, really hate to cry. I have only attended ONE Zumba class that I did not cry in. ONE. Oy. 5:30 pm today will find me in the last row of the Group Fit room, hoping desperately I do not injure anyone with my innate klutz. Please, oh please, don't let me injure someone!

So for now, I am putting it out of my mind, and hoping I'll end up having some fun, but now I am ready to eat. Ha, when aren't I? Seriously though, it's time for my snack. FOOD! Plus, this is the snack-time I can have fruit and I have a big juicy peach just waiting to be savored!
Buh-bye!    :-)


  1. you can do it! (zumba)

    I am so not coordinated either so I stick tot he machines but have all the faith in you!

    jealous you get to have a peach! 18 days to go!

  2. Chelle,
    I tried Swai this weekend and loved it. I would have never even looked for it if it wasn't for your blog. You are an inspiration to all us girls of a certain age!! Good luck!!!


  3. AFineBalance - I'm so excited for you! 18 days!!! You're nearly there! Woohoo! I'm rootin' for you!

    Patricia - Thank you so much! :-D
    I've been diggin' the Swai... lower calories so I can eat more of it, lol! 5 oz of Swai or 3 oz of Chicken...hmmmm, yeah, that's easy! Swai! :-0 LOL!!

  4. Love the look of the protein ice cream ... will definately be trying that out.

  5. Wow everything is clicking along for you which sounds great! What type of Coconut Flour do you use?

  6. Thanks :-)
    Typically I use Bob's Red Mill, but I just found one that's only $2 more, but twice the flour (2lbs) so I'll be trying that as soon as I run out of Bob's. I keep them in the freezer until I need them, to maintain freshness. :-)
