I was majorly bummed that Zumba was canceled because this is definitely the highlight of my week. So many reasons why:
1) I get out of the house
2) I am getting an awesome work out and it doesn't feel like work
3) I get to flail my arms and shake my hips (which I normally do in the kitchen daily by myself) with a bunch of middle aged women
4) I get to secretly think I am the greatest dancer on earth. I am very uncoordinated just like the rest. But I secretly think I am the best.
5) After I go to a session I have it in my head that I am basically Shakira and am the most fit person on this planet
6) I come home and make a healthy dinner and don't want to snack.
ok ok that's it. I just LOVE zumba. I had to make up for it so I was on and off the tread-mill all day, lifted some weights, did sit ups periodically, squats, jumping jacks, dance moves... in the kitchen of course, and some stretching. For lunch, I ate a cucumber sandwich (my fave) with eh hemm low fat cream cheese and only half the amount I normally dump on my bread, some yogurt, and a piece of cheese. After I devoured that in 2.25994 seconds I had the heavenly taste of cream cheese in my mind and decided I HAD to make cream cheese cookies for...J. HA who am I kidding I felt I deserved one of my fave little treats. Try em!!!
Orange Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies
I had one of those deliciously creamy, melt in your mouth, savory, scrumptious cookies and remembered J doesn't like them all that much :p so I had to make something for him. So I quickly whipped up some peanut butter cookies, but flourless, a little bit more healthy right??
I of course had to try one of those out and mmmm were they good.
Anyhow, J came home and was loving all of the aromatic goodness making its way from the kitchen into his nostrils. But immediately asked what was for dinner. SHOOT I forgot about that part. After all of my hard work talking to my mom on the phone for 2 hours, baking and exercising I forgot dinner. So, I am embarrassed to say we plopped some wieners on the bbq, dropped them into some white buns and drenched those hot wieners with sauce. After we let those bad boys "digest" while watching a documentary I started to feel guilty, really really guilty. So I went back on that tread-mill and ran until my mouth was so watery I was sure I was about to vomit. I worked through it, did some more squats, and sit ups and didn't feel as guilty.
Everyone needs a little motivation, a little inspiration, a little why the hell is my body not perfect like those skinny bitches on tv. So I thought, let me look up some of my fave celebs and make that my goal. I have never in my life have came close to having abs and pretty much told myself its not possible, but let's check it out see what bodies I love. These girls instantly came to mind....
|Let's all keep in mind Brooke Burke has popped out 4 babes and still manages to look freakishly hot|
|Megan Fox you are a sex goddess|
|Well really any woman would wish to have the digustingly perfect body of a Victorias Secret model. But Marisa Miller just gets me every time|
this is part of the reason why so many young girls have eating disorders
