Active Day!

Saturday, January 07, 2012

Well, I woke up this morning around 8:30 (thats late for me!) I tossed and turned all night. Anyway, I had looked at the gym class schedule the night before, and wanted to hit zumba at 10:15, but before that, I wanted to do some running to get my heart rate up before the class. So, I had my coffee (a must or i get a migraine), a promax bar, got dressed, woke up and sat for a bit, then headed to the gym.

IT. WAS. PACKED. All of the treadmills were taken, so I hopped on the elliptical and did that for 15 minutes until I saw the line for zumba getting long, so I got into line. Finally it was time for class. I had a great time. Again, I'm not exactly coordinated, but it was FUN! Todays class was all latin dancing, and I loved it. I really do want to take a salsa dancing class sometime!! I burned 500 calories in the class.

After class, there was a treadmill open, so I ran for almost an hour and got my big calorie burn, then hit the bike as a cool down. The result? 2 hours and 1200 calories WOO HOOO!!!!

It was past lunch at that point, and I was starving. I headed across the street to Panera Bread, and had lunch there. Came home showered, did things around the house and then headed out again.

Got a pedicure (a must for me), ran errands, hit sports chalet for more sports tape for the ol knee, and then Wahoos for dinner (had a burrito).

Came home, now I'm just relaxing, watching "Love Happens" (Jennifer Aniston - LOVE LOVE LOVE her and Aaron Eckhart). Problem is, I watch romantic comedies and I get that lonely feeling. Sheesh, some nights I am such a girl!

Not sure what I'm going to end up doing tomorrow, but I MAY attempt a spinning class (really not positive about this one). Not sure the knee or I can handle it!!! But i will definitely be working out. I need the stress relief!

Hope you guys had a good day, I'm in a sad mood now, so really doing my best to not turn the emotions into a binge!

    I'm jealous of your awesome workout! I did get a walk in today so that was nice, but your calorie burn was awesome! Sorry to hear that you're bummed. But the right person will come along eventually!

    Stay away from the kitchen. It's not worth it. You've been doing so well. If you need something, have your tea and chocolate oat bran bar. You can do this. Definitely try spin tomorrow. I don't think it'll aggravate your knee. I think it's less pressure on it. Let me know if you do.

    Loved my Zumba class today. The instructor was so good. It helps b/c I know her, too. Amazing body! When I grow up, I want to look like her!! How do you know how much calories you're burning? Do you use a heart rate monitor or what? I should start using something.
