Happy Monday! :)
I had a great day ~ spent some time visiting some of my wonderful friends at RTI ~ and here's a special shout out to those that went to lunch, Jenny, Cass, Pete, Tracy and Catisha (extra special to my blog follower(s) in that group). Had a great time with you all! And the food was nothing to turn your nose up at, we ate at the Buttery Sweet Bakery & Cafe in Alachua, Florida. I highly recommend the Angry Asian sandwich and Summer Strawberry Salad. The sandwich is turkey, bacon, gorgonzola cheese, avocado and chipotle mayo. I get half the sandwich (which is large enough as is) and half salad which has dark greens, strawberries, cheese, walnuts and lime coconut salad dressing. Can I say yum? Seriously. I love that place.
This evening I tried a new exercise - Zumba! I've been invited about 50 times to a class but never had the nerve. Tonight I went with my mom and figured I would never have to see those people again so I didn't mind. I loved how there were no mirrors and shades on the windows. It was fun - a fast and high impact workout that lasted the solid 60 minutes. My legs kept up fine, but my arms will be in serious pain tomorrow I am sure. I was never so out of breath that I had a tough time, probably being a runner helped me there. It was a good experience. I enjoyed it and think I may consider adding 1 Zumba workout to my weekly regimen...we'll see.
So another good day, even with eating out:
INPUT: (food facts):
674 calories burned (estimated based on high impact aerobics) in 60 minutes of Zumba.
Excited to start the week well - looking forward to more time off to enjoy and make progress!
