The rest of my Friday was really busy. I had to finish birthday shopping for my sister and getting her a cheesecake tart thingy for the family get together later that night. This doesn't sound like much, but when my sister was coming over directly after work it left little time to spare. I managed to finish everything before my sister showed up and then we headed out to do a little bit of shopping. My sister had some Kohl's cash to use and ended up getting a really pretty top and a new bra for only a buck and some change out of pocket! Later that evening we went out for dinner for my sister's birthday after opening presents. I'm pretty sure this was her favorite gift from my dad:
|Her first electric guitar!|
Later that evening, after visiting with in-laws, we went to look at cars. Not a total waste of time, but I'm still without a car. We ended up not getting home until almost 9 at which point I decided I was not cooking dinner and so we decided on a completely
healthy, quick and easy meal: Taco Bueno! I figured I had only eaten once all day with none of my usual snacks or even breakfast, plus I had worked out 6 days this week, so I justified to myself that Taco Bueno was certainly acceptable. (I still haven't decided if I was just fooling myself.) Sunday was a lazy day for the most part. Breaking Bad was premiering that night so Mark and I decided to watch all the episodes available On Demand to refresh ourselves. Man, that show is so suspenseful and keeps you on edge the entire time! So later that afternoon, we hit the grocery store, went to visit with Mark's grandparents and ran a couple other errands before returning home where I finished laundry, cooked dinner and got ready for the coming week. Breaking Bad did not disappoint, I can tell it's going to be another awesome season! I had a couple of great classes yesterday, the evening one especially. I had another pretty full class and someone came up to me after class to tell me how much she enjoyed and loved my class. It seems here lately that after most classes I have someone come visit with me about how much she enjoyed the class. I love it! I am not sure if I ever thought I would be a successful Zumba instructor, of it it was just the thought of never trying that prompted me to go through with it, but I'm so glad I did. I like to know that if even for only an hour I make someone's life a little bit more enjoyable! Tonight's workout plan? Body Pump and a 5 mile run. I'm actually kind of nervous about the run.... it's been so long since I've run on a treadmill that I worry about my speed. I'm hoping for 10 minute miles. I hope to get my speed back into the 9:30-9:45 range by the end of the summer, maybe even faster by mid fall! Welps, now I have to get to work for a lovely Tuesday!
