Loves!!!! So sorry I’ve been MIA:( I’ve been sooooooo busy, and there are lots of changes happening. I’m super excited, but I gotta tell ya, a few panic attacks during the last couple days. Been playing catch up since coming back from Vegas along with many other things.

Ok, where do I begin….as you know, I’m gearing up for my ZUMBA instructor license, and I’ll be teaching my first classes starting April 1st. Ahhhhhhhhhh, I’m freaking a bit. Ive gotta learn 15 songs by that day. On top of that, I’ve been totally busy at work, hence, the late blogging. So yes, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment, but I’ve got great news! I’m a pretty lucky girl, I must say, cuz my boss has agreed to let me work only 4 days instead of 5 days a week. I know, pretty amazing. Starting April 1st, I will be having Wednesdays off, which will allow me the time to catch up, teach a Zumba class, and get my blogging done.
I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels to gain that balance.

Though I’ve been neglecting the computer the last few days, my workouts have been on fire! Im planning on learning 2 new songs (choreography) for next weeks ZUMBA classes. Getting my feet wet I guess you could say;) this weekend it’s on…I’ll be practicing in front of the mirror for like 10 hrs. Lol.

Although a slow start to the week, Wednesday I kicked ass with a fasted cardio session in the a.m.

I highly doubt that I’m the only one that listens to hardcore rap when they work out….
This shit gets me going. Sometimes I sing along, and forget others can hear me… Whoops.

Burned 524 cals before ever even realizing I was awake. :)

Of course after a workout, I’m starved. I felt like something fresh, green, and hearty, so I made up some random stuffed egg wrap that was delicious! I had loads of kale I needed to use up, and seeing as St. Patty’s day is around the corner, I figured green is what’s up.

For the ” Green Protein Egg Wrap”

INGREDIENTS:

A handful of clean kale

1 tsp chia seeds

1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

1/4 cup egg whites

Blended all ingredients in the vitamix, greased a square flat pan, and poured mixture. On med heat, allow to cook like a thin crepe. Or like you would cook an omelette without the folding, just flip.

For the filling

1-2 tbsp fromage blanc or nonfat sour cream or Greek yogurt

1 tbsp hot & sweet mustard ( I like Trader Joes brand)

1/4 thinly sliced apple

Low sodium turkey slices

This is a great alternative to eating a sandwich on two pieces of bread. This is completely LOW CARB.

My lunches have been totally predictable. Same shit, different day. ;) I don’t mind though. I’m obsessed with salmon right now. I bake a few fillets, and take them to luch everyday with a side salad. Healthy, filling, and full of essential fatty acids.

After work, I headed straight to a doubled up workout. 1 hour ZUMBA + 1 hr body sculpting. I told you I killed it today;)

20130314-125615.jpg
By 9:00 p.m, I was dunzoooooooo. I gotta take as many classes as possible to get ready for my teaching debut;)

20130314-125648.jpg

Favorite part: the cool down. just as important as the workout itself.
