I Chickened Out

Howdy! :)

I hope everyone’s day is off to a smooth start. I know that mine didn’t start off as planned…

I have a confession to make: I actually chickened out on the BodyPump class. 😯 It had nothing to do with the class itself; I was just super nervous that I wouldn’t make it to work on time, the showers would be full, etc. PLUS, I didn’t make it into bed last night until almost 11pm, so a 4:45 alarm was not sounding all that appealing. Instead, I slept an extra 30 minutes, got up, and tried out a new workout from Exercise on Demand: Kickboxing Bootcamp.

It was a 50 minute workout, and it totally kicked my boo-tayyy! WOW! I’m positive that I got a better workout doing that then BodyPump, so I was stoked. 😀


Thanks to my leftover chicken from last night’s dinner, today’s lunch was prepped and ready to go in no time.

One of my favorites: An “Empty Out The Veggie Drawer” kinda salad.


  • Spring mix
  • Broccoli
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Corn
  • Red Onion
  • Carrots
  • Leftover roasted zucchini
  • Italian grilled chicken
  • Athenos reduced-fat Feta cheese


I have high hopes for this bad boy. 😀


I also packed myself a fresh pear and an un-photographed mini cashew cookie larabar, just in case hunger strikes. 😉


After work today, Jay and I are headed to check out some more kitchen stuff! 😀

Question for the Afternoon:

When’s the last time you switched up your workout plan for the better?

    I started taking dance classes to get a more interesting workout. I’ve noticed that it’s a better form of exercise for me most of the time because I get so bored! I stay more engaged and pay more attention to what I’m doing now.

    Since moving to the city for school, I walk about 2 miles a day to and from classes if not more and if I decide to leave my apartment to run an errand that’s another couple of miles. That being said, I scaled back on my workouts a bit and concentrated more on the elliptical rather than running to make sure I don’t overwork myself. I have felt so much better since the switch and notice a huge difference in my energy levels.

    That big veggie bowl looks like something that I definitely need in my diet! I love how you threw in the grilled chicken too for some added protein :) YUM!

    I started taking karate 3 months ago which just may be the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I’ve finally found something that’s great for stress relief, exercise, teaches me self-defense and is lots of fun. Everyone should give it a try!
