Back In Action

     So after a 2 week hiatus from any on purpose excersize, I put Zumba back in the dvd player on Monday. Man, who would have thought after such a short time that it would be harder. I talked myself through it though and did it again today. Got to stay focused if I'm going to make my June 1st goal! Note to self: Don't take a two week break from things!
                                                         Not Me (I Wish)... Motivation!!

     Boy am I glad that the folks at Zumba put out DVDs... I don't think I could shake all this in public. I will say this though, I thought I had no rythm, but doing this workout I am finding that this girl (me) has rythm after all. I know that I don't look anything like the people on the T.V. but I can do it and for me that is saying something. 9 Months ago I strained to walk down the street. I am always amazed at the things my body can do.
     Today I have my day planned out (food wise) up until my last snack, and I am pretty stoked! I did rather well. I decided to share some of my meals with you:

230 calories

Fruit & Yougurt Parfait

1 small light blueberry yogurt
1 medium banana
1/4 cup oat blenders with almonds (cereal)

249 calories

Grilled Chicken & Spinach Salad

3 oz grilled boneless skinless chicken breast
1 handful fresh spinach
1/2 cup mushrooms
2 tbsp light house chunky blue cheese
(I don't sacrifice my fav salad dressing, just make room in my calorie budget)

405 Calories

Grilled Steak Fajitas
made this as a meal for the fam so all my totals were split 6 ways below are the aprox amnts I myself consumed.

3 oz lean grilled steak
1/6 red onion
1/4 cup frozen bell pepper mix
1/2 cup mushrooms
fajita seasoning
1 flour tortila (halved)
2 tbsp fat free sour cream

     I don't normally share my food but I have seen it done on other's blogs and thought that it was a helpful thing to add. I love getting ideas from others for my own food, it adds variety to my life and I love playing with them to make them suit my tastes and needs. 


  1. Nice blog and posts .
    Visit my blog LOYFLY

  2. You are making me hungry! That food looks good. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Mmmm... That food was yummy. Hopefully I will get my butt in gear and post more food pics soon. I want to add more to my recipe page but somehow feel there should be a pic to go with them. Things sound better when you can see them, I think.
